The VHP has criticised MNS president Raj Thackeray for his stance against Hindi, saying he is indulging in vote bank politics and dividing the country. "It is vote bank politics and Raj will not succeed in dividing the country by opposing Hindi. Those humiliating the lingua franca in Maharashtra should be punished,'' VHP international president Ashok Singhal said on Sunday. "Humiliating Hindi is treason and such treacherous persons should be given the hardest punishment,'' Singhal said, referring to the incident in Maharashtra legislative assembly where the newly elected members of the MNS disrupted oath-taking in Hindi.

Singhal said Raj had not only insulted Hindi but also the 'rashtrabhasha'. He is a small entity and is trying to spread hatred among people, Singhal added. Singhal expressed anger at the Deoband resolution banning singing of Vande Mataram,which he said was passed in the presence of union home minister P Chidambaram.

Singhal said China was waging a proxy war against India by providing firearms to Maoists in the country. He felt the government should not hesitate in deploying the army and air force against anti-national forces. "It's high time the government crushed the Naxal movement. By not taking action, it is encouraging them,'' Singhal said.

He also demanded making public the assets of Trimala Tirupati Deosthan. "The public wants to know what are the assets of the Balaji temple , jewellery held by the Tirupati Deosthan and whether it has been properly recorded,'' he said.
