Next, I think you do not understand the difference of "secular" and "national".

If the ******* don't sing the song willit harm? Well, you answer this and you will get the answer. If the Pakistani Christians and Hindus don't sing the Pakistani national anthem and burn the Pakistani national flag, will it harm? After all, it is only a song and the Flag is only a piece of cloth!
You all seem to be obsessed with this Hindu tag. Jana, this country has people beyond the Hindu tag. I also object that citizens of my country does not want to identify with my country and yet want to reap the benefits that my country gives to all citizens.
I sure would not like to be a namak haram
nor allow anyone to be namak harams
And Namak Haram
is an Urdu word!
I am sure you will understand the gravity of the sentiments underlining these two words!
