It was a time when India just retrieved its freedom. To mark the Independence the city of Delhi was also caught in euphoria of the joy of celebration attuned with the rest of the country men. People thronged at the heart of the metro-city, that was draped in the luster of lights .The people were chanting with free voice,” victory be to Mahatma (Mahatma ki jai ho).” One after another, Jaharlal Neheru, Rajendra Prashad appeared into the scene.The horse of time was galloping into the junction of British India and Independent india. But, where was Gandhi? There descended an atmosphere of utter excitement in the constitution hall. Celebration and celebration. The entire constitution hall was filled with the humming of Mahatma Gandhi’s appraisal/accolade. Then, Mahatma Gandhi himself was absorbed in that feverish festivity Gandhi was then at Beliaghata, in a deserted dimly house,far alienated from the dazzling-city-lights. Hit by riot the inhabitant of that house had already fled, Gandhi was then stayed there in the gloominess of that Hydar-e-Manjil to radiate gleams of hope and optimism into the minds of people, avowed and unwavering.
This was Mahatma Gandhi.Romarola in 1924 authored an autobiography on Mahatma Gandhi, there he wrote, it is certain that , like Jesus Christ and Buddha the philosophy and ideology of Gandhiji will conquer the times. After 20 years, Einstein praised Gandhi profusely. When other leaders were busy with the of power, status and honors, when rest of the country-men were busy celebrating, this great personality chose to keep himself busy in a mission to solve the problems of the common people, and for their sake he even sacrificed his entire life.
An exceptional persona was he in the context of Indian politics. As the Indian freedom movement was escalating, the venomous bite of the divide and rule was also lashing out with more force. Both, the Hindu and Muslim were caught up in a blood-thirsty duel.
News came from Noakhali that riot hit the area. Only 30 percent Hindu and 70 percent Muslim, so the security of the Hindu society was at stake. Gandhiji asked about the financial detail of the area.When he was answered that, 70 percent lands were possessed by the Hindu and 30 percent by the Muslim, he said discrimination/discrepancy is the root of antipathy/hatred. Shrinking the gap of discrimination to achieve equality among human beings and thus to bring people closer to each other was his sworn-objective. And out of this swearing he raised voice against untouchability. No one is small or big according to his/her lineage. In order to establish this truth he embraced the Shudra and named them Harijon. There remains controversy over the underlying cause of partition. Some even blame Gandhiji for the partition. But, it was he who would often pay visit to the residency of Jinnah with a motif – how to retain integrity of India maintaining balance with the demands and needs of the muslims. Though Congress leaders took it as insult, he never felt the same. Not only he did strive for to obliterate caste discrimination, Gandhiji also stood against the unequal treatment with the woman as well. All the time he was for the upliftment of the women and against the overpowering mind-set of the patriarchal society. He showed an uncompromised tenacity to the bigotry of Hindu society. Perhaps, this was why he drew the wrath of the Brahminical force. The reason behind his killing is very obvious. A beast in the name of Nathuram Godse shot him at the chest and it was not an individual attack. There was an organized force behind him. Attempts were made thrice before to assassin Gandhi. First time it was in 1934, in Pune. At that time, he was carrying out movement triggered against the practice of untouchability. In 1944 an attack was also aimed at him. And it is presumed that this attack was mastered by Hindu Maha Sabah. In 1946, when Gandhiji was travelling by train an attempt was made to kill him by causing explosion.
Everytime the attack came from the far-right groups. They are representative of Nathuram Godse . Belongs to Maratha chitpaban Brahmin community. Chauvinism is their main religion. They are the worshippers of Nazism and fascisim. We are the chosen one and rest are the fallen ones; this is their philosophical stand. We are the higher cast so we hav the privilege to and the rest will live s our servants, will live only to serve us, it was their ultimate viewpoint. The philosophy of Gandhi was a tight slap against this ideology. His satyagrah (seeking for the truth) and ahimsa(non-violence ) movement created such an lasting impact that if that continued to persist in free-India, it would have annihilated the cste-system breaking all the barriers. There was no way out other than killing Gandhi to save their castist system, so they were always alarmed to, in the name of protecting traditionalism. So they were desperately willing to kill him.
In spite of having knowledge about this, Patel, Neheru paid no heed towards Gandhi. No measures were taken to safeguard his life from the looming danger. Neheru cried piteously after he saw the scarred blood soaked deceased body of Mahatma. Through Radio speech, the country heard that cry. But behind his assassination their irresponsibility was as clear as broad day light. In the aftermath of the death of Gandhi, to a particular group of people Nathuram Godse turned to a hero. Not Nathuram, his actual name is Ramchandra. Vinayak Godse was obsessed in prejudice, so he pierced his son’s ears.He was also made to wear nose-ring. And from this nose-ring he got his name Nathuram. He did not even consider the RSS to be an organization working for the Hindutva cause. So, he formed a new organization ‘ Hindu Rashtra Dal’.
In the hands of this ultra-right groups the father of our Nation, Mahatma Gandhi had to die. The intolerance killed Gandhi that same intolerance is now gaining stronghold all over India. They are creating an anarchic atmosphere for the release of a single movie. Rohit Vemula, Kanhaiya Kumar, Akhlaq, Zunaid, numberless Dalitand minorities are exposed before their aggression. The country is overshadowed with violence and aggression. To highlight the ideology of the Father of Nation when will his sons wake up? This country, an epicenter of pilgrimage, the land of Mahamilan is today waiting for a Mahatma.
