NDA ally Shiv Sena was hit on by Finance minister Arun Jaitley for his views that had triggered vandalism across India. This disturbing trend has been brought to the limelight as the system has failed to take control of the situation. Jaitley expressed his concern by stating, “What is disturbing is when these acts of vandalism are increasingly publicised, many are encouraged to use similar methods”. He strongly believes that the people responsible for the jeopardy should be criticised.
The recent attack on the BCCI office in Mumbai by the Shiv Sena was the main issue that Jaitley was pointing towards. The scheduled meeting between the Pakistani and Indian board chiefs was disrupted, hence keeping the peace at stake for both the countries.
After this event, Jammu and Kashmir MLA Rashid was smeared with ink on his face for hosting a beef party earlier this month. He was on a visit to Delhi. Such incidents add on to the already sensitive issues of the society and have resulted into communal violence.
Besides these attacks, BJP leader Sudheendra Kulkarni had also been attacked in the same fashion with ink smeared on his face by the Shiv Sena volunteers. This incident took place during a book launch of ex-Pakistan Foreign minister Khurshid Kasuri.
“We have to have same standards for all. We all have to convey differences in restrained manner,” said Finance Minister. India being a cauldron of diversity and culture has conveyed different opinions with utmost civility. A proper civilised mode has to be maintained to have decorum in the proceedings.
The rising violence has initiated severe criticism against the failure in curbing the problem of communalism by the BJP government. To tackle the growing issue, Jaitley has asked Amit Shah to convey the leaders from stating controversial remarks. Prime Minister Modi has taken note of the situation and is dealing with issue, says Jaitley.
