‘Take decision on removing loudspeakers of mosques’

India: Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray on Saturday (April 2, 2022) said that he is not against prayers but the government should take a decision on removing mosque loudspeakers.

The estranged cousin of Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray asked the state government to remove loudspeakers or else he will put loudspeakers in front of the mosque and play Hanuman Chalisa.

“I am not against prayers, but the government should take a decision on removing mosque loudspeakers. I am warning now…,” Raj Thackeray said at a rally at Shivaji Park in Mumbai.

“Why loudspeakers in mosques are played at such high volume? If this is not stopped, there will be speakers outside mosques playing Hanuman Chalisa at higher volume,” he added.

Raj Thackeray also appealed to Prime Minister Narendra Modi to raid the Madarasas at the Muslim shanties and claimed that Pakistani supporters are residing in these shanties.
