Why I Killed the Mahatma: UNCOVERING GODSES DEFENCE

₹ 595

Available: in stock

Description:

It is common knowledge that Mahatma Gandhi was shot dead in 1948 by a Hindu militant, shortly after India had both gained her independence and lost nearly a quarter of her territory to the new state of Pakistan. Lesser known is assassin Nathuram Godses motive. Until now, no publication has dealt with this question, except for the naked text of Godses own defence speech during his trial. It didnt save him from the hangman, but still contains substantive arguments against the facile glorification of the Mahatma. Dr Koenraad Elst compares Godses case against Gandhi with criticisms voiced in wider circles and with historical data known at the time or brought to light since. While the Mahatma was extolled by the Hindu masses, political leaders of divergent persuasions who had had dealings with him were less enthusiastic. Their sobering views would have become the received wisdom about the Mahatma if he hadnt been martyred. Yet, the author also presents some new considerations in Gandhis defence from unexpected quarters.
