DINDIGUL: The Akhil Bharat Hindu Mahasabha has resolved to install busts of Nathuram Vinayak Godse across the state, its national vice-president Rakesh Ranjan said here on Thursday.

Addressing media persons after the general body meeting of the Sabha here, Rakesh Ranjan termed Godse a real patriot and pointed out that Godse never tried to kill Mahatma Gandhi in a clandestine manner and had made open statement on why he did so.

He said the Sabha would submit a petition to the State Government for allocation of land for erecting Godse busts. “We would follow it up with a petition before the court. Otherwise, busts would be installed on the land owned by the Sabha’s members,” he said.

The Hindu leader said that it has been decided to convene meetings in the southern part of the country to create awareness on the freedom fighters whose names were given a burial by the Congress-led governments at the Centre.

Alleging that ‘myths and misconceptions’ were propagated on various leaders by the Congress, he said Godse was a true journalist who wrote 350 articles and a freedom fighter.

He sought to know that when permissions were granted to erect statues of Muslim leaders who killed Hindus and when roads and streets were named after them, why the fuss in erecting Godse busts. Sabha national president Chandra Prakash Gowsik was also present during the presser.
