"Why was Trivedi arrested and cases filed against him? Those who committed treason are free and one who just drew a cartoon was jailed," Raj told reporters here this evening.
"Afzal Guru and Kasab have not been hanged yet. Is this not a mockery?" Raj said.
Defending Trivedi, Raj, himself an able cartoonist, said, "What wrong has he done? He was merely commenting on corrupt politicians.
"What is wrong in expressing anger through cartoons? One should understand the motive behind the cartoons," he said.
"When I saw those cartoons, I thought what was wrong with them. I don't think there is anything wrong with his cartoons."
The MNS chief reiterated that Home Minister R R Patil was incapable of handling his ministry. "R R Patil doesn't understand the home department. How can he be expected to understand cartoons," he said.
Raj recalled that his uncle, Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray, had given him his first lessons in the art of cartoon-drawing.
Trivedi was arrested on Saturday for cartoons which depict the national emblem and the Parliament in allegedly objectionable manner.
Earlier this evening, Bombay High Court granted him bail, in response to a PIL.
And ask him the same question and also ask that question from Maharashtra Govt. Please tell us why have you not been booked for preaching hatred against Biharis.Now you have gall to say this. You are biggest bigot and thug.Before you ask this question , search your conscience. But then again , do you have a conscience?
If Government is Offender then Aseem also but if government is not then why Aseem. Firstly Government is culprit, if he save Kasab and Afjal unnecessary. When S.C. confirms to hang kasab 2 times then why government is treated as his son in law. and this is nothing what aseem did. Even now situation demands more like a "KrantiKari Changes" still Government have time they can do something to free their guilt otherwise, It will very difficult to control the country situation.
raj thackeray does have a point. he makes sense this time
