Why Raj Thackeray Hates North Indians

Sudheera Kulkarni had written an open letter to Raj Thackeray in Lok Satta.  Here is a part of his response( Read the entire response here)

Gujaratis celebrate Garba in Maharashtra with a bang. We also enjoy it. Bengalis celebrate Navratri. We too participate in it. South Indians perform Ayyappa’s rituals and Marathis pray there. But chhatpooja is not just a religious festival. At least it is not celebrated as one in Mumbai. It is an akhada (wrestling ring) erected on Mumbai’s chest by Bihari leaders to show their strength. There lies the root of our opposition. Sudheendraji, are you aware of any widespread chhatpooja being celebrated by Biharis living in Mauritius, Dubai or any country close to the sea?

Seems like what is bothering Raj Thackeray is Chhath Pooja. Well Chhath is a festival dedicated to the Sun God, considered to be a means to thank the sun for bestowing the bounties of life in earth and fulfilling particular wishes.  This festival is also celebrated in the northeast region of India, Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, and some parts of Chhattisgarh. 

He and his party has done nothing but spread hatred , and divide this nation . He once said that “Hitler had everything. The one thing he did not have was the ambition to conquer the world,” Raj said, adding, “you can draw whatever conclusions you want from my remarks.”

He has criticized Amitabh Bachchan who is one of the most prominent figures in the history of Indian cinema of (listen to this) being  “more inclined” towards his native state than Maharashtra. Amitabh Bachchan is one person who has inspired people the way you may never understand. Mr Raj Thackeray I would like to ask what have you done for Maharashtra? Have you done anything for drought-hit Maharashtra farmers who are left to fend for themselves. How can people from Maharashtra trust you ,when you yourself wants to burn Maharashtra.

“Violence is the last refuge of the incompetent” , probably true in the case of Raj Thackeray. Raj Thackeray has drawn a lot of attention over the past few days . Simply due to the stand taken by him and his party on the North Indians living in Mumbai and Maharashtra.  In fact Raj Thacekray has been a struggling politician and his party only won 7 seats in 2007 municipal elections.

  1. Counter View :- Death of a Maharashtrian Manus

    Read and if you agree kindly Forward to Not Only Maharashtrian People, But also to Non-Maharashtrians.
    Let them also be aware of the Situation that may happen to their Jobs as well.

    A time will come in Maharashtra when, just like the Farmers in Maharashtra, the Graduate
    Youth of this State will Commit Suicide !!!!

    This situation will arise because, All the Jobs in Maharashatra then, will be Occupied by Non- Maharashtrians.
    Non Maharashtrians here means not people from North India, South India, etc., But those People who
    are Not Domiciled In Maharashtra. Similar situation may happen to people of other states too.

    Railway Recruitment Board aspirants are Brutally Beaten Up !!!

    There is large scale Rioting in Bandra, Kalyan, etc !!!!


    THINK. Why this Situation has come up ???

    The Actual Truth is this :-

    Since Independence India’s States were formed on the Basis of the Local Languages. Logical.
    Since 1976, The employment criteria of the Central Recruitment Board was divided into
    zones as per the General People of India. This division was based on the Local Language of the States.

    Zone-A Bihar, Haryana, HP, MP, Rajasthan, UP, Andaman, Delhi formed the Hindi Speaking Zone.

    Zone-B Maharashtra, Gujarat, Punjab & Chandigad, the Non Hindi Speaking Zone.

    Zone-C Southern India States like Kerala, Karnataka, etc. & North Eastern States like
    Assam, Mizoram, Bengal etc.

    The Central Employment Rule said that ‘All Exams for Employments in the respective Zones shall
    be Held in the Respective States Only.’ So that the Local People may get the Jobs in their Home Town.
    Very Logical. For 30 Years everything was going Fine.

