What India is up to under Modi
canada goose coats One wonders as to what ‘heights’ the Indian Premier Narendra Modi canada goose outlet factory wishes to take his “Shining India” because his pampered loyalists are now debating over axing the country’s conventional annual holiday of October 2, which marks the birth anniversary of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, and instead honour his assassin Nathuram Vinayak Godse and instead by announcing a day off in memory of. canada goose coats
Canada Goose Parka Research conducted by the Jang Group and Geo Television Network reveals that this debate is not new because even a decade or so ago, some of Premier Modi’s supporters affiliated with a nationalist political party called the Akhil Bharatiya Hindu Mahasabha (ABHM) (All India Hindu Grand Assembly), had made various attempts to rehabilitate Godse and portray him as canada goose outlet uk a patriot. The Akhil Bharatiya Hindu Mahasabha, the oldest Hindu nationalist political party with over a 100 year history, was basically formed in early 20th century to protect Hindus from the British Empire, specially specially as a canada goose outlet uk sale sequel to the formation of Muslim League in 1906.

Nathuram Godse’s birthday falls on May 19 and his execution date is November 15, which is not far away.
Last year, the “Hindu Mahasabha” members had requested the sitting Indian prime minister to instal the bust of Godse and had even created a documentary film Desh Bhagat Nathuram Godse (Patriot Nathuram Godse) for release on the death anniversary of Gandhi on January 30, 2015.
However, a civil suit was filed in Pune Court asking for a ban on the documentary film.
Godse, described as a nationalist and right wing Hindu, had blamed Gandhi for the partitioning of India and for his accommodating attitude towards Muslims, and had shot the founder of modern India dead at 5.17 pm on January 30, 1948.
History shows that between 1934 and 1948, Gandhi had survived at least five life attempts, though the sixth one had proved fatal.
Five life attempts against Gandhi were made in 1934, during the months of July and September 1944, September 1946 and on January 20, 1948. Godse had shot Gandhi thrice in the chest from a point blank range and was hanged to death executed by hanging along with an accomplice Narayan Apte, at Ambala Jail in November 1949.
canada goose Jawaharlal Nehru and Gandhi’s two sons had tried for commutation of the death sentence for the defendants, but to no avail. canada goose

Canada Goose Outlet Indian Premier Modi too had begun his early political career as a member of the RSS, which was temporarily banned following Gandhi’s assassination. But as investigators could find no evidence that the RSS had formally sponsored or even had prior knowledge of Godse’s plot to kill Gandhi, the ban was lifted in 1949. Canada Goose Outlet
One of Nathuram Godse’s canada goose outlet store quebec brothers, Gopal Godse, had later claimed that the whole Godse family (including his other brothers Dattatreya sand Govind) was affiliated and associated with the RSS.
During March this year, Congress had accused the BJP led coalition government in the state of Goa of dropping Gandhi’s birth anniversary (Gandhi Jayanti) from its official canada goose outlet list of official holidays.
uk canada goose outlet Quoting the official gazette listing “commercial and industrial” holidays for 2015, Congress spokesperson Durgadas Kamat had said Gandhi’s birthday had been dropped from the list of official holidays. uk canada goose outlet
Congress spokesman had opined: “This clearly shows the hidden agenda of the BJP Government. This seems like it is just the beginning. Hope the government does not have holidays on Nathuram Godse’s birth anniversary in the future.”
Earlier, the January 30, 2015 edition of the “Washington Post” had stated: “For several weeks now, a small Hindu fringe group in India has been attracting attention around the world because of its plans to erect a bust in honor of Nathuram Godse. Organizers had chosen Friday, the 67th anniversary of the freedom fighter’s death, as the big day. canada goose outlet london They had a bust of assassin Godse ready to go and had even conducted a special purification ritual at the temple spot in the northern city of Meerut. They demanded that Friday be declared as a “day of courage” across India, to mark what they regard was Godse’s brave act.”
Canada Goose sale However, as the “Washington Post” had reported, the pro Godse stalwarts were prohibited from leaving their office to implement the plan. Canada Goose sale
The American newspaper had added: “Police, fearing that the move could prompt community tension, also sealed the site with ropes and stuck a prohibitory notice on the wall that barred any installation activity. The move has confounded many in India and around the world. It would be like a group of Americans threatening to erect a statue of James Earl Ray, who killed Martin Luther King, or John Wilkes Booth, who assassinated Abraham Lincoln. Yet this is not the first time the group has vented its desire to elevate Godse. They did the same when Modi’s Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party canada goose outlet new york was last in power more than a decade ago.”
The pro Godse activists consider him a patriot and even a martyr because they think he had killed the man they hold responsible for the country’s violent partition into Hindu majority India and Muslim majority Pakistan in 1947.
In December 2014, Sakshi Maharaj, a lawmaker from Modi’s party, had called Godse a patriot. However a day later he had to apologise due to loud opposition.
The way certain events are unfolding in India must surely be a matter of concern for many Indians because Narendra Modi’s policies are beyond comprehension https://www.canadagooseparka.biz and his priorities are strange. Even if he wants to transform a secular India to a Hindu majority state, violence and extremism should be avoided but the world’s largest democracy is already haunted by the numerous separatist movements flourishing on its soil.
It can thus safely be assumed that unleashing his canada goose outlet Hindutva agenda, Modi is visibly transforming a somewhat secular India into a state that believes in suppressing the minorities.
Canada Goose Jackets Policies of expediency, tolerance and co existence should instead have been followed. Modi’s chief priority should have been the well being of his people. He is instead instigating communal violence during his own rule a precedent that is hard to find if one studies the history of mankind because no leader no matter how good or bad he is loves to see infighting, unrest or chaos within the area within his command Canada Goose Jackets.
