MNS chief Raj Thackeray said that state Home Minister Anil Deshmukh should resign in the wake of allegations levelled by former Mumbai Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh and a thorough probe should be done into the matter."Anil Deshmukh should resign immediately. The main issue is that of an explosive-laden vehicle being found near the residence of an industrialist. I request the Central Government to intervene. The State government cannot investigate this matter," said Raj Thackeray.
Mumbai's Karachi Bakery shut shop months after being attacked by Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) over its name. MNS leader Haji Saif Shaikh had sent a legal notice in Nov 2020 to owner of the Bakery. Shaikh had asked him to remove ‘Karachi’ from the name. MNS leaders also protested in front of the shop in Bandra in November. “Patriots will never buy anything when they see the name ‘Karachi’. We made it clear that we only had problem with the name not the bakery,” said Shaikh. A Twitter handle, MNCDF Bombay, refuted the MNS Haji Saif Shaikh’s claim. The handle said that Karachi bakery shut its store due to lack of business. Karachi Bakery, a Hyderabad-based chain, is run by a Sindhi Hindu migrant family. They family moved to India after experiencing violence by pro-Pakistan elements. The bakery has shops across several cities including Delhi, Chennai, Bengaluru etc. Watch the full video for more.

Mumbai's famous Karachi bakery, which received threats from MNS (Maharashtra Navnirman Sena) over its name being after a Pakistan city, has been closed, and new shop has opened at the place. In November last year, the chain had received a legal notice by MNS leader Haji Saif Shaikh, who also took the credit on Twitter after the shop was shut. The leader, however, denied any pressure from MNS behind the closing of the shop, and said the bakery chain was closed possibly due to lack of business as ordinary citizens prefer not to buy from shops named after Pakistani cities.
