Shiv Sena Executive President Uddhav Thackeray on Wednesday hit out at the "Jamiat-Ulema-e-Hind" for issuing fatwa against singing Vande Mataram saying that those who oppose the national song should go to Pakistan.

In a statement issued , Thackeray observed that the fatwa was issued in the presence of union Home Minister P Chidambaram which shows that the Centre has indulged into minority appeasement.

"If anti-national fatwas are issued in the presence of the union home minister then there is no future for this country. It looks like the Centre has a policy of Muslim appeasement for votes," The Sena leader alleged.

He said Vande Mataram is not just two words but a flame to invoke nationalism. "If you don't want to salute the motherland, then whom do you salute? What is the shame in saluting Bharatmata? Those who don't want to salute Bharatmata should go to Pakistan, Bangladesh. There is no place for such traitors in India," Thackeray said.

He asked Shiv Sainiks to put up "Vande Mataram" boards all over Maharashtra adding that such fatwas create tensions between Hindus and Muslims. PTI
