Pranam. Shiv Sena supremo Balasaheb Keshav Thackeray passes away.

Posted by hinduexistence on November 17, 2012

Hindu Legend, King of Million of Hindu Hearts,  Shiv Sena supremo Bal Thackeray passes away.

Express news service : Mumbai, Sat Nov 17 2012 ::  Bal Thackeray (86), founder of the Shiv Sena passed away at his residence Matoshree in suburban Bandra on Saturday. After his demise, son Uddhav has been taken ill. Close family members including nephew Raj Thackeray and his wife were by his side.

“He had suffered a cardiac arrest. We could not revive him despite our best efforts. He breathed his last at around 3:30 pm,” Dr Jalil Parkar, who treated the Sena supremo, said.

Bal Thackeray had been critically ill for the last few days and the condition of the 86-year-old Sena patriarch worsened on Wednesday night when he had to be put on life support. He was taken off life support later after showing signs of improvement.

Bal Thackeray had been suffering from lung and pancreatic ailments and had been under the supervision of doctors for the past two weeks. He was admitted to hospital for a week in July following fever, stomach pain and problems.

He is survived by two sons Uddhav and Jaidev and their families. While Uddhav who now runs the Sena, lived with Bal Thackeray, Jaidev moved out several years ago and the father-son shared strained ties. Thackeray’s another son Bindumadhav died in an …………………………………………………………………………………………………………………accident 15 years ago. His family also lives in Mumbai.

A rabble rouser, who started out as a cartoonist alongside R K Laxman in the Free Press Journal in the 1950s, founded the Shiv Sena in 1966 on the plank of job security for the Marathi manoos (sons of the soil) which translated into attacks on South Indians whom he had blamed for taking away the opportunities from the locals.

Referred by many as the uncrowned King of Mumbai, Thackeray made space for himself in Maharashtra’s political arena by addressing the concerns of Maharashtrians who increasingly felt marginalized and deprived in the fast developing metropolis of Mumbai.

In the five decades of the Sena’s existence, Thackeray formed an alliance with almost all political parties including the Congress, Socialist and even the Muslim League at various points of time to further his own cause.

Thackeray, however, had an anathema of adorning any constitutional posts and was happy in governing through “remote control.” [Full Report]

Mumbai bids tearful farewell to Bal Thackeray

Mumbai | 18 Nov. 2012 ::  The mortal remains of Bal Thackeray, a Hindutva mascot and flagbearer of Marathi pride, were consigned to flames as lakhs of mourners joined the Shiv Sena founder’s grieving family to bid him a tearful farewell, with the city observing a virtual shutdown.

In a spontaneous outpouring of grief, a sea of humanity, unprecedented in recent memory, descended on the streets leading from “Matoshree”, Thackeray’s Bandra home, to Shivaji Park, to catch the last glimpse of the uncrowned king of Mumbai.

As several times in life, the Thackeray phenomenon was in evidence once again in death as he brought Mumbai to a halt with all marketplace, from the swanky malls to the tiny tea stalls and ‘paan—beedi’ kiosks, closed and all roads leading to “Matoshree”, Shiv Sena Bhavan in Dadar and Shivaji Park, where his last rites were performed.

Loud roars of “Parat ya parat ya Balasaheb parat ya (Come back, come back, Balasaheb come back), Kon ala re, kon ala Shiv Senecha wagh ala (Who has come, who has come, Shiv Sena’s tiger has come)” and “Balasaheb amar rahe” (long live Balasaheb) rent the air as an emotional Uddhav, the youngest son of the departed leader and Sena’s executive president, lit the pyre.

In a reflection of the respect Thackeray commanded across the board, a galaxy of politicians, from allies to rivals, film stars to captains of industry were attendance. [Full Report].

Life after Bal Thackeray: What will happen to his legacy?

While the death of Bal Thackeray has marked the end of an era that signified fiery oratory, right-wing views, and son of the soil crusades, the question being asked now is: Who will take his legacy ahead and occupy that political space? Sayli Udas and Shailesh Gaikwad report. Thackeray’s demise sends Mumbai into a sea of gloom

    In year 1992 – 93, Kashmiri Jihadis declared they wont allow Amarnath Yatra to continue, and they will kill Hindus. Imotent Delhi Govt could not do anything inspite 13 lakh soldiers at hand.

    Bala Saheb Thakre, readily challenged,” if no Hindu is allowed to do Amarnath Yatra, then I will see how Muslims of Mumbai go for Hajj ”

    And we have Amarnath Yatra till this year. You dont need powers to defeat enemy. You need spirit, courage and bravery.

