Mr. Raj Thackeray! Mumbai can smile again today, as all terrorists were gunned down and Hotel Trident Oberoi, Nariman House and Hotel Taj have been cleared. People of Mumbai, who have been living in panic and terror since Wednesday night, now can relax and get back to work.
I don’t where you were for the past 3/4 days, but I can assure you that you can come out of your hiding now and roam freely on the street of Mumbai. No, Mr. Thackeray, the credit does not go to you or MNS, who always talked about the pride of Marathi Manoos. MNS did not save Mumbai, it were our Army and NSG Commandos, who rescued Mumbai from these terrorists. If I am not wrong, Major S. Unnikrishnan (Originally from Bangalore and Officer from Bihar Regiment) and Commando Gajendra Singh (Dehradun) were not Marathi Manoos, still they sacrificed their lives for the safety of Mumbai.
Mr. Raj Thackeray, if you still believe that Mumbai was saved by any Marathi Manoos, think again. The Army and NSG Commandos were not Marathi Manoos only. They were from Bihar, UP, Punjab, Haryana, Rajasthan, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, North East and all other parts of India. Still they fought for the people of Maharashtra, as they consider themselves as INDIANS.
Our braveheart martyrs Hemant Karkare (originally from Madhya Pradesh, but had chosen Maharashtra as his ‘Karma Bhoomi’), Ashok Kamte and Vijay Salaskar did not consider themselves ‘Marathi Manoos’. They laid down their lives for the safety of Indians and Foreigners.
Mr. Raj, Isn’t it high time we abandon regionalism and join hands together to work for national integration and fight the biggest menace – terrorism together. They can’t break us if we are united. There is no ‘Marathi Manoos’ or ‘North Indian Bhaiya’, Mr. Raj Thackeray. We all are Indians and let’s pledge our support to the national cause. Mr. Thackeray, Will you stop now??? I hope the good sense prevails now. Jai Hind!
