The recent incidents perpetrated by Shiv Sena threaten to portray it less as political party and more as fringe group which brawls with people as a pastime.

Recently Ravindra Gaikwad, its MP from Osmanabad had boldly claimed on camera how he had beaten up a 60 year old Air India official 25 times with his slippers. This ensured a boycott of Gaikwad from both Air India and the federation of Indian Airlines which rendered him unable to travel by plane. He now a days is making the Mumbai Delhi Journey by a train or a car.

The Shiv Sena workers though seem to be giving a good competition to Gaikwad when it comes to shaming the party and the country’s political system.

Today the Gurgaon unit of the party claimed that it had shut more than 500 shops which sell meat and meat based product for nine days owing to the ongoing festival of Navratri. They also managed to close a KFC outlet. This feat was achieved by the efforts of about 200 Shiv Sainiks. Gautam Saini, the president of Shiv Sena Gurgaon also claimed that they have instructed meat shop owners to keep their establishments shut every Tuesday.

Shop owners claimed that they had no choice but to comply owing to the sheer strength of the Sainiks, but were mulling a police complaint.

This arm twisting tactic by the Shiv Sena irked many on social media, as not just is selling meat perfectly legal during Navratri but such an act was depriving supposedly legal enterprises from going about their businesses.

Here are a few reactions:

One had a sarcastic take on the issue:

People pointed out the hypocrisy of Shiv Sena which in 2015 had sold meat on the streets of Mumbai to defy the four day meat ban in the city owing to the Jain ritual of Paryushan.
