Activists ask PM Modi to remove 3 BJP leaders
A protest was held at Azad Maidan, Mumbai on Saturday, where several organisations, activists and journalists came out to protest against the remarks made by three Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders – Ananth Kumar Hegde, Sadhvi Pragya Thakur and Nalin Kateel – against Mahatma Gandhi and praising Nathruam Godse. The protestors demanded these three BJP leaders should be removed from the party.
Speaking aboutm this protest, Feroze Mithiborwala of Bharat Bachao Andolan said, “We have been on a hunger protest from 1.00-6.00 pm. The protestors said if Prime Minister Narendra Modi really loves the values of Mahatma Gandhi as he claims, then he should ensure these three leaders are removed from the party. They have indulged in Hindutva politics since 1948.”
Kamal Haasan had recently said Nathruram Godse is the ‘first terrorist of independent India.’ After which, Pragya, the BJP candidate from Bhopal and prime accused in the 2008 Malegaon blasts, said, ‘Nathuram Godse is a true patriot and will remain so’.
