Unfortunately, when the debate is polarised between the extremes of black & white, it does not do justice to the complex personality of #Savarkar as a man, revolutionary, reformer, #Hindutva ideologue & an accused in the assassination of #MahatmaGandhi.
What makes #Savarkar stand out among his contemporaries is his strong hero complex bordering on narcissism, and the extreme and often contradictory elements of his personality.

It is claimed that #VDSavarkar had no relationship with the #RSS. But, this is not borne out of historical evidence. Read this thread to know more.

While in the Ratnagiri jail, where Savarkar was shifted in 1921 from the Cellular jail in the Andamans, he wrote his seminal work ‘Essentials of Hindutva,’ which laid the foundations of Hindutva as an ideology.
It laid emphasis on cultural nationalism as against a territorial one, and said that India was for the Hindus alone, and not for the Muslims or the Christians.

Since January 2023, I have launched a weekly series on @mumbaitak (thanks to @sahiljoshii) where I speak in #Marathi on little-known yet significant episodes from #IndianHistory. This is a thread with the playlists.
Do watch and comment.

The first episode with over 2.6 lakh views was on the sensational #TheBawlaMurderCase (1925) which led to the abdication of an Indian king. You can buy my book on this crime here:

#MahatmaGandhi had a complex relationship with Maharashtra, where his mentor Gopal Krishna Gokhale hailed from.

This thread is about #Gandhi and his relationship with #Marathi (and #Maharashtra)

#Maharashtra produced some of his staunchest supporters like Acharya Vinoba Bhave and Sitaram ‘Appasaheb’ Patwardhan, who was referred to as the ‘Konkan Gandhi,’ and his most bitter critics, like Dr #BabasahebAmbedkar and V.D. #Savarkar.
Eventually, a man from #Maharashtra--#NathuramGodse, killed #Gandhi.

Nathuram Godse was a hindutva advocate, who strictly believed in preserving all religions which were born on this land (matrbhoomi as he liked to call it). Mind u, these religions included Sikhism, Buddhism, Jainism along with sanathan dharma.
Hindutva isn't a religious identity, rather it broadly classified all people who's religions were born in Hindustan under a broad category..Mohandas Karamchand believed in appeasement politics..
According to Godse,Gandhi's ideals of Truth and Non-violence were good for a perfect world,in this world,where our land had been attacked by Islamic rulers and many of our hindustanis were forcefully converted to islam,violence was the only way to counter this barrage of Invaders

In which @HinduAmerican exposes its true colors. For HAF, the Mughals were the enemies. Just why? Half the Mughals were born in India. They were Indians. But Hindutva bigots like HAF see Muslims as non-Indians. In true sense HAF is Godse’s ideological progeny.
You never ever hear @HinduAmerican say one word about the brutal violence being carried out against Muslims and Christians in India by Sanghi mobs. You have to assume that HAF supports all this bigoted violence by Hindu extremists in India.
While @HinduAmerican claims to follow #MahatmaGandhi why doesn’t HAF ever talk about Gandhi’s vision of a composite Hindu-Muslim India? What is HAF’s view on the @RSSorg whose member #NathuramGodse killed Gandhi?

This thread is on a little-known attempt by a British police officer to assassinate #MahatmaGandhi at #Pune in 1942 & some previous bids on #Gandhiji's life.

On 30 January 1948, three bullets fired by #NathuramGodse claimed the life of #MahatmaGandhi as he was walking to his prayer meeting at the Birla House in #NewDelhi. However, even before that fateful day, there were multiple attempts to assassinate Gandhi.
In 1897, Gandhi was assaulted by a mob of Europeans in Natal. He was attacked by a group of Pathans in South Africa (February 1908). In 1914, some Muslims were upset that clauses in a bill that formalized the Gandhi-General Smuts agreement had denied polygamy, which amounted to

Godse gave a detailed explanation for his act of assassination of Gandhi during his high-profile trail held at the Red Fort at Delhi. The statement however was kept away from public by the hegemony of the Indian National Congress.

A #Thread on Nathuram Godse's final address in the Punjab High Court on 5 May, 1949. Some of the excerpts/summary are presented here. #GandhiPunyatithi
'Born in a devotional Brahmin family, I instinctively revered Hindu religion, history & culture. As one inclined to free thinking, I worked for eradication of untouchability & birth-based caste system. I openly joined RSS wing of anti-caste movements & maintained that,
..all Hindus are equal. I studied very closely whatever Veer Savarkar & Gandhi had written or spoken, because they influenced Indians the most in last 30 yrs. All the reading led me to believe it was my 1st duty to serve Hindudom & Hindus as patriot.'

காந்தி காய்ச்சலோ, வயிற்று வலியோ வந்து சாகவில்லை.மதவெறி அமைப்பால் படுகொலை செய்யப்பட்டார்.

