Two days after the Akhil Bharatiya Hindu Mahasabha opened a library dedicated to Mahatma Gandhi’s assassin Nathuram Godse at its Gwalior office, the district authorities on Tuesday shut it down and seized its material over law and order concerns.
The district administration took action after the district magistrate imposed Section 144 of the Code of Criminal because complaints poured in on social media platforms.
The administration’s action came only two days after the Hindu Mahasabha inaugurated the Godse Gyanshala at Daulat Ganj. “A meeting was held with the members of the Hindu Mahasabha and the Gyanshala was shut down,” said sources.
According to sources, all the literature, posters, banners and other material were seized by the authority. The Godse Gyanshala was set up to “instill true nationalism” among the youth. The Hindutva Mahasabha said, “The library had literature on how Godse plotted the assassination along with his articles and speeches.”
