Nidhi Choudhari, IAS Officer from Mumbai recently tweeted against Mahatma Gandhi which sparked a controversy. Nidhi Choudhari stated in her Tweet that all Gandhi statues around the world must be taken down along with his image on the Indian currency notes. She also added that the ‘Father of the Nation title must not be associated with Mahatma Gandhi’s name. Nidhi Choudhari went one step further to thank Gandhi’s assassin Nathuram Godse for his act. On facing criticism and backlash, Choudhari said that she was only attempting to speak against the vilification of Gandhi’s legacy. She went on to question why the tweet sparked a row several days after she posted it and not immediately.  Her statements seem to be in the same line as Sadhvi Pragya’s, who had hailed Nathuram Godse as a patriot during her election campaign.

In 1989-90, with Rajiv Gandhi as PM and Farooq Abdullah as CM, 400,000 Kashmiri Pandits, Sikhs & Others FACED GENOCIDE - were slaughtered or forced to leave Kashmir overnight. "The Kashmir Files" shows only a small part of this. Should a Kashmir Genocide Law be made and the atrocities be fully investigated?

आपकी राय

1989-90 में, राजीव गांधी के प्रधान मंत्री और फारूक अब्दुल्ला के मुख्यमंत्री के रूप में, 400,000 कश्मीरी पंडितों, सिखों और अन्य लोगों को नरसंहार का सामना करना पड़ा - या तो रातों-रात कश्मीर छोड़ने के लिए मजबूर होना पड़ा । "द कश्मीर फाइल्स" इसका एक छोटा सा हिस्सा ही दिखाता है। क्या कश्मीर में हुए नरसंहार पर कानून बनाया जाना चाहिए और अत्याचारों की पूरी जांच होनी चाहिए?
