Mumbai: Claiming that Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray has received death threats, a party leader on Wednesday May 11  warned that even if his hair is touched, “entire Maharashtra will burn”.

MNS leader Bala Nandgaonkar met Home Minister Dilip Walse-Patil and apprised him of the alleged threats — coming reportedly from some Muslim organisations — being received by Raj Thackeray and himself.

A letter said to be penned in Urdu was received at the MNS office and another in Hindi by Nandgaonkar, after which he warned that “even if one hair on Raj Thackeray is touched, the entire Maharashtra will go up in flames”.

He claimed that after listening to him, Walse-Patil spoke with the Commissioner of Police, Sanjay Pandey, and assured a probe.

Nandgaonkar said the antecedents of the purported letter, who wrote it or when, are not known, but repeated the dire consequences if the MNS chief is touched.

He added that the MNS has been demanding security for Raj Thackeray and his family and both the Centre and the Maha Vikas Aghadi government in Maharashtra must take note of it.

The MNS has launched a state-wide movement to remove all loudspeakers from mosques, threatening to play ‘Hanuman Chalisa’ opposite those that flout laws and relay ‘azaan’ on public address systems, even as the MVA launched a crackdown against the MNS activists.

In retaliation, Raj Thackeray on Tuesday flayed the MVA for gunning for his men and also warned his estranged cousin and Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray that governments come and go and nobody remains in power forever.

Raj Thackeray has also announced plans to go to Ayodhya where he is meeting stiff opposition from a BJP MP and the Mahants, who are demanding an apology for the treatment meted out by MNS to north Indians in 2008.
