MEERUT: To commemorate November 15 - the day Godse was hanged - as 'balidan divas', the members of Akhil Bharatiya Hindu Mahasabha launched a website for "Nathuram Godse - The Real Forgotten Hero" on Sunday morning. The website, members say, has been put up on the internet so as to inform the general public about the "good deeds" that Godse - Mahatma Gandhi's killer - indulged in. The members of Hindu Mahasabha also conducted a havan, which took place in as many as 120 offices of the Hindu Mahasabha to mark Balidan Divas.

"We have launched this website so that the general public can enhance their knowledge about Godse and take their call on the character of Godse. Scanned copies of Nathuram Godse's 'Gandhi Vadh Kyu?' (Why Gandhi was killed) and his brother Gopal Godse's 'Gandhi Vadh aur main' book will be uploaded on the website and will be available for all to read," said Madan Acharya, president, Vishwa Hindupeeth, an offshoot of Hindu Mahasabha.

The website has been put on the internet and a six member IT team has been appointed for the purpose, who will engage in social media interactions related to Nathuram Godse.

"Nathuram Godse had killed Mahatma Gandhi due to his involvement in partition of the country. Godse was apprehensive that India would be divided into further more parts if Gandhi remains alive. To mark Godse's sacrifice, we have commemorated November 15 as 'Balidan Divas'. A havan to mark the same has been conducted in as many as 120 offices of Hindu Mahasabha in the entire country," said Munna Kumar Sharma, national general secretary, Hindu Mahasabha.

This has come months after the party's foiled attempt to erect the first Nathuram Godse bust in the country at their office on Meerut's Sharda Road. The place where the statue was to be erected was later sealed by the police to avoid any communal incident.

"We have also prepared a memorandum that will be set to the President of India via the district magistrate in which we demand that text books of students should include Nathuram Godse's life history too. In the memorandum, we also demand that India be converted into a Hindu rashtra," said Pandit Ashok Sharma, national vice-president, Hindu Mahasabha.

Though Hindu Mahasabha members had claimed that audio CDs of upcoming 'Godse' movie produced by one Santosh Rai, who is also a member of the party, will be distributed on November 15, it could not be done due to some technical fault in the CDs, which were returned.
