Prime News, National, Mumbai, July 12:- Taking a dig at the BJP over the terror attack on Amarnath pilgrims, Shiv Sena president Uddhav Thackeray has asked the senior ally to send ‘gau rakshaks’ to fight terrorists in the valley.
Seven Amarnath pilgrims, including six women, were killed and 19 injured when terrorists attacked a bus in Kashmir’s Anantnag district on Monday evening. While five of the deceased hailed from neighbouring Gujarat, two were from Maharashtra.
“They (the BJP) used to say that do not bring sports, culture, etc., in political issues. Today, religion and politics came together in the form of the terror attack. Should we understand that none of those terrorists would have been alive today if they had cow meat in their bags and not weapons?” Thackeray asked on Tuesday.
“The issue of ‘gau rakshaks’ is raging today. Why don’t you send these vigilantes to fight terrorists?” he asked while addressing representatives of various Ganesh mandals for the upcoming festival here.
