According to The Quint, she had been granted bail by the Bombay High Court after citing health-related issues in 2017.
So naturally, her nomination is receiving a lot of flak, especially from Twitter.
#pragyasinghthakur appointment to Defense Committee is not the tragedy, the real tragedy is how many people think its alright to do so.— Srinivas Aluri (@cnuga) November 21, 2019
Terror accused Pragya Thakur is nominated to the Parliamentary Consultative Committee of the Ministry of Defence while citizens are arbitrarily slapped with PSA, sedition etc. etc.— Sidrah (@SidrahDP) November 21, 2019
The world's largest democracy and it's collective conscience.
So happy to see #PragyaThakur on getting nominated to Parliamentary Panel on Defence. Who knows better than her on terror. Subject matter expert should be on that panel and #pragyasinghthakur is the right choice. It's a masterstroke by PM #Modi. #ModiHaiTohMumkinHai— Manpreet Singh (@singh_1210) November 21, 2019
PM said he wouldn't forgive or talk to Pragya Ji, but party can offer anything to her even member of national defence panel.#pragyasinghthakur— Nikhil Baghela (@Nikhil_baghela) November 21, 2019
#pragyasinghthakur, still a terror accused, is now on the parliamentary committee on defence! Maybe our govt wants to get an 'insider perspective'. Did she ever apologise for her Godse remarks? Modiji said he will never forgive. Reward or punishment u decide. #SabTheekHai— Sagar Ogale (@TheSagarO) November 21, 2019
Pragya Thakur is still under trial under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act.
