Raj Thackeray


The nephew of Bal Thackeray—founder of Shiv Sena-- Raj Thackery grew up under the stewardship of his uncle and formed right-wing Marathi ethnocentric regional political party, the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena. A graduate of JJ School of Arts, he worked as a cartoonist at Marmik, the weekly magazine of Bal Thackeray. He was affiliated with Shiv Sena, until 2006 when he decided to diverge and start a new political party. He is notorious for playing a despot and resorting to extortion and coercion to establish his Jingoistic norms in the state of Maharashtra. In 2008, he declared every shop in Maharashtra will and should carry signage in Marathi or else face the wrath of his stooges vandalizing the property. His policies often veer towards violent extremism directed towards immigrants from UP and Bihar.
