Sadhvi Pragya a nationalist who was treated like a terrorist, says Baba Ramdev

Yoga Guru Baba Ramdev has said that Sadhvi Pragya, who is the prime accused in the Malegaon blast case, is not a terrorist but a nationalist who was tortured so much in jail that she got cancer. 

“It was gunaah ki parakashtha (the height of atrocity). You arrest a person just on the basis of mere suspicion and make her undergo physical and mental torture for nine years. The stress that she had to endure weakened her physically and she got afflicted with cancer. She is not a terrorist but a nationalist lady,” Ramdev told reporters in Patna.

Replying to a question related to the comment made by Sadhvi Pragya regarding the former ATS Chief of Mumbai Hemant Karkare, Ramdev said, “We should show some empathy for the woman who and try to understand her ordeal and the bitterness it must have given rise to.”

Recently, Sadhvi Pragya said that a mixture of cow urine and other cow products cured her breast cancer.

Sadhvi Pragya, who is the prime accused in the 2008 Malegaon blast case, said that the former Mumbai ATS chief who was killed during the 26/11 attacks, died due to his ‘Karma as he had treated her very badly’.

Her statement came under immense criticism and even the IPS Association demanded an apology.

She later apologized for her statement saying by saying that the ‘enemies of the country were benefiting from it.

“I felt that the enemies of the country were being benefited from it, therefore I take back my statement and apologise for it, it was my personal pain,” she told ANI. “He (Karkare) died from the bullets of terrorists from the enemy country, he is certainly a martyr,” she added.
