Uttar Pradesh: AIMIM leader Asaduddin Owaisi refused to take bath on Monday and also announced at a public rally that he will never take bath again as it is not written in constitution.
His comments came against the backdrop of RSS Chief Mohan Bhagwat’s suggestion that the new generation – especially Engineering students, need to be taught to take bath every day.
Taking on RSS chief, Owaisi said there is nothing in the Indian Constitution which forces him to take bath.
“I follow the constitution of this country and it does not force me to take bath. They (RSS) are trying to force their ideology and I’m ready to debate on this,” he said.
“I won’t take bath even if you put a knife to my throat. Nowhere in the Constitution, is it written that one should take bath,” he added.
Owaisi’s comments gained unconditional support from almost all Student organisations. Engineering students showered praises on twitter.
“Finally, we found a leader who understands us,” tweeted an Engineering student from Hyderabad.
“Why should we take bath if we are living our lives completely on Facebook and Whatsapp,” questioned another student from Delhi on twitter
“We want Azadi from taking bath,” tweeted Kanhaiya Kumar from JNU.
Meanwhile, Bajrangdal and ABVP are planning to pick up students from cinema theaters and amusement parks and force them to take bath by pouring 5 buckets of water on their heads.
