Shiv Sena is being called Janab Sena. We have not abandoned Hindutva. Look at the conspiracy, the AIMIM has given an offer to join the Maha Vikas Aghadi for no reason. Is there any connection? This is the real plot: The AIMIM would make the offer and then the BJP would launch criticism on it.

That’s an irate CM Uddhav Thackeray rejecting the unexpected offer made by All India Majlis-E-Ittehadul Muslimeen chief Asaduddin Owaisi to join the ruling political coalition in Maharashtra. Owaisi, in turn, made the offer to rebuff rumours that his party was the ‘B team’ of the BJP—secretly working to split votes in its favour in Uttar Pradesh. Indian politics is never far from farce.

The great tragedy of Kashmiri pandits: Revisiting the known facts

Part one looks at the political history of the state and the violence leading up to the exodus.
