Site identified in Lucknow for Godse temple: Hindu outfit

After Meerut and Sitapur, the Akhil Bharatiya Hindu Mahasabha has identified a site in Lucknow for a temple dedicated to Mahatma Gandhi’s assassin Nathuram Godse.

The organisation plans to conduct ‘bhoomi poojan’ soon to begin construction at the site on the outskirts of Lucknow. “The temple… for Godse will come up at Bhaptamau in Haiderganj area of Lucknow, for which a local resident has voluntarily given the land to the Mahasabha. Our plan is to install Godse’s bust at the site before January 30, which we will celebrate as ‘Shaurya Diwas’ to honour the ‘martyr’ [Godse]... We plan to hold similar events that day across the country,” Mahasabha national general secretary Munna Kumar Sharma told The Hindu.
