Mahtma Gandhi: Unsafe even after death
Even after death, his principles have great admirers and dangerous critics. The only Indian leader of past known almost to the whole of the globe is one and only, father of the nation – Mahatma Mohan Das Karamchand Gandhi.
Gandhi was shot dead by Nathuram Vinayak Godse, suspected Hindu Nationalist. Rhastriya swayam sevak sang, prime Hindu nationalist Organization – was banned after the assassination of father of the nation.
When the ban was placed against the hindu fundamentalist organization, Sardar Vallabhai patel was second to Pandit. Jawahar Lal Nehru in the government. Sardar Vallabhai Patel is being applauded by the Hindu organizations now.
Now, there is a huge hue and cry but not well noticed. The cry is to save documents of the time and about the assassination of Mahatma.
Though the government has denied the allegation, still few suspect the government. The Present government is a branch of RSS.
The Home ministry and law ministry has ruled out the allegation. The Law Minister stated the records were not deleted based on order from the Prime Minister. The Home minister has rendered statement stating records are still safe.
The CPM (Communist Party of India – Marxist ) raised the issue in the parliament some time ago. Congress joined them in the parliament.
There are ample amount of reasons to suspect this government on deleting Gandhi records. Few still believe, Nathuram Vinayak Godse was ideological kid of RSS or Hindu Mahasabha.
Godse and Vir Sawarkar were against Gandhi. The government of India, post independence – felt reasons for suspecting Vir Sawarkar, an ideological father of the concept – Hindutva.
Godse and Sawarkar family has family relations still now. Difference of opinion cannot be attributed for assassination. But Godse took the difference of opinion to next level.
Gandhi might have been bad per him. But Gandhi never closed the door for discussions.
Gandhi was a Guajarati and the present prime minister too. But they may be extremely different.
After British rule, Gandhi was unsafe. Now, even after death, Gandhi is unsafe. The father of nation is not safe in the nation.
