Kamal Hassan stated : “Nathuram Godse was independent India’s first terrorist”.
Stupid of him. He is a good actor but that’s about it. He doesn’t know the difference
between an assassin and a terrorist. His statement should have been ignored.
But we have a tendency to attach some value to every thing our stupid celebrities utter.
Sadhwi Pragya reacted : “Godse was a patriot”. Personally, I don’t find anything wrong
in her statement. That is HER opinion.
I read that BJP forced her to apologise for making that statement. I can understand.
Here, votes are involved. One phase of election is still pending. There are voters
whose fingers may shift to other buttons on hearing a BJP person speaking in
support of Godse.
Now what is surprising is our PM getting wild and saying “can’t forgive Pragya for
Godse remark”. Does he really mean it ? I was under the impression that he has
better mental abilities. Or, did he make that statement with the pending phase of
election in mind ?
Gandhi is a great man. Agreed. We call him father of our country and revere him.
Right. And he deserves the respect and reverence. But can’t someone - Godse in this case
- for whatever reason - hate Gandhi but love India ?
Why are we mixing up things?
