NCP MLA asks Uddhav Thackeray to release Bhima Koregaon accused, who once compared Balasaheb Thackeray to Hitler

The request from the NCP MLA Jitendra Awhad comes at a time when the Shiv Sena supremo Uddhav Thackeray, the son of late Balasaheb Thackeray has been appointed as the Maharashtra Chief Minister with the support of Nationalist Congress Party and the Indian National Congress and has received widespread criticism

Soon after the newly selected chief minister of Maharashtra Uddhav Thackeray declared that all the cases on the Aarey metro car shed protestors will be withdrawn, an NCP MLA Jitendra Awhad had exhorted the Shiv Sena-NCP-Congress government to drop the charges slapped against Sudhir Dhawale, a prime accused in the Bhima Koregaon case.

Dhawale, a known Naxal sympathiser, was among ten activists arrested in 2018 as part of the inquiry into the caste violence at Bhima Koregaon on January 1 of the same year. They were accused of masterminding the violence and of having links with the banned Communist Party of India (Maoist).

It is noteworthy to mention that the accused Sudhir Dhawale, whom the NCP MLA Jitendra Awhad wants to be exculpated by the Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray, wrote a book likening the CM’s father Balasaheb Thackeray to German chancellor Adolf Hitler and called him a “fascist slave of capitalists”. In the book, Dhawale claimed that Balasaheb Thackeray held a dim view of democracy and espoused fascist ideology, like the Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler.

“Balasaheb’s admiration for Adolf Hitler was not hidden. Therefore, when the former PM Indira Gandhi called upon the Emergency in the country, Balasaheb had openly extended his support to her. This tiger was afraid of being incarcerated during that time. Just like Hitler’s rule was characterised by his sudden caprices, similarly, Balasaheb’s capricious behaviour was no less. Scores of innocent people died because of Balasaheb Thackeray’s whims and fancies. On one hand, his Shiv Seniks dig up cricket pitches to oppose matches between India and Pakistan, on the other hand, he invited Pakistani cricketer Javed Miandad to his house,” Dhawale said in the book.

Furthermore, describing Balasaheb Thackeray as “Brahminical Fascist Don”, Dhawale alleged in the book that in order to once again establish the supremacy of Hindutva, Balasaheb presided over the killings of innocent Dalits across various parts of Maharashtra. “In 1974 Worli riots, across Marathwada, Dalit women were raped, mass killings ordered, their houses were ransacked. Only after these incidents, Shiv Sena’s hegemony was established in the region,” Dhawale wrote.

The request from the NCP MLA Jitendra Awhad comes at a time when the Shiv Sena supremo Uddhav Thackeray, the son of late Balasaheb Thackeray has been appointed as the Maharashtra Chief Minister with the support of Nationalist Congress Party and the Indian National Congress and has received widespread criticism for allying with the very parties who stand against Hindus and had demonised not only Shiv Sena but also Bal Thackeray in the past.
