Mumbai: BJP leader Subramanian Swamy called social activist Medha Patkar a Maoist on Facebook recently for speaking out against death penalty for the likes of convicted terrorists Afzal Guru and Ajmal Kasab. “Let him prove I am a Maoist… the Maoists themselves would never claim the same. Non-violence for us is a value and not merely a strategy” Patkar, an AAP candidate from Mumbai North East in the Lok Sabha election, said. Patkar said her organization stood for the strongest punishment for terrorists but was against capital punishment.
