Mumbai: The politics in Maharashtra regarding loudspeakers is not taking its name to stop. Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray has given an ultimatum to remove loudspeakers from mosques in Maharashtra by May 3. Meanwhile, on Tuesday, former Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) president Pravin Togadia said that the BJP should remove loudspeakers from mosques in the states where it is in government.
In connection with Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray's demand to remove loudspeakers from mosques, Togadia said that when the BJP was in power in the state, it did not take such a step. Praveen Togadia told reporters here, 'I want to appeal to my brothers in BJP to first remove loudspeakers in the states where their party is in government. You are protesting in Maharashtra, but not removing loudspeakers in Madhya Pradesh and Gujarat. Without naming Raj Thackeray, he also said that this demand was not raised when the BJP was in power.
Praveen Togadia further said, "We had demanded removal of loudspeakers from the mosques of Maharashtra about 10 years ago and we have been demanding removal of loudspeakers in UP also for the last 2 years." He demanded that the central government should implement the Supreme Court order on loudspeakers across the country.
