Pragya Thakur's outlook is in "sync" with Modi's: Swami Agnivesh

Well-known saint-activist Swami Agnivesh has said in a statement that BJP Bhopal candidate, Pragya Thakur, has "maligned" the cherished memory of Hemant Karkare, the martyr in the 26/11 Mumbai terror attack, adding, it "deserves to be condemned by all Indians, irrespective of party affiliations."
He said, "To claim that it was her curse that led to the untimely death of a brave police officer, who laid down his life in the line of duty, and for which he had been given highest civilian award (Ashok Chakra) in 2009" proves that "the lady may have the vestments of a sadhvi, but is wholly devoid of any spiritual sensitivity."
According to Agnivesh, "BJP did not choose Pragya for her spiritual finesse or political maturity, both of which lacks utterly. She has been chosen because of her ability to communalise the election. "Commenting on BJP seeking to "tactically distance" itself from Pragya’s statement, he added, "It cannot absolve itself of the responsibility for insulting the martyrs of this country by proxy."
Supporting Congress candidate from Bhopal Digvijay Singh, Agnivesh said, "She is pitted against a political veteran of proven merit and stature. The only way she can create a niche for herself is by playing... the familiar victim card." He added, "The gods are not only on her side, but also bound to do her bidding, irrespective of the malignancy of her disposition."
According to Agnivesh, Thakur’s outlook is "in sync with Modi’s", adding, "The trait common to both is that those who are inconvenient to them must be either crushed or cursed out of existence. So, while Modi seeks to eradicate the Congress from the face of the earth, Pragya has done one better: she has cursed her adversary to extinction."
Agnivesh demanded, "The least that Modi should do, if he differs in sentiments from Pragya, is to remove her from the electoral fray and send a clear signal to the country at large that such statements and sentiments have no place in our democratic culture."
