Me Marathi, You Indian!
Samajwadi Party’s (SP) MLA, Abu Azmi Mr Azmi must be congratulated for maintaining the honour of the national language by taking oath in Hindi. As Azmi has respected the national language entire nation will and must honour him for taking oath in Hindi. Unfortunately this is an attack on the national language and it is high time for the Congress and the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) to realize that they were squarely responsible for giving birth to trouble maker elements like MNS, and now the time has come to act tough. In times of appalling terrorism, the political violence for vote-bank politics, is extremely despicable that we have to deal with insane anti-social elements like the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) and its founder chief Raj Thackeray. The ‘new’ Sena is an indisputable threat to the integrity of the Union of India with its unconstitutional, undemocratic approach to the promotion of its ideology, which for all intents and purposes, is absolute rubbish. The inaction of the Congress-NCP government has already helped the MNS gain decent political mileage and the cause of the Marathi manoos will only pick up pace unless more rigorous steps are taken – the first being, a complete Centre-enforced ban on the MNS and its activists. The issuance of a gag order on Thackeray was also needed, as is some stringent regulation of the media reporting on him and his malevolent politics. With his devilish charm and wicked intent, such a man can only cause more havoc with his baseless speeches and grandiose misdirection of the Marathi youth. It’s best if he is isolated in terms of his reach within the mainstream media. The MNS are a bunch of hoodlums, whatever you say. They have little concern or respect for the concept of a sovereign
