She also said she is the “the living example of the numerous atrocities committed on women” and that she does not want any woman to go through the same pain that she did.

The BJP leader was addressing a public rally in Bhopal earlier this week wherein former Chief Minister and BJP leader Shivraj Singh Chouhan were also present.

In the public rally, Pragya Singh said:

“Women are being tortured and numerous atrocities were committed upon them. They are being exploited and raped. I am a living example of the pain inflicted on women. I have gone through that pain. Now I have come because I want that no woman should be tortured by these criminals.”

The same day (Tuesday), Thakur filed her nomination papers from Bhopal Lok Sabha constituency. She was accompanied by three supporters and her advocate.

Thakur is among the seven accused facing trial in the Malegaon blast case, wherein six people were killed and several others were left injured when a bomb placed on a motorcycle exploded in Maharashtra’s Malegaon on September 29, 2008. BJP is defending Sadhvi saying that a false case was registered against her and others.
