Mahatma Gandhi is revered across the world for his non-violent campaign for Indian independence and was nominated five times for the Nobel Peace Prize.
But plans to unveil a statue in his memory in Manchester have sparked a backlash from a student leader who claims he was a 'virulently anti-black racist'.
The 9ft statue has been donated to the city by the Shrimad Rajchandra Mission Dharampur, a spiritual mission based in Gandhi's ancestral homeland of Gujarat, following the Manchester Arena bombing which killed 22 people in 2017.
It is due to be unveiled outside Manchester Cathedral next month, to 'spread a message of peace, love and harmony'.

... and then they came for me.
Well then, that must mean MLK was also a racist since his non violent resistance to Democrats was inspired by Gandhi.
I love it! The left eating its own! Maybe Gandhi had a Klan outfit hidden somewhere! Too funny!
Apparently, he was also just a little too fond of little girls, if the stories are to be believed...
In just about every picture you see of him, he's wearing a white sheet.
he walked around in a sheet!........
Probably didnt wear the hood because its hot and humid in India most of the year!
There is no perfect person. Everyone is flawed. Furthermore, when judging a person, you must consider the times he lived in.
Wait. Scratch all that. You dont become a Social Justice Warrior by being reasonable or forgiving. Instead, use the template below. Just dont pick someone who is currently popular with the PC crowd.
(Historical persons name here) was a racist! I demand that (historical person) be erased from history!
“a student leader”
So one whining crybaby is more important than honoring the guy who showed non violent protest can change history and arguably free a nation.
Depends on which part of India. The Northern part is relatively temperate.................
There is no historical figure anywhere who could pass the snowflake test... I guess that’s the point of erasing the past for these goons.
He was also an incestuous pedophile. His young girl relatives were often his bed mates. His key allies knew it and did nothing for years. It was only in his latest years that that condition ended.
Gandi was a lucky man. He was captured by the Brits, who treated him well and let him become famous.
If he had been captured by Muslims he would have been quickly beheaded and no one would know who he was today.

Side story: A school district near me had an American Indian in full headdress as its symbol. It was a very noble rendering. Nothing silly or demeaning.
One person complained. Just one single person! And she wasnt even an American Indian. Well, everyone folded. The symbol was changed. School letterheads had to be reprinted. School jerseys had to be reordered, etc.
Whats the best word to describe all that? Pathetic might do.
According to the bit of biography I read, he would sleep naked with little girls to show how holy he was...
Yes, that was apparently done to show how "above the world" he was...

Martin Luther King considered homosexuality to be a mental disorder. In an Ebony magazine advice column he wrote back in the late 1950s, King advised a young homosexual to go see a psychiatrist.
Will the gay lobby demand that all streets named after MLK be renamed? Just curious.
My interest in liberation activism grew from my own experience as a queer Muslim woman, and the opportunity that the University of Manchester has given me to explore and discuss the lack of representation, services, and support that exists for marginalised people.
Effing disgusting freak.
All Hindu’s are technically racist. As I recall there are 4-stages of mankind in their reincarnation belief. Brahma ... which Ghandi was, is the only one that can go to Nirvana
Gandhi went on a hunger strike to block voting rights for the lowest class in India in the new constitution. The lowest class, called untouchables, are black.
