The Shiv Sena has owned up to the assault on the Chairman (Mumbai) of the Observer Research Foundation, Sudheendra Kulkarni on Monday, calling him a Pakistani agent. The party has further claimed that it will not compromise when it comes to the issue of Pakistani’s being allowed to hold functions in the state.

“If Kulkarni says that the Shiv Sena has done it then we have done it. Who else in the state has the courage to do these things. Kulkarni should also check if there was ink flung on his face or whether his was face was blackened by tar,” Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut said.


Raut claimed that the party had warned Kulkarni that there would be no compromise on the issue of Pakistan and alleged that Kulkarni was a Pakistani agent. “Uddhav saheb had firmly told Kulkarni when they met yesterday that the party will not compromise on Pakistan,” Raut added. He further said that all those who espoused the cause of Pakistan’s needed to be beaten up.

“These are agents of Pakistan. They should be kicked on their butt,” Raut added. He also questioned the reason for inviting Pakistani politicians to the city. “Why do these Pakistani agents feel that the people they are calling are peace doves. They are all vultures. They are wolves who are killing our people. They cant see the violence that has been unleashed against our people. However their blood boils when their faces are blackened,” Raut said.

Maharashtra Chief Minister, Devendra Fadnvais had claimed that all necessary protection would be provided to the function. Raut however claimed that the BJPs statement was because of the consideration that it was governing a state.

“This is power that is speaking. The feelings of the people of the BJP are a lot different. Our relationship with the BJP is strong and the government is sturdy however our perception on the issue of Pakistan is different. The Sena’s stand against Pakistan is firm,” Raut added.
