"I won't allow them to play here. I have not reneged on my words and won't do so," Thackeray said, in the second part of a marathon interview published in the party mouthpiece "Saamana".
The Sena patriarch also claimed that if he was given charge of the military, he would perform a miracle and set things right in the country within a month.
The Azad Maidan violence on August 11, protest opposing the alleged attacks on Muslims in Myanmar and the riots in Assam, was "pre-planned," Thackeray said.
Muslims had started riots in Mumbai after the Babri masjid demolition. Even the Godhra carnage was pre-planned, he commented.
Shiv Sena and the Raj Thackeray-led Maharashtra Navnirman Sena condemned the Azad Maidan violence, Thackeray said, but "Where were the people who paralysed Parliament," he asked.
Thackeray also warned that he would not "spare" Muslim fundamentalists who fomented trouble in the country.
"I will not allow a single fanatic Pakistani and Bangladeshi Muslim to live in Maharashtra and right up to Jammu and Kashmir where we have branches," the 86- ear-old leader said.
The danger is that India has tolerated hate speech and for vein nationalists and rabid islamophobes it natural to demonize before destroying a people! Mr Thackefay should be encouraged to make peace for the time of final reckoning comes for all and when we meet our maker our souls are bared in their nakedness! I believe that dialogue and not diatribe is the solution to interfaith relationships!
I regret Mr Thackeray's frequent spewing of bile against Muslims! I SA we have laws against hate speech and our united non partisan civic society of the sensible do not hesitate to charge and bring hatemongers to book!
This is typical of Shree Thakery. Making jingoistic statments to get cheers from the crowd. Thank god we do not have a military rule in India, look at Pakistan the country is in a mess! Military rule or green brigade and saffron brigade will naver bring prosperity and peace to the nation. Learn to live together and create prosperity for all. Thank god majority of Indians do understand this. Don't fall for Mr. T's rhetoric.
The entire Thackrey clan should be either in Tihar or mental asylum. Except for raking crores for themselves, they have not contributed anything either to Maharashtra or India. Now a brainless brat Aditya is coming forward to safeguard their loot. Throughout their lieft, they know nothing but violence.
Mr.Bal Thackeray if there is a Military Rule in India, you will not be in a position to open your mouth. Instead of passing nonsense comments, you and your party should do something good to Maharashtra. The cricket with Pakistan is on. You cannot do anything.
This is what happens when you cross 70 . Its called ' sathya jaana ' in Hindi . anyways Bal T first set the BMC right which is being ruled by the creeps of your own party . They have made a complete mess of Mumbai while you and your third grade son are minting money out of fooling the poor ' Marathi Manoos " The great Indian Army is a very professional force and they dont need a cartoonist to manage them .
I completely agree with you. For jr thakareys, i would only say that chutiye maar gaye aulad chhod gaye.
Stupid statements from Bal Thackrey - a man who cannot set right his family wants to set right the nation.; What a joke ? Let him first explain from where he has got his ill-gotten wealth and whether the real fight between Uddav and Raj is for power or past loot-sharing ?
I agree with Balasaheb, we need another 100 yrs of your life with us for Mumbai. Long live Balasaheb!
Are we finding another Hitler within us? The Army is purely to protect the Country from outside aggression and not to kill the entire within us who are raising the Army; taking the entire burden of it by the Common General Public to protect us and not to allow oneself one to earn a easy life to oneself without any opposition available to raise a challenge or objection.Since entire Universe is available within oneself;be good to yourself with enough of LOVE towards the Soul;the entire objects shall automatically fall into its respective places and not LOVE the body which is not you; as your good self is considering now;absorbing much of ignorance from nowhere.With such thinking acquired by us, how one can LOVE the Country other than the oneself only?
I am a Mumbai born and brought up person ,and like me any one who is Mumbai will agree that it is because of the Sena that Mumbai has not become Kate** domain till now we must appreciate the Sena for that
Thackert's are Bihari's. This has been told by Mr Bal Thackery's father. How can they talk of Marathi manus.A sheep cannot become a lion by just wearing lions skin. Raj thackery tuu fauj maangta hai. Tere pass salary dene ko paisa hai kya. Bheekh maang kar apni garhi chalaa raha hai tuu. Fauj teri kab sunegi. Jaa vapis Bihar chalaa jaa.
Thackrey is a CKP name.. CKPs and Koli(Fishermen) were the real locals of Mumbai...
give charge of army I wil hang the thakre gang at the street corner
With vision to look at graveyard why do you speak and write nonsense Balasahab
Bunder Talwar maang raha hai aur sochta hai ki woh sab thik kar dega lekin usko yeh nahin malum hai ki woh bunder hai aur uski akal bunder jitni hi hai. Is liye usse talwar nahin mil sakti.
