Look who’s talking!

Bal Thackeray has said that Anna Hazare’s fast and rally for the amendment of the Jan Lokpal Bill was like a five-star event. There are thousand examples which can prove Hazare’s merit and Thackeray’s demerits for the society.

But for the time being, just have a look at the following points: –

– Majority of the supporters in Shiv Sena rallies regularly and openly mouth words of hatred. Hazare’s supporters, although indulge in anti-government slogans, are peaceful in their attitude. Family crowd and people from all ages are seen only in Hazare’s rallies.

– Violent speeches and insulting or even abusing words are a regular feature in Shiv Sena’s rally while Hazare never ever endorses such behavior, forget himself indulging in it.

– Hazare’s supporters have always protested in a non-violent manner. Till date, not a single incidence of violence is reported anywhere. On the other hand, Shiv Sena’s violent means of protests are known far and wide. From hundreds of such examples, the one I recall the most is when they set a bus on fire at Shivaji Park in 2006 because few nuisance mongers insulted the statue of Meenatai Thackeray. How justifiable is this?

– Hazare’s non-violent means of protest gave rise to the biggest national movement in India after independence. Has Shiv Sena’s violent methods ever succeeded in achieving this?

– Shiv Sena has never spoken about India as a whole. Their Hindutva card clearly suggests their communal attitude. Their anti-Muslim and anti-Christian speeches are well-known. However, Hazare’s movement has never been pro or anti towards any religion, caste or language. Due to this reason, the whole of ‘India’ participated in the movement. Such national support is a dream for Shiv Sena.

Due to the above mentioned points, I personally feel that Thackeray’s criticism for Hazare and his movement is the worst joke of the millennium!

    0 marks for this distinguish between. Say whatever you want. You cannot compare Anna with Bal thackrey. And your Anna also knows not to dare to comment further on this issue coz he is well aware he may be so called Gandhivadi but shiv sainiks are not and what is wrong in Thackreys comment it was indeed a five star fast. The world has seen it.
