In an inferior rip-off of Emraan Hashmi’s Dawood character in the movie ‘Once Upon a Time in Mumbai’, Shiv Sena spokesperson Sanjay Raut today tweeted a famous dialogue from the movie- “Agar raaste ki parvah karunga toh manzil bura maan jaegi(If I care about the path, the destination will be offended)”
In the movie ‘Once Upon a Time in Mumbai’, a delinquent Emraan Hashmi playing the character of Dawood Ibrahim smugly responds back to the Police officer’s apprehensions about his chosen path. He says, “Agar raaste ki parvah karunga toh manzil bura maan jaegi” to assert that for him the end goal is more important than the chosen path.
The tweet from Raut came amidst the reports of Shiv Sena betraying its alliance partner BJP and forming the government in Maharashtra by aligning with their ideological opponents- NCP and the Congress party. Sena had already made it clear that it can go to any extent to fulfil its singular goal of installing a Shiv Sena chief minister in the state if that even means forming an alliance with NCP chief Sharad Pawar, who allegedly had dubious links with dreaded gangster Dawood Ibrahim.
Raut, known for shooting from his hips, cited gangster Dawood Ibrahim’s character’s dialogue from the movie to convey that he and his party do not care about the path so long as their aim of installing a Shiv Sena chief minister is accomplished. In the aftermath of the Babri Masjid demolition in December 1992, with communal tempers flying at an all-time high, Dawood and his dastardly men executed multiple bomb blasts across the city of Mumbai, killing several hundreds of innocent people, mostly Hindus.
NCP chief Sharad Pawar was the chief minister of the state then who deliberately lied to the people of the state saying that there were 13 bombs blasts in Mumbai, one of the additional ones, which he conjured up supposedly happened in a Muslim dominated locality, thereby trying to portray that both Hindu and Muslim majority areas were attacked indiscriminately.
In addition to this, Ex R&AW officer NK Sood had alleged that Sharad Pawar had financial links with the D-company, especially Dawood Ibrahim and he played a pivotal role in stonewalling security agencies from nabbing the Mumbai blasts mastermind and facilitating him in his escape from the country. Furthermore, in the light of the recent documents that have come to the fore, it has been revealed that even senior NCP leader, Praful Patel had close ties with gangster Dawood Ibrahim.
