Timesnow Digital | Mumbai/New Delhi | Jan 13, 2020:: At a time when its ally in the Mahavikas Aghadi is extending support to the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) students protesting against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), Shiv Sena has backed the government over its stand against the ‘tukde-tukde‘ gang. In an editorial in its mouthpiece Saamana, Shiv Sena also said that ‘Akhand Bharat‘ (undivided India) was a dream of Vinayak Damodar Savarkar and that those shouting the ‘tukde-tukde‘ slogans should be ‘slapped’ with a map of ‘Akhand Bharat‘.
Welcoming the statements by newly-appointed Army Chief General Manoj Naravane, the editorial said that PM Modi should order the Army to enter PoK and ‘break Pakistan’s spine’.
In an interview on January 11, Naravane had said that PoK belongs to India and that the Army will take appropriate action when it receives orders to that effect. “There is a parliamentary resolution that entire J&K is part of India. If Parliament wants it, then, PoK also should belong to us. When we get orders to that effect, we’ll take appropriate action,” he had said. Sena’s ally Congress, on the other hand, had asked Naravane to talk less and work more.
“Akhand Bharat was a dream of Veer Savarkar” and that an order of such effect, ‘would be an honour of Savarkar’, the editorial said. “The Centre should now punish the tukde-tukde gang,” the Saamana editorial further added.
Shiv Sena’s often-reiterated stand on Savarkar comes at a time when Congress, its ally in Maharashtra, had, in a booklet, alleged that Savarkar had a homosexual relationship with Mahatma Gandhi’s assassin Nathuram Godse. The booklet, titled Veer Savarkar kitne Veer?, was distributed by Congress Seva Dal in Bhopal.
In what had triggered a massive political war of words, Rahul Gandhi, in response to his remarks on rape, had said that his name was ‘Rahul Gandhi’ and ‘not Rahul Savarkar’.
