Professor Dr .Tahir Kamran Contributes a 2-Part Article to The News

Prof. Dr. Tahir Kamran from BNU School of Liberal Arts contributed a 2-part article  for The News on Sunday editions of October 6 & 13, titled "The Cult of Godse."

The article is an exploration of Godse’ (assassin of Mohandas Gandhi) re-invention as an iconic figure among India’s political leaders.  The following is an excerpt from the piece:

"The likes of Godse are now being redeemed. Gandhi’s assassination would soon be an insignificant event in modern Indian history. One should not be surprised if Godse is enunciated as the biggest national martyr of an India that has found a new father (as stated by none else than Donald Trump) in Modi."