    But since 1987, there was a Minor Change in the Rule 9 Part 9.2.2, for Zone -B Jobs. And this
    was made a Rule since 1988. This change was that ‘As an optional Language of employement, People of Zone-A
    can Apply for Jobs in Zone-B.’ This opened up doors of Employement for All Zone-A aspirants in Zone-B areas.

    But with this Clause there was a Sub-Clause, stating ‘ The Notice of Jobs in Zone-B areas for Zone-A
    aspirants, May be given in Zone-A Areas only.’ Because of this, Recruitment Notices for Jobs in Maharashtra, etc.
    are Displayed Only in states like UP, Bihar, Rajasthan, etc. But these Notices are Seldom displayed in Newspapers
    of Maharashtra, etc.

    So this time, for the 3000 Railway Posts in Maharashtra, 12000 Aspirants came from Zone-A areas.
    The Result of this is that, the Un-employed of Maharashtra is Remaining Un-employed. This will surely lead to
    Suicides in Due Course.

    Many Parties over these years Requested the Central Recruitment Board to Cancel this Clause.
    But this was Not done. The Result of this is, the Large Scale Beating Up and Rioting Today. This violent
    means is Not Correct. But has there been any choice Left today ???

    This mail is Not to Justify Violence, but to show to you how some Politicians, by Modifying some Rules,
    have Subtly ensured that their Constituency people get Better Employements. Why should all these Politicians
    hold rallies in Maharashtra ???

    How will anything be done, as all these Years people like Nitish Kumar, Ram Vilas Paswan
    and Lalu Prasad Yadav are the Railway Ministers. Today many TCs, Booking Clerks, GRP, in the Mumbai Railways
    are from Zone-A areas. Today Many New Trains have been started to these States. Holiday Specials & Garib Raths
    are also run specially for these States. This is a Fact.

    What Should Be Done ;- College Admissions and Employments should be Given on the Basis of Domicile
    Certificates. I remember in 1991, when I was applying for College Admissions I was asked to produce
    a Domicile Cert. But after my Batch this Rule was Relaxed. 17 years down the line we are Witnessing
    the Result of All this.

    Agreed, 10% Out of Maharashtra People may be Allowed. But First Think of the Sons of Soil. This should
    be applicable Not Only in Maharashtra, but also in other States.

    Read and if you agree kindly Forward to Not Only Marathi People, But also to Non-Maharashtrians.

    Let them also be aware of the Situation that may happen to their Jobs as well.

    First of all North Indian should look behind what good their state govt did for them & even their own contribution towards the state. I think the answer will be “NOTHING”. You guys just want to pin point a person who is fighting for the rights of the people of Maharashtra. Because you guys do not have any other state to go. No other state will entertain you like Maharashtra did. Even your own state is not capable of giving you what you deserve.

    UP & Bihar do not have proper infrastructure, education institutes, medical facilities, entertainment stuffs, good jobs & many more such things which are essential to live a good life. But they definitely have illiteracy, unemployment, starvation, arrogance, corruptions, lack of communication services, No right to information, No transparency in govt work, gundagardi & so on.. This keeps you away from your own state. See how selfish you are, you are not at all concerned about your own state. If you North Indians have guts go and ask your govt where do they stand in eliminating all the above issues.

    I would say that a person who is not able to clean his own house has no right to comment on the neighbor’s house.

  3. raj kamal

    but this is not a right way to handle the situation. if i don’t like anything then i should distroy that…isit really good. after all we all are human beeing not animal.what a few marathi did was really animal instict. if goverment has given them right to appear in that exam so what is there fault. raj thakre should try to re-Change in the Rule 9 Part 9.2.2, for Zone -B Jobs. And this will change the 20% the situation. but my dear indian you can not force any private firm to employ only local people. private firm want work with less payment to get maximum profit and secondly out sider can not make any union against the management of their firm.third thing students come to maharshtra to get good education it gives you many things at home, like on rent they gives you mony, in institute we understand eachother to understand inda better.when i did my engineering from solapur i was (all outsider from maharashtra) paying more then double of fee which is part of groth of maharashtra. i celebrated many festivals of maharastra with joy and happyness. i am north indian but my identity is INDIAN.
    after all i would like to say please do not try to change the people it will harm you indirectly,plz chage the system which will cahnge everything positivly.

