Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar Sunday paid rich tributes to freedom fighter Veer Savarkar and described him as a true patriot.
“Remembering Veer Savarkar on his birth anniversary, a true patriot whose ideology inspires millions of Indians,” Parrikar tweeted.
Savarkar was a revolutionary freedom fighter who was known for his sacrifices for the nation. He advocated dismantling the system of caste in Hindu culture, and reconversion of the converted Hindus back to Hindu religion.
His political philosophy had the elements of utilitarianism, rationalism and positivism, humanism and universalism, pragmatism and realism. Savarkar was also an atheist and a staunch rationalist who disapproved of orthodox Hindu belief, dismissing cow worship as superstitious
