The Shiv Sena on Monday condemned the special provision given to the Muslim community by the Uttarakhand Government and said that they would oppose this in Parliament as the Congress has been following this ‘appeasement policy’ from quite a long time. “This is an absolutely wrong move.

Today one state is coming with such a thing, tomorrow other states will follow and this is a complete appeasement policy towards Muslim which the Congress has been doing from the last sixty years,” said Shiv Sena leader Manisha Kayande. The Uttarakhand Cabinet has decided to give a 90-minute break to the Muslim employees for Friday prayers.
