In fact, Rajnath Singh was addressing an international webinar on the topic ‘Role of Women in the Armed Forces’, during which he said these things.

Let us tell you that earlier Rajnath Singh was in discussion due to the statement given on Savarkar. He had said that Savarkar had filed a mercy petition at the behest of Mahatma Gandhi.
Rajnath Singh on Tuesday released a book based on the life of Veer Savarkar. During this, he had said that many kinds of lies were spread about Savarkar.
Rajnath had said that it has been said that Savarkar filed mercy petition many times before the British, while the truth is that he did so at the behest of Gandhiji. He said that Savarkar was a great freedom fighter. He always worked for the country and the nation.
He said that historians of Communist and Fascist ideology tried to defame Savarkar and spread hatred towards Savarkar in the country.
