No uproar when Nusrat Jahan Ruhi takes oath as Nusrat Jahan Ruhi Jain but all hell breaks loose when it comes to Sadhvi Pragya

The mention of Swami Purna Chetnanad Avdheshanand Giri suffixed to Sadhvi Pragya's name evoked sharp disapproval from the opposition members who said such a thing wasn’t permitted.

The Trinamool Congress MP from Basirhat, West Bengal, actor Nusrat Jahan, took the oath as the member of the Lok Sabha today in the name of Ishwar and concluded with the chants of Vande Mataram. Nusrat Jahan who couldn’t take the oath before as she recently got married to her long-time beau businessman Nikhil Jain on June 19 in Turkey.

It is pertinent to note that the newly elected legislator took oath of a member of Lok Sabha as Nusrat Jahan Ruhi Jain and not with her maiden name Nusrat Jahan Ruhi.

Her nomination affidavit filed with the parliament in April 2019, mentions her name as Nusrat Jahan Ruhi.

Jahan’s oath wasn’t accompanied with wild shouts and protests as was the case with BJP MP Sadhvi Pragya. Last week when Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur suffixed her name with her spiritual guru, the opposition party members in the parliament created a ruckus over the matter.

Amidst the ensuing cacophony, Thakur defended saying that it was her full name and that she had mentioned the same in the form filled for oath taking. The mention of Swami Purna Chetnanad Avdheshanand Giri suffixed to her name evoked sharp disapproval from the opposition members who said such a thing wasn’t permitted.

The Pro tem Speaker Virendra Kumar sought to know from the Lok Sabha Secretary General, her full name. Kumar reiterated the objections raised by Lok Sabha officials and then directed Sadhvi that only the name written in her election certificate issued by the returning officer would go on record.

This is in stark contrast to how swimmingly Nusrat Jahan of TMC took oath as Nusrat Jahan Ruhi Jain. None of the opposition lawmakers obstructed the parliamentary proceeding as Nusrat took an oath with her married name. The protestors who raised objections against Sadhvi Pragya for using her full name had no qualms with TMC lawmaker Nusrat Jahan for using the name Nusrat Jahan Ruhi Jain for oath taking. BJP lawmakers are subjected to absolute adherence of the rules and laws while the same doesn’t apply to the non-BJP member of parliaments.
