Shooting of Gandhi’s effigy act ‘abominable’: Nagaland Congress

NPCC condemns reenacting the ‘killing’ of the ‘Father of the Nation’ on his 71st death anniversary by Akhil Bharat Hindu Mahasabha in UP on Jan 30

Dimapur: The Nagaland Pradesh Congress Committee (NPCC) has condemned the act of the Akhil Bharat Hindu Mahasabha (ABHM) of burning an effigy of Mahatma Gandhi in Uttar Pradesh on January 30.

In a press statement, the NPCC condemned the ABHM of reenacting "the killing of Mahatma Gandhi on his 71st death anniversary by shooting at his effigy that was later burnt down” and later glorified Gandhi’s assassin by garlanding his the statue.

As per the statement, a protest function was held at the district Congress committee office in Dimapur where the general secretary Capt GK Zhimomi mentioned that despite the RSS and its frontals harbouring “immense hatred towards the Father of the Nation”, the ideas of Gandhi has shaped the whole country.

President K Therie, in his address, highlighted that “it was because Gandhi propounded these secular ideas that he was deeply hated leading to his assassination by Nathuram Godse” and that “the NPCC wants to send a strong signal to the people and the nation that we do not accept Hindutva or its proponents and condemn the insane act of shooting and burning of Mahatma Gandhiji’s effigy”.
