Nathuram Godse was arrested immediately after he assassinated Gandhiji, based on a F. The trial, which was held in camera, began on May 27, and concluded on February 10, He was sentenced to death. An appeal to the Punjab High Court, then in session at Simla, did not find favour and the sentence was upheld. The statement that you are about to read is the last made by Godse before the Court on the May 5, Such was the power and eloquence of this statement that one of the judges, G.

Born in a devotional Brahmin family, I instinctively came to revere Hindu religion, Hindu history and Hindu culture. I had, therefore, been intensely proud of Hinduism as a whole. As I grew up I developed a tendency to free thinking unfettered by any superstitious allegiance to any isms, political or religious.

That is why I worked actively for the eradication of untouchability and the caste system based on birth alone. I openly joined RSS wing of anti-caste movements and maintained that all Hindus were of equal status as to rights, social and religious and should be considered high or low on merit alone and not through the accident of birth in a particular caste or profession.

I used publicly to take part in organized anti-caste dinners in which thousands of Hindus, Brahmins, Kshatriyas, Vaisyas, Chamars and Bhangis participated. We broke the caste rules and dined in the company of each other.

I have read the speeches and writings of Ravana, Chanakiya, Dadabhai Naoroji, Vivekanand, Gokhale, Tilak, along with the books of ancient and modern history of India and some prominent countries like EnglandFranceAmerica and Russia.

Moreover I studied the tenets of Socialism and Marxism. But above all I studied very closely whatever Veer Savarkar and Gandhiji had written and spoken, as to my mind these two ideologies have contributed more to the moulding of the thought and action of the Indian people during the last thirty years or so, than any other single factor has done.

All this reading and thinking led me to believe it was my first duty to serve Hindudom and Hindus both as a gdse and as a world citizen. To secure the freedom and to safeguard the just interests of some thirty crores million of Hindus would automatically constitute the freedom and the well-being of all Indiaone fifth of human race. This conviction led me naturally to devote myself to the Hindu Sanghtanist ideology nsthuram programme, which alone, I godes to believe, could win and preserve the national independence of Hindustanmy Motherland, and enable her goddse render true service to humanity as well.

His activities for public awakening were phenomenal in their intensity and were reinforced by the slogan of truth and non-violence which he paraded ostentatiously before the country. No sensible or enlightened person could object to those slogans.

In fact there is nothing new or original in them. They are implicit in every constitutional public movement. But it is nothing but a mere dream if you imagine that the bulk of mankind is, or can ever become, capable of scrupulous adherence to these lofty principles in its normal life from day to day.

I could never conceive that an armed resistance to an aggression is unjust. I would consider it a religious and moral duty to resist and, if possible, to overpower such an enemy by use of force. It is my firm belief that in dubbing Rama, Krishna and Arjuna as guilty of violence, the Mahatma betrayed a total ignorance of godes springs of human action.

In more recent history, it was the heroic fight put up by Chhatrapati Shivaji that first checked and eventually destroyed the Muslim tyranny in India. It was absolutely essentially for Shivaji to overpower and kill an aggressive Afzal Khan, failing which he would have lost his own life. He was, paradoxical as it may appear, a violent pacifist who brought untold calamities on the country in the name of truth and non-violence, while Rana Pratap, Shivaji and the Guru will remain enshrined in the hearts of their countrymen for ever for the freedom they brought to them.


The accumulating provocation of thirty-two years, culminating in his last pro-Muslim fast, at last goaded me to the conclusion that the existence of Gandhi should be brought to an end immediately. Gandhi had done very good in South Africa to uphold the rights and well-being of nathursm Indian community there.

But when he finally returned to India he developed a subjective mentality under which he alone was to be the final judge of what was right or wrong. If the country wanted his leadership, it had to accept his infallibility; if it did not, he would stand aloof from the Congress and carry on his own way.

Against such an attitude there can be no halfway house. Either Congress had to surrender its will to his and had to be content with playing second fiddle to all his eccentricity, whimsicality, metaphysics and primitive vision, or it had to carry on without him. He alone was the Judge of everyone and every thing; he was the master brain guiding the civil disobedience movement; goddse other could know the technique of that movement.

He alone knew when to begin and when to zutobiography it. Thus, the Mahatma became the judge and jury in his own cause. These childish insanities and obstinacies, autobiograpphy with a most severe austerity of life, ceaseless work and lofty character made Gandhi formidable and irresistible.

Many people thought that his politics were irrational but they had either to withdraw from the Autoboography or place their intelligence at his feet to do with as he liked.

In a position of such absolute irresponsibility Gandhi was guilty of blunder after blunder, failure after failure, disaster after disaster. It is quite obvious that Hindi govse the most prior claim to be accepted as the premier language.

In the beginning of his career in IndiaGandhi gave a great impetus aytobiography Hindi but as he found that the Muslims did not like it, he became a champion of what is called Hindustani. Everybody in India knows that there is no language called Hindustani; it has no grammar; it has no vocabulary. It is a mere dialect, it is spoken, but not written. But in his desire to please the Muslims he insisted that Hindustani alone should be the national language of India.

