In a recent viral clip, at a debate on Zee Salaam, BJP's spokesperson Navin Kumar Singh was challenged to sing Vande Mataram to prove his patriotism by All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) member Mufti Ejaz Arshad Qasmi.

In the video, Singh, who appears unfamiliar with the lyrics of the song, is seen mangling the words while apparently reading the song off his mobile phone.

This is what Singh ends up singing.

(Note: It was hard to decipher his words!)

Vande Mataram
Sujalam Sufalam
Malayaja Sheetalam
Sansayaam
Malyaam
Subhrat Jotsam
Pulkityaam
Vande Mataram
Pulkistan
Sumita
Dumal Tsunami (?)
Suhasin
Sumantra Bulshumaani
Vande Mataram





We hear words such as "Tsunami", "Bulshumaani", "Suhasin" during Singh's fumbled recital of the National Song. However, the word "Pulkistan" has seemed to have caught the eye of social media and has become an overnight viral meme on the microblogging site Twitter. So much so that, the netizens went ahead and built a new nation.

Here are some of the submissions by Twitterati:






























































"Pulkistan" trended on the site yesterday.







And people have already started moving to Pulkistan.





However, this isn't the first time a BJP member has struggled to recite the National Song during the "prove your nationalism - Vande Mataram debate." During a Newsroom debate with India Today, anchor Rahul Kanwal stopped the debate midway and asked the UP Minister of State for Minority Welfare, Baldev Singh Aulakh several times to sing four lines of the song. Aulakh somehow makes up one reason after another and deflects from the question.
