Savarkar's truth revelation: facts being altered or amended? | The Newshour Agenda

On The Newshour Agenda, with Padmaja Joshi, we discuss about the controversy sparked over Defence Minister Rajnath Singh’s statement over VD Savarkar’s apology. Veer Savarkar’s son, Ranjit Savarkar, claims that his grandfather’s appeal was not a mercy petition, but rather one filed at Mahatma Gandhi’s request. In the 1920s, Veer Savarkar was a politician and an activist. Defence Minister Rajnath Singh said the same thing as Ranjit at the presentation of the book “Veer Savarkar: The Man Who Could Have Prevented Partition,” describing Savarkar as a “icon of Indian history.” As we discuss about the topic, Uday Mahurkar, Author says, ‘You cannot apply Gandhian tools to Savarkar, you need to apply the tools of Shivaji.’ Watch the debate to know more.
