New Delhi: ‘India Today Mind Rocks 2016′ brings AIMIM Chief Asaduddin Owaisi and Dr Subramanian Swamy, the two of the most outspoken leaders in politics to engage in heated verbal debates on various topics on patriotism.
During the noisy debate, Swamy branded Owaisi an “anti-national”, triggering loud cheers from the crowd, overwhelmingly consisting of youth waving mini tricolours.
“I won’t call Asaduddin Owaisi a traitor. But he is surely an anti-national. He is a rashtra-vidrohi,” Swamy said during the debate. The AIMIM chief reacted spontaneously, adding,
“I was called anti-national because I refused to say ‘Bharat Mata ki Jai’. I will not say it. I will not accept your slogan of religious nationalism. I feel pride in chanting ‘Jai Hind’,” Owaisi said.
“If someone like Dr Swamy writes and gives me this certificate that I’m an anti-national, then I would keep it safely with me.”