  4. O Emperor of Hindus ! You will forever remain in our hearts. Nobody has ever spoken so straight-forward and strongly for the Hindu Cause as You have. Bless us from above that we the children of Bharat can continue Your legacy of fighting fiercely for Hinduism and Hindu-Rashtra. And may the Supreme Lord grant You eternal peace. We will miss you.

    The marathi people have lost a strong maratha and hindus have lost a hindu dharma savior. Who will speak for the hindus in bharat after him? But as a true shivsainik i will strive till my last breath for the betterment of bharat and maharashtra. “Saheb tumhala koti koti pranam”.

  6. Urgent Press Release

    छत्रपति शिवाजी महाराज, उनकी अजेय हिन्दू शक्ति और राष्ट्रवाद के प्रबल समर्थक श्री बालासाहब ठाकरे के निधन पर शोक संदेश – अशोक सिंहल

    यों तो यह सृष्टि का अटल नियम है कि हर आने वाले को यहां से जाना ही है; पर कुछ लोग ऐसे होते हैं, जिनके जाने से दिल के किसी कोने में अपूरणीय क्षति हो जाती है। स्व0 श्री बालासाहब ठाकरे का व्यक्तित्व भी ऐसा ही था।
    यह भारत का दुर्भाग्य है कि हिन्दू बहुल होते हुए भी देश की राजनीति में सफलता के लिए मुस्लिम तुष्टीकरण को एक अचूक दवा मान लिया गया है। यद्यपि कांग्रेस ने इस परम्परा को शुरू किया, पर अब तो भारत के अधिकांश दल इसी गलत मार्ग पर चलने में गौरव अनुभव करते हैं। हिन्दुओं की उपेक्षा और मुस्लिमों का चरण चुम्बन ही मानो सेक्यूलरवाद की पहचान बन गयी है।
    ऐसे समय में श्री बालासाहब ठाकरे ने राजनीति के इस दूषित प्रवाह के विरुद्ध आवाज उठाई। इससे मुंबई में जड़ जमाए इस्लामी माफियाओं का वर्चस्व टूट गया और फिर इसका प्रतिफल वहां की राजनीति में भी दिखाई दिया।
    छत्रपति शिवाजी महाराज, उनकी अजेय हिन्दू शक्ति और राष्ट्रवाद के प्रबल समर्थक श्री बालासाहब ठाकरे ने प्रखरता से शिवसेना को एक हिन्दू दल के नाते पहचान दिलाई। यद्यपि इसके कारण उन्हें अन्य दलों का कोपभाजन बनना पड़ा; पर उन्होंने कदम पीछे नहीं हटाये।
    श्री राम मंदिर आंदोलन तथा बाबरी ढांचे के विध्वंस के समय वही एकमात्र ऐसे हिन्दू नेता थे, जिन्होंने साहसपूर्वक इसके लिए देश की हिन्दू जनता और अपने शिवसैनिकों को बधाई दी।
    श्री बालासाहब ठाकरे का विश्व हिन्दू परिषद के विचार और कार्यक्रमों के प्रति सदा समर्थन और सहयोग का भाव रहता था। उनसे मिलने पर हर बार मुझमें नई ऊर्जा का संचार होता था। उनका जाना मेरे लिए बड़े भाई समान अभिभावक का जाना है। अतः उनका निधन मेरे लिए व्यक्तिगत क्षति है।
    बस और क्या कहूं। परम पिता परमेश्वर से विनम्र प्रार्थना है कि वे दिवंगत आत्मा को अपने श्रीचरणों में स्थान दें तथा उनके सभी परिजनों व समर्थकों को इस असीम कष्ट को सहने की शक्ति दें।
    ॐ शांति, शांति, शांति।।
    शोकाकुल – अशोक सिंहल संरक्षक विश्व हिन्दू परिषद
    It is the irreversible law of this mortal world that everyone who comes here has to go, but there are some such people whose passing on leaves a feeling of irreparable loss in a corner of the heart. Late Sri Balasaheb Thackeray was very much such a personality.
    It is the misfortune of Bharat that even if it a Hindu majority country, Muslim appeasement has been accepted as a magic potion for success in the politics of the country. Though the Congress Party started and institutionalized this ‘policy of appeasement’, but now most of the parties of Bharat feel proud of walking this path. Taking no notice of Hindus and licking the feet of Muslims appear to have become synonymous with ‘secularism’.
    Under such circumstances Sri Balasaheb Thackeray raised his voice against this polluted discourse and approach of politics. By this the command and control network of the Islamic mafia sitting put in Mumbai with their roots deep was broken and its domino effect was reflected in the politics of the financial capital of Bharat.
    Sri Balasaheb Thackeray – a connoisseur and strong supporter of the tradition and heritage of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, his formidable Hindu power and nationalism – spined an identity for Shiv Sena as a Hindu party! Though he earned the ire of other parties for this but he did not retract his steps.
    At the time of Sri Ram Temple movement and demolition of the Babri structure he was the only Hindu leader who with courage congratulated the people of the country and the Shiv Sainiks for this.
    Sri Balasaheb Thackeray always held a supportive and cooperative outlook for the aims, objects and programmes of Vishva Hindu Parishad. Every time a meeting with him charged me with new energy. To me his passing on is like the passing on of an elder-brotherly guardian. His Nidhan therefore is a personal loss to me.
    What more can I say! I pray to Parampita Paramatma to give the departed noble soul a pride of place at His Lotus Feet and give his bereaved family and supporters the strength to bear this irreparable loss.
    Om Shantih Shantih Shantih!
    In grief,
    ASHOK SINGHAL