  4. pratyush

    I have been staying in Mahrashtra for almost a decade now. And I have absolutely no doubts in my mind that it has helped me grow – as an individual and as a professional.

    Yes, I’m living a good life in Mumbai. But I have worked hard for it. I did well to get through one of the best B schools in the country (located in mahrashtra), i worked hard to be placed in one of India’s biggest companies and I work very hard to earn every penny that I get.

    I never got any of these because of any politician like Lalu yadav or Amar singh – I worked hard for it and hence deserved it.

    And I don’t think mob killing of North indians or violence will help the marathi manoos cause. We all get what we deserve. I wold rather suggest everyone to work hard to secure a good future instead of wasting time with selfish politicians like Raj Thakerey. Even after all this, he will still travel inhis Merc. and the common marathi manoos will struggle in locals unless he works hard to get what he wants in life

  5. DVD

    okay so here’s our guy with a solution….lets push all the people back to their states and then we’ll see what Mumbai has to offer to it’s natives:
    probably comunity wide suicide initiatives,
    govinda stampede, and bankrupt ganesha chaturthi….but they’ll have one thing to celebrate…their marathi brethern

    sach mein……Jai Maharashtra!!!

  6. Raj

    I agree with DVD, let’s just do it for a year at least 🙂

  7. Sameer

    Ha, I am really ashamed of what media is showing now a days about every thing including Raj and riots.

    But at the same time i am asking people to go to the its roots. Why some one like Raj want to go against Biharis? I am sure there should be strong reasons behind it…. No one likes violence nor Maharshtrian or Bihari……But still this is happening why????

    Just think and you will get your answers, I fully agreed with Rishi and going ahead want tosay….If you create any rule it should be same for all. In our country it is different on basis of languages or religion or cast……..

    So unless and until we understand importance of equality properly….we are going to face new and new similar problems as we have many states in INDIA.

    If you want one INDIA and really care about it…….First become equal and unite like other contries rules. (No diffr. Rules for any religion, rigion, cast or language all over INDIA).

    Other wise INDIA may no longer remain same as it is today………. Not Lalu not Pawar or Karunanidhi is interested in Unity of INDIA….

    …………..Pl. think over it
    Jai Hind

    Dont woory we will come in power soon and Op BLUE STAR -2 will give you ppl the right way .

  9. CrystalClearPraveen

    Mr. Jai Manse,

    I was by no means a counterview, it’s same view which has been expressed repeatedly by your leader.

    You are like a frog in a well, in Hindi, Koomandook. All the government jobs are advertised in Employment news/Rojgar Samachar. But you don’t get time from reading Samna, that’s the newspaper you like. Tell me if you can’t buy or read EN/RS, do you deserve to be in the job? No.

  10. Raj Kamal

    maharashtra or mumbai kisi ke paap ki jagir nahi hai, every indian has equally right to work anywhere in india. it is our duty to make our country strong and united to get progress in all fields. The act of Raj Thakre is much bitter than Md. Ali Jinnah. how a marathi is different from a bihari. if you relly think they are worst than you should take a positive step. what will you do if your (all marathi brother) mother give birth a handicapt child,will you kill him?if yes then i am agree with raj thakre, but if not than why all of you are supprting him. if yopu are tru maratha then you should support a poor man. all of you call them BHAIYYA and meening of it in your language is BHAAU, then why you all are behaving like this.if you (HIRSHI Says above) UP & Bihar do not have proper infrastructure, education institutes, medical facilities, entertainment stuffs, good jobs & many more such things which are essential to live a good life. But they definitely have illiteracy,????? you should see by going there, i have seen all maharshtra and UP, Bihar, Himachal, AP, MP, Rajasthan, Haryana, Orisa, chhattisgarh, gujrat, tamil, kerla, andhra, karnataka, himachal, punjab, J&K, ….allmost all india that’s why i can feel integrity of india. i love india and it includes all states and UTs. But You Koop-Manduk, thinks maharashtra is the last world

