Pragya Thakur and Godse

Thakur has previously stirred controversy in June when she called the Mahatma's assassin Nathuram Godse -a "Deshbhakt" (Patriot). She added that those who have termed Godse as a terrorist will get a reply from the people in the elections. Her remark was in response to MNM chief Kamal Haasan's 'free India's first terrorist was a Hindu' remark in reference to Nathuram Godse.

"Nathuram Godse was, is and will remain a 'Deshbhakt'. People calling him a terrorist should instead look within. Such people will be given a befitting reply in these elections," Sadhvi Pragya said.
