She made a statement in the Lok Sabha today. Pragya has apologized and said:

"I am sorry if my statements hurt anyone but I would also like to say that my statements were twisted and presented in another manner and this is condemnable. I was tagged as a terrorist.

The tweet reads "Storm of lies becomes so big at times that even day appears to be night but the Sun does not lose its light. People should not be swayed by this storm. Truth is that I did not tolerate the insult to Udham Singh yesterday."

Pragya Thakur's tweet came soon after BJP barred her from the parliamentary party meeting during the ongoing Parliament session.
