Written by Ria Maheshwari

India is ready to celebrate the 70th Independence day on the other hand a notice issued by the Uttar Pradesh government that it is compulsory to sing the National Anthem and making a video of it on Independence Day. With the onset of independence day, it is obvious that some or the other thing need to happen. And this happened on the issue of singing our national anthem. The orders by Uttar Pradesh government recently, of making a video of singing our National Anthem on Independence day has offended few. According to them, there are certain phrases in the national anthem which are against the tenets of Islam, hence they are asking to refrain from singing and making a video of it.

They made the statement that is not against the law and Nation, we are in full support to encourage the national day of our country by hoisting the flag. Only, making videos and photography is against their notion. Sharia law has restricted in making the videos and photography as this is totally against the rule taught in the madrassas, which will further be openly flouting.

Qazi Maulana Aszad Raza Khan of Bareilly, later quoted about the Rajasthan Governor Kalyan Singh, who also raised the same thing ones. He says that our national anthem is praising the English rulers in the word ‘adhinayak’, and according to them ‘adhinayak’ is the only god they worship in Islam. But he is still in favor of celebrating our freedom with utmost love. So he said, we will sing ‘Saare Jahan Se Acha Hindustan Humara’ instead of our national anthem. And later asked the people to distribute sweets and hoist the flag.