    Heartfelt Tribute to ‘Hindu Hruday Samraat’
    Maananeey Shri Balasaheb Thakrey
    By Dr Pravin Togadia

    New Delhi, November 17, 2012
    “Maa. Balasaheb Thakrey has been our inspiration & strength while taking up various Hindu causes. With his departure from this world, a fatherly support is gone for all Hindus.” – Said Dr Pravin Togadia, VHP International Working President while paying tribute to Shivsena Supreemo Shri Balasaheb Thakrey.
    Dr Togadia further recalled, “When Babri fell in 1992, there was a competition of shrugging of the responsibility & condemning the demolition. Maa. Balasaheb Thakrey came down heavily on all those who condemned the demolition of Babri & stood up strongly at a great height as a real Hindu leader saying, ‘Yes! I did it! Yes, Shivsainiks did it & I am proud of them.’ In the riots that ensued aftermath the 1993 serial blasts in Mumbai, Shiv Sena under the strong leadership of Maa Balasaheb Thakrey ji, protected Hindus all over in Mumbai & reigned in the jehadi elements.”
    Dr Togadia expressed, “Maa Balasaheb ji was the real Hindu Hruday Samraat, who never compromised on any Hindu issue for the power or any allurement. His vision for Hindus, Bharat & Hindu Rashtra was clear. He stood with all of us who chose the difficult path of the similar vision in the atmosphere polluted by power mongers & vote greedy Muslim appeasement. In the issue of Muslim reservation or of Bharat-Pak Cricket he had his clear & strong views which gained him criticism from the so called seculars but he kept on walking on his chosen path like a True Tiger! He would always take trouble to call many of us when we would raise any Hindu issue. I recall his support call when the Rajasthan Govt arrested me for distributing Trishool & his roaring Har Har Mahadev, Jai Bhavani – Jai Shivaji still rings in my ears.”
    Dr Togadia said, “Now it is the responsibility of all Hindus to fulfill his dream of Hindu Rashtra. I expect the Union Govt to pass the law to make grand Ram Temple at Bhagwan Ram’s birth place Ayodhya– the dream Balasaheb always cherished. I also expect the Maharashtra state Govt to urge the Union Govt not to hold Bharat-Pak Cricket anywhere. Our sympathies for the Thakrey family & for the Shiv Sainiks. His body is gone, but his blessings remain on all Hindus.”

In times the path chosen by Maa.Balasaheb was not an easy one I praise all the Sainiks and the Sena itself . May Hindus find thier voice through many more such leaders in Future.

    Long Live Shree Bala Thakrey in Hindu World
    By Dirgha Raj Prasai (Katmandu)

