Anti-Mumbai virus has increased: Bal Thackeray

Written by: Staff

Mumbai, Feb 4: Shiv Sena Chief Bal Thackeray on Thursday, Feb 4, said that an anti-Mumbai virus has increased in the country but it would have no impact on his party.

Shiv Sena Supremo termed the raking up issue of former Pakistan cricketer Javed Miandad's visit to his residence five year ago as "Goebbels' propaganda".

In an article in Sena's mouthpiece 'Saamana', Thackeray said, "The Pakistan cricketer's visit to my house is being capitalised for political gains. I would like to state that it won't have any impact on Shiv Sena and Shiv Sainiks."

He said that his meeting with Javed Miandad was arranged by former cricketer Dileep Vengsarkar.

"There has been a spurt of anti-Mumbai and anti-Maharashtra virus. It is not surprising because some people have been hurt that Maharashtra got Mumbai," Thackeray said.

Meanwhile, NCP MLA and former minister Nawab Malik has said the 2004 visit by Miandad to Thackeray's residence shows that "Thackeray has no right to call actor Shah Rukh Khan anti-national.

"Thackeray felicitated Miandad, who is not only a Pakistani but he is also related to India's most-wanted criminal Dawood Ibrahim," Malik added.
