Mandsaur: Taking cognizance of
Maharashtra Navnirman Sena`s (MNS) attack on Samajwadi Party
legislator Abu Azmi for taking oath in Hindi, a local court
has issued notices against party chief Raj Thackeray and four
suspended party MLAs.

Chief Judicial Magistrate R R Badodiya issued notices
yesterday against Raj Thackeray and four other MLAs-- Shishir
Shinde, Ramesh Wanjale, Vasant Gite and Ram Kadam and asked
them to appear before the court on December 14 for hearing on
a petition filed by one Pukhraj Dashora.

Dashora in his petition said that he was hurt by the
reports of MNS attack on Azmi for taking oath in Hindi in the
Maharashtra Assembly and described it as a "gross insult to
the national language and also an attack on national
integration."

The Magistrate took cognizance of the petition under
section 153 (a) of the IPC for promoting enmity between
different groups on grounds of religion, language, place of
birth, residence and doing acts prejudicial to maintenance of
harmony.
