MP: Nathuram Godse library shut 2 days after opening

Jan 13, 2021 09:38 IST

Two days after the Akhil Bhartiya Hindu Mahasabha opened a library dedicated to Mahatma Gandhi’s assassin Nathuram Godse at its Gwalior office, district authorities on Tuesday shut it down and seized its material over law and order concerns. The crackdown came in the wake of widespread outrage over the Mahasabha's move to glorify the killer of of the Father of Nation. District officials seized all the literature, posters, banners and other material from the library. Apart from offering literature on the life and views of Godse, the library was to also hold lectures on Godse’s journey and Mahatma Gandhi’s “failure” to stop the Partition.
