Mumbai: Shiv Sena has given a scathing reply to lyricist Javed Akhtar for comparing Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) and terror outfit Taliban. Shiv Sena in its mouthpiece Saamna (Saamna) has written that it is not fair to compare RSS To Taliban. It has also been written that the majority of Hindus should not be constantly suppressed. Shiv Sena wrote, "Afghanistan's Taliban rule is the biggest threat to the mean, society and mankind. Countries like Pakistan, China have supported him. The mindset of Hindustan is not the same.
Shiv Sena wrote that we are tremendously tolerant in every way. Under the guise of the veil of democracy, some people may be trying to bring dictatorship, yet they have a limit. So it is not right to compare RSS with the Taliban.' Shiv Sena wrote, 'Javed Akhtar is known for his outspoken statements. Javed Akhtar has torn the masks of those fanatics whenever fanatic, sedition distortions have erupted in the country. He has sung 'Vande Mataram' regardless of the fundamentalists. Yet we do not accept RSS's comparison with the Taliban.' Saamna writes, 'Your ideology is secular, so how can it be said that taliban ideologies supporting the concept of 'Hindu Rashtra'? The massacres, violence that the barbaric Taliban have committed in Afghanistan. Those who are declining mankind are shocking. Millions of people have fled the country for fear of the Taliban. Women are being tortured. Afghanistan has become hell. The Taliban have to bring only sharia power there. The concept of Hindu Rashtra-building is benign for those who try to make our country a Hindu nation.'
Shiv Sena further wrote, "If RSS or Shiv Sena were Taliban-minded, there would not have been a law against triple talaq in this country''. Millions of Muslim women do not see the ray of freedom.' Saamna writes, 'Hindutva thought is very ancient in Hindustan. The reason is that the Ramayana, the Mahabharata, is the basis of Hindutva. Outside attackers attacked Hindu culture with a sword. Conversions took take held under the British rule. Hindu society fought against all of them, but he never became a Taliban. Every nation in the world stands on the foundation of religion today. Buddhists, U.S.-European countries, Christians, and all other nations boast of their religion as the Islamic Republic. But is there a single Hindu nation on the world stage? Even after being a majority Hindu in Hindustan, this country still stands waving the flag of secularism. It is their reasonable expectation that the majority of Hindus should not be suppressed continuously. Javed Akhtar What we are saying is right, isn't it.'
