We removed the waste from our Lord Ram’s temple: Pragya Thakur on Babri Masjid demolition

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) candidate from the Bhopal parliamentary constituency in Madhya Pradesh Sadhvi Pragya Thakur said on Sunday that she takes pride in the demolition of the Babri Masjid.

“We do not regret but are proud of demolishing the Babri Masjid. We removed the waste from our Lord Ram’s temple,” she said in a TV interview.

The Election Commission issued two notices to Pragya Thakur for her hate speech.

She got a notice to explain her comments on the death of Maharashtra Anti-Terrorism Squad chief Hemant Karkare, and another for her remarks claiming that she had a role in the demolition of Babri Masjid in 1992, and she was proud of it.

Thakur has been mired in controversy since she made a remark last week about Hemant Karkare, the senior police officer who was killed in the terrorist attack in Mumbai on November 26, 2008, saying that he died as she “cursed” him for torturing her.

As a result, the Election Commission on Saturday served her a notice and has been given 24 hours to respond.
