Gandhi’s 68th Death Anniversary

BJP Releasing Book on Godse

Today is the 68th death anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi.

But the day hardly matters to the Government headed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi as the BJP loves Gandhi’s killer Nathuram Godse more than the Father of the Nation.

Gandhi shot deadIt is a government that thinks Godse did a favour to India by killing Gandhi. To them, their religion comes first, all else is secondary.

In fact, a BJP leader is releasing a book on the killer, ‘Nathuram Godse – The Story of an Assassin’ and written by Anup Ashok Sardesai, today

Mahatma-Gandhi- stampAll the talk about Gandhi that Mr Modi makes while he is on his overseas junkets is not meant to be taken seriously.

Incidentally, today is also the death anniversary of my maternal grandmother, Alice Rajammal, who passed away this day in 1958, a decade after the assassination of Gandhi. My eldest daughter takes her first name from her great grandmother!
