Important things to note:

Issues keep arising in the country of India, but this thing has also been a matter of discussion for years: what is the real religion of Rahul Gandhi? Is Rahul Gandhi Muslim or Hindu? And why does Congress always support only anti-Hindu ideologies?


The most important question arises: when Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru's daughter Indira Nehru was married to Feroze Jehangir, then why does her family claim themselves to be Hindu today? If we do not look at the political reasons, then it is known that the Nehru family had no relationship even remotely with the family of Mahatma Gandhi. So today, this family calls itself the Gandhi family.


Mahatma Gandhi (in brief):
The full name of "Mahatma Gandhi" was Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi. Who was born on October 2, 1869, in Porbandar (India). Mahatma Gandhi died on January 30, 1948, in Delhi.

His family belonged to the Vaishya (merchant caste). He was 13 when he married Kasturbai Makhanji with the consent of his parents. He had four sons. Gandhiji learned tolerance and non-violence towards living beings from an early age. That's why they stayed away from meat, alcohol, and fornication.

Rahul and Sonia Gandhi are not the real descendants of Mahatma Gandhi:

Today, even though the current Gandhi family is known by the surname "Gandhi", the fact is that neither Rahul Gandhi nor Sonia Gandhi are the real descendants of Mahatma Gandhi. After Gandhi, the name of the Gandhi family that comes to mind when hearing the word Gandhi is not actually the family of Mahatma Gandhi. Neither Rahul Gandhi, Sonia Gandhi, nor Priyanka Gandhi.

Forget the family; the current Gandhi family's surname, Gandhi," is not the real name of this family. Has this family pretended to be the Gandhi family for so many years to fulfill their political aspirations?

But even today, there are some artists who are maintaining this 500- to 600-year-old Bidri art. One such artist is Shah Rashid Ahmed Qadri. Who was honored with the Padma Shri award by President Draupadi Murmu in 2023 for keeping the Bidri art alive. He told PM Modi that he had thought that he would get the Padma Shri in the UPA government but did not get it. And today I have received the same honor from you.

Important questions:
First - If this family is not the real family of Mahatma Gandhi, then which Gandhi family are they descendants of? And how did he get the surname Gandhi? Has this family been pretending to be Mahatma Gandhi's family for years?

Second - Second question: if this family is not of Mahatma Gandhi, then who is the real descendant of Mahatma Gandhi? And why weren't we taught the truth about these two families in the books? Why Mahatma Gandhi kept his real family hidden and presented the Nehru family in front of the world by giving it the name of the Gandhi family

Because the real family of Mahatma Gandhi is either living a life of oblivion or people do not know much about them.

Are the two families separate?

The current Gandhi family begins with Mrs. Indira Gandhi, the first woman Prime Minister of India. Being the daughter of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, her name before marriage was Indira Nehru. She was married to Feroze Jehangir Ghandhy (Ghandhy, not Gandhi) on March 26, 1942.

Firoz Jahangir, who had been active in politics for a long time, was very close to Mahatma Gandhi. Along with this, Indira's father, Jawaharlal, was also close to Mahatma Gandhi. Therefore, it can be said that the present Gandhi family and Mahatma Gandhi's family are not the same.

Before understanding the surname dispute between these two families, one has to know about the real genealogy of Mahatma Gandhi and the current Gandhi family.

- Current Gandhi Family - 

It is not hidden from anyone that at present, which family is known as 'Gandhi? But the twist in the tale comes when it is revealed that the family adopted the Gandhi surname after being influenced by the fame of Mahatma Gandhi. Because this present Gandhi family started with Feroze Jehangir Ghandy (Ghandy in English). When he was married to Indira Nehru, daughter of Jawaharlal Nehru.

How did the Nehru family get the surname 'Gandhi'?
Full credit goes to Feroze Gandhi (Ghandy) for the Nehru family's Gandhi surname. Because in 1930, Feroze's first meeting with Kamla Nehru and Indira took place between women protesters demonstrating outside the Christian College. Kamala fainted from the heat of the sun, and Firoz went to console her. The next day, he left his studies to join the Indian independence movement. Inspired by Mahatma Gandhi, Feroze changed the spelling of his surname from "Ghandy" to "Gandhi" after joining the independence movement.

But even till now, the present Gandhi family has not said anything openly in this matter.

When did the family of Firoz Jahangir (Ghandy) become the Gandhi family?

Indira Gandhi was born on November 19, 1942, a year after the marriage of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru. And later, on March 26, 1942, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru got Indira Gandhi married to Feroze Jahangir. And it was only after this marriage that a controversy arose in the country. And people objected to it. And people also wrote many letters to Gandhiji objecting to this marriage. Saying that, how could Jawaharlal Nehru marry his daughter to a Persian?

According to the second opinion of historians, Feroze Jehangir and Jawaharlal Nehru used to meet Gandhiji. Because at that time Mahatma Gandhi had become a national symbol. And at that time, every person and every child in the country had become familiar with the name Gandhi. Simply put, the name Gandhi has become a brand.


Meanwhile, seeing the popularity of Gandhiji, Feroze Jahangir started replacing Gandhi with "Ghandy" in his surname. And it is said that even Mahatma Gandhi came to know about it. But by the time he could say anything, it was too late. Because Mahatma Gandhi was shot dead in 1948.

Firoz Jahangir had already started using the surname Gandhi. And even later, instead of Ghandy, he continued the surname Gandhi after Mahatma Gandhi. And for this reason, Indira Nehru, instead of becoming Indira Ghandy, became Indira Gandhi.

And when the Congress party came to power after independence and Indira Gandhi became Prime Minister in 1966, Even then, the Congress Party continued to use the Gandhi surname. And since then, we have been taught Gandhi in history books with the family names of Indira and Feroze Gandhi instead of Ghandy. Because the reality was never told about it in the books.