Why I Assassinated Mahatma Gandhi by Nathuram Godse

His blind followers, of course, supported him and the so-called hybrid language began to be used. The nathurram and purity of the Hindi language was to be prostituted to please the Muslims. All his experiments autobiographhy at the expense of the Hindus. From August onwards the private armies of the Muslim League began a massacre of the Hindus. The then Viceroy, Lord Wavell, though distressed at what was happening, would not use his powers under the Government of India Act of to prevent the rape, murder and arson.

The Hindu blood began to flow from Bengal to Karachi with some retaliation by the Hindus. Lord Wavell had to resign as he could not bring about a settlement and he was succeeded by Lord Mountbatten. King Log was followed by King Stork. The Congress which had boasted of fodse nationalism and socialism secretly accepted Pakistan literally at the point of the bayonet and abjectly surrendered to Jinnah.

India was vivisected and one-third of the Indian territory became foreign land to us from August 15, Lord Mountbatten came to autoblography described in Congress circles as the greatest Viceroy and Governor-General this country ever had. The official date for handing over power was fixed for June 30,but Mountbatten with his ruthless surgery gave us a gift of vivisected India ten months in advance.

Why I Assassinated Mahatma Gandhi

When top leaders of Congress, with the consent of Gandhi, divided and tore the country — which we consider a deity of worship — my mind was filled with direful anger. One of the conditions imposed by Gandhi for his breaking of the fast unto death related to the mosques in Delhi occupied by the Hindu refugees.

But when Hindus in Pakistan were subjected to violent attacks he did not so much as utter a single nathuran to protest and censure the Pakistan Government or the Muslims concerned. Gandhi was shrewd enough to know that while undertaking a fast unto death, had he imposed for its break some autobiographt on the Muslims in Pakistanthere would have been found hardly any Muslims who could have shown some grief if the fast had ended in his death.

It was for this reason that he purposely avoided imposing any condition on the Muslims. He was fully aware of from the experience that Jinnah was not at all perturbed or influenced by his fast and the Muslim League hardly attached any value to the inner voice of Gandhi.


Gandhi is being referred to as the Father of naathuram Nation. But if that is so, he had failed his paternal duty inasmuch as he has acted very treacherously to the nation by his consenting to the partitioning of it. I stoutly maintain that Gandhi has failed in his duty.

He has proved to be the Father of Pakistan. Briefly speaking, I thought to myself and foresaw I shall be totally ruined, and the only thing I could expect from the people would be nothing but hatred and that I shall have lost all my honour, even more valuable than my life, if I were to kill Gandhiji. But at goddse same time I felt that the Indian politics in the absence of Gandhiji would surely be proved practical, able to retaliate, and would be powerful with armed forces.

No doubt, my own future would be totally ruined, but the nation would autobiograpy saved from the inroads of Pakistan. People may even call me and dub me as devoid of any sense or foolish, but the nation would be free to follow the course founded on the reason autobiograpuy I consider to be necessary for sound nation-building. After having fully considered the question, I took the final decision in the matter, but I did not speak about it to anyone whatsoever.

I took courage in both my hands and I did fire the shots at Gandhiji on 30th Januaryon the prayer-grounds of Birla House.

I do say that my shots were fired at the person whose policy and action had brought rack and ruin and destruction to millions of Hindus. There godsee no legal machinery by which such an offender could be brought to book and for this nathueam I fired those fatal shots. I bear no ill will towards anyone individually but I do say that I had no goxse for the present government owing to their policy which was unfairly favourable towards the Muslims.

But at the same time I could clearly see that the policy was entirely due to the presence of Gandhi. I now stand before the court to accept the full share of my responsibility for what I have done and aitobiography judge would, of course, pass kf me such orders of sentence as may be considered proper.

But Nathyram would like to add that I do not desire any mercy to be shown to me, nor do I wish that anyone else should beg for mercy on my behalf. My confidence about the moral side of my action has not been shaken even by the criticism levelled against it on all sides. I have no doubt that honest writers of history will weigh my act and find the true value thereof some day in future.

The Nobel committee did the right thing not to award Gandhi with the peace prise. Nathu ram sahib did a great job I would if possible will give him bharat ratan or father of nation instead of a man who autlbiography not able to walk and support himself and had shoulders of two women instead of stick or men…. Who confess raped his neice a man who cheated society when Indira got. Pregnant before marriage by feroz shah Gandhi changed named to Feroz shah Gandhi….

And a biggest supporter of Muslim despite their rejection… LIST is big for more references read freedom. I just wonder, why did this fool not consider killing Jinna, who was the root cause of the demand for partition and the aftermath of partition of India!!. Jathuram last statement reveals, how much he was biased already against Gandhiji from beginning and not at all against Jinna?

If what he have written godsr true, then I too, would have found his actions justified and worthy of impeccable honor for his heroism.

At autohiography time I am going to do my breakfast, later than having my breakfast coming again to read additional news. A nationalist who eliminated a person who had parochial mind set against Hindus for the larger good of Nation was sent to Gallows. There is only one way to overcome hatred and evil, that is love.

Not everyone is great enough to understand this. Thank you Amit Agrawal. Those commending Nathuram Godse with all due respect, do not know what they say. I am surprised these supporters autohiography not see that Nathuram eventually became what he accused Gandhi of- the judge and jury. These few historical people who spent entire their life to unite India.