    Shree Bala Thakrey was one of the greatest Hindu nationalist in India. We, Nepalese people also always regard his aspirations and contribution.. Actually, he is just like great memorial Hindu leader in all over the world. He never compromised on any Hindu issue for the power or any allurement. His vision for Hinduism in immortal. He stood with all of us who chose the difficult path of the similar vision in the atmosphere polluted by power mongers & vote greedy Muslim appeasement. In the issue of Muslim reservation or of Bharat-Pak Cricket he had his clear & strong views which gained him criticism from the so called seculars but he kept on walking on his chosen path like a True Tiger! He would always take trouble to call many of us when we would raise any Hindu issue. In the time of Ram Mandir in Ayodhya was great.
    In 1520 the Muslim ruler Baber came, plundered, ruined, and demolished Rama Temple and built Babri Masjid using the demolished debris. The events of December 6, 1992Hindus attacked the Babri Masjid, they were only taking over their sacred place and thousands of history. No nation can afford to ignore the history. History of mankind has not started on 1528. Among the excavation yields ASI mentioned were stone and decorated bricks, mutilated sculpture of divine couple, carved architectural members including foliage patterns, amalaka, kapotapali, doorjamb with semi-circular shrine pilaster, broken octagonal shaft of black schist pillar, lotus motif, circular shrine having pranjala (watershute) in the north and 50 pillar bases in association with a huge structure. This should give some idea of the magnitude of the distortion involved in turning Babar into a tolerant person, let alone a prince charming. And when in a particularly happy mood, he composed the following dirge: ‘For the sake of Islam I became a wanderer; I battled infidels and Hindus. I determined to become a martyr Thank God I became a holy warrior.’ http://savetemples.org
    Sudhir-Architect has posted- (in shirt) In 1528 A.D. Babar came to Ayodhya and he destroyed the ancient temple and on its site built a mosque, still
    known as Babar’s mosque. The materials of the old structure [i.e., the temple]
    were largely employed, and many of the columns were in good preservation.” Guru Nanak. He was a contemporary of Babar, and an eyewitness to his vandalism. Nanak condemned him in the strongest terms. The historian Harsh Narain in his book The Ayodhya Temple Mosque Dispute: Focus on Muslim Sources, writes: “Guru Nanak, according to Bhai Man Singh’s Pothi Janam Sakhi, said to have been composed in 1787 Anno Vikrami/1730 A.D., visited Ayodhya and said to his Muslim disciple Mardana: ‘Mardania! eh Ajudhia nagari Sri Ramachandraji ki hai. So,chal, iska darsan kari’e. Translation: ‘Mardana! This Ayodhya city belongs to Sri Ramachandra Ji. So let us have its Darsana.'” This indicates that Nanak visited Ayodhya shortly before the destruction of the Rama temple by Babar. Another work by Baba Sukhbasi Ram gives a similar account, again suggesting that Nanak visited Ayodyha before the temple was destroyed by his contemporary, the Mughal invader Babar.
    Since 1992, we all Hindus in the world were disturbing about the confusion of Ram Janambhumi of Ayodhya, but at 30 Sep-2010, UP- High Court’s verdict and the unambiguous decision that the Ram Janma Bhumi Mandir site is indeed the birth place of Lord Ram and indeed a Hindu temple has existed there from time immemorial. We Nepalese Hindus never forget the great leadership of Shree Thakrey and BJP also.
    Muslim sources also give a similar account. After the destruction of Babar’s mosque the excavation report said- ‘These pits gave away two-thousand year
    old molded bricks and ornate stone pieces of different shapes and sizes. The
    news item dishonored these facts. Beautiful stone pieces bearing carved Hindu ornamentations like lotus, Kaustubh jewel, alligator facade, etc., have been used in these walls. These decorated architectural pieces have been anchored with precision at varied places in the walls. A tiny portion of a stone slab is sticking out at a place below 20 feet in one of the pits. The rest of the slab lies covered in the wall. The projecting portion bears a five-letter Dev Nagari inscription that turns out to be a Hindu name. The items found below 20 feet should be at least 1,500 years old. According to archaeologists about a foot of loam layer gathers on topsoil every hundred years. Primary clay was not found even up to a depth of 30 feet. It provides the clue to the existence of some structure or the other at that place during the last 2,500 years. Please read- detail-http://www.hvk.org/specialarts/safa/safa.html

    Muslim and Christian religions also took birth long after the creation of Hindu religion and its civilization. An extensive and erudite amalgam of Hindu knowledge brings together the scholarly and the spiritual. It reflects the culture of one of the oldest and the riches living civilizations of the world in all its glory and splendor. It is proved that Jesus was influenced on Vedic Hindu philosophy.
    Hindu religion is the most personally expansive and psychologically empowering religion on earth. It is a path that teaches its followers to be fearless, dedicated, focused, strong, assertive, self-controlled, virtuous, self-reliant, and to strive for excellence in all endeavors. It teaches us how to be civilized. Vedic-Hindu can only empower us is such a manner, however, when the full philosophy and lifestyle of religion is actually followed and practiced in daily life. Hindu is a religion of the possible. It is a tradition that teaches us that anything and everything that we can dream is attainable. We, Hindus are radically free to perform any positive task, to reach out boldly toward any constructive goal, to achieve any vision that our imaginations can reveal. The Hindu religion is more democratic and frees us from the bonds of ignorance and fear that bind us, and gives mighty wings to realize our inner yearning for peace, joy, and unlimited freedom.
