Bengali actress-turned-politician Nusrat Jahan, on Tuesday, took the oath of office as the Lok Sabha MP in parliament. The newly-elected MP from West Bengal’s Bashirhat constituency had skipped the opening day of the Lok Sabha to get married to one Nikhil Jain.
The TMC MP on Tuesday arrived in the parliament by sporting the traditional sindoor, a sign that she was married. Attired in a traditional saree, she introduced herself as Nusrat Jahan Ruhi Jain and swore in the name of Ishwar. She concluded her oath by chanting Vande Mataram and proceeded straight to Speaker Om Birla to touch his feet.

This soon became a topic of intense social media conversations with right-wing supporters hailing her as the embodiment of a true Indian.
I love to hear Vande matram by a Muslim MP. This is tight slap on face of mullas #nusratjahan
