Rampur: BJP's Lok Sabha candidate from Bhopal Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur stirred the controversy by calling Nathuram Godse as a "deshbhakt". Now, Samajwadi Party leader Azam Khan on Thursday described Mahatma Gandhi's assassin as the identity of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS).

On Thursday, Khan said, "Condemnation of Pragya Singh Thakur's comment by the BJP is not enough. Godse is the identity of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, the same way khaki nikkar (khaki shorts) is. Now, it is in the hands of the people to decide whether they want our nation to be identified with Gandhi or Godse, humanity or khaki nikkar.’

He further said that the BJP should throw Sadhvi Pragya out of the party.

Earlier, Sadhvi Pragya had said: "Nathuram Godse was a deshbhakt, is a deshbhakt and will remain a deshbhakt. People calling him a terrorist should instead look within. Such people will be given a befitting reply in these elections".
