    Mahatma Gandhi cannot be accorded the 'Father of the Nation' title by government as the Constitution does not permit any titles except educational and military ones, the home ministry has said.

    In an RTI response to Lucknow-based student Aishwarya Parashar, the home ministry has told her that no action was taken on her plea to the President to declare Mahatma Gandhi as the 'Father of the Nation' because Article 18 (1) of the Constitution does not permit any titles except education and military ones.

    Aishwarya had filed number of RTI petitions seeking details about Gandhi and the reasons of referring him as the Father of the Nation. In response, she was told that no such title has been accorded to Gandhi.

    Driven by a patriotic zeal, Class VI student Aishwarya wrote to the then President Pratibha Patil [ Images ] and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh [ Images ] to issue a notification declaring Mahatma Gandhi as the 'Father of the Nation'.

    Aishwarya had filed an RTI petition seeking to know the action taken on her plea by the President and the Prime Minister.

    The application was then transferred to the home ministry with instructions to explain the action taken on her plea.

    After all these years, without blindly following what the history of India says, at least one voice has asked why is Gandhi called father of the nation and has proved that he cannot be called so..........

    Shows the power of persuasion to make one believe what one wants people to believe.

    A piece of rhyme in The New Statesman And Nation (circa 1935) by `Sagittarius' sums it all:


    "De Valera and his Green Shirts with their back to the wall,
    Hitler with his Brown Shirts riding for a fall,
    Mussolini with his Black Shirts lording over it all,
    Three Cheers for Mahatma Gandhi with no shirt at all!"


    And no title at all!

    Actually it was Subhash Chandra Bose who gave him title of "father of the nation".

    I think he gave the title by seeing his arrogance of POWER..........

    I myself never considered MK Gandhi more than a Butcher of Hindus and a detrimental factor for the left over Hindus of Indian Subcontinent......Bhala ho Shree Nathu Ram Ji ka.......We remember Shree Nathu Ram Ji more than Gandhi these days.....This man must have had guts and nerves of steel to do something this brave for the country by getting rid of this blot off our chest so early! I don't know what all this BS Mahatma must have given to pakistan in connivance of traitor Nehru!

    I'm not a mod, but here is my opinion:

    Another acceptable language understandable by everyone is Hindi. English and Hindi are the 2 "national languages" of India, and therefore it is reasonable to speak and write in these 2 languages without translation.

    I presume the mod put "(English)" in that message because you are not from India and don't know how to write Hindi.

    Hitler was German. Unfortunately, writing in German is not permitted on this board.

    Also, as noted in forum rules, public criticism of moderators is not permitted.

    Who is this Kayal? Is he Kayal or Kayar? Why is he so frustrated about people calling gandhi a traitor. Well this is the proof that "SACH BAHOTH KADWA HAI .....TRUTH IS SOAR" and every person feels like this when he/she gets to know the TRUTH. Give Kayal some time, let him digest the TRUTH of gandhi. All of us have been reading gandhi is the father of the nation and he was the one who brought us freedom, in our childhood.........

    We have to show him the correct path and educate him about the traitors of INDIA...........

    This is why people without some knowledge of correct HISTORY OF INDIA must not be allowed to comment in some threads.........