  11. sunil

    If India will take care of demands of all people living in different states, then there will not be such situations and if these demands are wrong then they should be informed accordingly and if Raj is taking such action then try to understand the situation. this is the third time such problem has occurred during railway exams. There might be some reasons. and media is behaving wrongly on such situation. they r creating bad impression of one state, it is a part of india. they might have their point of view and why india is divided such state wise then. each one should be given their own respect we are all indian

  12. raj kamal

    The action taken by media more wide. they did good and need to improve it. how raj thakre abuses on the stage it should be shown to all. The way he is going should be banned and must be punished. if something is wrong (if only he think), he has right to ask the goverment. also his uncle ( old thakre) can bublish this matter to his news paper(saamna) to show the govt the problem.
    98% crime is done to earn bread and north indian are not doing this. if you thing there is something wrong with the system, you should change the system. we all are indian and hav equal rights to earn money/bread. life of each indian has equal value then why GUNDA of raj thakre killed poor people. one of them was only son of his old father and has three sisters. can you understand the situtation. can you kill anyone in your family. why are we killing our own brothers. these political people can never understand problem of commen man. how many car raj thakre has and all of them are imported. his legal adviser is north indian. all north indian in mumbai are doing low grade jobs, can anyone can do this in his own town. ANY OF THAKRE HAS NEVER GONE OUT OF MAHARASHTRA, then how can they united INDIA, i am north indian but it is sad to say that after hotel taj attack, MNS people has started a SMS WAR, why? because all 3 killed senior officials were from maharashtra, but my dear friend this attack was on india and all commandos were india, then how a marathi is manus is different from INDIAN CITIZEN.
    think big, get big and mke india strong and developed.

    Marathi Manoos – A parasite on Indian Society

    Don’t blame Pakistan or the terrorist. They had the courage and pride to inflict damage to a country they believe is there enemy. We have to blame so called Indians like the Thackeray’s and the people who follow them (Marathi Manoos) who are making our society weak. These people unlike the rest of India have never had to struggle and have lived off the wealth created by outsiders. They have negligible contribution towards the growth of Mumbai which was created by outsiders who believed in national pride, hope, hard work and continuous struggle for progress. Mumbai was created by British, Gujaratis, Marwadis, Parsis and companies like TATA’s whose wealth came from their flagship company “Tata Steel” in Bihar. In fact most of these people don’t know or care about Indian History, have never stepped outside Maharastra and are not aware that Mumbai wasn’t even a part of Maharashtra. It was part of Gujarat before and the population of marathis in Mumbai was negligible before independence (http://www.mumbaispace.com/cityinfo/history.htm).

    Lack of enterprise, ethics, courage and hard work has resulted in a society which demonstrates incompetence in every area and has the potential to adversely effect the Nations growth and prosperity. Some of these examples amply demonstrate this:-

