Keeping The Spirit Of Gandhi Alive by Prabhakar Timble

Keeping The Spirit Of Gandhi Alive by Prabhakar Timble

January 30, 1948. Gandhiji left his room in Birla House for the prayer meeting. 5.12 pm. A young man offered “pranam.” Three shots were fired from point-blank range piercing the frail body. India lost the Father of the Nation to the bullets of a Hindu fanatic.

The men in ‘khaki ganvesh’ continue even today to glorify the killing. They are coached to spit venom alleging the Pro-Pakistan stance of the Mahatma. They make the Mahatma a spectacle of public ridicule by describing the world apostle of peace as the Father of Pakistan. He is accused of sheltering the Muslims and for being responsible for India’s partition. For the fundamentalist and fanatic Hindu, providing shelter to Indian Muslim is a crime against nation, little short of treason and the butchery through sponsored communal riots is atonement of sins committed by Gandhi. The fundamentalists and votaries of Hindu Rashtra gleefully paint Gandhiji as anti-Hindu
