The Mahatma and the Sangh | The Indian Express

The Mahatma and the Sangh

Mutual respect between Gandhi and RSS is not widely known.

The poll bugle has been sounded and political leaders are busy delivering campaign speeches as per the culture and tradition of their parties. In one such speech, the leader of a party proclaimed that the vote this time around would be a choice between Mahatma Gandhi and Nathuram Godse. Those who follow Gandhian ideology pay special attention to their utterances and never take the name of Godse. I have participated in many such discussions on Gandhiji in the Sangh but never heard Godse mentioned. It is indeed ironic that those whose actions and policies are in direct opposition to the Mahatma’s life and legacy, who rely on falsehood and violence as a political weapon, seek to use his name insincerely for narrow political gains.
