JAMMU: Seeking action against AIMIM leader Asaduddin Owaisi for refusing to chant 'Bharat Mata ki Jai', RSS today said those who do not consider India as their 'motherland' should leave the country.

"He (Owaisi) is making such unwarranted statements. If somebody does not consider our country as motherland, he is most welcome to go away from this country and go wherever he likes," Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh's (RSS) Prant Sang Chalak, Jammu and Kashmir, Brig Suchet Singh said here.

RSS's reaction comes in the wake of Owaisi's recent remarks that he won't chant 'Bharat Mata ki Jai' even if a knife was put to his throat.

Singh said it was "unfortunate" that such people were elected to Parliament.

Asked whether RSS wanted action against Owaisi, he said action must be taken and people are there to think about this.

"In fact, we can only suggest that anti-national activities by anti-national people must be identified and stern action taken against them," he added.
