New Delhi: Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut on Sunday said if there was real “Hindutvawadi” then “he or she would have shot Jinnah” and not Mahatma Gandhi, adding that the formation of Pakistan was the former’s idea. Speaking to reporters on Martyrs’ Day, Raut said the world still mourns the loss of Mahatma Gandhi.

“Formation of Pakistan was Jinnah’s demand. If there was a real ‘Hindutvawadi’, then he/she would’ve shot Jinnah, not Gandhi. Such an act would’ve been an act of patriotism. The world even today mourns Gandhi Ji’s death,” Sanjay Raut was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.
