Read:It is not the responsibility of the government to raise or lower the horns: Home Minister Dilip Walse Patil
Raj Thackeray was the first to raise the issue of bongs on mosques at MNS’s Gudipadwa rally. He had warned that if these horns were not taken down, Hanuman Chalisa would be played on the horns in front of the mosques. Since then, the issue has been heating up and the MNS, which has been aggressive in encircling the state government, seems to be getting the support of the BJP. This has heated up the atmosphere in the state. Speaking on the occasion, Sanjay Raut appealed to Prime Minister Modi and slammed the BJP. “Your people are currently raising the issue of loudspeakers. To resolve this issue, we need to formulate a national policy and implement it across the country,” Raut urged Modi. Are you going to threaten to make such a law and force it ?, Raut also asked.

The BJP leaders in the state have now woken up to the noise on the mosques, but the late Balasaheb Thackeray had openly taken a stand on the issue long ago. The Supreme Court has also issued an order in this regard. Our government is working accordingly and we don’t need anyone to teach us wisdom on this, ‘Raut told BJP. Prayers on the roads in Mumbai had created a big problem of traffic congestion. Balasaheb objected to that but he did not stop there. He listened to the clerics. The issue of lack of space in the mosque came to the fore. The government was a coalition. Therefore, Balasaheb asked the then Chief Minister Manohar Joshi and Deputy Chief Minister Gopinath Munde to come up with a solution. After that, the FSI of mosques was increased and the issue was settled permanently, he said.
