Shiv Sena Rajya Sabha Member of Parliament Sanjay Raut has once again created ripples with a controversial statement.
"If instead of Mahatma Gandhi, Nathuram Godse had killed Mohamad Ali Jinnah, then today our country would be united and that we would not have need to ask the people to observe the Partition Horror Remembrance day," he wrote in his weekly column Rokthok in party mouthpiece Saamana.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his speech on 75th independence day from Red Fort asked people to observe the Partition Horror Remembrance day. Raut added that when the seeds of partition were sown that time the Mahatma Gandhi was not the leader of the country.
The Sena spokesperson also stated that the Hindutva folks must understand once Nehru became the first PM of India, he immediately cancelled the separate elected presentations to Muslims.
