The way the Uddhav Thackrey’s Shiv Sena has reacted to the four day meat ban during the sacred ‘Paryushan’ festival of Jains, would have seriously saddened the soul of Balasaheb Thackrey, who dedicated his entire life to the entire strengthening the Hindutva agenda, the man who pretested against the slaughter of cows his entire life, the soul of that great man would have been hurt today.
Preparations for Ganesh Chaturthi are on full swing in Mumbai, have you forgotten that our lord is pleaded by ‘ladoos’ and not meat. You recently celebrated ‘Janmashtami’, you know that Lord Krishna consumes curd and butter not meat then why have you reacted against the ban and abused the peaceful and non-violent Jain community.
I am unable to decipher today that you belong the family of Shivaji Maharaj or Aurangzeb. In a country where the PM goes to a complete non-vegetarian country such as Dubai and consumes pure vegetarian food, a country where no meat of any kind is allowed in the Parliament, a country where vegetarianism is inculcated in the very ethos of the culture and birds and animals are worshipped, you want to kill and eat it.
Some people who are blaming the Jain’s on social media calling it political, and the Congress, NCP and Shiv Sena running rampant, my question is to the Jain’s in parliament. Has the pressure silenced you, the Jain community was once a strong power in the assembly, that is not the case now, but still to those who are still there, why are you silent when everyone is attacking your customs, beliefs and culture.
To all people who are raisng their voice against the, to them I ask is this the first time there has been a ban on meat during ‘Paryushan’? The ban has been imposed since 1964 in one form of the other. Even the supreme court has ruled in favor of it.
The Jain community never held a public rally demanding the ban, they never created any violence for it, but it seems nobody in the country respects non-violence anymore.
I would urge Shiv Sena to remove the name of ‘SHIV’ from their name. The real enemies of Hindutva come disguised as the champions of Hindutva.
