If Jinnah was secular, why did Advani come to India: Thackeray

published on August 18, 2009

Flaying BJP leaders for heaping praise on Mohammad Ali Jinnah, Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray on Tuesday said calling the Pakistan founder secular was an insult to all those who shed their blood for India’s independence.

“(L K) Advani created an ideological confusion by lauding Jinnah. Jaswant Singh has added to it,” Thackeray said in an editorial in Sena mouthpiece ‘Saamana.’

“It is due to this ideological confusion that the Hindus became frustrated and directionless and the impact was seen in Lok Sabha elections,” he said.

“How can a person who demanded a separate state for Muslims be termed secular?” the Sena chief asked and added that “calling Jinnah secular is an insult of all those who shed their blood for India’s independence”.

“If Jinnah was secular, then why did Advani leave Sindh Province in Pakistan and come to India?” he asked.
