AAP hits out at Hindu Mahasabha, says glorification of Gandhi’s assassin shameful
The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has lashed out at the glorification of Nathuram Godse, the assassin of Mahatma Gandhi, by a right-wing fringe organisation. It has demanded registration of a criminal case against those who put up such posters, which it said, was “clearly aimed at disrupting communal harmony and peace in the national Capital.”
In a statement, AAP has also flayed the fringe organisation for putting up posters in the Capital to highlight the shameful deed of one of its activists, who had tried to create communal tension by spreading beef rumour being served at the Kerala House.
“It is beyond any reasonable understanding that how an individual or an organisation can make a nonsensical public statement about glorifying the role of Godse and can get away with it. Not only has the role of Nathuram Godse been glorified in posters of Hindu Mahasabha, the name of the individual who spread baseless and false rumour about food (beef) served at the Kerala House has also been mentioned,” the party said.
Targeting the Delhi Police, which is under the Home Ministry, the party said the “impartiality of the Delhi Police is under test in the eyes of the public and it must act without any delay against such nefarious elements.”
The AAP said the activities of the Hindu Mahasabha, which operates from the heart of New Delhi, need to be immediately curbed. The party added that “absurd” statements from organisations, such as Hindu Mahasabha “have been on the rise since the BJP came to power at the Centre in May