    1.) WEAK & CORRUPT POLICE:- 14 maharastrian policeman died without killing a single terrorist !!! This is because it is more of political force then a law enforcer. Why do they have fancy names likes ATS when they can’t protect themselves, leave alone protecting others, thier jeeps get hijacked by terrorist!! In fact at CST when a brave photographer (Anil Singh – who shot the photographs of the terrorists) informed armed policemen about the terrorists , they ran away. Inspite of all this we make these people National heroes and people like Sharmila the wife of Raj Thackeray sends SMSs glamorizing the non existent contribution of marathis in saving the city by stating that all policemen killed in Mumbai were Marathis.
    2) WEAK & CORRUPT POLITICIANS:- Pratibha patil – our president Mrs. Pratibha Patil – the cosmetic head of state? So much has happened. Mumbai and India was attacked and at war and Mrs. Patil was not to be seen anywhere? Why? Shivraj Patil – The worst home minister ever seen , he was more bothered about his dressing then the terrorist attacks on India. RR Patil – Mr Patil spoke and behaved as if he was featuring in a pulp Bollywood movie, during the 60-hour-long terror attack and its aftermath, with irresponsible sound-bytes serving as dialogues,” Clown, what happened to your statement “goli ka jawab goli se doongi”? Vilasrao Deshmukh , and the list goes on
    3) LACK OF ENTERPRISE:- Inspite of all the opputunities available you sont have a single Industralist from the state who has been able to create jobs at a mass level. There are many parts in Maharastra where shop keepers close from 12 noon to 4 in the evening and treat customers as if they are doing a favour by selling to them, when outsiders are more successful in competing with these incapable people they are beaten up. In most organisations in Maharastra the most incompetent people are generally the Marathi Manoos who were hired because they were easily available and are able to retain there jobs because of the support from local politicians.

    This is not a simple problem. A weak society influenced by paranoid cowards, completely detached from reality, confused and megalomaniacs like Raj Thackeray has the potential to completely destroy the country to take india to fragmented pre-1947 india , which was a period of intense repression from foreign forces where we saw large scale genocides, large scale destruction of hindu temples and blatant conversion of temples into mosques.

  14. Debashish

    We All Support Raj

    1. We should teach our kids that if he is second in class, don’t study harder.. just beat up the student coming first and throw him out of the school
    2. Parliament should have only Delhiites as it is located in Delhi
    3. Prime-minister, president and all other leaders should only be from Delhi
    4. No Hindi movie should be made in Bombay. Only Marathi.
    5. At every state border, buses, trains, flights should be stopped and staff changed to local men
    6. All Maharashtrians working abroad or in other states should be sent back as they are SNATCHING employment from Locals
    7. Lord Shiv, Ganesha and Parvati should not be worshiped in our state as they belong to north (Himalayas)
    8. Visits to Taj Mahal should be restricted to people from UP only
    9. Relief for farmers in Maharashtrashould not come from centre because that is the money collected as Tax from whole of India, so why should it be given to someone in Maharashtra?
    10. Let’s support Kashmiri Militants because they are right in killing and injuring innocent people for the benefit of their state and community..
    11. Let’s throw all MNCs out of Maharashtra, why should they earn from us? We will open our own Maharashtra Microsoft, MH Pepsi and MH Marutis of the world
    12. Let’s stop using cellphones, emails, TV, foreign Movies and dramas. James Bond should speak Marathi
    13. We should be ready to die hungry or buy food at 10 times higher price but should not accept imports from other states
    14. We should not allow any industry to be setup in Maharashtrabecause all machinery comes from outside
    15. We should STOP using local trains… Trains are not manufactured by Marathi manoos and Railway Minister is a Bihari
    16. Ensure that all our children are born, grow, live and die without ever stepping out of Maharashtra, they will become true Marathi’s

    dnyan kami asla ki sanshay vadhto –

    If you have less knowledge you will have too many doubts

    Neha – Please go through history again marathi manus has contributed in every sector

    Debashish- you better learn marathi and listen (this word is important) to Raj speech

  16. boss

    well all’s fine….what is wrong with this north indians????????????if you are so proud of your state and identity why dont you develop your own state than moving to places like maharashtra(the so called land of marathi manoos if you dont like them)…its because you people love to live and destroy others homes….why do you elect leaders who are on a statue erecting spree rather than worried about the development of their states????

