‘Our effort will be to reach an arrangement to keep the wagh-nakh permanently in India’

“The waagh-nakh is not just any object, it is an article of faith for us. Shivaji Maharaj was born at a time when Hind swaraj was in danger, our Hindavi samaj was in danger. It was his bravery, statesmanship, and organisational ability that saved us and our society,” said Munganatiwar

The negotiations leading to the MoU lasted two years and the waagh-nakh is expected to reach India only in February next year. “Our entire focus has been to get the waagh-nakh back home so that the people of India can see it for themselves. Afzal Khan came with an army of lakhs of people, and dreams of decimating us, but it was Shivaji instead who taught him a lesson. Shivaji’s name alone is enough to bring a comatose man back to consciousness,” he extolled (HT PHOTO)

UK court suspends discharge of Pramod Mittal’s bankruptcy

Pramod Mittal, brother of steel tycoon Lakshmi Mittal, has had the discharge of his bankruptcy suspended by the high court in London. Mittal was adjudged bankrupt in 2020 on a petition by Moorgate Industries after he failed to pay £140m. The trustee appointed to oversee the bankruptcy alleged that Mittal failed to cooperate in sharing crucial information and was evasive about his assets and liabilities.
