Mumbai: In seemingly the most controversial statement so far after the Pulwama terror attack, Sadhvi Prachi, VHP leader and founder of Durga Vahini, asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi to "orchestrate Godhra-like carnage" in Pakistan to eliminate terror.

"Godhra carnage" is a reference to the Godhra train burning incident that was followed by the 2002 anti-Muslim riots in Gujarat when Narendra Modi was Chief Minister of the state.

59 people, mostly Hindu Karsevaks returning from Ayodhya, were killed after a coach of Sabarmati Express caught fire near Godhra station on February 27, 2002. Local Muslims were immediately blamed for the tragic incident that led to wide-spread violence which was later termed as "genocide and massacre" of the minority communtiy.

Narendra Modi, then Chief Minister of Gujarat, was accused of "allowing and giving a free hand to violent Hindu groups". In the state elections that followed soon after, Modi won with a landslide victory.

Sadhvi Prachi, who never tried to hide her hate against Muslims, now wants PM Modi to "orchestrate Gohra like carnage in Pakistan" to avenge the killings of 40 CRPF troopers in Pulwama district of Kashmir Thursday.

"I am requesting Pradhan Mantri Modi ji with folded hands. Entire country will bow to you if you orchesrate Godhra like carnage in Pakistan", she can be heard saying in a video.

"We will not be able to eliminate terrorism, unless Rawalpindi and Karachi are not burnt", she added.

The video is widely shared. As soon as it went viral, people reacted saying that Sadhvi Prachi's statement is an endorsement that "the Godhra carnage was orchestrated by Modi". Among the first to draw this conclusion is AAP MLA Alka Lamba.

"Listen to her and bookmark. Godhra carnage was orchesrated by PM Modi", she wrote on Twitter.

Ravi Nair, a journalist, wrote using Twitter handler, @t_d_h_nair, "BJP leader Sadhvi Prachi made two things clear: A) Modi govt will do some drama in the north western border of India in the run up to election. B) She said in open who orchestrated Godhra carnage."

Reacting on Sadhvi Prachi's statement, Rohini Singh, another journalist, wrote, “Such a shrill voice this one has.”
