All answers here have digressed from the orginal question. Abu Azmi should be condemned and put behind bars with all his lathis experimented on him!!!

There is something called regional factor and sentiments. Sticking those sentiments earns friends otherwise we will find births of more Thackerys!! If I come to your house I will follow your rules.. and may be some concession would be given to follow some of my customs.. If I take advantage of the situation and put in my thoughts and rules.. i will certainly kicked out. So being Roman in Rome is apt.

I still remember our own Mangloreans were chased out in Mumbai.. These guys forgot that they gone to Mumbai to earn their living and live peacefully.. instead they had their ways of getting into the way!! They got want they deserved.

When we go to a different place and want to live for long there... its better to adapt ourselves to their culture for living peacefully.

First of all,...i would say that no indian should be made to feel like an outsider inside the borders of the country. Anybody, be it Raj or Mulayam, do not have the right to polarize one community or ppl from one region . None of them are angels they are just furthering their own agenda....Politicians are hell bent on dividing India..today mumbai, tomorrow Delhi because all the metros face the problem of migrant population....One should not forget that Mumbai is what it is because of its cosmopolitan nature...ppl from all over india have contributed to the development of mumbai.

Such things happen when there is skewed development....and abt what Raj is doing ....his comments however justified were unwarranted.

I would like to invite your attention to New Article published at http://www.rediff.com/news/2005/jun/14hit.htm on June 14, 2005. The article ad verbatim is reproduced here:
Like uncle, like nephew. This seems to be the case with Shiv Sena leader Raj Thackeray, when it comes to his fascination for German dictator Adolph Hitler.
While Bal Thackeray is on record saying that he is a fan of Hitler, Raj, who celebrated his 37th birthday on Monday, said that when it comes to organizational skills, there are a few who can rival the Nazi dictator's abilities.
"Leave aside his negative aspects like the barbaric annihilation of millions of Jews. There are several other things about Hitler, which any leader would envy," Raj told reporters at his Dadar residence when asked if he too was a fan of Hitler like his uncle.
"Hitler had everything. The one thing he did not have was the ambition to conquer the world," Raj said.
Needless to say Raj Thackerays present action ...more

FIRST AND FOREMOST WE SHOULD CLEARLY UNDERSTAND UNITED WE STAN DAND DIVIDED WE FALL..!
Now 2 wrongs dont make a right, Raj Thackrey and mulalaym and gang all are in the sam eboat - OUT OF POWER so what they want to do is play with the sentiments of poor and innocent but totally stupid people who have nothing to do but to follow like herds of sheep.
When people resort to violence then who suffers the leaders or the people themselves and whose property is at stake the leaders or the common man... so we shud be smart to understand its pure n dirty politics.
as for regionalsim is concered it was there and will be there untill and unless we as Indian come over it and behave and treat others as Indians and not describe our brethren on their region caste creed or language.

You know what? Thackery should spend some time on the Net and make a list of people who contributed to the progress of Maharashtra and when he does that he will hide his head in shame. That is one point. Another is, we are all Indians and are free to move freely wherever we want. Who is Thackery to order any one about?
If for example someone staying in Maharashtra feels that he has to give something to his almamater (the school where he studied) somewhere outside of Maharashtra how can Thack.. stop it? If at all others too have misbehaved that does not justify this attitude of BT. It is disgusting to say the least. WE ARE INDIANS FULL STOP.

mujhe nahi pata who is this abu azmi. yaha par mai little Indian TV dekhta hun. if he has done the same mistake tho yeh bhe evil hain. let there be no doubt aur no different rules. you see its equality for all. Raj thackrey ko mumbaikar logo ne reject kiya with clear and loud majority of strong 76%. 76% mumbaikars declared ki mumbai is for all Indians not just marathi. sirf aise he sacha akhand bharat ban sakhega. nothing more left to say.

mai tho thoda disappointed hun for not participating yesterday. aur am compiling all those comments yaha par on your answer to ruskhsana ji

students like me came to Mumbai based on the national talent selection. No citizen has any right to say who should come or not. Because this is something to do with shaping up of India and it's future. Mumbai or whichever city is like a catalyst for all the youth like me who aspire and dream high

harassing or resorting to violence is an impudent contravention of the Indian constitution. Thackrey dynas ...more

Can u list me what he has done for the betterment of his own Maharastrain ppl? But surely I can list you names and things done by North Indian Mumbaiya ppl who have had contributed towards maharastra.

No. There is no angels in Indian politics. What Raj is doing, it is a dangerous game. They cannot outstead other state people like bangaladeshis. Mumbai is not built by only maharashtrians. This is a dangerous card, which he is playing now for the vote bank. If other state people will do this, then what will happen to mumbaikars or maharashtrians.

Second it should be codemned these acts of racism and regionalism. Wherever it may be. We have one nationalism...india is not built by or centered by Maharashtra or mumbai. We have to develop one feeling that we are Indians. India is our mother land, wherever it may be. It is terrible to inject the feeling to the people that it is our soil, it is our language etc. It should be protested by iron heart. These people are not doing good for the whole nation. It is anti-nationalism.

Regarding other state politicians in Maharashtra politics, if maharashtrians will create like wise situations, then naturally they will take advantage of it. A ...more
