Enchanting ‘Vande Matram’ and ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’ is considered to be the symbols of nationalism, as the rulers of the country have decided. But the independent moment started by the Congress Party in the 19th and 20th century had a different connotation, at the time all the Indian people both Hindus and Muslims united together because both of them had a common goal of ‘Sarajya’. But on today’s day this connotation of nationalism has changed, way different perception.

In our schools and colleges enchanting ‘Vande Matram’ has been made as a compulsory announcement during assembly. But the Muslim community in India are having a different views in this respect and taking this as a purely religious matter. They have their own Personal Law Board, they have their own reservation in this respect. According to their ‘Shariya’ Law, that debar them to enchant this word (Vande Matram). Here we have created an enamical situation.

Now enchanting ‘Vande Matram’ and ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’ has decided a two classes in India, one nationalist and other separatist. The concept of nationalism is murdered here. The human being in India is totally forgotten. Now, we have mainly two divisions of communities in India that are Hindus and Muslims which was the basis of division of India in 1947. Ever since the atmosphere in India is vitiated, also the recent shouting of Azadi in J.N.U campus has clearly vitiated the entire political situation in the states of Jammu and Kashmir. The Valley is totally disturbed at the moment.

The political ruler of the country (Bhartiya Janta Party, BJP) is unnecessarily raising the concept of nationalism. Honourable Shree Rabindranath Tagore had long ago written the book on nationalism. He had emphasized the human aspects of the people and associated this with the nature of the Earth. Man and nature go together, nature includes the earth and the man. Our geographical earth is bound. This very earth was divided in 1947. Now the people of Kashmir wants to divide this earth out of enmity – man against man. Our father of the nation (Mahatma Gandhi) had compositely thought about Hindus and Muslims. When he fought for the freedom of the country against the British Empire for the Independence. There was no question of Hindus and Muslims. All the people of India were Indian nationals, whether are in Hindu or Muslim. Then why do we have the question of national now, whether we enchant ‘Vande Matram’ or ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’ or remain silent, why we have to have the index of national or anti-national now. If we like to enchant ‘Vande Matram’ or ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’ or remain silent, our nationalism is impact. We should not have such rules that creates enemy in the society.

“With the banner of Nationalism in our hearts to build up a Mighty India, let us march forward on the path of duty.”

Nationalism is an infantile disease. It is the measles of mankind.
