Bharatiya Janata Party MP Pragya Thakur on Wednesday referred to Mahatma Gandhi’s assassin Nathuram Godse as a patriot during a debate in the Lok Sabha, PTI reported.

“You cannot give the example of ‘deshbhakts [patriots]’,” she interjected when Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam MP A Raja mentioned Godse during a debate on the Special Protection Group (Amendment) Bill. Raja had cited Godse’s statement about why he killed Gandhi. The parliamentarian from Tamil Nadu said Godse had assassinated Gandhi because he believed in a particular philosophy.

After she interrupted Raja, BJP members persuaded Thakur to sit down while Opposition members started protesting against her remark.

Her statement yesterday in the parliament is condemnable. The BJP never supports such statement or ideology,
