Mahatma Gandhi must be declared "Father of Nation" officially without delay.This is a matter of national shame that Mahatma Gandhi has not been declared Father Of Nation officially so far. Are the generations of India reading Mahatma Gandhi as Father of Nation falsely in their text books ? Is this not a matter of shame and regret!!! The great soul Mahatma Gandhi and his unforgettable sacrifices must be respected by the government of India by declaring him the father of the nation officially in a formal way. An ordinance can be issued by government of India or an ammendment in constitution can make it possible to declare Mahatma Gandhi the father of the nation.

History has it

Father of the Nation is an honorific title given to a man considered the driving force behind the establishment of a nation. As per Wikipedia, it was Subhas Chandra Bose who used the term for Mahatma Gandhi, in a radio address from Singapore in 1944. Later, it was recognised by the Indian government. When Gandhi was assassinated, India's first prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru, in a radio address to the nation, had announced that the Father of the Nation "is no more."
