TMC MP Nusrat Jahan takes oath as MP, chants Vande Mataram

After her marriage, the newly elected TMC MP Nusrat Jahan appeared in the Lok Sabha for the first time on Tuesday. Appearing in a saree and adorned with sindoor, Nusrat took oath as a parliamentarian in Bengali language.

Nusrat Jahan chanted Vande Mataram after taking oath during the ongoing Lok Sabha session.

This comes just a few days after a Samajwadi Party MP Shafiqur Rahman Barq refused to chant the patriotic slogan claiming that it was against Islam. “As far as Vande Mataram is concerned, it is against Islam, we (Muslims) cannot follow it”, said Barq amidst uproar in the lower house.

Nusrat Jahan though steered clear of any such controversy and chanted Vande Mataram at the end of her oath which she took in Bengali.

Jahan recently got married to businessman Nikhil Jain.
