Shiv Sena activists on Monday stormed the BCCI office in Mumbai ahead of a scheduled meeting between Pakistan Cricket Board chief Shaharyar Khan and the Indian board’s new president Shashank Manohar.

Following the incident, ANI reported that the talks between the two cricket bosses had been cancelled.

The Sena activists barged into the Board of Control for Cricket in India office chanting slogans against Khan and “gheraoed” Manohar’s desk saying they will not allow any cricketing ties with the neighbouring country. They also reportedly shouted anti-Pakistan slogans.

Earlier this month, Sena workers had thrown ink on Observer Research foundation’s chairperson and former BJP leader Sudheendra Kulkarni who had organised the book launch of former Pakistan foreign minister Mahmud Khurshid Kasuri and stopped famous Ghazal singer Ghulam Ali from performing in Mumbai.

Should authorities adapt strict measures against such kind of protests staged by Shiv Sena workers or they fear taking action against them?
