Nathuram Godse in his last statement before court said that his reasons for killing Gandhi were purely political. In my opinion, it was not politics that shaped his actions rather, it was his hatred of the secular ideology of Gandhi, the true Hindu spirit that he was finally opposed to. He tried to kill an ideology. But can an ideology be killed, I think no. The fact is that there is no action and no teaching of Gandhi that is exceptionable and this is why his global reputation as a politician has survived the decades intact.
