'Highly condemnable': Nitish Kumar on Pragya Thakur's remark on Godse

"Statements of Ananthkumar Hegde, Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur and Nalinkumar Kateelare are their personal opinions".

Thakur was released on bail in 2017 but still faces a criminal prosecution. Mob attacks on minority groups, especially Muslims, have been on the rise since the BJP came to power in 2014. Senior party leaders have attended her campaign events and endorsed her run for office, which appears to be the first time a major party in India has fielded a candidate accused of involvement in a terrorist conspiracy.

"The apology she has made, at the behest of the BJP, is an eyewash confirming that she adheres to her position", a CPI-M statement said.

"Now you tell me who is the most cruel person?" The trial against Thakur started in December but a final verdict is not expected anytime soon. She also declared the BJP's line was her line. She has denied the charges.

Kateel's apology said: "It has come to my attention that my last two tweets have come in for criticism". He was referring to the robes worn by Hindu ascetics.

"People who call him a terrorist should search their soul. Such people will be given a befitting reply in these elections", Thakur told reporters in Bhopal on Thursday. In his tweets Shah insisted that these comments did not reflect the views of the BJP and that ten days had been given to the three to explain their position.

"In a civilised society, this kind of language and thinking does not work". It's not enough to say that in your heart, you will not forgive them.

Thakur declined to be interviewed for this story.

This attack seemed to have the support of the top leadership, judging from the silence. "I will write to leaders of all parties to build a consensus on this", said Nitish Kumar.

Thakur, whose family says she is a cancer survivor, has often wept while describing the torture she claims she endured in custody. Even court has said that the bhagwa terror was imagination.

Thakur's supporters expressed deep empathy.

At a rally, PM Modi had said that Rajiv Gandhi, who was termed "Mr. They will get the answers this election", she added.

The Election Commission of India of course, has remained well out of the picture. "Is this how they give us justice?" She had earlier made some obnoxious remarks about Chief of Maharashtra's Anti-Terrorist Squad (ATS) Hemant Karkare and said that she had put a curse on Karkare seeking his total destruction and five weeks later he was killed.