  17. jai manse

    Neha kapoor plz go through d history again……. The Maharashtra & Indian was Saved by our maharashtra great son Chatrapati SHIVAJI MAHARAJ . then where was ur gujratis , marwadis & bhayas………………..
    there are many great childern given by a soil of maharashtra first study d whole history any den only speak

  18. me ek marathi

    Actually !!!
    Just Read this :

    you must’ve heard about MSETCL (maharashtra state electricity transmission limited) is a company belongs to state government. As per government rule only Maharashtrian (People having domicile of Maharashtra state) can only be an employee of this company. but now a days it is observed that north Indian are also getting this employment. It is shameful for our State government. Ain’t our Maharashtra student’s eligible for this job? Recently around 375 person have been selected for the post of Jr. Engineer in MSETCL in which many are from UP, MP and Bihar. are these people are more eligible than our maharashrtrian students? No, it’s not like that. Corruption is in their blood. wherever they go, there is an increment in the corruption. where they are getting domicile from ? Can we go to their state and occupy their jobs ? Just once try this. you will find it difficult to do so. In Maharashtra, min. 35 Engg. colleges have Electrical engg. branch from which about 1750 students pass every year. Out of these at least 1500 students appear for MSETCL examination. Don’t you from 1500 atleast 500 student are good enough to get selected and they required outsiders to fulfill this requirement?
    This is only an example which burns the blood.
    you can confirm this figure @ http://www.mahatransco.com.

    Please think about this and move a step forward through the law and rights.


  19. Satyajit

    SAD. Bihar, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh are BIMARU states.

    These states are a burden on the country. These sates put together have contributed less than Maharashtra alone!!!

    If we love India, lets us not fight Raj. He really is nothing compared to the stupid governments of BIMARU states!!!

    Raj, is not the problem, he is the symptom of uneven growth of India. Raj will disappear if we develop poorer states.


    UP’s birth rate is 4.8 children/woman!!! Maharashtra’s birth rate is 2.7 children/ woman.

    This just not Maharashtra, look at the link-

    Who is a bigger danger to India, Raj or incompetent government of north?

    The answer is clear. There is no free lunch!!!

    If we want to fight, let’s fight Lalu,Mamta, Rabri, and other fools.

  20. Abhay

    Dear Raj Thackery,
    A chandigarh lad, a jharkhand captain and a delhi boy won the world cup for us and dedicated it to a marathi legend. Your regional hatred has failed.
    Jai hind!!!!!

  21. Great review! You actually touched some nice news on your blog. I came across it by using Yahoo and I’ve got to admit that I already subscribed to the site, will be following you on my iphone 🙂

  22. Amit

    Just think where our country is heading. We are living in 21st century but we still discriminate on the basis of cast,region etc. We are Suppose to be the next generation of the country who will have the responsibility to make India a developed country.But Don’t you think this way we will take our country backwards?

    Why are we so selfish?When a student in Australia or UK is beaten and killed ,we all feel bad about it but the same thing when it happens in India, An Indian gets beaten up in his own country than why we all are so indifferent? That means no Indians Should go outside the country and if they are killed in other countries than they deserve to be?Just think about it.

    Our constitution has given this right to ourselves that anyone can visit any place in India and can work in any state. So rather than spreading hatred Mr Thackrey, You should fight for changing the constitution and all the problem will automatically solved without any violence.But you will not do it because this will not justify your vote bank politics.

    India Can not grow if the growth is not inclusive. So the Rich states like Maharashtra,Punjab, Gujarat Delhi needs to contribute towards this.This is also true that state government of few rich states has not been able to create more job opportunities for their own state people because of which the problem has aggravated.

    Rather than reacting to comments of Mr thackery, The Governments of UP and Bihar Should also think that Why this situation has created and what they are doing to stop migration from their state.They are more responsible for this situation.If Punajb and Haryana can become so developed just by capitalizing on the agriculture, why these two states cant do the same? The problem related to flood and drought can be understand but its high time to
    stop making these excuses and work towards solving the problems, Otherwise People of these states may have to face such agitation not only in Maharashtra but in whole Country.Beware Mr Nitish And UP Government!!!!!!Time to Work.
