Raj Thackeray admires Hitler

June 14, 2005 21:33 IST

Like uncle, like nephew. This seems to be the case with Shiv Sena leader Raj Thackeray, when it comes to his fascination for German dictator Adolf Hitler.

While Bal Thackeray is on record saying that he is a fan of Hitler, Raj, who celebrated his 37th birthday on Monday, said that when it comes to organisational skills, there are a few who can rival the Nazi dictator's abilities.

"Leave aside his negative aspects like the barbaric annihilation of millions of Jews. There are several other things about Hitler, which any leader would envy," Raj told reporters at his Dadar residence when asked if he too was a fan of Hitler like his uncle.

"Hitler had everything. The one thing he did not have was the ambition to conquer the world," Raj said, adding, "you can draw whatever conclusions you want from my remarks."
