In the wake of the terror attack on Amarnath Yatra pilgrims that led to the death of 7 people and injury of 19 others, Shiv Sena president Uddhav Thackeray took a dig at the BJP saying that 'Gau Rakshaks' should be sent to face terrorists in Kashmir.

"The issue of 'gau rakshaks' is raging today. Why don't you send these cow vigilantes to face terrorists?" Thackeray said on Tuesday, while addressing representatives of various Ganesh Mandals ahead of the upcoming festival.

A bus carrying Amarnath Yatra pilgrims on their way returning from the shrine was attacked by militants which resulted in the death of 7 people. Due to the quick thinking of the bus driver Saleem, he kept the doors locked and drove on despite firing saving the lives of the other pilgrims on board.

"They (the BJP) used to say that do not bring sports, culture etc. in the political issues. Today, religion and politics came together in the form of the terror attack. Should we understand that none of those terrorists would have been alive today if they had the cow meat in their bags than weapons?" he said, slamming the recent trend of mob lynching.

Launching another attack on BJP, regarding noise regulations during festivals, Thackeray said, "If the BJP government can talk to separatists in the Kashmir Valley to resolve their issues, they can certainly talk with those wishing to celebrate the Ganesh festival amidst fanfare."

The senior leader has also requested the Devendra Fadnavis government in Maharashtra to bring out an ordinance against the restrictions applied by the Bombay High Court on permissible noise levels during festivals.
