Mahatma Gandhi, the father of Nation was assassinated at Gandhi Smriti in the Birla House on 30 January 1948.

Why is Martyr’s Day celebrated on 30 January?

Mahatma Gandhi, the Father of our Nation was assassinated by Nathuram Godse in the Birla House on 30 January 1948 during his evening prayer. Gandhiji was a freedom fighter with huge determination, a man who sacrificed his life for the independence, welfare, and development of India. Nathuram Godse was trying to justify his crime by holding Gandhiji responsible for the partition of the country. He called Mahatma Gandhi a pretender and in no way felt guilty for his crime. Godse was sentenced to death on 8th November. The Indian Government announced the day as Shaheed Diwas or Martyr’s Day.
