Hindu fundamentalist politician Bal Thackeray, the founder of the right-wing Shiv Sena party, has died in Mumbai at the age of 86.

Thackeray was blamed for inciting tensions between Hindu and Muslim communities during the 1993 Mumbai riots in which about 900 people died.

His fiery rhetoric made him one of India's most controversial politicians.

Shiv Sena was founded to keep Indian migrants out of Maharashtra state and to halt the spread of Islam.
