Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Thursday condemned BJP leader Pragya Thakur's remarks on Nathuram Godse and sought apology from the BJP. "AAP strongly condemns Pragya Thakur's statement and wants to know why the top BJP leadership is silent? Why are they (BJP) not expelling her from the party and apologising to the nation?" the party said in a statement.

The BJP is destroying the country beyond repair and all democratically minded countrymen need to understand this danger before it is too late, the party said. "Who could have ever imagined that Indians would ever hear Godse being praised by a mainstream political party and that too India's ruling party."

On Thursday, replying to actor-turned-politician Kamal Haasan's remark that India's first terrorist was a Hindu (in reference to Godse), Thakur had said, "Nathuram Godse was a 'deshbhakt', is a 'deshbhakt' and will remain a 'deshbhakt'." (ANI)
