Mumbai attacks: By the way where is Raj Thakeray?

SMSes lampoon Raj: Politician & their tall promises of bringing guilty to book have been flooged on SMS network. A SMS stood out from rest, it read " Where is Raj Thakeray & his brave sena? Tel him that 220 NSG commandos from Delhi (no Marathi manoos, all south & north Indians)have been fighting for Mumbai's security, so that he can sleep peacefully tonight at shivaji park.Please forward this so that it finally reaches the coward bully" Mumbai kept burning for last three days, Raj Thackeray, the patron saint, who claims to have special rights to protect the interests of the Maximum city ’Mumbai’ has kept surprisingly silent.
What has shocked the people is the silence being maintained by the MNS chief, who is ready to fight it out on the streets over petty issues. The least that was expected from Thackeray was to come out and speak against the terror and stand with the victims. But where is Raj Thackeray? No one knows, not yet.
His stand against the migrants from Bihar and Uttar Pradesh over protecting the interests of the Mumbaikars has forced people to ask questions. They want to know where is Raj Thackeray now. Angry SMS messages are doing the rounds in the country over the conduct of the MNS chief as well as on blogs people are asking ’where is Raj Thackeray?’ A particular popular message says, “Please forward Raj Thackeray’s phone number, if you have it. Don’t know where he is when you need him. We want to him to go and save Amchi Mumbai along with his MNS hoodlums. The sons of the soil! Army NSG commandos are not Marathi Manoos. Why should they fight or lay their life for Mumbaikars…?”Taking a dig at the MNS chief Thackeray, who has made life very difficult for the huge migrant population in Mumbai, this SMS makes it very clear that people want an answer from him. Jagannath, a software engineer, said that Thackeray should have come out with his men and take on the terrorists. “Leaders like Thackeray can torment only innocent and poor people but when the real challenge comes up they just vanish from the scene,” he said, adding, “I want to ask him why he is silent and has not tried to make even a statement against the terrorists.” Another message doing the rounds in Delhi said, “Where is Raj Thackeray now? Tell him that 200 NSG commandos from Delhi being sent to fight the terrorists. So that he can sleep peacefully in Maharashtra....Please send across….” A Delhi resident, Satender Kumar, whose cousin works in Mumbai said that it is a strange that MNS workers and leaders did not come out to save their city, while they do not hesitate to hit out against their own countrymen. “I want to ask Raj Thackeray to come out of the hibernation and tell the people what he has been doing for the last three days as Mumbai burnt. Are they capable of beating and threatening only innocent people?” he quipped. The anger is palpable in Mumbai as well and it is not against Thackeray alone but all the rabble rousing politicians, who play with sentiments of the people. Another Mumbai resident on Skype, who identified himself as ’PAPA’, when asked about Raj Thackeray said, “He must be watching TV,” adding sarcastically, “Ask him and also check on the web. Another angry citizen has put an interesting post on his blog which says, “Raj Thackeray, chief of the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) has been reported as missing by the citizens of Mumbai for the last 3 days.
Here is a description:
Raj Thackeray is the founder and president of Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (Maharashtra Renaissance Party), which is a regional party in the state of Maharashtra in India. He is especially known for his constant tirade against North Indians residing in Maharashtra. He has led several “violent” movements to ensure Mumbai is freed from North Indians. He is about 5 ft 5 in height and wears glasses. It has been three days since Mumbai has been under siege from terrorists. Mumbai has yet to hear anything from this self-proclaimed savior of the city and the caretaker of the “Marathi Manoos”.
And yet, Raj is missing.

Karkare, Kamte, and Salaskar were Marathi police officers .. you rememeber the 200 NSG commandos but not these officers!!

Where is the Mr. Sanjay Nirupam? Where is Mr. Govinda? Where is Amitabh Bachan? Where is Jaya Bachchan? Where was Kripashankar Singh (he appeared only on Thursday when the PM was visiting!)

And where are Mulla Mulayam and Goonda Amar?

