New Delhi: BJP's Rajya Sabha MP Subramanian Swamy has shown a mirror to Congressmen who questioned Veer Savarkar's valor. For this, he has taken recourse to a letter from former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi. In this letter, Indira has described Savarkar as a brave son of the country. Swamy has shared this letter on Twitter.
Many big leaders of Congress have been questioning Savarkar's valor. They have been saying that Savarkar had apologized to the British. How can an apologist be brave? At the same time, the Sangh considers him a true son of Mother India. He was sentenced to life imprisonment twice. During that time he came in contact with RSS founder Dr Hedgevar.
After independence, Savarkar started working for the progress of Hindu society. While fasting, he breathed his last on 26 February 1966. In the history of Indian independence, the name of Savarkar is taken along with great heroes like Mahatma Gandhi and Subhash Chandra.
Subramanian Swamy has shared an old letter on Twitter. This letter was written by former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi. It was written on 20 May 1980. This letter was written in response to the letter of Pandit Bakhale. Bakhale was then the secretary of the Swatantra Veer Savarkar National Memorial. At that time there was a plan to celebrate the birth centenary of Savarkar.
Indira Gandhi wrote to Bakhle, "I have received your letter dated 8 May 1980. Veer Savarkar's courageous defiance of the British Government has its own importance in the history of our independence movement. I wish."
By sharing this letter of Indira Gandhi on Veer Savarkar, Swami has asked the Congressmen what they have to say on this? He has asked this question in one line. Through this, he has targeted all those Congressmen who question Savarkar's valor.
