Faceoff: Rajnath hails Veer Savarkar, divides Twitter | India News – Times of India

Must read


NEW DELHI. Hailing Veer Savarkar as a staunch nationalist and India’s first military strategist in the 20th century, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh on Tuesday said it was on Mahatma Gandhi’s request that he wrote mercy petitions to the British and people from the Marxist and Leninist ideology wrongly accuse him of being a fascist.
Joining Singh, RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat hit out at what they called a motivated campaign to vilify the image of Veer Savarkar as part of a larger project to malign the Hindutva movement and cause divisions in society.

Slamming Singh, AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi alleged that the BJP will soon declare Savarkar as ‘the father of the nation’.

Singh’s remarks divided Twitter, with many users hailing Savarkar as a true nationalist, while others claimed that the Defence Minister was peddling misinformation.

‘Singh is right’

‘Gandhi was in South Africa when Savarkar filed his first mercy petition’

‘NCERT books distorting history to serve Nehruvian ideology’

‘RSS has a habit of rewriting history’

There’s a twist to Ramesh’s claim

Comparison between Nehru and Savarkar

Sequence of petitions

‘Gandhi on Savarkar’

‘Singh under pressure to emulate Modi’

‘Savarkar original victim of cancel-culture’

‘New history for new India’

And the jokes followed…..
