Savarkar is an unlikely hero of the right

Called Savarkar: The true story of the Father of Hindutva, its author Vaibhav Purandare writes he was not a cow worshipper. “If the cow’s mother to anyone at all, it’s the bullock”, Savarkar wrote in his Marathi journal Kirloskar. “Not the hindus. If Hindutva is to sustain itself on cow’s legs it will go crashing down at the slightest hint of a crisis.”
Scornful of cow-worship, and an admirer of science, Savarkar’s traits would come as a surprise(Hindustan Times)

Don’t malign Savarkar for petty political gains

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.
Rahul Gandhi’s grandmother, Indira Gandhi, in her message on Savarkar’s death in 1966 said: “It removes from our midst a great figure of contemporary India. His name was a byword for daring and patriotism. Mr Savarkar was cast in the mould of a classical revolutionary and countless people drew inspiration from him.”(HT Photo)
