Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Varun Gandhi expressed his displeasure over the trend of ‘Nathuram Godse Zindabad’ on Twitter and said that such people are embarrassing the country. In fact, on Saturday, on the 152nd birth anniversary of the Father of the Nation, Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, Varun Gandhi paid tribute to him. Let us tell you that on 30 January 1948, Nathuram Godse shot and killed Mahatma Gandhi.
Varun Gandhi tweeted, ‘India has always been a spiritual superpower, but it is the Mahatma who articulated the spiritual foundation of our country through his very existence and gave us a moral authority, which is our greatest strength even today. Those who tweet Godse Zindabad are irresponsibly shaming the country.
