Hindu Mahasabha to release “Desh Bhakt Godse” on Jan 30


New Delhi: The film based on Nathuram Godse titled Desh Bhakt Nathuram Godse (Patriot Nathuram Godse) will reportedly release on January 30. 

The film will be released by Hindu Mahasabha, who believe that the coming generations need to know and be inspired by Godse’s commitment towards nationalism.

Reportedly, after requesting the Central Government to install Nathuram Godse’s bust at public places across the country, right-wing Hindu group Akhil Bharatiya Hindu Mahasabha is now planning to release a film sketching the life of Mahatma Gandhi’s assassin.

The film will be released on the same day when Godse gunned down Mahatma Gandhi in 1948.

According to the Hindu Mahasabha general secretary Munna Kumar Sharma, “The documentary film, still in the making, will not only draw attention to Godse’s “immense contribution to nationalism” but also emphasize how “Gandhi was working against Hindus and the people of India.”

“A distorted picture of Godse has been created in the media because of the Congress rule in the country. Now, we have a sympathetic government under Narendra Modi. What better time to make corrections to that negative portrayal of him (Godse),” added Mr. Sharma. 

However, few days back Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, had issued a stern warning that any attempts to honour Godse would not be tolerated and result in strict administrative action.

The statement was followed by the event celebrated by some Hindutva groups in Mumbai’s Panvel area had celebrated on November 15, the day Godse was hanged in 1949.
