Congress has always abused ‘Patriots’, says BJP MP Pragya Thakur on Nathuram Godse


PTI, Jan 13, 2021, 7:03 PM IST

BJP MP from Bhopal Pragya Singh Thakur has again referred to Mahatma Gandhi’s assassin Nathuram Godse as a “patriot” while attacking the Congress. Thakur, an accused in the the 2008 Malegaon blast case, on Tuesday evening alleged that the Congress has always abused patriots.

Her comment came in the wake of Congress leader Digvijaya Singh’s remark terming Godse as the “first terrorist”. The Congress has always abused patriots…termed them as ‘saffron terrorists’. Nothing is more vile than this and I dont want to say anything more on the issue, Thakur told reporters here when asked about Singh’s remark on Godse.

In May 2019, during the Lok Sabha polls, Thakur had kicked up a huge row by calling Godse a patriot, but apologised for it later and withdrew the statement. In November 2019, the BJP MP had tendered an apology in the Lok Sabha for making controversial comments on Godse in the Lower House of Parliament.

Last Sunday, the Hindu Mahasabha opened a study centre named after Godse in Gwalior, but closed it two days later following an intervention by the district administration. The BJP MP arrived in Ujjain to take part in an ABVP (Akhil Bhartiya Vidyarthi Parishad) programme

Thakur praised the BJP government in Madhya Pradesh for dealing strictly with stone-pelters who targetted rallies taken out for creating awareness about the upcoming Ram temple in Ayodhya.
