English News‘Pragya Thakur killed Mahatma Gandhi’s soul’, says Nobel laureate Kailash Satyarthi

Nobel laureate Kailash Satyarthi on Saturday lashed out at BJP’s candidiate for the Bhopal Lok Sabha seat Pragya Singh Thakur for her comments that Mahatma Gandhi’s assassin Nathuram Godse, was a patriot.

The child rights activist took to Twitter to warn the country that comments by people like Pragya Thakur, an accused in the Malegaon blasts, were “killing the soul of India”.

“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 must overcome the temptations for small gains and immediately remove them from the party and follow raj dharma,” Satyarthi tweeted in Hindi.

Her comments triggered a firestorm of condemnation, forcing her to eventually apologise. On Friday, BJP president Amit Shah asked Pragya Thakur for an explanation within 10 days.

Union minister Ananth Kumar Hegde, and Nalin Kumar Kateel, a BJP MP from Karnataka have also been similar served show cause notices.
