30 January alternate view

There are currently 2 views on 30th January -

1. PC view is that Godse was an assasin and had committed a henious crime.

2. Contrarian view is that Gandhi deserved it because he was responsible for partition as well as some favor to Pakistan by giving 50 Crores

I want to take this Godse thing a bit further. If Godse did indeed think what Gandhiji did was wrong and was a disaster, what exactly did he achieve by killing him.
The partition, 50 Crores and other things had already happened, i.e. 'the damage was already done'.

Another theory is that Godse got himself circumsized and wanted it to appear as if a Musllim so that there was firther large scale rioting. That obviously did not happen. In fact to that end, Godse could have disguised as a Muslim and gone to Pakistan and tried making his kill there.

My take is as follows.
1. Godse actually did a favor on Gandhiji by making him a martyr. Perhaps he is one of the oldest if not the oldest person to be assasinated. At 78, he had lived more than what Nehru and Patel had lived. Gandhi was already a broken man and might have faded into oblivion had he lived on. He may have occasionally put agitations against Nehru's 'Temples of Modern India' and become a pain in the neck.

2. The whole assasin gang were a bunch of amateur losers. With that kind of preparation they had, they woud not not even be able to bump a Municipal corporator in the current day.
