Bihar's newly elected AIMIM MLA's oath sparks row, refuses to say 'Hindustan'

Bharat Vs Hindustan Row: The newly elected AIMIM member of the Bihar Legislative Assembly Akhtarul Iman has sparked a massive controversy. The AIMIM has asked the Protem Speaker Jitan Ram Maanjhi whether the word Hindustan in the text of taking the oath in Urdu could be replaced by Bharat which is otherwise mentioned in the preamble to the country's constitution.

Akhtarul Iman stated that "There is no conflict. People are turning it into a controversy because they could not find any spicy news today. I asked the chair what should I use as few of the copies had Bharat and few had Hindustan."
