UPDATED ON MAY 17, 2019 12:26 PM IST
Ironically those who castigate Savarkar for the petitions advocate human rights and mercy petitions of Ajmal Kasab, Yakub Memon, Afzal Guru, and the Maoists and their intellectual fountainheads. While “heat of the moment” comments amid political campaigning are understandable, repeatedly maligning those who have shed their sweat and blood for this country’s freedom is disgusting.
