Union minister Giriraj Singh calls Gandhi’s assassin Nathuram Godse as “worthy son of India”

Union minister Giriraj Singh on Friday described Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi’s assassin Nathuram Godse as a a worthy son of India.

Singh made the statement while interacting with the media in Chhattisgarh’s Bastar district.

“If Godse was Gandhi’s assassin, he was also a worthy son of India,” Singh said.

Nathuram Godse on January 30, 1948, gunned down a India’s independence hero Mahatma Gandhi.

“He (Godse) was born in India. He was not an invader like Aurangzeb and Babar. And those who feel happy to call themselves children of Babar cannot be true worthy sons of India,” he added.

Aurangzeb was born at the Dahod Fort in present-day Gujarat.

The Hindutva leader made the statement in the backdrop of tensions in Maharashtra’s Kolhapur, where a right wing protest against social media posts about Aurangzeb and 18th-century Mysore ruler Tipu Sultan turned violent.
