"The politics of hatred never succeeds"

WHAT an irony that the statement above, if you believe it, is coming from the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena's (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray. Isn't he the same man whose party people beat up north Indians on the streets of Mumbai some time back! Now his men have beaten a SP legislator inside the state assembly for taking oath in Hindi.

What angers me is when such politicians are questioned about their ways they'll mention excesses in some other Indian states. The militancy in Kashmir or Assam can never justify violence in any part of India.

I guess Maharashtra has resigned itself to the kind of politics that Bal Thackeray started. Raj carries on the same legacy.

Just wonder what would happen if the other 27 Indian states follow suit. May be Raj Thackeray has some answers!
