Gandhi-Godse-Savarkar...when will the debate end?

Who was right... Gandhi-Godse-Savarkar ... ? Who did the most right thing...? These are the questions haunting us since decades. But till when?

We all believe that these people were great...because of their actions. Some might feel otherwise for Gandhi or Godse. The motive behind their actions, the logic behind their decisions might be a matter of debate.

The thought process behind their actions might be a reason to have conflicts.

But WHICH thoughts are right, WHICH choices are wise...should not be a debating topic...! The "Non violance" professed by Gandhi, to some, might be too optimistic and extreme. The Gandhi assassination by Godse also could be a brutal act to some. But if there's a consensus on "WHICH" reason, what motive justifies the act...then there's no reason to debate further...right?

Who is/was right...Gandhi-Godse-Savarkar...? Instead of asking and arguing on these issues...isn't it wise to ask each other questions like...what can we learn from them...which values, ideologies should we follow...?

Can't we keep other useless debates on what happened in past and move on?

Can't we utilize our time in using the learnings AND...APPLY them...to improve the world we are living in?

Isn't it more important?

  1. The 'Non-Violence' practiced by our so-called Father of the Nation was detrimental for the country. I can list many examples in which Gandhi would be supported only by maniacs. He is responsible for many deaths and rapes of our own country-men and women.

  2. I think Godse doesn't deserve a place in this great list of Gandhi Nehru Netaji Sawarkar Tilak Patel .... He was just an executor of an inhuman activity.... Can be called " Item boy " of so called self proclaimed deshpremis..!!
