After a Congress MLA threatened to "burn'' BJP MP Pragya Thakur for her remarks praising Nathuram Godse, she hit back on Saturday, saying Congressmen have "experience" of burning people during the 1984 anti-Sikh riots.

Pragya Thakur is in the middle of a row over her remark about Godse, Mahatma Gandhi's assassin, during a discussion in the Lok Sabha on November 27 which left the BJP red-faced.

The video of the speech went viral, forcing the BJP leader to apologise.

Pragya Thakur tweeted on Saturday, "Congressmen have old experience of burning people, from the Sikhs in 1984 to Naina Sahni (victim of 1995 'tandoor' murder in Delhi) in the tandoor. @RahulGandhi termed (me) terrorist and his MLA Govardhan Dangi will burn me. So, I am reaching Biaora at his residence in Multanpura at 4 pm on December 8, 2019. Burn me."
