“We have been saying since ages that Nathuram Godse is the actual hero, who, if he had his way, would have never allowed the division of our motherland. By killing Gandhi he did a favour to us, otherwise Gandhi, due to his policies of Muslim appeasement, would have allowed further divisions of the country,” said Mr. Sharma.

Pandit Ashok, an old-time associate of the Hindu Mahasabha, said the "contributions" of Godse should be included in school textbooks.

Madan Acharya, a senior functionary of the Hindu Mahasabha, said, “We are planning to send a memorandum to the President and the Prime Minister of India demanding that a chapter be included in school textbooks to make the future generations aware about Godse’s immense contributions to today’s India".

To start with Godse’s book "Gandhi Vadh Kyun (Why I killed Gandhi)” and his brother Gopal Godse’s book “Gandhi Vadh Aur Main (Gandhi's assassination and me)" will be available on the website.

The Hindu Mahasabha organised a puja on ‘Balidan Diwas’ across its 120 offices in the country.
