This comes to light after television grabs show Shiv Sena MP Rajan Vichare forcibly stuffing a chapatti into the mouth of an employee at the Maharashtra Sadan here. What triggered the whole controversy was that the employee was a Muslim and thereby forcing him to eat the chapati he had to break his Ramzan fast.
Here is what politicians, celebs and tweeples had to say-
Not just about employee being Muslim,even if he was a Hindu,behaviour of Shiv Sena MPs is unacceptable-Mehbooba Mufti pic.twitter.com/NlHim0fY8y— ANI (@ANI_news) July 23, 2014
Acts of Shiv Sena MPs are condemnable and strict action should be taken so that nobody could think repeat.— ashutosh (@ashutosh83B) July 23, 2014
The Shiv Sena issue isn't just about religious bigotry. It's about taking the law into your own hands. Mob justice by MPs is unpardonable!— Milind Deora (@milinddeora) July 23, 2014
What an absolutely disgusting and shocking act by ShivSena MPs to stuff rotis on someone fasting on Ramzan! Gross, thuggish, unacceptable!— Sagarika Ghose (@sagarikaghose) July 23, 2014
Hey Shiv Sena MPs, You police the police. You teach teachers. Now you are feeding the caterer. Confused lot you are.— Ramesh Srivats (@rameshsrivats) July 24, 2014
If news of Shiv Sena MPs bullying and forcing staffer to eat during his Ramzan fast is true, it is disturbing and sick.— Chetan Bhagat (@chetan_bhagat) July 23, 2014
Shiv Sena however denied misbehavior on the party's part and said that they were against the sloppy management of the Maharashtra Sadan and that the MP didn't know that the employee belonged to a minority community.
