Shiv Sena slams former VP Ansari for ‘insecurity among Muslims’ remark


Mumbai : Shiv Sena on Saturday slammed Hamid Ansari for his “insecurity among Muslims” remark, saying the former vice-president should rather have scorned at those who refuse to sing ‘Vande Mataram’.

“The former vice-president has said Muslims in the country are feeling insecure. He should instead have attacked the fanatic thoughts of those Muslims (who feel insecure). “A large part of the community is not ready to sing ‘Vande Mataram’. This is an insult to the motherland,” the Sena said in an editorial in party mouthpiece ‘Saamana’.

It said Ansari’s image would have got enhanced had he slammed those who were ready to leave the country but not chant ‘Vande Mataram’.