If Raj is a culprit - are these saints!

Raj Thackeray's Reaction to Mumbai Terrorist Crisis
1. Raj Thackeray has threatened to beat up the NSG, Army and Navy commando's if they enter mumbai again because most of them are non maharati Manoos
2. He also has threatened voilence if the Sign Boards of NSG, Army and Navy are not written in Marathi.
3. He also expressed his anger towards the non marathi media for giving so much attention to NSG, Army and Navy commando's. Where was the media when my Marathi Manoos gang was beating up innocent taxi drivers in mumbai ??
4. He has also threatened the residents of colaba for chanting "Bharat Mata Ki Jai" after the successful completion of NSG operations. According to him they should have chanted "Jai Maharastra"
5. He said that he has no problems with terrorists so long as they adapt to the Marathi culture and help him beat up innocent non marathis in Mumbai. In fact he welcomes terrorist action in hotels because it will deter outsiders from coming to mumbai.

I guess Hemand Karkare, Salaskar, Kamte and their MARATHI colleagues should have first counted how many marathis are trapped inside the buildings, and then only decided whether to risk their lives. Coz even though so many marathi cops have died to save Mumbai, marathis are now being told that 'north indian army' has saved them. There are so many marathi soldiers who hv died for this country..and are still at the border as I type this..I guess their sacrifices are in vain. General ArunKumar Vaidya who led the country during the Punjab Khalistan war, and who was killed by Khalistani terrorists was a marathi. He must hv been a fool to die for 'north indians', right?
Besides, what exactly was Raj supposed to do? You are talking as if all other politicians were battling it out at the Taj and taking bullets, while only Raj Thackeray was missing.He quietly went to meet the cops' families, his party arranged medical assistance camps..but he didn't exploit this in front of media. He didnt cause unnecessary extra pressure on d already stressed cops, unlike PM, Advani, Sonia who caused more pressure to d cops, and whose 'visits' were useless and unnecessary. Why didn't rahul gandhi go to save Taj, for example!
Unlike NORTH INDIAN leaders like lalu, abu azmi, amar singh, RAJ has never supported SIMI, Afzal guru etc.
It is due to your very own bhaiyya leaders like Abu Azmi, Lalu that terrorists are getting so much power. Oh, and major sandeep unnikrishan was a south indian from bangalore..you know very well how much south indians DESPISE hindi..how much bangaloreans hate north indian migrants. Still major sandeep died for this country, and I am sad his death was in vain- for the ungrateful bhaiyyas like you are worse than d pakistani terrorists.

Dr. Neha Srivastav November 30, 2008 at 1:00 PM  

well miss Neha thanks for leting us know we are terrorists(worst than that).
Well Raj is God the ultimate massiah of not only Mumbai but whole of India. All north indians are terrorists (as per you), so lets divide the nation on basis of North,South,East & West
This should make you immensely happy, i guess.
This is a democratic set-up and not anarchy so every one has rite to express its opinion. But we should respect each other's opinion. Belive me United we Stand Divided We fall
This is not the time to blame and counter blame. We sould stand united against any threat to our nation. Lets not play blame game. Terrorism has no boundaries and hardly has any face or religion. Delhi has faced it numerous times so has Mumbai.

I have lived in Mumbai for 15 yeras and now in delhi for past 10 years i hardle see any diffrence. So lets not fight over this issue.
Lets fight against Terror.

I agree with Dr.Neha Srivastav jee, we should fight againstterror and not as who is North Indian & who is West Indian.
Thx & Regards

Dr. Palki Vajpayee November 30, 2008 at 1:10 PM  

Well all the fellow Indians lets not fight over regional issues. We should know all politicians are same...lets not allow them to foll us. Lets fight together. Lets be united against terror. When India goes to war at international level with neigbouring countries (Like Kargil war)we stay united so why not in this civil war.
Lets peace prevail in this nation. Lets fight for peace not regionalism.
Thanks & Regards
