Pragya Singh Thakur’s praise of Mahatma Gandhi’s assassin Nathuram Godse has left the BJP squirming. Modi said he cannot forgive Pragya Singh Thakur for calling Nathuram Godse a “deshbhakt”. Though she apologised soon after, but the damage was done.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi Friday said he cannot forgive Pragya Singh Thakur for calling Mahatma Gandhi’s assassin Nathuram Godse a “deshbhakt” (patriot). In an interview ahead of the last phase of voting in the Lok Sabha elections, the Prime Minister said her comments were detrimental to society.
“The statements that have been made about Gandhiji or Nathuram Godse are very bad and very wrong for society. Although she has sought an apology, I would never be able to forgive her completely,” PM Modi said.
