Modi & BJP must condemn Pragya Thakur’s praise for Godse, rein her in

It is shameful that BJP’s Bhopal candidate Pragya Thakur called Nathuram Godse a patriot. In the 150th year of Mahatma Gandhi’s birth, a commemoration that PM Narendra Modi himself kicked off, this is embarrassing. Modi and others who have defended the Malegaon blast accused must condemn and rein her in.

Why news media is in crisis & How you can fix it

India needs free, fair, non-hyphenated and questioning journalism even more as it faces multiple crises.

But the news media is in a crisis of its own. There have been brutal layoffs and pay-cuts. The best of journalism is shrinking, yielding to crude prime-time spectacle.

ThePrint has the finest young reporters, columnists and editors working for it. Sustaining journalism of this quality needs smart and thinking people like you to pay for it. Whether you live in India or overseas, you can do it here.

  1. The good people of Bhopal have sent her to the LOK SABHA. That in itself is a shocker. What astounds me is the fact that BJP who possibly knew already about the mandate they were about to receive, should have even thought of fielding her. Is this responsible action? Now with this mandate, to gain “vishwa’s” the first thing they need to do is to actually show the way by sidelining her and eventually holding a by election.

  2. You cant expect anything better from another assassin after all she’s a killer herself just
    like nathuram godse. One killer praising another. Hey Ram!

  3. Pragya Thakur speaks from the heart. This is what she believes in, her life’s ideology and mission. Not a slip of the tongue, or the intemperate words that are sometimes uttered in the face of extreme provocation, to be deeply regretted later. I will feel ashamed as an Indian if the good people of Bhopal send her to the Lok Sabha.
