We may doubt and debate if Gandhi understood meaning of taqiyya and kitman. But his commentaries, observations and reactions during this period do indicate that he practiced these to perfection.
Sadhvi Pragya calling Godse a patriot: he was, is and will remain as a patriot and Kamal Hassan (actor, politician and head of a political party) calling Godse, a Hindu terrorist – both are reprehensible.
Gandhi in spite of many wrong doings will be called a torch bearer of freedom, in the same way Godse’s contribution as a freedom fighter can’t be set aside.
We have been breaking our backs with the burden of Godse’s actions but it was never our weight to carry.
