Since Gandhi's death at the hands of a Hindu extremist on 30 January 1948, many lies and half-truths about the great man have been concocted and presented as reality. Gandhi was responsible for partition, Gandhi abandoned the Hindus, killing Gandhi was the only way to save India - these are statements that continue to be propagated by Hindu extremists to justify Gandhi's murder. Written by Gandhi's great-grandson, Tushar A. Gandhi, Let's Kill Gandhi! draws on verbal history, archival material, records of trials and investigations, books by lawyers and judges, newspaper reports, and the author's own family, to present a true chronicle of a conspiracy that went far beyond the man who pulled the trigger that killed Mahatma Gandhi. About the Author Tushar A. Gandhi (b.1960) is the great-grandson of Mohandas and Kasturba Gandhi, and the grandson of their second son, Manilal, and wife Sushila. In 1996 he discovered an urn containing the ashes from Gandhi's funeral pyre, forgotten in the strong room of the State Bank of India, Cuttack. He secured permission from the Supreme Court and immersed them in the Triveni Sangam on 30 January 1997. The same year he founded the Mahatma Gandhi Foundation, of which he is currently the managing trustee. In 2005, he commemorated the 75th anniversary of the Dandi March, by organizing a re-enactment of the 241-mile long walk. He walked the entire stretch and was instrumental in getting the prime minister to declare the route from Sabarmati Ashram to Dandi a historic heritage route. Tushar currently lives in Mumbai with his wife and two children.
