Police registered a case against general secretary of Akhil Bharatya Hindu Mahasabha (ABHM), Acharya Madan, for performing ‘bhoomi pujan’ on a plot of land on Sharda Road, Meerut on 24 Dec. 2014 in preparation for erecting a statue of Nathuram Godse, killer of Mahatma Gandhi. Acharya Madan reportedly praised Godse calling him a “true patriot”. He criticized Narendra Modi over the issues of Ram Temple and revocation of Article 370. Police took notice only when this matter was highlighted by media and registered a case against Madan under Sections 504 and 505. Police also seized a video-tape of the objectionable comments which can be used as evidence in the court. District administration of Meerut is planning to take strict steps against those who were involved in the planned erection of a statue of Godse. The ABHM had earlier announced that it would erect several statues of Godse across the country alongwith one at Meerut. The administration has been maintaining strict vigil to stop any untoward incident. Meanwhile, demands have been made to ban the release of ABHM’s upcoming documentary “Desh Bhakt Nathuram Godse” which is slated to be released on 30 January 2015. On the other hand, MDMK chief Vaiko slammed the ABHM over its plans to install Godse’s busts across the country. He urged the Tamil Nadu government to prevent such glorification of Godse.
