Gopal Godse (1919-2005)was arevolutionary Hindu member of the Hindu Mahasabha. Till his final days, he felt no remorse for his stance on Mahatma Gandhi, and maintained that Gandhi was responsible for India's partition.
The assassin of Mahatma Gandhi, Nathuram Godse is likely one of the most debated personalities in the history of India. The opinions on his character are divided across the country-while some people believe him to be a traitor, others consider him to be truly patriotic and demand that temples be built in his honour. Such opposite reactions are bound to leave the common man confused about who Nathuram Godse really was. Was he a terrorist? Was he a traitor? Was he a professional assassin? If not, then why did he kill Gandhi? Why did he consider Gandhi to be responsible for India's partition? Moreover, did Gandhi really deceive the public in order to pacify Muslim leaders? After serving his sentence of lifetime imprisonment for knowing about Nathuram Godse's stand and thus being party to Mahatma Gandhi's assassination, Gopal Godse wrote this historical document upon his release from jail on 13 October 1964.
