BJP’s relation between curses and boons is getting stronger. Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur, the main accused of Malegaon Blast, mocks the 26/11 Mumbai Attack hero, Hemant Karkare. She says that he lost his life because she “cursed him”.
Addressing party workers in Bhopal, Thakur came down heavily on the late ATS chief, who was awarded the Ashok Chakra for his bravery in facing the Mumbai terror attack, and alleged that she was tortured and abused by him in ways that were “unbearable”.
The Maharashtra Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) had arrested Sadhvi Pragya Thakur and others in the case, alleging they were part of a Hindu extremist group which carried out the blast. She is the prime accused in the case and as it was her bike that was used to fit the explosive. She is currently out on bail and is facing terrorism charges under the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA).
She said she cursed Karkare for the alleged threats, torture and miserable treatment in custody. “Maine kaha tha tera sarvanash hoga (I cursed him that he would be finished),” she said.
Referring to sutak, an auspicious period of one month and a half according to Hindu tradition which starts after death or birth of anyone in family, she said that the holy period started on the day she landed in jail and ended the day Karkare was slain by terrorists.
“Inauspicious period started for Hemant Karkare when I was arrested. Exactly 45 days later he was killed and that was the end of the inauspicious period,” she said.
Such a shame that the ruling party is fielding such leaders. Some leaders refer army as Modi ji ki Sena, some leaders are counting seats based on Air-strike, and some are mocking martyr. They are showing the power of their curses by mocking and threatening public. These are the candidates of the ruling party. Please voters, choose wisely.
