NEW DELHI: In yet another reflection of hatred against Muslims and Pakistan, goons of Hindu extremist organization Shiv Sena threatened a shopkeeper in Mumbai to change the name from Karachi Sweets or else face consequences.
In a viral video, Shiv Sena leader Nitin Nandgaokar is seen asking Karachi Sweets shop owner in Bandra West to change the name ‘Karachi’. “You have to do it, we’re giving you time. Change ‘Karachi’ to something in Marathi,” says Nitin Nandgaokar in video.
In another development, another anti-Muslim group the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) has sent legal notice to the shop owner, seeking to change the name or face court.
The MNS, it may be mentioned here, is notorious for its protests against Marathi boards and Pakistani artists in Mumbai, and declared that since Karachi Sweets is operating in Mumbai. Karachi, the capital of Pakistan, the traditional enemy of the country, has started a sweet shop based on the popular name ‘Karachi Sweets’. Therefore, this business is being done by crushing the nationalism of Indians’.
