Was Nathuram Godse a Patriot?

BJP MP Sakshi Maharaj called Godse a patriot in parliament, and there was, and still is, much hoo-ha!

Patriotism is a point of view. To us Indians, Bhagat Singh was a patriot. To the then rulers of this country – the British – he was a terrorist. So was Chandra Shekar Azad. To Akbar, Rana Pratap was a terrorist. To Aurangzeb, Shivaji was a terrorist.

We have been hyped into believing that Gandhi baba is the father of the nation. Gandhi baba was the next door neighbor of my great grandfather’s house in Rajkot, Gujarat, on a lane still known as Dr. Bam Lane.

Few months ago (June.2014), I asked a question to a hall full of 372 MBA students in Pune:

HOW MANY OF YOU BELiEVE THAT GANDHi-BABA IS THE FATHER OF THE NATiON?

Only 18 (out of 372) raised their hands – that is less than 5%!

I was not surprised. I ask this question to my students every year and the results have been the same over the years. These were students of age group 20-23 in the top MBA kolej in Pune.

I teach in many MBA colleges in Pune including Symbiosis. I was also visiting professor in BITS Pilani for ten years. Every year I teach about 1500 students, mostly in Pune . I have been teaching since 1988 and my student base today would be @ 30,000 spread all over the world.

I asked about Sakshi Maharaj’s comment on Nathuram Godse on facebook.

Then I asked on facebook, (where I have 36000 friends & followers):

According to you Who is father of the Nation (India)?
<1>Chanakya/Kautilya===330 BCE==2344 years ago.
<2>Chandragupta Maurya--326 BCE=2340 years ago.
>Emperor Ashoka--250 BCE=2264 years ago.
<4>Akbar Badshah--1600 AD==414 years ago
<5>Gandhi Baba--1948=66 years ago.
<6>Sardar Patel--1950==64 years ago.
<7>Any other? Give name.

Nathuram Godse had no personal enmity with Gandhi baba. Godse’s Logic and thought process show that he was a very brilliant analyst. You can read Nathuram Godse’s own statement during the trial at

Now decide for yourself whether Nathuram Godse was a patriot.
