HENB | Mumbai | Oct 13, 2015:: The Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray on Tuesday felicitated six party workers, who smeared ORF ( Observer and Research Foundation) chairman Sudheendra Kulkarni’s face with black paint to protest former Pakistan Foreign Minister Khurshid Mahmood Kasuri’s book launch in Mumbai.
The Sena workers met Shri. Thackeray at the latter’s residence ’Matoshree’ in suburban Bandra.
“During his meeting with these activists, Uddhavji honored them for their work,” a source close to the Sena leader said.
The six Shiv Sainik — Gajanand Patil, Dinesh Prasad, Ashok Waghmare, Prakash Husbe, Samadhan Jadhav and Venkatesh Nair — were on Monday arrested and later released.
Meanwhile, ‘guilty mind’ Kulkarni on Tuesday described himself as an “agent of peace” and not a “Pakistani agent” as labelled by Shiv Sena and asked the saffron party to respect other people’s freedom of expression.
A Shiv Sena spokesperson told HENB, “Sena Chief honored the Hinduvadis who poured black paint on Sudheendra Kulkarni as a protest against ‘growing Pakistan within India’ This ORF chairman is always silent when our soldiers are gunned down on borders by Pakistani militants in the name of Jihad. “
Earlier, national spokesperson of shiv Sena, MP of Rajyasabha and senior Shiv sena leader Sanjay Rauth categorically said, “smearing ink is a very mild form of democratic protest. They are so upset about ink. Imagine when our soldiers are killed and their blood is spilled. It is not ink, it is the blood of our soldiers.
“Nobody can foretell how public anger will explode. People in the country are angry over the violence and bloodshed by Pakistan. We do not have anything personal against Kasuri or anyone else,” Raut said.
