Sidemenu is not showing on redirecting to default route... Help

When i am redirecting from another view to home view the sidemenu is hiding and transition is reloading
I have routing as

  .state('app', {
    url: "/app",
    abstract: true,
    templateUrl: "templates/menu.html",
    controller: 'AppCtrl'
  .state('app.home', {
      url: "/home",
      views: {
          'menuContent': {
              templateUrl: "templates/home.html",

.state('app.browse', {
    url: "/browse",
    views: {
      'menuContent': {
        templateUrl: "templates/browse.html"


i have a footer in which there is an achor for home redirect as,

<a class="tab-item" href="#/app/home">
                <i class="icon ion-home"></i>

The issue which i am facing is as if i’m inside browse view and press the home button, it will change the transition state and side menu is not visible…

How do i redirect back to my default view which is home without loosing sidemenu.