Give a gun to a mad man and what will he do!! Thank God that this man never got the opportunity to become the Prime Minister of the country. Not only is he power crazy but is racist and self centred. He needs to be put in a Lunatic Assylum with a straight jacket and chains on his feet. Given a chance and he would shoot everyone that is around him but he would never shoot himself and do the nation some good. Surely his name will be mentioned among the greats, Hitler!!
As the saying goes like the childhood comes twice in your life time. Once when u r a kid and secondly when u reach the age of this stupid Buddha. He can'nt even stand straight and needs the support of his son and chamchaas, silly he talks of straighting the nation... Soooo funny.. Indian Express thankx for making me laugh in the early hours... it would be a good day ;-) OH yeah he tries to walk with the support of his mouth piece Samna as this paper gets piled up for not being sold and atleast it supports him to make a hard roll out of it and enable him to support in standing straight...lol...
86 ears for Mr. Bal Thackeray - TOI Please be more careful
No leader worth the salt ever seeks power.He takes it .That is leaderhip.If it has to be given on a plater there are many to take . Show your leadership in action not by demand .
Bal Thakre is right. We have not tested the dictator as yet. Why not to give one chance to Bal Thakre. He is not just a clown what he often is mocked by the media and intellectuals but a seasoned strategist and crude politician. He is one of the best organizers and administrators. He carries a substantial both nonsense and nuisance value which is required for efficient functioning of crippled democracy in India. Yes. He is right . He should be given the charge of the Indian Defense forces. No effective defense minister or the defense chief. Bal Thakre can be the answer at least for one tenure. If NDA is voted to power, Bal thakre should be given charge of the Military. Why not to try him under Narendra Modi as a PM.
ARE YOU CRAZY, YUVAK. THIS GUY IS A LUNATIC, HE IS FROM BIHAR BUT DOES NOT BIHARIS. HE IS A DIVIDER , HE WILL DIVIDE THE ARMED FORCES TOO. LET HIM CROW.
Give me charge of one police station where he lives, I will straighten him out in 5 minutes.
The police station is situated in one of the rooms in his house ! The house is named 'MATOSHREE' but is popularly known as 'ROGUES GALLERY'
THIS GUY IS A NUTS, HE SHOULD BE PUNISHED FOR MAKING OPEN THREAT ABOUT MUSLIMS.
it is fact the bangladeshi muslims are with the connivance of pakistan n& china are creating indiscipline & violence in india which may lead to another bangladesh if not checked.govt of india & assam govt are responsible to maintain the vote banks. giving milk to poisonous snake. proper investigation to be conducted to drive them in intelligent manner. our army & intelligence should be strengthened we should keep faith in our army but not with politicians
He has entertainment value otherwise I can't understand why does media give him space. He is totally out of mind and his mouth is a sewage pipe; throws out filth when it opens.
YOU ARE SO RIGHT ABOUT HIS MOUTH, ALWAYS TRASH COMING OUT OF IT.
If Balthackary can stop terrorism and bangladeshi infiltration through Army , then it is very well and good. Billions of rupees have been invested in Army but they have been kept idle as white elephants. Army camp should be set up in Indo- Bnagla * indo pak borders and given them free hand to stop infiltrations and terrorism. Congiss party would never do as pakisthani and banglaheshi are their core vote banks.
What will happen to these messengers of hate when they go back to God, the father of all mankind? Have they forgotten the Hindu philosophy of " sarv dharam sambhava."?
It is an open challenge and threaten to the Army and the Army heads and the Nation. It is provocative to the Indian Army. Expect, the Defence Minister Should act immediately to save the country from such enemies
Give a razor to a monkey ! He is desperate to snatch one. Wisdom has its limits but ignorance suffers no such handicap. Thackerys are jumping through all the hoops and doing all the monkey tricks on behalf of RSS to take the Saffron Brigade to Red Fort. Irony is, they can't win majority in their own state, how come he talks of taking charge of country's armed forces. He seems to lost his bearing as Digvijay has brought the family skeleton out of the Thackrey's cuboid. Fierce competition is going on among Saffron Brigade - How to win friends and influence the radical mind, either hook or by crook. How long the central government would show the lack of courage before the onslaught of these fanatics ? Long rope has already been given to Thackrey Clan to keep the Marathi Manoos in Congress pocket. Now, the time is up. Either take action against them or declare that we can't. Then it would be easier for the minority to understand where you stand.
