History

Years back, the voices that had come together to form a united Maharashtra, had scattered as soon as Maharashtra state was established. During this time, 105 locals were martyred in the struggle to get Mumbai to be a part of Maharashtra. But eventually, people from other states kept on migrating, creating discord and disrespecting the community and culture of the locals, therefore creating an environment of lawlessness in the state. This evoked Prabhodhankar Thackeray’s son, Bal Thackeray to start ‘Marmik’, a political weekly with cartoons and sketches which spoke in detail of the grave injustice towards the people. But the thought didn’t end just there. He wanted to take the anger against this inequality, especially the outrage coming from the youth, to do something against the abuse towards the local people of the state. After seeing the tremendous support towards his thoughts in the weekly, he decided to establish Shivsena on 19th June 1966, to bring the people together, to fight against the oppression of the Marathi people.

Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj became the idol for the vision of Shivsena, who was also a devotee of Goddess Bhawani Mata. Balasaheb, who was a devotee of the Goddess himself, decided that her ‘vahan’(vehicle) – the tiger would become the party symbol. On 30th October 1966, Shivsena’s first rally was held at Shivtirth and was received well by the people of Mumbai and Maharashtra as they turned up in huge numbers. Shivsena completed 50 years as the voice of Hindutva and the beacon of hope for the common Marathi man, and will continue to make its place in the hearts and lives of the common Marathi man, under the leadership of Shivsena President Uddhavsaheb Thackeray and Aaditya Thackeray.
