Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray Slams BJP Over Prophet Muhammad Issue

Maharashtra chief minister and Shivsena chief Uddhav Thackeray has lashed out at his former alliance partner BJP in a rally in Aurangabad. While praising the RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat over his recent statement on Shivling. During the party rally organised at Sambhaji Nagar in Aurangabad, CM Udhav Thackeray said that the country faced an embarrassment due to the remarks of BJP leader on Prophet Muhammad. 

” The Arab and the Middle East countries brought our country to its knees and forced to apologise. What led to this? It is the BJP and its spokespersons that have committed the crime,” said CM Thackeray over the controversial remarks made by Ex-BJP spokesperson Nupur Sharma on Prophet Muhammad. 

“BJP spokesperson’s words have internationally tarnished the image of India. We may have political differences, but Mr. Modi is the prime minister of India. His photo was stuck on garbage bins in some countries, it damaged the image of my country. Why should the country apologize for a political party’s (BJP’s) mistake?,” he further added. 

He even took a dig at the Central govt over the recent targeted killings in Kashmir. “Instead of misusing the central agencies like Enforcement Directorate (ED) and Central Bureau of Investigating (CBI) to harrase the leaders of Maharashtra Vikas Aghadi (MVA) govt, raids should be conducted there in Kashmir. 

Shivsena and BJP used to be alliance partners, but since they’ve parted ways and the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) govt has been formed in Maharashtra, both former alliance partners have been continuously slamming each other on several issues. Even currently, a political tussle is seen between the BJP and the MVA govt due to the Rajya Sabha elections where the BJP has fielded an extra candidate.