அவரைக் கொன்றவனின் அதே சித்தாந்தத்தை வரித்துக் கொண்டு கொலைகாரர்களை 'தேசபக்தர்கள்' என்று சொல்லிக் கும்பிடுபவர்களுக்கு காந்தி என்கிற சொல்லை உச்சரிக்கக் கூட அருகதை இல்லை..

காந்தியை நினைவு கூர்வது கதர் அணிவதோ, ராட்டை சுற்றுவதோ, குப்பையே இல்லாத இடத்தில் குப்பை போடச் சொல்லி விட்டு டிப்டாப்பாக உடையணிந்து மீடியா வெளிச்சத்தின் முன்பு பொறுக்குவதைப் போல் நடிப்பதோ அல்ல.

காந்தியின் அடிப்படை மதிப்பீடுகள் அகிம்சை, மதநல்லிணக்கம், நுகர்வு..

வெறியற்ற எளிமையான வாழ்க்கை, மற்றமையை உருவாக்காத ஆன்மீகம்(ஏன் கடைசி காலத்தில் வர்ணாசிரமத்தையே காந்தி எதிர்த்தார்) ஆகியவையே ஆகும்.இவற்றை நம் மண்ணில் நீடிக்கச் செய்வதே காந்தியை நினைவு கூர்வதாகும்.

காந்தியின் சித்தாந்தத்திற்கு நேர் எதிர் நிலை கொண்டவை மதவெறி..

This is 2nd october we all know its birthday of Gandhi who is known in India as a man of principle,
According to historians his three principles were there.
1- Dont see bad
2- Dont do bad
3- Dont hear bad.
Firat read this thread and then decide about him was he overrated or under
History of Gandhi in India starts from the year 1915 but I will start from the year 1900 Boer war and he was in SA as assistant superintendent of the Indian volunteer stretcher-bearer corps.

about Boer war he wrote in his auto biography :- 👇

When the war was declared, my personal sympathies were all with the Boers, but my loyalty to the British rule drove me to participation with the British in that war. I felt that, if I demanded rights as a British citizen, it was also my duty,

#NathuramGodse, The Patriot.

You attained veergati at the age of 39, by the hands of country which you defended.

There are millions and millions of Mandabhuddi and Durbhuddi Hindus who still believe you were wrong & Gandhi was right, and they are going to that extent
where they are questioning your patriotism.

Disregarding the fact that your future would be ruined & that you would be hated for generations to come, you went ahead and achieved what you felt will be good for the country and you need to know that those who are questioning you,
your patriotism have sold themselves and their motherland for Penny's.

To you, your moral duty was more important than your life. You knew that without Gandhi the country would prosper.
Yes, the country prospered slowly.
Before being sentenced to death YOU, #NathuramGodse took

३० जानेवारी १९४८ रोजी झालेल्या गांधी वधाचा दोषी पंडित नथुराम गोडसे यांच्या समर्थन करणारे किंवा त्यांना शिव्या देणारे अनेक जण आपल्याला दिसतील पण याबाबतीत
गांधीहत्येच्या निमित्ताने माझे वैयक्तिक विचार मी येथे मांडतो!
काहीजणांना हा थ्रेड गांधी हत्येचे समर्थन करणारा वाटेल पण इथे कोठेही त्यांच्या हत्येचं समर्थन नाहीये!

आयुष्यभर स्वतः चे विचार, स्वतः चे नियम, स्वतः ची तत्वे हे जपण्याच्या नादात या अखंड हिंदू राष्ट्राची अधोगती यांच्याच चरख्याच्या सुताने विणली गेली,

गांधी कोणाला कितीही अहिंसेचे पुरस्कर्ते वाटो, पण सर्वात मोठा नरसंहार हा याच ढोंगी दुरात्म्यामुळेचं घडला,
अखंड देश तीन भागात विभागला गेला,
मुस्लिमांचे लांगुलचालन करण्यात यांचा हात कोणीही धरू शकणार नाही
मग् ते खिलाफत चळवळीला पाठिंबा देणे असो अथवा फाळणीच्या मागणीला समर्थन!

नथुराम विनायकराव गोडसे चा जन्म 19मे,1910 ला झाला.त्यांच्या जन्मावेळीस भारतात क्रांतिकारी चळवळी चालु झाल्या होत्या.थोड्या कालावधीने गांधीजीं चे भारतात आगमन झाले आणि त्यांनी 1920 ला 'असहकार आंदोलन' पुकारले.नथुरामचे वडील विनायक वामनराव गोडसे हे पोस्टल ऑफिसमध्ये कामाला होते.
त्यांच्या आईचे नाव लक्ष्मी.नथुराम चे 'नथुराम' नाव पडण्यामागे एक गोष्ट आहे.त्यांचे खरे नाव 'रामचंद्र' होते.पण नथुराम जन्माला यायच्यापुर्वी ३ मुले जन्माला आली आणि अल्पावधीतच मरण पावली.घरच्यांना वाटले की आपल्याला कोणतातरी शाप असावा त्यामुळे मुले दगावत आहेत..म्हणुन त्यांनी 'रामचंद्र' Image
