Unfazed by the attack on his house by Shiv Sangram activists, Loksatta editor Kumar Ketkar on Thursday said he stood by the opinion in his editorial about the statue of the Maratha warrior Chhatrapati Shivaji.
Speaking to the media after the attack, Ketkar said "the people who attacked me must not have read the editorial. I never said anything denigrating to Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj and I stand by my opinion on the proposed statue."
Ketkar also said he knew Shiv Sangram president Vinayak Mete and had nothing against him.
