MUMBAI: NCP today hit out at Shiv Sena over its "anti-Muslim rant" amid the controversy regarding the ban on sale of meat during the Jain fasting period of Paryushan, and alleged that the saffron party's politics was based on the hatred of the community.    

"Muslims have never demanded that their religion and lifestyle be imposed on others. Shiv Sena's anti-Muslim rant in the editorial in its mouthpiece 'Saamana' proves that spreading hatred of Muslims is the base of its politics," NCP spokesperson Nawab Malik said here.      

Since 2004 the slaughterhouses were shut down for two days during the Paryushan, he said.            

Malik also clarified that the NCP-controlled civic body in Navi Mumbai had only said that those who wanted to keep slaughterhouses closed during the period could do so.        

The Saamana editorial today said, "Until now, only fanatic Muslims used to bully people in the name of religion. If the Jains too are going the way of Muslims, then God save them."
