“Bhagat Singh was a thinker who left behind a revolutionary ideology. RSS says that he praised Savarkar. Yes. He did… But he finished it within four-five lines. That’s that. Politics is far away from Bhagat Singh’s ideology. His legacy of nationalism should be taken forward with that spirit. Ideologically, he had huge similarity with Bose but Savarkar.It is an insult to juxtapose him with Savarkar” said Irfan Habib.
