Hyderabad: When AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi walked through the benches to the podium to take the ‘oath’, opposition party MP leaders raised slogans of ‘Vande Mataram’ in Lok Sabha.
The Hyderabad MP dressed in a traditional sherwani, was hurled with slogans of ‘Jai Shree Ram’, ‘Vande Mataram’, as he walked past them through the benches and the MP raised his hands in response as if asking the fellow MPs to continue sloganeering against him, TT reports.

He calmly took the oath in ‘Urdu’ and then turned to answer those slogans and concluded with his “Jai Bheem, Jai Meem, Takbeer Allahu Akbar, Jai Hind”.
Asaduddin Owaisi, AIMIM on 'Jai Sri Ram' & 'Vande Mataram' slogans being raised in Lok Sabha while he was taking oath as MP: It is good that they remember such things when they see me, I hope they will also remember the constitution and deaths of children in Muzaffarpur. pic.twitter.com/THJN8n8out

State Home Minister G. Kishan Reddy, seated on the first row can be seen gesturing his party MPs to cut down on slogans.
While the whole sloganeering was going on targetting Hyderabad MP Asaduddin’s religion, none of the Ministers cared to respect the ‘Parliament’ rather heckled an elected MP with insults.
However, the sloganeering was described as ‘heckling’ by some Twitter users who resented the action saying it was insulting a democratically elected Member of Parliament.
Very nice reply sir…these slogans should be in temples not in parliament, even they don't have respect for these slogans,just to tease you they were shouting….
