Mumbai, April 15. The controversy over loudspeakers on mosques in Maharashtra does not seem to be stopping. Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray had recently warned that if loudspeakers are not removed from mosques before Eid, then we will also start reciting Hanuman Chalisa from loudspeakers. Now the Islamic organization PFI (Popular Front of India) has reacted to this warning of Raj Thackeray. PFI President Matin Shekhani has said that if you tease us, we will not leave.
