Laine ready to apologise for remarks 

New Delhi: The Oxford University Press (OUP), publishers of Shivaji: Hindu King in Islamic India, informed the Bombay High Court on April 18 that US-based author and writer of the controversial book was ready to tender an apology for making derogatory remarks about the parentage of Maratha king Shivaji. The publishers promised to delete objectionable paragraphs from the book. The OUP further said that the objectionable portion was not based on historical research. The court was hearing a petition filed by the OUP and its Indian representative, Mazhar Khan, urging a direction to Pune police to quash the FIR registered against them. 

In a new Shivaji row, Shiv Sainiks attacked the home of the Chairman of the Maharashtra Rajya Sahitya Sanskruti Mandal, RR Borade on April 15 in Aurangabad. Shiv Sena supremo Bal Thackeray had said the preceding day that Mandal had published a book having highly objectionable references to Shivaji. Thackery said that the book written by Surendranath Sen and translated by Vijaya Kulkarni was so offensive that he could not read it. He said that most objectionable part about the book Marathyanchi Prashasan Vyavastha was that it was published by Sanskruti Mandal, an autonomous literary and cultural body of the state government.

BJP leader Gopinath Munde has said in a statement that his party would hold demonstrations all over the state to protest against the book. His colleague, Nitin Gadkari, threatened to file criminal cases against the state chief minister, chief secretary and Prof. Borade.
