Sadhvi Pragya later apologized for her statement, saying she respected Mahatma Gandhi and his work for the country cannot be forgotten.
“Godse had killed Gandhi’s body, but people like Pragya are killing the soil, non-violence, peace, tolerance and the soul of India. Gandhi is above all power and politics.
“The BJP leadership should forego its interest of any small benefit and immediately take her out of the party in compliance with the Raj dharma,” Mr. Satyarthi, a Nobel Peace Prize winner, tweeted.
