Bhajan is also sung by I-taukei and Muslims, there is nothing wrong with it.
This was highlighted by FijiFirst General Secretary Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum following Fiji Labour Party Leader Mahendra Chaudhry’s statement.
Chaudhry claims that Sayed-Khaiyum questioned the calibre of the FLP candidate referring to their candidate as a “bhajaniya” and asked whether he would be able to contribute to debates and discussions.
However, Sayed-Khaiyum says he was only talking about the caliber of the candidates as they need to be able to contribute to debates and discussions.
Chaudhry claims that Sayed-Khaiyum has insulted the entire Hindu community by referring scathingly to FLP candidate’s leisure activity of singing bhajans.
Sayed-Khaiyum says FijiFirst does not engage in divisive politics.
