Kabhi nahee.. He was a warlord, a gangster, a thug. He had Bombay hostage and created nothing but menace. He should have been arrested long time back for Bombay riots and hung long time back. May he always burn in Hell

No not at all . He was not a national hero, never he had gone out of maharashtra,nor having any government post, ministery etc. This is foolish to give him salute. This decision of salute is wrong by the government.

I think state level funeral to be given to people who had done country any pride, Politicians are an question mark. Although Thackerey was popular, But he worked more on regional levels & though of people at regions. Inventing a though where countrymen was divided is not doing good for country. Hence my opinion remains negative on him

NO. Not at all. he might be a favorite figure amongst the mass. But we must not forget he was a politician who favoured just one par of mass. Neither he did anything for the country. And respecting his body with our National Flag is not at all done.

No, he did not deserve it! What did he do except create hatred and incite violence! He thought he was the ruler of Bombay (Mumbai)!
