Shiv Sena slams BJP over Hanuman Chalisa controversy

‘Saamana’ said, ‘Hindutva is doing well in Maharashtra as it is being led by Uddhav Thackeray.

Mumbai: In the wake of the political controversy over the recitation of Hanuman Chalisa in Maharashtra, the Shiv Sena on Monday hit out at the BJP and said the ideology of Hindutva is a culture, not anarchy.

An editorial in Shiv Sena mouthpiece ‘Saamana’ claimed that the BJP’s “rotten mind” was reciting Hanuman Chalisa outside ‘Matoshree’, the private residence of independent MP Navneet Rana and her MLA husband Ravi Rana, the private residence of Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray. was behind the earlier call for, resulting in anger. Shiv Sainiks protested outside the couple’s house here on Saturday.

The Marathi daily alleged that the Rana couple wanted to spoil the atmosphere in the city, and said they should conduct the event in the office lobby of Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah.

“Hindutva is doing well in Maharashtra as it is being led by Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray. There is no restriction on the recitation of Hanuman Chalisa in the state, but why was there insistence on reading it outside Matoshree?” the editorial asked.

It said, “The anarchy resorted to by the BJP cannot be supported. Hindutva is a culture, not anarchy.”

The Rana couple was arrested by the Mumbai Police on Saturday. He was sent to judicial custody on Sunday for challenging the government machinery and making remarks against Thackeray and the police registered a case of sedition.

The Shiv Sena alleged that Navneet Rana had presented a fake caste certificate while contesting the Lok Sabha elections from Amravati, a reserved constituency.

“Hanuman’s followers” truthful (The one who walks on the path of truth) Ram. Naveen Rana, whose base itself is based on lies, is playing politics over the text of Hanuman Chalisa and the entire BJP plays in the gallery,” the editorial claimed.

If BJP wants to recite Hanuman Chalisa sitting on the shoulders of such a fake person then it is an insult to Lord Ram and Hanuman.

Navneet Rana had won the 2019 election with the help of “secular” parties like Congress and NCP, but has now entered the BJP camp, the Shiv Sena further claimed.

Taking a dig at the Centre, the Marathi publication said that a proposal is floating to speak anything bad about the Thackeray government and get the protection of the central forces.

Notably, Navneet Rana was recently provided a centrally armed VIP security cover by the central government.
