Hazaribag Deputy Commissioner Bhuvanesh Pratap Singh said “a new statue will be erected there soon, as the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi is being celebrated.”

He said an inquiry has been ordered to identify the culprits and a magistrate along with policemen deployed at the spot.

It is to be noted that Gandhi was assassinated By Nathu Ram Godse who shot Gandhi in the chest three times at point blank range in New Delhi on 30 January 1948.

Godse was a Hindu nationalism and RSS member, who believed Gandhi to have favored the political demands of India’s Muslims during the partition of India.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ruling BJP which is the successor of the RSS has been trying to degrade father of Indian nation ever-since it has come into power.

The BJP has been glorifying the assassin of the Gandhi who was opposed to Hindutva philosophy.

BJP member parliament Pragya Thakur referred to Gandhi’s assassin Nathuram Godse as a “Patriot” during a debate in Lok Sabha, the lower house of India’s bicameral Parliament.
