Talking about the remarks passed by BJP's Pragya Thakur, that Nathuram Godse was a patriot, the chairman of the Mahindra Group, Anand Mahindra, took to Twitter to share his thoughts. He said that "India recognized as “land of the Mahatma” globally. We used to be pitied for being poor, but we were rich because of Bapu's inspiration. Some things must remain sacred. Or we become the Taliban, destroying statues."
