Mahatma Gandhi is regarded as the man who defined the 20th century. He is also counted among the greatest human beings to walk the planet. Gandhi had inspired the likes of Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela et al and has been applauded by people across the spectrum from mathematical genius Albert Einstein to the Dalai Lama.
The controversy surrounding the hailing of the Mahatma’s assassin, Nathuram Godse, as a patriot has not died down. There’s been a lot of hair-splitting about Godse being an assassin but not a terrorist; Godse being portrayed as a desh-bhakth and so on. We need to ask questions and find solutions to this festering problem.
