BJP MP from Bhopal Pragya Singh Thakur has called Nathuram Godse a patriot in the Parliament table. Pragya Singh Thakur gave this statement during a debate in Lok Sabha on Wednesday.
Actually, DMK MP A Raja was giving his opinion on SPG amendment bill in Lok Sabha. During this, A. Raja referred to a statement of Godse in which Godse said that why he had killed Mahatma Gandhi. While A. Raja was speaking, Pragya Thakur interrupted in the middle and said that you cannot give an example of a patriot. There was a ruckus in the Lok Sabha after his statement. However, Pragya Singh Thakur’s statement has been removed from the Lok Sabha records.
Meanwhile, BJP spokesperson GVL Narasimha Rao told that the party can take action on Pragya Thakur. After the controversy over the statement, when Pragya Singh Thakur was questioned by the reporters, he said that I will answer tomorrow.
This is not the first time that Pragya Singh Thakur has described Nathuram Godse as a patriot. Even during the Lok Sabha elections, he called Nathuram Godse a patriot. Pragya Singh Thakur said that Nathuram Godse was a patriot, and always will be. People who call him a terrorist should look into his own religion. BJP condemned his statement and asked for public apology.
PM Modi said – I will not be able to forgive
PM Modi also expressed displeasure over Pragya Singh Thakur’s statement . He has said that whatever has been done about Mahatma Gandhi and Nathuram Godse, they are terrible. These things are completely disgusting, such things do not work inside a civilized society. PM Modi said that even though he (Sadhvi Pragya) has apologized in this matter, I will never be able to forgive him from my heart.
Pragya Singh Thakur is an accused in the 2008 Malegaon blast case and is out on bail. This matter is still going on in the court. In Bhopal, Pragya Thakur defeated Congress leader Digvijay Singh.
