Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) members manhandled state Samajwadi Party chief Abu Asim Azmi inside the assembly. This shocking incident took on when Azmi began taking his oath in Hindi, leading to the suspension of four MNS legislators who led the attack for four years.
A severe penalty which has no precedent in the annals of the Maharashtra legislature. Minister for legislative affairs Harshavardhan Patil (Congress) moved the resolution which was passed by a majority vote.

Bollywood Actress & Samajwadi Party chief Abu Asim Azmi’s daughter in law Ayesha Takia lashes out at Raj Thackeray:
Deeply hurt and shocked by the aggressive behavior of MNS with Abu Azmi, daughter-in-law Ayesha Takia Azmi lashed out on MNS whole and soul Raj Thackeray and his party. “I am shocked and disgusted by the behaviour of Raj Thackeray and his people. The way they behaved with Abu Azmi during today’s swearing in was really unbelievable and disgusting. How can we ever feel safe in a place where gundas are allowed to behave as they want?”. Says Ayesha.
Reacting on the restriction on language she says, “I love this city and we all do so how does it matter if we say Bombay or Mumbai? My grandfather was Marathi and my granny is British, my father Gujrati and my husband Muslim. I have always been cosmopolitan and don’t see why in this day and age it matters who belongs to what language.”
Criticizing language war Ayesha said, “Hindi Marathi English and any of our languages are allowed while taking the oath. We live in love and respect each other irrespective of cast and language. So why are gundas like Raj Thackeray and others allowed to break and kill our peace?”
Being a responsible citizen she requests chief minister and other parties to take action again this. “Our other respected leaders including the chief minister and other parties must unite and kick out Raj Thackeray and MNS. Law must take action. If action isn’t taken then this will be the beginning of breaking the peace!” She signs off.
