As controversy over student activist Sharjeel Usmani’s allegedly inflammatory and anti-Hindu speech at the Elgar Parishad gathering takes political strides in Maharashtra, the Shiv Sena has assured that he will be arrested ‘even if he hides in purgatory’. The Shiv Sena questioned the BJP over its claims of protecting Hindutva, while several Hindu and Sikh farmers are protesting in Delhi.
Taking to its mouthpiece Saamana, the editorial ‘Saamana Agralekh’ targetted Usmani while saying that his roots come from Yogi Adityanath’s Uttar Pradesh.
WHAT THE SAAMANA EDITORIAL SAID
The editorial said that the ones who organised the Elgar Parishad event will be held accountable, but Opposition leader Devendra Fadnavis should not throw as many tantrums.
