Uddhav Thackeray, the executive president of Shiv Sena and arch rival of MNS supremo, Raj Thackeray, was admitted to Lilavati Hospital after complains of chest pain and was discharged today. Raj had visited Uddhav in hospital twice and while returning home accompanied him as well. Raj,once part of Shiv Sena, formed his own party MNS in 2006, due to continued misunderstandings with Uddhav and some other party members supporting Uddhav. In the recent past, times have bought split hearts together and today was one more day to witness the same!
While addressing the Youth(Yuva) Sena , a wing of Shiva Sena, on the eve of the first anniversary of the wing, Bal Thakrey, the Sena supremo, via video-conference, praised people attacking Prashant Bhushan as he concluded that Bhushan was promoting divison of the country by stating that security forces should be withdrawn from Jammu and Kashmir and a referendum be held to elicit the opinion of the people and they be convinced rather be forced to be part of India. He was supported by son Uddhav Thackeray. The Sena Supremo also claimed he would rather address the country as Hindustan than India, a name given by British.
Well, all these sound so patriotic and shows the strict discipline and principles, the Sena, abides by. This also justifies, why they have been tarring faces of bar-girls , tearing explicit Bollywood postures and threatening couples , on valentine’s day !
Quite ironically , the same celebration, organised by Uddhav Thackeray’s son, Aditya (leading Yuva Sena) and attended by father Uddhav Thackeray and Manohar Joshi, experienced dance by performers, on Bollywood popular track -Sheila Ki Jawaani and many other Marathi ” peppy-tracks like Jalebi…”.
Reported later was , Aditya was scolded by the Supremo for allowing Yuva cadres to enjoy, whistle and dance on “Sheila Ki Jawaani” and other tracks , infront of the Media , which was also invited .
Is that, the principles do not apply at home ?
Is patriotism for India, only expressed if someone sounds Anti-Pakistan and prefers addressing the country as Hindustan and not India ?
Are we termed patriots, only if we do not celebrate and promote Valentine’s Day , which is termed “Western Culture ” by the Sena ?
Are the people supporting removal of Security Forces and promotion of talks with Kashmiri citizens, to eliminate the misunderstandings, they have, against India , wrong ?
