New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi Friday slammed BJP’s Bhopal candidate Pragya Singh Thakur for insulting Mahatma Gandhi and he will never be able to forgive.
Pragya while reacting to actor Kamal Haasan’s remark that Nathuram Godse was a terrorist. “He was, he is and he will remain a true patriot,” she said on Thursday during a rally in Madhya Pradesh. Her remark created a firestorm on social media and amongst the opposition. Though she later apologised for her statement, saying she respected Gandhi and his work for the country cannot be forgotten.
On Saturday, Kailash Satyarthi, Nobel laureate, slammed Thakur and said, Godse killed Gandhi’s body, people like Pragya killing soul of india. Stressing that Mahatma Gandhi is above power and politics, Nobel said people like Pragya Singh Thakur are killing the soul of India and the BJP should expel her from the party.
“Godse had killed Gandhi’s body, but people like Pragya are killing the soul, non-violence, peace, tolerance and the soul of India. Gandhi is above all power and politics.”
“The BJP leadership should forego its interest of any small benefit and immediately take her out of the party in compliance with the Raj dharma,” Satyarthi, a Nobel Peace Prize Winner, tweeted.
