Nathuram Godse Zindabad tweets ‘gangs’ on Gandhi Jayanti day; Sabha Naqvi is the face of the new India
New Delhi: The hashtag ‘Nathuram Godse Zindabad’ has been trending on Twitter on Gandhi Jayanti. The tweets against Gandhi came from extremist Hindutva profiles and called Godse, the assassin of Gandhi, Zindabad.
The hashtag Nathuram Godse has become a trend following the Twitter accounts of BJP leader Kapil Mishra and others accused in the Delhi riots.
Many have come to the scene with a response. Writer Sabha Naqvi tweeted that this is the face of the new India. When I woke up on Gandhi Jayanti morning, Nathuram Godse on Twitter was trending above Zindabad. Sabha Naqvi tweeted that she is a face of the new India.
Sabha Naqvi is the author of several books, including Saffron Shades: From Vajpayee to Modi (2018), and The Politics of Jugaad: The Alliance Handbook (March 2019).
Earlier, BJP MP Pragya Singh Thakur had said in the Lok Sabha that Godse was a patriot. Pragya’s reference was then removed from the church records.
Earlier, Pragya had praised Godse. Pragya said Godse was a patriot and those who called him a terrorist should reconsider.
I wake up on #GandhiJayanti to find Nathuram Godse Zindabad trending on top. A face of New India.

Pragya had said that those who called Godse a terrorist would get an answer in the elections. Pragya was responding to Kamal Haasan’s remark that Godse was the first Hindu terrorist in India.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who remained silent for the first time that day, has come under fire from opposition parties. Although he later nominated Pragya as the BJP candidate for Bhopal, Modi had to say that he could never forgive Mahatma Gandhi for insulting him.
Gandhiji was assassinated on January 30, 1948 at Birla House by Nathuram Godse, a Hindu right – wing extremist.
