Congressmen demolish Nathuram Godse's bust in Jamnagar
The Hindu Sena activists had installed the bust at a Hanuman temple in Jamnagar on Monday, Godse's death anniversary, which is observed by certain sections like the Sena and the Hindu Mahasabbha. Godse was the assassin of Mahatma Gandhi and Congressmen call them "anti-national." On Tuesday morning, Digubha Jadeja, Jamnagar Congress president, reached the temple with his supporters and demolished the bust.

AHMEDABAD, Nov16: Congress leaders on Tuesday vandalised a bust of Nathuram Godse, Mahatma Gandhi's assassin, which was installed by Hindu Sena activists in Jamnagar on Monday. The Congressmen called the Sena workers "anti-national."

The Sena workers had installed the bust in the premises of a Hanuman temple in Jamnagar on Monday after the local authorities refused permission to install it in any public place. Monday was Godse's death anniversary, which was observed by the Hindu Mahasabha and Sena at several places.

On Tuesday morning, Digubha Jadeja, Jamnagar Congress president, reached the temple with his supporters and demolished the bust. Jadeja told Deccan Herald, "For the past two months, these handful of people from Hindu Sena have been putting up banners and posters promoting Godse, the killer of Mahatma Gandhi. On Monday, they even installed the statue. That's why we decided to remove it. How can we allow statue of Gandhi's killer. We are also going to file a police complaint against the Sena leaders."

Sena's Gujarat president Pratik Bhatt said they will file an FIR against the Congressmen.

Godse was sentenced to death on November 8, 1949 and was hanged at Ambala Central Jail on November 15, 1949. He had shot Mahatma Gandhi on January 30, 1948 while he was at his prayers at Birla House in Delhi. Godse, a self-styled nationalist, had fired three bullets at Gandhiji’s chest from a close range. He was arrested, tried and sentenced to death. Born in Pune, and named Ramachandra Vinayak Godse, 'Nathuram' had a strange upbringing.
