A cake with the image of AIMIM leader Asaduddin Owaisi was cut during celebrations to mark the birthday of MNS chief Raj Thackeray in Mumbai on Tuesday, evoking a strong reaction from the Hyderabad-based party.

Raj was greeted by his supporters at his residence 'Krishna Kunj' at Dadar in Central Mumbai, where some supporters brought the cake with Owaisi's image on it and cut it.

The action drew condemnation from AIMIM, whose MLA Waris Pathan demanded action against those who cut the cake.

Raj had targeted Owaisi for triggering a row earlier this year by saying that he would not chant 'Bharat Mata ki Jai', even if a knife is put to his throat.

"Come to Maharashtra, I will put a knife to your throat," the MNS chief had said.
