I am currently reading this wonderful book by @Koenraad_Elst which gives amazing insight abt the defence of Godse and exposes the blunders commited by Gandhi (I refuse to use Mahatma), have decided that will be tweeting extracts from the same as I go along. #KnowYourLegacy
Untill now almost all the works published on Gandhi have been hagiographies with none really questioning Gandhi on some hard facts and hence this book comes as something fresh.. #KnowYourLegacy @muglikar_ @indiantweeter @TrueIndology
This book also provides an opportunity for the next gen to learn abt the mistakes commited during the freedom struggle and more importantly also abt the fact that it was not a single person or party which helped us attain independence #KnowYourLegacy @muglikar_ @TrueIndology
Requesting stalwarts of exposing the MSM and the entrenched historians to support this small effort on my part... @muglikar_ @indiantweeter @OpIndia_com @TrueIndology @SwarajyaMag @coolfunnytshirt
At the outset the book details how Gandhi set in motion the unchallenged hegemony of Nehru by forcing Patel to withdraw his candidature for congress presidency #KnowYourLegacy #Gandhi
It seems the #Congress has a long tradition of unleashing it's cadres for murdering people in case one of its own leaders get assassinated..legacy followed well into the time when #IndiraGandhi was murdered.. #KnowYourLegacy #Gandhi
Another curious thing is why has been the document detailing Godse's defence been a tabooed document untill now...let the world learn about what Godse had to say..check out what justice GD Khosla had to say abt Godse's defence
Another lie always peddled by the entrenched congress ecosystem is that #RSS was involved in Gandhi's murder whereas nothing could be farther from the truth, although Godse does not deny his #RSS association, merely using that to implicate is incorrect..
Like the author says, being of the same political opinion does not constitute complicity in the crime, while distancing from the murder, the #RSS outght to accept that their opinion of Gandhi's policies and rightly so were similar to that of Godse
Another example of how the #Gandhi murder trial was used by #Nehru to settle political score with #Savarkar confirmed by none other than #Ambedkar #KnowYourLegacy
Another one of the failing of #Gandhi was his failure to use his weapon of non violence against his opponents, what use is such a strategy if not used to achieve your political ends viz preventing the division of #India ? #KnowYourLegacy
Here the author discusses abt the ambivalent position taken by #Gandhi leading to the adoption of communal electorates which apparently sowed the seeds for partition #KnowYourLegacy
