Sadhvi Pragya was reacting to Kamal Haasan’s recent comment that the first terrorist in India was a Hindu.
Speaking at an election rally, the Makkal Needhi Maiam (MNM) founder said, “The first terrorist post-Independence was Nathuram Godse, a Hindu.
It started from there. He killed Mahatma Gandhi.
I am questioning this as the great grandson of Gandhi
