Mumbai: The Shiv Sena on Thursday said that since every person who arrives here from Pakistan is “a messenger of peace”, so the three terrorists who have reportedly sneaked into the country should also be treated similarly.

According to recent intelligence reports, three Pakistani terrorists have sneaked into Mumbai and preparing to carry out attacks similar to 26/11 here.


The central government has warned Maharashtra and a red alert has been sounded for the terrorist trio who could strike in the crowded festivals like the ongoing Navratri or the forthcoming Diwali, the Shiv Sena said in an edit in the party mouthpiece Saamana today.

However, it assured that people of the state have no cause for worry as a new “Pakistan-loving ambassador of peace” has taken over responsibility to protect the nation from them, referring to its latest bete-noir, Sudheendra Kulkarni, chairman of think-tank, Observer Research Foundation (ORF).

“Since every person who arrives here from Pakistan is ‘a messenger of peace’, these three terrorists must also be treated similarly. We lay out the red carpet for them and accord them highest security,” the Sena sarcastically demanded.

It warned that in case any one them happened to be a “human bomb” and exploded, taking hundreds of innocent lives, nobody should term it as an attempt to spoil cultural and political ties between the two countries (India-Pakistan).

“In the past, such hullaballoo has brought a bad name not only to Maharashtra but entire India… We should adopt ‘a spirit of sacrifice and tolerance’ towards these three terrorists and welcome their attacks with a smile,” the edit said, referring to the debates in the past few days.

In order to ensure peace with Pakistan, Indians should chant ‘Om Shanti Om,‘ and follow the principles of ‘Atithi Devo Bhava’ to welcome our own death with folded hands, as our prime duty, the party urged.

“So, the state government must give a warm welcome to these sneaky terrorists – sorry, ambassadors of peace – ensure no stone left upturned in treating them well as it could spoil the image of Maharashtra… never mind if our nationalistic sentiments go for a toss,” the edit concluded.

While everyone is making their big fat Indian wedding dreams come true, they are also adding their carbon footprint and undue energy consumption. Modern couples are now looking for ways to have a wedding with a sustainably conscious mindset. It's become about incorporating less waste, locally sourced and seasonal food, natural materials over the use of plastic. Mindful wedding planning and decor includes the use of recycled paper and goods along with eco-friendly venue needs. Check out this quick guide to achieve a sustainably conscious wedding without compromising on luxury:

Choose locally sourced material to uplift artisans

With the use of locally sourced materials and local artisans coming into play, the wedding instantly becomes sustainable. Include the work of local vendors ensure minimal packaging requirements, thus saving on unnecessary plastic and lamination. It also decreases the need for transporting elements from other cities and hence lowers the carbon footprint. For instance, at one of our weddings, we made use of sand art for a setup in Jodhpur. This helped promote local work while also being environmentally friendly with zero wastage of other materials. In another instance from Rajasthan, the traditional glass-blown technique was used to build decor items while giving a cultural touch to the destination wedding.
