New Delhi, Feb 24: Is Afzal Guru a martyr or a terrorist? BJP leader Anurag Thakur on Wednesday raised the question in the Lok Sabha while participating in a discussion on the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) row.

Thakur accused the Congress of "standing with those who call Afzal Guru a martyr", during the JNU controversy.

"You will have to decide whether you are with those who attack our parliament or those who protect it?" Thakur said.

He began by invoking the sacrifices of Captain Pawan Kumar and Lance Naik Hanumanthappa, adding that the BJP stood with the soldiers and implemented the long-pending 'One Rank One Pension' (OROP) scheme.

Targeting the Congress and its vice president Rahul Gandhi, Thakur said: "Your leader goes and sympathises with those who were celebrating Afzal Guru as a martyr."

"For them, it is family first, nation last. For us, it is nation first," he said.
