Akhil Bhartiya Hindu Mahasabha National President Swami Chakrapani while reacting on Rahul Gandhi’s remarks over Veer Sawarkar has urged PM Modi to “restrict” the Congress leader’s social and political activities for ‘insulting the freedom fighter’.
The Hindu Mahasabha has resolved to erect a statue of Veer Savarkar in front of the Congress headquarters in the nation’s capital, according to a letter from Chakrapani to PM Modi dated November 19. He wrote, “Rahul Gandhi, the leader of the Congress Party, which was formed by Englishman AO Hume, has repeatedly degraded independence fighter Veer Savarkar.
The Mahasabha president described Gandhi as “mentally ill,” adding that the Congressman is breaking the law if he is “insulting the great liberation fighter of India at the behest of the British.”
“Rahul Gandhi is mentally ill and he needs mental treatment in Agra. If he is insulting the great freedom fighter of India at the behest of the British, it is also a crime. For this, the government must ban Rahul Gandhi’s all political activities immediately and put him behind bars,” he wrote.
“On next February 26, on the occasion of the Death anniversary of Veer Savarkar Hindu Mahasabha has decided to install a statue of Veer Savarkar in front of Congress Headquarters at 24 Akbar Road in Delhi,” the letter stated.
The Hindu Mahasabha also requested PM Modi to give Veer Savarkar the Bharat Ratna and rename Akbar Road Veer Savarkar Road.
Before independence, Savarkar allegedly betrayed leaders like Mahatma Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru, and Sardar Vallabh Bhai Patel by signing a letter of apology to the British, according to Rahul Gandhi, who was reading from a letter allegedly written by Savarkar to the British.
