Yes ‘Bharat Mata ki Jai’ is communal. Because it forces a certain mythological idea of motherland being a Devi, a deity.
This may suit your faith and religious philosophy but not people who believe in monotheism- one God.
It is clearly a majoritarian slogan. https://t.co/4HNewg0rVu

I don’t really know what to say but it’s absurd. I can’t understand what’s so offensive about “Mother India.”
I’m walking around Chennai and so many Muslim ladies are wearing Niqabs (the eyes are only seen).
I have female cousins who are completely #FreeInHijab but they can't send you a selfie unfortunately??♀️ because it isn't completely accepted in the muslim community to have your face on social media, because, you know, a woman must be kept hidden like a diamond ? https://t.co/lTlPglQ9uX

Why doesn’t Ms. Sherwani direct her tweets, passion and energy towards remedying this disgrace of these swaddled penguins (I’m not in the habit of mocking women but the hijabs and it’s related accessories are hateful apparels).
The question with Muslim “liberals” is their emphasis and emotional focus. Their motto is “offence is the best defence” so it’s far better to police Western, Israeli and Indian societies rather than challenge real injustices that happen to Muslims in the Sino-Islamic world.
Unfortunately the twitter clicks and attention don’t come from checking dictatorships but only democracies.
