<br />
One of the Independance movement leader's followers wrote to him on December 21, 1947, to express his fears about the 'fundamental evil of religious fanaticism'.<br />

On January 30, 1948, he was murdered by Hindu nationalist Nathuram Godse who fired three bullets into his chest in the garden of Birla House in Delhi was he walked to a prayer meeting.
