Did Modi orchestrated Godhra riots? Here’s what Sadhvi Prachi says

NEW DELHI: A chilling video of motormouth leader from Bharatiya Janta Party urging PM Modi to orchestrate another Godhra-like bloodshed in Pakistan to avenge Pulwama attack goes viral on social media platforms.

In the video, the VHP leader Sadhvi Prachi urged the Prime Minister to cause another Godhra-like carnage to teach Pakistan a lesson.

“I am requesting the prime minister with folded hands that ‘Mr Prime Minister, the entire country will bow to you if you can cause Godhra-like carnage in Pakistan.’ Terrorism will not end until we burn Rawalpindi and Karachi.”

No sooner, the video went viral and social media users including journalists began to wonder the Vishwa Hindu Parishad leader’s inadvertently confirmationn on Modi’s role in 2002 Godhra train attack.

Journalist Ravi Nair wrote, “BJP leader Sadhvi Prachi made two things clear: A) Modi govt will do some drama in the north western border of India in the run up to election. B) She said in open who orchestrated Godhra carnage.”

Journalist Rohini Singh wrote, “Such a shrill voice this one has.”

Here are some other reactions to Prachi’s video:
