For once I agree with old man Thackeray!
"Advani termed Jinnah secular. If Jinnah was secular, then why did Advani leave Sindh province in Pakistan and come to India? How can a person who demanded a separate state for Muslims be termed secular? Calling Jinnah secular is an insult to all those who shed their blood for India's independence. It is due to this ideological confusion that Hindus became frustrated and directionless and the impact was seen in the Lok Sabha elections," he said.
Thackeray said he could not understand why BJP leaders, who call themselves staunch nationalists, slip time and again."It seems there is a competition in BJP of showering flowers on Jinnah," he added.
