Gwalior: The Hindu Mahasabha stirred up the controversy over Nathuram Godse yet again by worshipping him on his “70th sacrifice day” on Friday. An FIR has been filed against one of the workers of the outfit.
Congress Committee Secretary Ravindra Singh Chauhan in a complaint submitted at Kotwali police station said that while passing by Hindu Mahasabha office through Dalatganj at 4 pm, November 14, he saw one of the outfit leaders Naresh Batham was distributing pamphlets. According to an MP Breaking News report, Chauhan received one of the pamphlets in which he found Mahatma Gandhi to be described as the traitor and that his murderer as the biggest patriot.
Police have registered a case against Naresh Batham and his associates under section 154.
Gwalior has been a major centre of the Hindu Mahasabha activities since Independence and Nathuram Godse had acquired the pistol from Gwalior to kill Mahatma Gandhi. The Hindu Mahasabha activists in Gwalior have been worshipping Godse for many years and tried to install the statue in 2017, but the administration seized it and banned its installation.
