Mumbai’s Iconic Karachi Bakery Shuts Down; MNS Leader Claims Credit

Mumbai: Mumbai’s iconic Karachi bakery on Thursday pulled down its shutter due to losses in business. Last month, the bakery got embroiled in a controversy after a section of Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) and Shiv Sena workers staged a demonstration, objecting to its “Pakistani name”.

In fact, MNS leader Haji Saif Shaikh, who led a protest to Karachi Bakery demanding to change the name, has claimed responsibility for the shutdown of an almost 70-year-old bakery.

Shaikh in a tweet wrote, “After a massive protest on Karachi Bakery for its name #Karachi led by Vice President of MNS – @mnshajisaif Karachi bakery finally closes its only shop in Mumbai”.

But soon after Shaikh’s tweet, MNS gave an official statement saying the party does not stand with Shaikh. MNS officially said, “This is not at all the official stand of MNS. So, all please take note of it.” Another MNS leader Sandeep Deshpande said, “Please note this is not the official stand of MNS”.

Additionally, the owner of the oldest Mumbai baker, Rameshwar Waghmare also said that “changing the name of the bakery” was not the reason for the shutdown. He added that they shut the shop because their old lease agreement lapsed. He said that the landlord demanded a higher sum of rent and which they couldn’t pay as the pandemic terribly hit their business.
