Pragya Singh Thakur is a Hindu extremist leader who was involved in the planning of 2006 Malegaon blasts. The explosions caused the deaths of 40 innocent Muslims. She has now publicly stated that Godse was a patriot who served his motherland.
She was in direct contact with those who were the attackers, in fact, she was one of them. Her motorcycle was the key piece of evidence. Lt Col Prasad Purohit met her in Bhopal and together they planned the terror attack.
She’s currently the BJP candidate for the Bhopal Lok Sabha elections. During multiple occasions, she has insulted men like Hemant Karkare who had arrested her in regards to the bombings. Her nature is deeply communal. The saffron party choosing her as a candidate was a crime against humanity in itself.
Her words are fiery and have caused a ban to be implemented on her by the Election Commission. Earlier, Modi and other right-wing organizations had criticized actions of the ATS and their allegations against Abhinav Bharat, which only proves how severe intolerance thrives in our nation.
