Recitation of Vande Mataram against Islam”

Muslim leaders and clerics reacted sharply to a reported decision by the Centre asking all schools to make their students recite the first two stanzas of Vande Mataram as part of the centenary celebrations of the National Song on September 7.
“Reciting Vande Mataram is against the tenets of the shariat (islamic law),” Zafaryab Jilani, a member of the All India Muslim Personal Law Board(AIMPLB), said.

I mean.. WTF?

You live in India! Nation comes first, then your religion!
