    Pawar meets Shiv Sena

    Sharad Pawar meets Shiv Sena supremo over IPL concerns | Cricket News | Indian Premier League 2010 | Cricinfo.com

    This is a travesty.

    Thackeray has asked for a detailed presentation on the issue which we will be providing in couple of days and thereafter he would consider our request."
    WTF? Who the hell is Thakaray to demand such a thing? He's the one issuing the threat. This guy is the scum of the earth, and I can't believe people have to kowtow to him.

    And just when he had a lot of political egg on his face too. For one, he essentially "dared" Rahul Gandhi to visit Mumbai, which he did and apparently to quite large crowds. And for another his long time political allies took a 180 opposite position by praising Shahrukh Khan recently, as well as making nonsense of his Mumbai for marathi manoos garbage.

    Sharad Pawar has lent him badly needed legitimacy of any sort, and perhaps that exactly is the point. These scumbags all watch out for each other (Pawar has never been a clean one either). If Thackeray was such a "patriot", then wtf is Dawood Ibrahim's gang doing still running their extortion racket in his backyard!

    BTW both the central govt (very explicitly by the home minister, specifying Australian IPL players) as well as the state government have stated that IPL will be provided all needed security.

    There never was much of a question of security regarding IPL. For people who are roughly aware of Thackeray's operations - they work best roughing up individual citizens and shopkeepers. No way can they take on the police or the government or perform quasi-governmental functions. During and after 11/26, they were completely absent from and completely irrelevant to just about any thing.

    Would it be wrong for that article to have the words "SS" changed to "BNP", "Mumbai" changed to "Birmingham", "Thackeray" to "Griffin", "Pawar" to "Morgan" and "Australian players" to "Pakistani players"?

    If not it's rather worrying. I'd thought India had moved on from this sort of dangerous nonsense.

    Pawar has his own intrinsic motives. His NCP party is constantly at loggerheads with Congress... so he might be looking for alternate allies in the next election...

    This is absolutely ridiculous!! I agree with Silenstriker. Going into talks with this extermist nutcase is absosultely ludicrious to say the least. Indian filmmaker Anurag Kashyap who recently had trouble with the Thackerays said "What happens is, individuals from our industry who get into a situation with these elements reach a compromise with such elements". Understatement of the year!!

    That's crap.These goons will be out tomorrow and continue where they left. Government is playing a dangerous game here, at one hand they go and visit the terrorist in his house to appease him and in the other hand they make shadow arrests to show face to the nation.

    Government (mainly Congress) is playing Political Game, too big for anyone to imagine. They have been mute spectators for god knows how many years.

    This is so freaking frustrating and embarrassing as an Indian. What is so hypocritical that we have been shouting from the roof top about the lack of Action in Australia but have done nothing at home to stop these Terrorists .

    As far as politics is concerned, India has been becoming an increasingly pathetic and is supported by shameless Indian media. Yesterday I subscribed to an Indian Channel which has a 30 minute news program in the evening. This effing news program spent all the time on Pakistan, Fonseka and Outsourcing. I could not believe the stuff that was being shown there, Balochistan Movement ? May be there is a lot of truth in what our friends from across the neighbors are saying that we have a hand in whatever is going on there.
