Shiv Sena or Uddhav Thackeray did not demand burqa ban: Sanjay Raut
By Freepressjournal 06-May-2019
In his weekly column published in Saamana’s Sunday edition, Raut, who is the Marathi daily’s executive editor, said, “The burqa ban was not the demand of Shiv Sena or Uddhav Thackeray. Saamana just published an analysis of the developments in Sri Lanka.”
A Saamana editorial on Wednesday asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi to follow Sri Lankan President Maithripala Sirisena’s footsteps and ban burqas and other face-veils in India considering the “threat” they pose to the nation’s security.
Sri Lanka’s decision came in the wake of the Easter Sunday terror attacks that killed over 250 people.
As the editorial created a flutter and drew sharp reactions from various quarters, senior Sena leader and MLC Neelam Gorhe on Wednesday said it was not the official stand of the party, which is an ally of the BJP. It could be an individual’s view…it is not the official stand of Shiv Sena,” she said in a statement. Hundreds of Muslim women on Friday protested against the Sena mouthpiece at Mumbra near here.
