Murder of Mahatma Gandhi-A View
I read a book, ‘Murder of Mahatma Gandhi’ and gathered an
impression that first to kill Gandhi struck to the mind of Mr.
Narayan Apte and he was more determined to execute the plan but
Mr. Nathuram Godse was not having any family responsibilities so
he took the responsibility for himself to kill Gandhi ji for
insulting Hindu sentiments religiously and putting them in loss
economically under the threat of fast immediately after
independence. Both took decision collectively to kill him
considering that Gandhi is always, intentionally and
deliberately, presuming and proving Hindus as weak wrongly.
To my mind, Gandhi ji -
Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi
used always weapon of fast with an idea though hidden, in order
to incite the communities against each other and with the same
weapon he pressurized
Dr. Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar (April
in 1932, molding him to abandon his demands. (Mahatma) Gandhi
never shall be known as a worshiper of non-violence by judging
him from his actions and utterances. To my experience, every
human is spiritual to some extent but not so deceptive
politically like Gandhi i.e.
of the Nation".
As Gandhi ji himself pleaded that if Sikhs demands based on
promises were not accepted then what for sword is with them? If
(Mahatma) Gandhi is really ‘Father of the Nation’ even today
then his words do permit Sikhs to resort to violence to get
their demands accepted. Is the government of
ready and willing to accept the promises made by him or allow
Sikhs to act according to the advice of Father of your Nation?
In fact, non-cooperation movements and resorting to fast
tactics, (Mahatma) Gandhi copied from the past great
personalities as the weapons of violence i.e. for agitating the
masses to become violent for the specific cause and with an aim
in a planned manner in mind but withdrawing himself cunningly to
disown his own men, keeping the leaderless masses fighting for
the cause violently. Though, he never admitted that the weapons
are borrowed and copied by him.
time may come when Mahatma Gandhi would never be known or called
as Father of the Nation even by Hindus. Mr. Narayan Apte and Mr.
Nathuram Godse would be more respected heroes of all especially
Hindus for many more other reasons might come out later on to
the knowledge of masses. Indian people must and have always to
repent for hanging the two heroes Mr. Narayan Apte and Mr.
Nathuram Godse of
For the reason, Mr. Narayan Apte remained in high spirit till
end comparatively thinking that it was only his job though the
act was performed alone by Mr. Nathuram Godse in furtherance of
their common intention.
the menace of violence taught so far.
I expressed my views and exposed my mind on the subject as a
student of political science and law but always liable to be
corrected by those who differ with me in this regard.
