"I look forward to seeing all the members of the PDP-BJP alliance say this as soon as they take their oath tomorrow," Omar wrote on social networking site Twitter.

The National Conference leader was reacting to the remarks by Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis that those who do not chant 'Bharat Mata Ki Jai' have no right to live in the country.

Darul Uloom Deoband, the top seminary for Sunni Muslims in the subcontinent, had recently issued a 'Fatwa' (edict) that Muslims should not chant the slogan as it was against the tenets of Islam.

Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) President Mehbooba Mufti will be sworn in as the first woman Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir tomorrow at Rajbhawan in Jammu. Omar has also been invited for the swearing-in ceremony.
