The Shiv Sena Friday likened Maharashtra BJP MLA Ram Kadam to Alauddin Khilji, 13th century Sultan of Delhi, for telling youngsters he would “kidnap” a girl they like, and also questioned his party’s silence over his remarks.
The Sena said while Prime Minister Narendra Modi was keen on giving “justice” to Muslim women in triple talaq, in Maharashtra the MLAs of his party were creating panic among the women of the state.
“Queen Padmini committed ‘jauhar’ along with thousands of other Rajput women to protect their honour, prestige and religion. Their ‘jauhar’ against Alauddin Khilji and his tyranny is still inspiring women in India. But it seems time has come for the women in Maharashtra to commit ‘jauhar’ against the BJP’s Khilji,” the Sena said in an editorial in party mouthpiece ‘Saamana’.
