Mahatma Gandhi's Killer tells why he killed him! May be father of Nation but not his.

I just happen to find this link to Nathuram Godse's last speech. I wish it had the English subtitles for the World to see the real Gandhi. I know many Sikhs do not hold Gandhi in great regard as Indians or others because he was against Sikhs carrying Kirpans (religiously mandated sword). He thought Hinsa (violence) was a sin and satyagreh was the only way. He thought he could change western mindset to let go India. Listen to Nathuram how he says that in Hinduism Ram killed Ravan, Krishan killed Kans, how Shiva ji fought against the mughals, Guru Gobind Singh ji fought against tyranny of the muslim rulers.

And, now you know the rest of the story. To me, the father of India, at least for Sikhs is Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji Maharaj who taught us a complete balance between hinsa and ahinsa (saint-soldier, sardaar-sevadar, Gur-chela)
