Dear Friend,

During the COVID-19 pandemic, independent news is more important than ever. You turn to Democracy Now! because you trust that when we're reporting on this global crisis, our coverage is not brought to you by the fossil fuel, insurance or weapons industries or Big Pharma. We're bringing you stories from the front lines, and voices you simply won't hear anywhere else—but we’re counting on you to make it possible. Today, a generous supporter will DOUBLE your donation to Democracy Now!, meaning your gift goes twice as far. This is a challenging time for us all, but if you're able to support Democracy Now! with a donation, please do so today. Stay safe, and thank you so much.
-Amy Goodman

Mahatma Gandhi was shot dead on January 30 1948, by Nathram Godse, a Hindu nationalist enraged by Gandhi’s overtures to Muslims after the partition of Britain’s Indian empire into predominately Hindu India and officially Islamic Pakistan. The date of his death is now an Indian holiday, Martyr’s Day.
