Mumbai, Dec 1: MNS chief, Raj Thackeray maintained silence for three days over the Mumbai Terror attacks. The fourth day he commented that BJP politicised the issues and Sonia Gandhi was showered by praises by Raj for her restraint in the past in similar circumstances. He also wrote a letter to the Chief Minister and Deputy Chief Minister that read, "The filthy politicising by L K Advani and Narendra Modi after the deaths of Marathi policemen in terror attacks shows that you have an opposition that only indulges in opportunism and exploitation of people's plight." "This is not a time to indulge in politics. Against this backdrop, one must concede, despite political differences, that the restraint showed by Sonia Gandhi at the time of attack on the Parliament was really commendable."
Condemning the inhuman editorials about the ATS probe in the Malegaon blasts probe by Shiv Sena's mouthpiece, 'Samaana', he writes "Going by the inhuman and dirty writing about Karkare and his ATS in the mouthpiece of a main opposition party a few days before the attacks, it has become impossible for the police to work without fear and in objective manner."
"But Karkare and other 13 brave Marathi policemen's martyrdom shows that terrorism is not Hindu or Muslim," Raj said.
"I urge you this is a time to govern ruthlessly. To clear out the encroaching migrants, to carry out combing without mercy," he said.
