Mumbai: Amid the loudspeaker controversy in Maharashtra after Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray asked the state government to remove loudspeakers from mosques, Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar on Thursday said the government will discuss the court’s order and discuss it with home. Minister Dilip Walse will talk to Patil. “With regard to loudspeakers, we had said that we will discuss the court order,” he said. I had said earlier that we will talk to the Home Minister about this.
Earlier, Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut had also said that Maharashtra Home Minister has also given notice to maintain decibel level for Azaan. The debate broke out after Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray asked the state government to remove loudspeakers from mosques and warned of “put loudspeakers in front of mosques and play Hanuman Chalisa”. He said, ‘I am not against Namaz, you can offer Namaz at your home, but the government should take a decision on removing the loudspeaker of the mosque.
I am warning you now… Remove the loudspeaker or else we will put a loudspeaker in front of the mosque and play Hanuman Chalisa.” At the same time, Thackeray also appealed to Prime Minister Narendra Modi to conduct raids in mosques in Muslim areas of Mumbai and said that the people living there are “pro-Pakistani”. “I appeal to PM Modi to raid madrassas in Muslim slums.
Pakistani supporters are living in these huts. Mumbai Police knows what is happening there… Our MLAs are using them for vote bank, such people do not even have Aadhar card, but MLAs get them made.
