Nathuram Godse was an Indian man who gained notoriety for assassinating Mahatma Gandhi, a popular figure in India's successful campaign for independence from British rule. He was an advocate of Hindu nationalism and opposed many of Gandhi’s political views. He shot Gandhi thrice at point-blank range on 30 January 1948. Godse was later executed for this crime.
Considered a martyr by some and a militant by others, Sukhdev Singh Sukha was a leading member of the Khalistan Commando Force, a group that aimed at creating a separate Sikh state. He was one of the assassins of Congress MP Lalit Maken and, later, of Indian Army chief Arun Vaidya.
