Congress ally Sanjay Raut demands Bharat Ratna for Veer Savarkar

Raut further hit out at the All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief Asaduddin Owaisi, saying that the latter is "provoking" Muslims.

Uddhav Thackeray faction leader Sanjay Raut on Sunday appealed to the Central government to confer the country’s highest civilian award Bharat Ratna on Veer Savarkar.

Asserting that Savarkar was a “brave son” of Maharashtra, Raut said, “Veer Savarkar was a legend of Maharashtra. He is a brave son of Maharashtra. Central Government should give Bharat Ratna to him.”

He further hit out at the All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief Asaduddin Owaisi, saying that the latter is “provoking” Muslims.

“BJP and Asaduddin Owaisi are ‘Ram and Shyam ki Jodi’. Shiv Sena will fight alone. Asaduddin Owaisi is provoking Muslims by wearing black Sherbani,” Shiv Sena veteran said.

He also said that Muslims would suffer if they get separated from Hindus.

“Muslims are a minority in the country, Muslims should not separate from Hindus, otherwise Muslims will suffer,” Raut said.

On Saturday, Owaisi, during a rally in Maharashtra’s Thane, slammed the Shiv Sena leaders, saying, “When NCP’s Ajit Pawar, Supriya Sule can become leaders, Uddhav Thackeray can become a leader solely on the virtue of being his father’s son, Eknath Shinde-Devendra Fadnavis can become leaders, can’t Maharashtra’s Muslims be like Sharad Pawar, Uddhav Thackeray and Eknath Shinde,” Owaisi asked.
