Remarks on Mahatma Gandhi: ‘I don’t regret my statement,’ says seer Kalicharan Maharaj | Raipur News – Times of India

RAIPUR: In a video statement issued by Sadhu Kalicharan Maharaj after an FIR was lodged against him in Chhattisgarh for his remark against Mahatma Gandhi and praising his assassin Godse, he said that despite the FIR, he doesn’t regret his speech and he would continue to hate Gandhi.

“Rather it’s Godse who’s Mahatma for me and I kowtow before him,” he said.
Chief minister Bhupesh Baghel reacted sharply stating, “If Kalicharan was courageous enough and doesn’t regret, then he should come and surrender before police. Else, police teams are being sent to different states and would arrest him.”

Chhattisgarh police had lodged a case against Kalicharan for his controversial and insulting remarks on Mahatma Gandhi and minority community during a ‘Dharam Sansad’ organised in Raipur on Saturday and Sunday.
In the fresh video statement, Kalicharan is heard talking in length against Gandhi and politics during India’s independence struggle.

“What has Gandhi done for Hindus, he has betrayed the nation. He has seeded the dynasty politics in the country and destroyed others. I don’t call him the Father of the Nation. Had Gandhi-Nehru dynastism wouldn’t have happened, India would have become a super power bigger than America.”
Haven’t freedom fighters Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev, Rajguru, Chandra Shekhar Azad, Subhash Chandra Bose and others have sacrificed for the Independence? Kalicharan asked saying Gandhi could have prevented the hanging.
“Gandhi used ‘anshan’ only against the peace of nation. Lakhs of people were killed during India-Pakistan partition,” he said.
He challenged that he will accept death and never regret hating Gandhi and speaking the “truth” in spite the cases registered against him.
Meanwhile, president of Chhattisgarh Janata Congress (J) Amit Jogi said that instead of focussing on Gandhi and Godse, who are no more, government should concentrate on state issues that call for attention.
“Dharam Sansad like events are done to distract people from real issues. There’re issues like unemployment, farmers and others no one talk about. Focussing on development of the state is the need of the hour though it’s objectionable to speak ill of the Father of Nation,” he said.
