Bharata Ratna for Veer Savarkar!


Well. Now this is just a demand from the Shiv Sena. But it soon could turn out the demand for all the hindutwa groups. The party MP Sanjay Raut in his article in Saamana has severely criticised the central government for not giving enough respect for Savarkar and demanded a Bharat Ratna for him. Savarkar is known for extreme hindutwa ideas during the times of Independence. He was also sometimes considered to be the guru of Godse who killed Gandhi. However, pro hindutwa groups such as RSS, VHP and Shiv Sena consider him to be one of the torch bearer of Hindu glory.
