Sadhvi Pragya Gets EC Notice For Babri Mosque Remark

134

The Election Commission (EC) issued a notice for BJP candidate Pragya Thakur for making another controversial statement to a television channel in which she appeared to have supported the demolition of Babri Masjid.

“Why would we regret the demolition of the Babri Masjid? We are, in fact, proud of it. There were some waste products of the Ram temple and we removed it. This has awakened the self-respect of our country and we will construct a grand Ram temple,” Sadhvi Pragya said in an exclusive interview with Aaj Tak.

She also added during the interview,”Why would we regret the demolition of the Babri Masjid? We are, in fact, proud of it. There were some waste products of the Ram temple and we removed it. This has awakened the self-respect of our country and we will construct a grand Ram temple.

On being asked why a grand Ram temple has not been constructed at the site where Babri Masjid was demolished, Sadhvi Pragya said that this is a not a political issue for the Bharatiya Janata Party.

“The Congress has ruled for 70 years and look what it has done. Even our temples were not secure. By gathering and demolishing the structure of the Babri Masjid, the Hindus have awakened the self-respect of the country. Where will the Ram temple be constructed if not in this country?” Sadhvi Pragya said.

However, the saffron party distanced itself from her comments, saying it was her “personal view” which she might have made “due to years of physical and mental torture”.
