Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday said he will not be able to forgive Pragya Singh Thakur over her statement on Mahatma Gandhi’s assassin Nathuram Godse.
After BJP’s national president Amit Shah, Prime Minister Modi took a serious view of some BJP leaders and MPs foul mouthing about Mahatma Gandhi, praising his assassin Godse.
“Whatever statement has been made with regards to Gandhiji and Godse. This is very very bad. This needs utter condemnation from all quarters. In a civilised society such language is not acceptable. She has apologised but, I will not be able to forgive her,” the prime minister said.
Meanwhile, the BJP suspended Anil Saumitra from primary membership of the party over his social media post in which he described Mahatma Gandhi as the ‘Father of Pakistan’.
The party has given him 7 days to reply and explain his stance.
BJP president Shah stated that the party has taken a serious note of the statements by Union minister Anantkumar Hegde, Pragya Singh Thakur and its Karnataka MP Nalin Kumar Kateel.
Describing the MPs’ tweets as against BJP’s ideology, Shah asked the party’s disciplinary committee to submit a report on the issue in 10 days for further action.
