Hindu Mahasabha unveils Nathuram Godse’s bust in their office
Meerut,Oct3:Instead of observing Gandhi Jayanti on 2 October, which the United Nations has declared to be the International Day of Non-Violence, the Hindu Mahasabha unveiled a bust of Nathuram Godse, who assassinated Mahatma Gandhi.
Pandit Ashok Sharma, national vice-president of the organisation, told the newspaper that recent surgical strikes in Uri was evidence that “all of us follow Godse’s principles but still praise and worship Gandhi.”
Our step signifies that it is time all Indians stop following Gandhi’s footsteps and start worshipping Godse,” he said.
Yogendra Verma, the Mahasabha’s UP unit president, told the newspaper that he had spent Rs. 45,000 over the bust, which was built by artisans in Jaipur.
