On 20 January 1948, Gopal Godse, a Hindu fanatic, attempted to assassinate Mahatma Gandhi. Ten days later, his brother Nathuram Godse managed to finish the job: he killed Gandhi.

One Response to “Mahatma Gandhi – Dying for Freedom (Documentary)”

  1. Gandhi is an idea of non-violence, non-exploitation, non-oppression, liberation and peace. But Gandhi is murdered every day, every moment he is assassinated.

    Violence is the product of non-unfoldment or partial unfoldment of universally inherent five elements, viz. body, vitality, mind, intellect and spirit in every man and woman everywhere, and peace is the product of integral unfoldment of these five elements. Therefore man-making universal peace education is a must for all. Universally renowned and well recognized pioneer of peace studies Prof. Johan Galtung identifying 12 basic human needs in very man and woman has told that fulfillment of these needs is peace, and denial of these needs is violence.
