Malegaon blast accused Pragya Thakur - who is taking of Congress's Digvijay Singh from the Bhopal Lok Sabha seat -- has been barred from campaigning for 72 hours for her hugely objectionable statement on Babri Masjid demolition. The ban begins from 6 am on Thursday. The Election Commission said her comment -- that she had climbed atop the mosque and broken it, and she was "proud" of it -- violates the rule against appealing to caste and communal feelings.
