Are you upset that some "clerics" have issued a "fatwa" against Muslim kids singing Vande Mataram in school? So am I. Because to me, telling people not to sing a song is about as infantile as insisting, as some others do, that people must sing it.
But if those kids don't sing the song, even Vande Mataram, are they automatically suspect Indians?
Turn the question around. Take HKL Bhagat, the Congress politician named in various reports as having directed massacres of Indians in Delhi in 1984. He's dead now, of course. But suppose every time someone confronted him with his crimes, he broke into a heartfelt rendition of Vande Mataram. Would you hail him as a patriotic Indian, instead of whatever he was?
Now there are reasons Muslims have had problems with Vande Mataram, including the content of the book it first appeared in. But those reasons don't interest me much, nor are they particularly relevant here. What is relevant is the reduction of as complex a thing as citizenship, or loyalty to a country, to the singing of a song, even Vande Mataram.
After all, why do you fill out a long and detailed form when you want a passport? Why do you supply photographs? Why do you offer some proof of your residence, and submit to a police check?
Why can't you get a passport by simply singing Vande Mataram at the nearest passport office?
There's more to being a citizen of this country than simply singing a song, even Vande Mataram. Think about it.
