A question: How did Gandhiji commit suicide? was asked in Gujarat (India) to class 9th students during an internal assessment exam of schools run under the banner of ‘Sufalam Shala Vikas Sankul.
This is a new agenda of RSS in India. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been singing a song of Mahatma Gandhi from early morning to midnight. Prime Minister Narendra Modi proudly use the name of the father of the nation at the United Nations forum to win the hearts of the world leaders.
This agenda of RSS aims to wash out the sins of Nathuram Godse, RSS affiliate who assassinated the father of the nation in the daylight on 30 January 1948 at Birla House (now Gandhi Smriti). The idea of BJP/RSS is to confuse the minds of the students from the beginning. Nothing can be shameful than this for the whole nation.
There is no denying the fact that India`s education system has gone to the worst hands since the BJP took the reign of the government. Such pre-mediated abhorrent effort on behalf of the BJP/RSS will lead to disaster in the education system.
People of India must understand that BJP/RSS has nothing to do with Gandhi or Gandhism. Gandhi and Gandhism are used egregiously to establish a good rapport with the world leaders who believe that non-violence is the only method through which justice can be achieved permanently.
