The news of this decision by the High Court spread like wildfire, with many news channels hosting live debate and discussion programs on the issue. Aaj Tak, which also held a similar program, had the national spokesperson for BJP, Sambit Patra and the president of the Ulema Council Maulana Nadeemuddin on their show.
While presenting his views, Maulana Nadeemuddin went to the extent of rebuking the Hindus for not being able to shift their festival to a different date. This angered the BJP spokesperson a great deal, who asked the Maulana to take his words back. Yet, the Maulana went on. Sambit Patra then asked the Maulana if the Muslims can postpone any of their occasions to a later date, just as he had asked of the Hindu community. Now, this sentence enraged the Maulana so much that he went to the extent of trying to grab Patra by his collar.
