The city of Mumbai has always reeled under bullying practices of Raj Thackeray’s Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS). The latest case being how they threatened to stall the release of director Karan Johar’s movie Ae Dil Hai Mushkil for featuring Pakistani actor Fawad Khan on the grounds of showing Nationalism.

While many believe that it is patriotism that drives MNS cadres to show dissent, in a shocking video, India Today exposes how Raj Thackeray’s MNS is unfurling its Gunda Raj in the state just because of driven ideologies.

In the video, it can be seen that one of the MNS leaders from Kurla, Md Athar Shah discloses how they break a deal with the police to stage protests and spread violence. He agreed that he let loose the rampage by other MNS workers for Rs 25 lakh. “If you go to somebody else, they will charge Rs 50 lakh or more. We will organise it for Rs 25 lakh,” Shah tells India Today journalists.

He also boasted to the journalists that a person who has never been named in a criminal case is not an MNS worker.

He also admitted that their vandalisms on streets are motivated by “pure commerce”.

India Today’s special investigation team met Deepak Chavan, the party’s vice-president of Mumbai’s Malad-Malwani ward, with a proposal to hold demonstrations over child labour.

Without delay, Chavan agreed to stage the agitation and asked for money.

Arif Shamim Sheikh, an MNS leader from Mahim, also termed criminal cases a hallmark of Raj Thackeray’s outfit.
