In a hard-hitting editorial, the party mouthpiece Saamana said that with people like Kulkarni in India, Pakistan “need not send those like ( 26/11 attacker) Ajmal Kasab”.

This comes a day after alleged Shiv Sena workers smeared Kulkarni’s face with black ink for refusing to back down from organising former Pakistan foreign minister Khurshid Mahmud Kasuri’s book launch.

“Kulkarni was taught a lesson for rolling out a red carpet welcome for Kasuri. After he was attacked with ink, the entire nation said patriotic Mumbaikars had taught Kulkarni a good lesson,” Saamana said.

The editorial also reiterated the Sena’s stand that until Pakistan stopped firing across the border, the party will continue boycotting any artist or author who is from the county.

Kulkarni, who was a top aide of LK Advani, was also blamed for the former deputy prime minister’s controversial remarks on Mohammad Ali Jinnah and for the 2008 cash-for-votes scandal.

Saamana also claimed that before Kasuri’s book launch, both Kulkarni and Nehru Centre’s director Satish Sahni met Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray at his residence Matoshri and pleaded with him to withdraw the threat.

Despite the threats and the ink attack on Kulkarni, Kasuri’s book launch went ahead as per schedule. The former BJP ideologue attended a press conference with the ink still on his face prompting Saamana to call him “Kaltonde Kulkarni” or “black-faced Kulkarni.”
