Sanjay Raut said, “Karachi Bakery and Karachi Sweets have been in Mumbai for 60 years. They have nothing to do with Pakistan. It is meaningless to demand change of his name. He said that it is not the official stand of Shiv Sena to demand change of name of the shop.
Shiv Sena leader threatened to change name
A video of Shiv Sena leader Nandgaonkar is becoming quite viral on social media, in which he is asking the owner of Karachi Sweets Shop to remove the word ‘Karachi’ from the name of the shop. Threatening the owner of the Bandra West-based Karachi Sweets, Nandgaonkar said that he would have to change the name of the shop. Nandgaonkar had said, ‘The name Karachi is associated with Pakistan and it will not be used in Mumbai. Pakistan is a country full of terrorists. He said that he is ready to give him time, but he will have to change the name as soon as possible.
The shop owner said, this is the name in the family
The owner of the shop says that his family has this name because his ancestors were from Karachi. After the video went viral, people started criticizing the Shiv Sena leader.
Sanjay Nirupam asked Uddhav to take action
Congress leader Sanjay Nirupam termed the Shiv Sena worker as ‘stupid’ and said that Chinese hotels in India have nothing to do with China, similarly Karachi Sweets of Bandra has no connection with Pakistan. He has also asked Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray to take necessary action in the case. Seeing the matter growing, the Shiv Sena has also started avoiding this act of party worker.
