On Pragya Thakur calling Nathuram Godse a “patriot”

Dear Madam,
Before admonishing Pragya Singh Thakur for calling Nathuram Godse a “patriot”; criticism should at first be directed towards the party which had given the terror accused in her a ticket for Lok Sabha polls and also didn’t cancel her candidature despite coming up with the same comment few days prior to polls. Not to forget her promotion to defence panel recently!
Criticism should also be directed towards those people who had voted in favour of her and her party also which offers tickets to such elements.
And not mere dropping from defence panel, she should have been sacked from the party itself if there had been any semblance of sincerity and hurt on the part of higher-ups following such outrageous comments.
Without backing of her party and the electorate, she is simply a non-entity. So at first her backers need to be taken to task.
