Sadhvi Thakur slapped with notice over statements
April 22, 2019
Recently, BJP’s Pragya Thakur sparked controversy by targeting a police officer who was martyred in the 26/11 terrorist attack. Thakur, who was criticizing police officer Hemant Karkare said that she had placed a curse on him and that is the reason he was killed by terrorists in the attack. She even supported the demolition of Babri Masjid and said that India must be proud that it happened. Soon after, a Delhi court sent her a notice for the comment and said that criticizing Karkare was atrocious.
Will @BJP4India drop Pragya Thakur as its candidate from Bhopal after her disgraceful insult of Hemant Karkare, the man who died during the night of 26-11?She cursed him. Her family. And BJP leaders next to her clapped-Abhisar Sharma, author
Thakur, who is contesting for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections from Bhopal, made her comments on a TV show. Thakur is also currently undergoing trial for being the prime accused in the Malegaon blast case in the year 2008. Karkare, who was part of the investigation team, had questioned Thakur during that time. She said that Karkare had physically assaulted her and that is when she placed her curse upon him. Her statements have sparked widespread controversy.
Rohini Salian, who was the former public prosecutor in the case, said there is proof that Thakur did not undergo any harassment while facing the trial.
“Pragya Thakur humiliates 26/11 hero and martyr Hemant Karkare. Guess who is Anti National”, tweeted Journalist Barkha Dutt.
“I strongly condemn BJP candidate Pragya Thakur’s statement on 26/11 martyr Hemant Karkare. It only exposes BJP’s scant respect for our brave martyrs”, tweeted politician Priya Dutt.
