Amit Shah defends Sadhvi Pragya, calls allegations against her baseless

PM Modi had also earlier defended the BJP fielding Sadhvi Pragya, calling it a symbolic answer to Congress 'Hindu terror' narrative.

BJP national President Amit Shah came out in defense of BJP candidate from Bhopal Lok Sabha constituency, Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur today saying that a false case was filed against her in the name of Hindu terror to malign the Indian culture.

Speaking at a press conference in Kolkata, Shah said, “As far as Sadhvi Pragya is concerned, I would say that a fake case was filed in the name of Hindu terror. The culture if this country was maligned in the world. But the case turned out to be false in the court.”

Speaking at a media conference, Shah cited the example of the verdict in the Samjhauta Express case in which court had acquitted the four accused including Swami Aseemanand, and questioned that if Swami Aseemanand and the other accused were falsely implicated in the case, where did the real culprits go?
