Palestine: When Owaisi brings up Palestine in the Lok Sabha

Palestine: AIMIM head and Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi declared that there was nothing wrong with chanting “Jai Palestine” in Parliament and that it was not against any norm or article of the Constitution, in response to concerns from the BJP.

I uttered ” Jai Bheem, Jai Meem, Jai Telangana, Jai Filisteen (Palestine)”. Which constitutional provision does it violate? Owaisi told reporters outside the Lok Sabha that it is their (the BJP MPs’) responsibility to oppose.

Owaisi claimed that Palestinians were an “oppressed people” in response to a question about the meaning of the slogan. He said, “Read what Mahatma Gandhi had to say about Palestine.”

In the Lok Sabha, when Asaduddin Owaisi was called to take his oath, members from the Treasury benches started chanting “Jai Shri Ram.” Owaisi, a prominent Muslim leader and Member of Parliament, continued with his oath despite the chants. Afterward, he addressed the incident outside the Lok Sabha, saying, “You all know what they were saying.” This remark highlighted the ongoing religious and political tensions within the parliamentary proceedings.

While the chair, Radha Mohan Singh, and the pro-tem Speaker, Bhatruhari Mahtab, stated that only the oath would be recorded, complaints were made to Parliamentary Affairs Minister Kiren Rijiju. Rijiju addressed the issue, saying, “We do not have any enmity with Palestine… The only concern is whether it is appropriate for any member to raise a slogan praising another country while taking the oath. We will need to check the rules,” PTI quoted Rijiju as saying.
