The #ShivSena was launched on 19 June 1966 by #BalThackeray. Its initial targets were #SouthIndians. The genesis of the Sena had its roots in a similar anti-South Indian campaign by his father #PrabodhankarThackeray in 1922 Thread:
#UddhavThackeray #politics #Mumbai #Maharashtra ImageImageImage
Keshav Sitaram Thackeray was a journalist, author and social reformer. He was referred to as Prabodhankar Thackeray because of his periodical 'Prabodhan' in which he took on casteism and obscurantism.
The Shiv Sena’s birth had its roots in a campaign launched by Prabodhankar through his Prabodhan in 1922.

I wrote this to a #BJP supporter who wanted to know my political position. I am expanding and sharing it here.

1. BJP is as corrupt and inefficient as #Congress, but it gets a free pass because it is successfully advancing the cause of #Hindu #majoritarianism.

2. Examples are #Rammandir, #kashivishvanathtemple, #Article370, #TripleTalaq, #UCC, #CAANRC, #Cowslaughter bans, random #lynchings of Muslims, ban on #Azan in public, etc. A majority of Hindus in India support these, as they believe these will "put Muslims in their place."

3. In fact, #Corruption under the BJP is likely to be far worse than under Congress rule, because the media (which is now entirely under the control of Modi's corporate cronies like A&A) simply refuses to investigate any BJP corruption scams. Examples: #Vyapam, #Rafale...

India's so-called "liberals" have been shedding copious tears on the "injustice" of the SC verdict on the #ShivSena case.

Indian liberals are brainless and shameless.

The Shiv Sena was, is, and will be a bigoted party, whichever flavour you pick - Uddhav, Raj, or Shinde.

Don't forget that #UddhavThackeray fought the election along with the #BJP. He split with the #BJP only when they refused to yield the CM post to him.

The alliance with the #Congress and #NCP was never about principle, it was for power. This was an unprincipled power grab.

This is still the same Shiv Sena that supported the Babri Masjid demolition, that supported the installation of the portrait of #Savarkar opposite that of #Gandhi in Parliament (kinda like #Trump saying there are good folks on both sides), that engineered the #1993riots.

Pandit Vishnu Digambar Paluskar (1872-1931) was a Hindustani classical singer. Paluskar stood up to Maulana Mohammed Ali Jauhar who opposed his musical performance in the Kakinada session of the #IndianNationalCongress in 1923
#history #heritage #music #Maharashtra ImageImage
Paluskar has sung the original version of 'Raghupati Raghav Rajaram' & arranged 'Vande Mataram' India's national song. He is also credited with ensuring that #music & musicians secured the respect that they deserved.

This thread is based on the writings of social reformer & journalist Prabodhankar Keshav Sitaram Thackeray. Prabodhankar, the father of late #ShivSena supremo #BalThackeray wrote about Paluskar on 17 October 1942. Image

Vinayak Damodar Savarkar is one of the most complex personalities in recent history. Read this thread to know more about #Savarkar, the man, revolutionary and #Hindutva demagogue.

#thread #history #RahulGandhi #MahatmaGandhi #UddhavThackeray #RSS #ShivSena #Maharashtra #Hindu Image
Unfortunately, when the debate is polarised between the extremes of black & white, it does not do justice to the complex personality of #Savarkar as a man, revolutionary, reformer, #Hindutva ideologue & an accused in the assassination of #MahatmaGandhi.
What makes #Savarkar stand out among his contemporaries is his strong hero complex bordering on narcissism, and the extreme and often contradictory elements of his personality.

It is claimed that #VDSavarkar had no relationship with the #RSS. But, this is not borne out of historical evidence. Read this thread to know more.

While in the Ratnagiri jail, where Savarkar was shifted in 1921 from the Cellular jail in the Andamans, he wrote his seminal work ‘Essentials of Hindutva,’ which laid the foundations of Hindutva as an ideology.
It laid emphasis on cultural nationalism as against a territorial one, and said that India was for the Hindus alone, and not for the Muslims or the Christians.

An elitist, upper-class & upper-caste dominated discourse often equates the sense of being 'Marathi' to those who have #Marathi-sounding surnames. But the sense of a #Marathiidentity transcends these boundaries. "Non-Maharashtrians" have enriched #Marathi literature & social life
Some examples:
16th-17th century bhakti- warkari saint Shaikh Muhammed of Shrigonda in Ahmednagar district, a Muslim by birth, wrote abhangs and books in #Marathi.

#Maharashtra #Marathiculture
He says:
Because of Gopala, I have transcended norms of purity...
Shaikh Muhammed may be an avindh (an Abrahamic or one whose ears were not pierced like those of Hindus), but Govinda resides in my heart.
