Let’s roll out the red carpet for Pak terrorists as well: Saamana

Relying on an intelligence report that has hinted at the possibility of three Pakistani terrorists sneaking into the country, Sena said they too should be treated as state guests.

The Shiv Sena Thursday continued to take potshots at Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis and the BJP over their stand on Pakistanis being allowed to conduct events in Mumbai.

Relying on an intelligence report that has hinted at the possibility of three Pakistani terrorists sneaking into the country, Sena said they too should be treated as state guests. “Since every person who arrives here from Pakistan is ‘a messenger of peace’, these three terrorists must also be treated similarly. We lay out the red carpet for them and accord them highest security,” an editorial in Sena mouthpiece Saamana said.

It stated that in case any one them happened to be a “human bomb” and explodes taking hundreds of innocent lives, nobody should term it as an attempt to spoil cultural and political ties between the two countries.

“In the past, such hullaballoo has brought a bad name not only to Maharashtra but entire India… We should adopt ‘a spirit of sacrifice and tolerance’ towards these three terrorists and welcome their attacks with a smile,” the editorial, full of utmost sarcasm, said.

The relations between the two allies, the BJP and the Shiv Sena, has taken a turn for the worse after Sena activists smeared with ink the face of Sudheendra Kulkarni, a former BJP strategist and organiser of Pakistan’s former foreign minister Mahmud Kasuri’s book launch event on Monday.

The Sena has, however, decided to keep the issue on the boil without offending its larger ally in a big way. The party confirmed that it was not going to call off the alliance.

The Sena had earlier this week claimed that Fadanvis’s statement in defence of the former Pakistani Foreign Minister’s book launch was pro-Pakistani. It has also taunted the BJP asking them to end the alliance.

Business ‘as usual’ with Sena, says BJP

New Delhi: It is business “as usual” with alliance partner Shiv Sena, the BJP asserted on Thursday but emphasised that “freedom of expression in our country is in the root of democracy”.

Environment minister Prakash Javadekar used the term “as usual” to describe his party’s current equation with the Shiv Sena. He also dismissed outright Sena’s barb aimed at Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, where the alliance partner taunted him for not understanding Maharashtra.

“People of Maharashtra do not think so,” said Javadekar. ENS

            Very nice. For once, the Sena is right, but the BJP may not have many options at the centre because of diplomatic reasons. However, BJP needs to realize that stan is a terrorist country, so any of their govt officials, current or past, must be termed terrorists and dealt with as such. Actors and musicians can be treated differently of course, they do not run the terror shop that is stan.
