Stoking a controversy, the Shiv Sena Sunday demanded that voting rights of Muslims should be revoked as the community has often been used to play vote bank politics.
The Sena also compared All India Majlis-e-Ittihadul-Muslimeen (MIM) and Owaisi brothers with “poisonous snakes” who spew venom to “exploit” the minority community.
“Vote bank politics is being played in the name of fighting against the injustice meted out to Muslims. Their educational and health status is being used politically. This politics was once played by the Congress and now every other person calls himself secular.
“If Muslims are only being used this way to play politics, then they can never develop. Muslims will have no future till they are used to play vote bank politics and thus Balasaheb had once said to withdraw Muslims voting rights. What he said is right,” an editorial in Sena mouthpiece ‘Saamana’ said on Sunday.
The “secular masks” of all the so-called secular political parties will be worn out, once their voting rights are withdrawn, it said.
Taking a dig at AIMIM MP Asaduddin Owaisi for challenging Sena president Uddhav Thackeray to come to Hyderabad, the editorial said, “Owaisi dares us to come to Hyderabad. But we want to ask him if Hyderabad is in India or in Lahore, Karachi or Peshawar. The pride of Marathis is known in Pakistan, Afghanistan and Kandahar as well.”
“By saving the hiding place of snakes, you cannot kill them. Owaisi and his party are like a snake which, if fed, will do no good to the nation. AIMIM is an old snake,” it said.

  1. Shiva Sena has raised a ruckus by suggesting Muslims should have no voting rights. If memory serves me right, Dr. Ambedkar had made the same recommendation at the time of Partition. -Rajaram

    Editor's comment: Dr. Ambedkar was appointed to write the Indian Constitution and was
    an expert in the Constitutional Law. He must have given the citizenship of
    Pakistan for all Muslims as demanded by them and by not accepting it
    at the time of Partition they forfeited their right to citizenship of India.
    No other minorities wanted or succeeded in getting their own territory
    within the subcontinent of (British) India and were welcome to the right of
    citizenship of India. Many Indian muslims behave as if they are dual citizens (of
    Pakistan and India) and want to never take an oath of or pledge allegiance to India
    enjoying all the rights and privileges of citizenship of India and openly flaunt their
    loyalty and allegiance to Pakistan while residing in India. It would be appropriate to
    consider revoking their right to citizenship of India if they do not pledge allegiance to
    India and engage in anti-national activities. There must be a constitutional (judicial)
    mechanism to effect this change in the right to citizenship for those who have been
    given their own country to emigrate to if they do not want to loyally and harmoniously
    participate in the democracy. Anyone who threatens the right of free mobility of
    another Indian citizen or Indian leader and threatens violence for entering
    any legitimate part of India like Hyderabad has to be questioned as to whether he
    thinks he owns Hyderabad and has a right to prevent entry into that territory as if
    it is Pakistan which requires a visa to enter there. Indian government must
    place limits on such bullying. Those who do not follow civility in this respect
    must be deported to Pakistan or dropped out of the border of India. So there is
    no reason to think that Shiva Sena is not provoked by the comments and threats
    made by Owaisi brothers.
