TMC MP Nusrat Jahan takes oath in name of ‘Ishwar’, ends with ‘Vande Mataram’

Nusrat Jahan who was supposed to take an oath on June 19 had missed taking oath in the Lok Sabha because of her marriage.

Newly-elected Trinamool Congress MP from Basirhat, Nusrat Jahan-Ruhi Jain, on June 25 took oath as members of the Lok Sabha. As soon as the House met for the day Nusrat Jahan, the actor turned politician took oath in Bangla.

Nusrat Jahan who took the oath in the name of ‘Ishwar’ ended it with phrases such as Vande Mataram, Jai Hind and Joi Bangla.

Interestingly, on June 18, the Samajwadi Party leader, Shafiqur Rahman Barq, had stirred controversy by saying in Parliament that Vande Mataram is against Islam. He said this after taking oath as a member of the 17th Lok Sabha.

While many others who took oath in that session added Jai Hind, Vande Mataram, Jai Shree Ram and other such religious and nationalistic slogans after their oaths were over, Barq, after he completed taking his oath in Urdu, added, ‘Constitution of India Zindabad’. After that he said, ‘and as far as Vande Mataram is concerned, it is against Islam, we can not follow it’.

Meanwhile, the popular Bengali actress, Nusrat Jahan who was supposed to take an oath on June 19 had missed taking oath in the Lok Sabha because of her marriage. The day she was to take the oath, the Basirhat MP was in Turkey, where she married a Kolkata-based businessman Nikhil Jain on Wednesday.

Nusrat Jahan was severely trolled on the micro-blogging site for skipping her oath. Many slammed her on Twitter, calling her an irresponsible MP.

Nusrat Jahan had gained the limelight as soon as her name was announced as the TMC candidate for the Basirhat Lok Sabha seat on March 13, 2019. Her connection with the infamous Park Street rape case of Kolkata had cropped up as soon as Mamata Banerjee had announced the list of names of TMC candidates for the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. It was reported that one of the main accused Kader Khan, was Nusrat Jahan’s alleged longtime boyfriend and she was accused of shielding him and lying to the police about his whereabouts.

Meanwhile, Nusrat’s colleague and fellow first time MP, Mimi Chakraborty who won the Jadavpur Lok Sabha seat as a Trinamool Congress candidate had also skipped her oath in the Lok Sabha on June 19 as she was also in Turkey to attend the Nusrat’s wedding.
