Bal Thackeray -- pictured in January 17, 1993 at his residence in Bandra -- warning of a violent backlash if Mumbai slumdwellers continued their four-day protest against the state government following the police killing of a dozen people. Thackeray, who was facing calls from opposition parties for his government to quit over the killings warned "just as there are limits to your patience, there are also limits to patience of Shiv Sena activists."
