New Delhi: Congress on Tuesday demanded that legal action be initiated over the reported cries of "Pakistan Zindabad" at World Culture Festival here in the presence of several union Ministers.

Congress spokesman Pramod Tewari said legal action should be taken over the issue as was done in the case of JNU.

 

He claimed the party has audio-video footage which show cries of 'Pakistan Zindabad' at the event, organised by the Art of Living Foundation.

Reacting to AIMIM leader Asaduddin Owaisi's remarks that he would not chant 'Bharat Mata ki Jai', Tewari took a dig at him and said he was seeking to help BJP play politics of communal polarisation.

"What is wrong in hailing the motherland? Khan Abdual Gaffar Khan had hailed it as also Maulana Azad," he said.
