Sadhvi Pragya should be elected with a huge margin. That will be the best vindication of her battle for justice
Sickulars are objecting to the fielding of Sadhvi Pragya Thakur by the BJP in Bhopal since she is facing “terror” charges. But since she has not been convicted there is no legal bar on her candidature. Also, I want to know why the sickulars kept quiet when 20,000 persons attended the funeral of Yakub Memon, a terror convict, in Mumbai? By the way, Sanjay Dutt will be campaigning for Priya Dutt. Is that OK? I had successfully initiated a PIL against Sanjay Dutt in the Supreme Court when he planned to contest the Lok Sabha poll from Lucknow on an SP ticket.
Manmohan Singh released a book in the Prime Minister’s house in the presence of Priya Dutt and Sanjay even as the latter was facing terror-related criminal charges. And it was the Congress govt which did not try Sanjay under TADA, but under the Arms Act even though he had received dangerous weapons like AK -47 rifles and grenades in his bungalow in Bandra, where his father and Congress MP Sunil Dutt was staying. This was the biggest compromise of Congress with terrorism.
Sadhvi Pragya should be elected with a huge margin. That will be the best vindication of her battle for justice and it will also send a clear message to the practitioners of selective secularism especially since she is pitted against that arch pseudo-Digvijay Singh. The next step should be to have the false case of “Hindu terror” filed against Lt Col Purohit quashed.
Not only that, but all those police officers of the Maharashtra ATS who subjected the Sadhvi, Lt Col Purohit to third-degree torture should be criminally prosecuted.
