BJP Condemns Pragya Thakur's Godse Remark
On Thursday, a day after she defined Mahatma Gandhi's assassin Nathuram Godse as a patriot in parliament, BJP MP Pragya Singh Thakur was suspended from the Defence ministry's Advisory Committee. Pragya Thakur, a repeat offender, did it before, but this time in Lok Sabha the offensive comments were made. "Not just calling Godse a deshbhakt (patriot), but we condemn even such thinking. The ideology of Mahatma Gandhi is now as relevant as it was before," said Defence Minister Rajnath Singh, today condemning his party MP in Lok Sabha.
