  1. 1. Biography of ‘Balasaheb Thackeray’ The Godfather !
  2. 2. Bal Keshav Thackeray born 23 January 1927, popularly known as Balasaheb Thackeray, is the founder and chief of the ShivSena . Balasaheb began his career in the early 1950s as a cartoonist for the Free Press Journal in Mumbai (Bombay). His cartoons also appeared in the Japanese daily newspaper Asahi Shimbun and in the Sunday edition of The New York Times. In the 1960s he became increasingly involved in politics.
  3. 3. He developed a strong regional following through his work for a weekly Marathi-language journal called Marmik, which he published with his brother and which polemicized against the influence of “outsiders” in Maharashtra. On 19th June 1966 he founded the Shiv Sena.
  4. 4. Although Thackeray never held an official post or ran for elective office, for years he was generally regarded as the most powerful man in Maharashtra. He was often referred to as the “godfather of Maharashtra” or, as his legion of devout followers called him, Hindu Hridaysamrat (“Emperor of the Hindu Heart”). His party advocated the end of India’s constitutional status as a secular state and the adoption of Hinduism as the country’s official religion. Such was Thackeray’s power that when the Shiv Sena gained political control of Maharashtra in the 1990s, he had Bombay renamed Mumbai for the goddess Mumbadevi—the name by which the city is known in the Marathi language—and when Thackeray was satirized by novelist Salman Rushdie in The Moor’s Last Sigh (1995), the book was immediately banned in Maharashtra. ,
  5. 5. Over the years, Thackeray had been accused of inciting violent conflicts between Hindus and Muslims. The most notorious incident came in 1992–93, when nearly 1,000 people were killed during several weeks of anti-Muslim rioting in Mumbai. Despite having been known to speak admiringly of Adolf Hitler, Thackeray insisted that he was “not against each and every” Muslim. “But those Muslims who reside in this country but do not go by the laws of the land,” he once declared in an interview, “I consider such people traitors.”
  6. 6. Amid allegations that it employed illegal and sometimes violent tactics, Thackeray’s party grew into a major political force in Maharashtra. In alliance with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), the Shiv Sena won 138 out of 288 seats in the state’s assembly in 1995—enough to form a coalition government. The Natural Alliance
  7. 7. In power Thackeray continued to be a lightning rod for controversy. His supporters had destroyed the 16th-century Babri Masjid (“Mosque of Bābur”) in Ayodhya, Uttar Pradesh, in 1992, and in 2000 he was arrested on charges of having incited the deadly 1992–93 riots in Mumbai. Though Thackeray never denied the charges, they were dismissed after a magistrate ruled that the statute of limitations on the case had run out.
  8. 8. An unexpected electoral setback for the BJP–Shiv Sena alliance in 2004, when it lost control of the Maharashtra state government, led to speculation about who might eventually succeed the aging Shiv Sena leader. His nephew Raj Thackeray—who was responsible for compiling Bal Keshav Thackeray: A Photobiography (2005), which commemorates his uncle’s career—had been mentioned as a possibility. However, Bal’s son Uddhav appeared to be the likely successor, having already assumed the post of executive president of the Shiv Sena in 2004. Raj Thackeray subsequently left the party and in 2006 formed the rival Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (“Maharashtra Reconstruction Army”) party.
  9. 9. Earlier in the day, the Shiv Sena assured that their ailing leader Bal Thackeray was fighting like a "warrior" and his health was "improving". In a statement, the party mouthpiece Saamna had said: "Millions of Shiv Sainiks have been praying for his recovery. It is because of their devotion and prayers that the Sena chief's health has improved. Doctors have said his heart and pulse beats have improved."A team of doctors from Lilavati Hospital, comprising Jaleel Parker, Prakash Jiyandani, Samad Ansari, assisted by Shiv Sena legislator Deepak Sawant, reportedly strived hard to save Thackeray.An ICU was created at Matoshri, the Thackeray residence in Bandra east, with all emergency equipment and medical and para-medical staff on duty round-the-clock.
  10. 10. Shiv Sena executive president Uddhav Thackeray had convened a meeting of party corporators in the Brihan Mumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) later Saturday to apprise them of the Sena chief's health.The Mumbai Police have deployed tight security around Matoshri and Bandra east areas to prevent any untoward incident. The supreme Died at the age of 86 on 17 November 2012. More than seven lakh people crowded at his funeral.
