Prime Minister Narendra Modi has condemned a firebrand Hindu candidate from his ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) who called the assassin of independence icon Mahatma Gandhi a "patriot".
Modi was forced to act on Friday after a backlash grew over the comments made 24 hours earlier by Pragya Singh Thakur, who separately faces charges in connection with a 2008 mosque bombing that killed six people.
Thakur issued an apology for her statement that Gandhi's assassin Nathuram Godse "was, is, and will remain a patriot", but it failed to douse the controversy, and the Hindu nationalist BJP said it had launched an inquiry into the incident.
Gandhi was shot three times in January 1948 by Godse, a Hindu fanatic angered by what he considered to be Gandhi's pandering to Muslims and by India's partition after independence from Britain in 1947.
"People with such beliefs must think one hundred times before saying such things ... She apologised publicly for the comments, but I won't forgive her at a personal level," Modi added.
