Was, is and will be a deshbhakt : Pragya Thakur s praise for Nathuram Godse

BJP s Pragya Singh Thakur on Thursday stoked yet another controversy by terming Nathuram Godse, the man who assassinated Mahatma Gandhi, as a deshbhakt (patriot). Nathuram Godse was a deshbhakt , is a deshbhakt and will remain a deshbhakt , Pragya said when questioned about actor-turned-politician Kamal Haasan s remark that India s first terrorist was a Hindu, referring to Godse.The BJP candidate from Bhopal Lok Sabha seat claimed that comments like these by Haasan will dent his electoral prospects. People calling him a terrorist should instead look within, such people will be given a befitting reply in these elections, she said.Haasan, the chief of political outfit Makkal Needhi Maiam, had said, I am not saying this because many Muslims are here. I am saying this in front of Mahatma Gandhi s statue. The first terrorist in independent India is a Hindu, his name is Nathuram Godse. Pragya Singh Thakur, an accused in the Malegaon blast case, is not new to controversial remarks. .
