Martyrs' Day of India 2014

Martyrdom of Mahatma Gandhi – Friday, January 30, 1948

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi (October 2, 1869 – January 30, 1948) was the pre-eminent political and ideological leader of India during the Indian independence movement. Father of the nation, Mahatma Gandhi, was assassinated a little before the sunset on January 30, 1948, by Nathuram Godse, a Hindu nationalist who felt Gandhi was sympathetic to the Muslims.

Martyrs’ Day in India is observed on January 30 to pay homage Mahatma Gandhi and other freedom fighters who gave up their lives in the service of the Nation.

On this day a two minute silence is observed at 11 am throughout the country in the memory of Mahatma Gandhi and other martyrs. At Rajghat, in front of the Samadhi of Gandhiji, all-religion prayers are held and bhajans dear to him sung.

This article has some rare photos including a rare photograph of Mahatma Gandhi shot three times at point-blank range in the chest with a .38 Beretta semi-automatic pistol by Nathuram Godse.

The young man, who had a pistol, suddenly fired three shots from close range at Gandhiji. The Mahatma fell on the ground, his white khadi dress soaked in blood. A man of prayer, Gandhiji remembered God and said, “Hey Ram : Hey Ram.” It was 5.17 pm.
