Hindi oath row: Petition filed in SC against Raj
New Delhi, Nov 10: A petition has been filed in the Supreme Court seeking registration of an FIR against MNS chief Raj Thackeray for assaulting SP MLA Abu Azmi for taking oath in Hindi instead of Marathi.

The petition also sought a direction to the Election Commission to de-recognise the MNS for sparking violence "throughout the country" by whipping up parochial feelings.

Sugreve Dubey, counsel for the petitioner, made an impromptu mention of the petition before a Bench of Chief Justice K G Balakrishnan, Justices P Sathasivam and B Sudershan Reddy.

The petition claimed the incident has provoked country-wide violence in the name of language and regionalism, thus threatening national unity.
