Shiv Sena has advocated for family planning for Muslims and Christians in the country.
In an editorial in its mouthpiece Saamana, the party came out strongly in favor of the leader of Hindu Mahasabha Sadhvi Thakur.
It said that her remark was merely an emotional outburst. Sena said that though Sadhvi Thakur did not do anything wrong by saying that Muslims and Christians should be forcibly sterilised, she should have used the word family planning instead of sterilisation.
