Seasonal Hindutva flag bearer Raj Thackeray again went up for secular hibernation. Raj Thackeray has issued a statement on twitter requesting Hindus not to perform Maha Aarti on Akshay Tritiya . Raj Thackeray put out his statement on twitter where he asked his party workers not to perform Aartis anywhere on account of Akshaya Tritiya and let Muslims celebrate Eid peacefully. He wrote, “Tomorrow is Eid. As said by me in my Sambhajinagar speech yesterday, I feel Muslims should get to celebrate Eid happily. We do not want to hinder the celebrations of anyone. Akshaya Tritiya has been celebrated by Hindus with pomp & splendor for 1000s of years. Raj Thackeray is no one to decide what will Hindus do on Akshaya Tritiya.

2 days ago Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief, Raj Thackeray held a mega rally in Aurangabad’s Marathwada Sanskrutik Mandal on 1st May which is marked as a Maharashtra day. The mega rally was held amid the ongoing loudspeaker row. He said “Today is first day of Maharashtra (Maharashtra Day). I won’t listen from 4th day from now. Wherever we’ll see a loudspeaker, we’ll also chant Hanuman Chalisa in front of the loudspeaker. I request Police to stop loudspeakers. If they won’t listen, we’ll take action.”

Raj Thackeray warned the Maharastra administration that till 3rd May festivals are there so he will be silent but from 4th May he won’t be silent and have to take action. He requested all Hindus to play Hanuman Chalisa at double volume and requested police to remove Loudspeakers. Azaan started playing while Raj Thackeray was speaking in his mega rally. He warned the police that if this isn’t stopped right now, his party workers would go straight to the mosque & take that down.

It must be noted that Raj Thackeray only vocal just before every BMC elections and then does nothing for the next 4.5 years.
