Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray condemned the attack on Lt Gen (retd) K S Brar and said it was the responsibility of the Indian government to protect the General.
"If Lt Gen Brar is attacked again, it will strengthen the Khalistani "snakes", Thackeray said in an editorial in party mouthpiece 'Saamana' on Wednesday.
Brar, 78, was attacked by some men, suspected to be Khalistan sympathisers, with knives while he was leaving a hotel in London with his wife. He had said that it was an attempt to assassinate him by "pro-Khalistan elements" for his role in the 1984 "Operation Bluestar".
