Congress NSUI National secretary ‘proud’ of shameful vandalisation of Savarkar’s bust by collegues, calls freedom fighter ‘gaddar’

Yesterday in another despicable low, the National general secretary of NSUI has taken to Twitter to not only endorse the shameful act carried out by her associate but to also defame India's freedom fighter by calling him a 'Deshdrohi' and 'Gaddar' (traitor).

The politics behind the installation of the bust of Veer Savarkar in the Delhi university reached its crescendo with the authorities of the university being forced to pull down Savarkar statue under pressure from National Students’ Union of India (NSUI).

The president of the Delhi University Students Union (DUSU), Shakti Singh of the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP), on Tuesday installed busts of the three historical figures at the North Campus of the university without seeking approval from the university or civic authorities.

Following the installation, Congress-affiliated NSUI Delhi wing president Akshay Lakra blackened the bust of Veer Savarkar to protest against its unauthorised installation. Lakra along with other activists also put a shoe garland around Savarkar’s statue.

Yesterday in another despicable low, the National general secretary of NSUI has taken to Twitter to not only endorse the shameful act carried out by her associate but to also defame India’s freedom fighter by calling him a ‘Deshdrohi’ and ‘Gaddar’ (traitor).

Surbhi Dwivedi took to Twitter to say: We r proud of @akshaylakra17 for blackening the face of a Deshdrohi who used to write mercy petitions to the britishers & was involved in the killing of Gandhiji. Gaddar Savarkar doesn’t deserve to be placed beside the freedom fighters who laid their lives for the country.

This is, however, not surprising as the adherent is just toeing in lines with its bosses which in this case is the Congress party. Hatred for Veer Savarkar is not new for Congress. Congress has a history of harassing Savarkar since 1910 when Jawaharlal Nehru refused to donate for Savarkar, according to an article by Shreerang Godbole in weekly Organiser in 2004. Read to know.

Moreover, Veer Savarkar was jailed for false charges in the murder of Mahatma Gandhi. Later Savarkar was released when no evidence was found against him. Since then, except for a small period of time under Indira Gandhi, Congress has always tried to malign and defame Savarkar and neglected his glorious contribution to the independence struggle.

The Congress Party, its president Rahul Gandhi and others of the ‘secularist’ school of thought have repeatedly insulted the great revolutionary and freedom fighter Swatantryaveer Savarkar (meaning of it is ‘Hero of Independence’ Savarkar), and called him a ‘traitor’ for his ‘mercy petitions’ to the British while he was in jail in the Andamans, where he was incarcerated from 1911 to 1921. In reality, those petitions were a ‘strategic letter of ploy’ to get out of jail, for which Savarkar should be praised.
