Gandhi’s death anniversary is on 30th January
Maharashtra Congress Committee Nana Patole has written to Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray to demand that the film “Why did you kill Gandhi” or “Why I Killed Gandhi” be banned. Mahatma Gandhi was assassinated by Nathuram Godse on 30 January 1948, he wrote to the Chief Minister. On January 30, 2022, filmmakers plan to screen “Why Killed Gandhi” in support of Gandhi’s assassination. We would like to inform you that this day marks the death anniversary of Gandhiji.
Nana Patole claimed that this film will strengthen fascist attitudes
Mahatma Gandhi’s thoughts have influenced the entire world. His country, India, is known as Gandhiji. Through his independence, Mahatma Gandhi demonstrated that India could be conquered using the weapons of truth, non-violence, and satyagraha. It is for this reason that he is revered worldwide. The death anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi is celebrated all over the world as a day of national unity, ethnic harmony, and non-violence. Thus, there will be a screening of the film “Why Killed Gandhi”, which illustrates the unrest, hatred, and violence. It is likely to strengthen fascism.
According to Nana Patole, promoting any heinous and inhuman act is against Indian culture. The film will be screened in any theater and on OTT in the state. It has been demanded that the performances on stage be banned by the Congress party.
