Why Nathuram Godse murdered Mahatma Gandhi (Mahatma Gandhi Punyatithi):-
Mahatma Gandhi was shot dead by Nathuram Godse on 30 January 1948. Godse had shot Bapu three times. Godse said that he was against the decision of Mahatma Gandhi, according to which Bapu wanted India to provide financial aid to Pakistan. Mahatma Gandhi had also kept a fast for giving help to Pakistan. After the incident, Godse was arrested and hanged on November 15, 1949, in Ambala Jail.
Mahatma Gandhi Ji’s contribution to India’s Independence (Mahatma Gandhi Punyatithi):-
Gandhi Ji taught the country the lesson of nonviolence and on the basis of this, he took independence from the British. Rabindranath Tagore has conferred him with the title of ‘Mahatma’ after the Champaran Satyagrah Movement. Since then, Gandhi was associated with the surname ‘Mahatma’. (Mahatma Gandhi Punyatithi) He has been led many movements like, Quit India Movement, the Non-Cooperation Movement, and Civil Disobedience Movement, which led India towards independence. But the question is what happened with Gandhi Ji that he became a freedom fighter. This story started after finishing his legal education in England. When Gandhi Ji returned to India after advocating, and he left for livelihood in South Africa due to the absence of opportunity in India. Here some incidents happened which has changed his mind and thinking.
The life-changing point after visiting South Africa:-
This was the period from 1893 to 1914 when Gandhi Ji was inspired to become a freedom fighter from an ordinary person. At that time, in South Africa, the atmosphere of apartheid was at its peak. Gandhi Ji also went there and he had to become a victim of it. Once Gandhi Ji was traveling by rail in South Africa, despite being Gandhi’s first-class ticket, he was asked to go to third class. The people there did not stop even. He also threw Gandhi Ji out of the train.
Due to all these activities, somewhere in Gandhi’s mind, the idea of the feeling of his country and love was rising. He began to feel how the people of the country are subjugated and see themselves humiliated every day and this is why Gandhi Ji returned to India from South Africa and contributed significantly to India’s independence. (Mahatma Gandhi Punyatithi) Bapu is not in the world today, but his thoughts are still alive in the veins of the country. Bapu’s thoughts on Hindi, love, religion, and cleanliness are relevant even today.
