A day after former Congress President Rahul Gandhi called BJP MP Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur a ‘terrorist’, a Congress MLA from Madhya Pradesh has issued shocking threats to the Bhopal MP stating that he will burn her alive is she enters the state.

According to the reports, Biaora Congress MLA Govardhan Dangi issued threatening statement against Pragya Thakur saying that she will be burnt alive if she ever sets her foot in Madhya Pradesh.

“We will not just burn her effigy…if she sets foot here, we will burn her also,” said the Biaora MLA.

The shocking comments against Bhopal MP come after the controversy over Sadhvia Pragya allegedly calling Nathuram Godse, the killer of MK Gandhi a ‘patriot’ during a debate in Lok Sabha on Wednesday.

Following that, opposition members had strongly protested against the remarks made by BJP MP Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur during the debate in the parliament. Congress leader Rahul Gandhi yesterday went on to call BJP MP Sadhvi Pragya Thakur a ‘terrorist’ after she had allegedly praised Nathuram Godse by calling him a patriot.

However, Sadhvi Pragya Thakur’s response came after DMK member A Raja had cited a statement of Godse on why he killed MK Gandhi during a discussion on the Special Protection Group (Amendment) Bill. Responding to Raja, Thakur had reportedly interrupted to say, “You cannot give the example of a deshbhakt.”

Later, Thakur had clarified that she was referring to Udham Singh when she made the statement.

Following the outrage, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh on Thursday had clarified that the BJP condemned any philosophy which describes Nathuram Godse as a ‘patriot’.

Speaking in the Lok Sabha, Union Defence Minister and senior BJP leader Rajnath Singh also said that the philosophy of Mahatma Gandhi was, is and will remain relevant and described him as a guide (margdarshak) for the nation.

After the controversy, Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur has also been removed from a key parliamentary panel and has been barred from attending the parliamentary party meetings of the party.

Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur joined the BJP formally early this year and went on to win the 2019 Lok Sabha polls from Bhopal against Congress veteran Digvijay Singh. The NIA had given her a clean chit in the Malegaon Blasts case in 2016 after years of brutal torture in prison.

It is widely believed that Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur was one of the victims of the Congress party’s attempt to invent Hindu Terror. However, Sadhvi Pragya was granted bail in April 2017 after she was jailed for eight long years. Her legal representative said in an exclusive interview to OpIndia.com that she should have been granted bail in half an hour based on the circumstances of the case. We were further told that there was no credible evidence against her.
