Congress goes Communal
By Manuwant Choudhary
News today is a secular Congress Party shielding Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray in the 1992 riots.
All those who have lived in Bombay during those horrbile years will tell you how one man Bal Thackeray sitting in a suburban house Matoshri and spitting fire in a communal newspaper Saamna is responsible for the killings of hundreds.
The Srikrishna Commission set up to inquire the riots in Bombay in the aftermath of the Babri Masjid demolition at Ayodhya held Thackeray guilty yet the Bombay High court held him not guilty.
Now instead of Maharastra's Congress government appealing against that decision they are soft-pedalling the riots and shielding Bal Thackeray.
Everyone who lived in Bombay during those years will also tell you how a Congress government then simply watched as the mahaartis continued every evening with communal Hindus marching the streets and then the violence from which Bombay will perhaps never recover.
The Congress Party is as communal as the BJP.
Its not surpring why the Shiv Sena supported the Congress nominee Pratibha Patil over their own NDA nominee Shri Shekhawat.
It was simply a deal for Thackeray!
