Boycott Shiv Sena

I seriously feel that the main honcho-ponchos of Shiv Sena Party have nothing better to do these days. Not that they ever did much for the city’s betterment but atleast they were never so frequent with daily new headlines.

Couple of day’s back they were busy ripping off posters and having a showdown with their newly-found opposition, Raj Thackeray’s Maharahtra Navnirman Sena. And on Sunday, Mr. Bal Thackeray threw another bouncer by urging fellow Indians to boycott all the matches involving the Pakistani cricket team during the on-going Champions Trophy.

DNA Mumbai Reports:

In a hard-hitting article in the Sena’s mouthpiece Saamna, he said, “We have been saying for years now that there should not be any cricket match between Pakistan and India. We are also cricket lovers but not at the cost of our national pride.”

Citing the July 11 train bombings here in which nearly 200 persons were killed, Thackeray asked, “How will the country progress if we are not even able to demonstrate our condemnation of Pakistan’s terrorist activity by boycotting cricket match with it?”

On the heightened security around the stadium here to prevent Shiv Sena members from disturbing the match or digging up the pitch, he asked, “Why so much effort to protect our enemies?”

For once I agree with Mr. Bal Thackeray’s ideology. I mean seriously, why we should go thru so much effort to protect or bear our enemies – So let’s start by boycotting the Shiv Sainiks from creating nuisance in Mumbai city. Haven’t we been tortured and troubled by them enough!

    Thats what happens when thugs are allowed to make political parties like shiv sena who become rich on the backs of the poor. The poor kill, beat people up, put up posters, threaten people…even die for these elites. The elites will say in their speeches that they are working for the poor. However, their only goal is the protect their turf so that they can pay off their bungalows and Mercedes benz. They want votes. Shiv Sena will do anything for the poor – as long as the they can profit from it.

    I love the sarcastic twist in the last para. I didnt catch it at first and had to read it again before i got what you were saying.

    I am all for banning Pakistan from all games, if we can ban the Sena from all elections and all the “danga-fasad”

    heh. i agree with arzan’s comments. a ban on cricket would be most welcome. more people get fat watching it on TV, than play. better sports like running, football, badminton seriously need a leg up.

    But that is quite another rant-worthy topic.

    Why ban pakistan cricket? Were any of the pakistani cricket team members involved in the bombings? A few wackos don’t represent the whole nation or religion.

    Excuse me from crashing your site guys. Thanks for not supporting hatred. We can put an end to this stupidity on both sides of the border so long as we show politicians that orwellian hate mongering does not translate into votes.
