During the first Azaan of the day, when loudspeakers were used, MNS workers played Hanuman Chalisa.
“We are ready to face action but action must be taken against them also for playing loudspeakers illegally,” said Pappu Kadam, a MNS leader from Thane, who played Hanuman Chalisa in Indiranagar.
Massive security arrangements were in place across the state.

Top police officials, including Mumbai Police Commissioner Sanjay Pandey himself, were in the field overseeing the security arrangements.
Meanwhile, the Mumbai Police has issued a notice to Raj Thackeray under Section 149 of CrPC over his ultimatum to play Hanuman Chalisa in front of mosques if loudspeakers are not removed from mosques
