This is Nathuram Godse, the man who assassinated Mahatma Gandhi.

His former party, right-wing group Akhil Bharatiya Hindu Mahasabha, has been advocating the recognition of Godse as a martyr.

In January, 2015, they proposed the installation of Godse statues across India.

The move was opposed by various quarters, with prohibitory orders issued against installation of the statues.

Of course, a silly little court order wasn't gonna stop these guys.

They got his statues built and plans were on to get them erected soon... Save for one tiny thing.
