    Default Local Indians demand the removal of Gandhi statue in San Francisco.

    Gandhi, a deeply racist and reactionary bigot who saw non-violence as a political tool as opposed to a principle as his western liberal admirers would have us believe is anything but a hero to the oppressed Christian, Sikh and Islamic communities but is particularly loathed by the Dalits (so-called tribals) and other "untouchables" who have suffered most at the hands of everything he stood for. It should come as no surprise that local Indians would protest the erection of a statue of this scumbag....However it probably did.

    Gandhism.net : The Truth Shall Make You Free


    "Dear San Francisco Ferry Building Management,

    Today marks the 141st birthday of Hindu religious leader Mohandas Gandhi, a statue of whom was installed on the Embarcadero in 1984. While there are few things our society needs more than advocates for peace and harmony, Gandhi was definitely not the icon of peace portrayed by his supporters. On the contrary, he spent his life advocating for racial segregation, Hindu supremacism over India and other causes harmful to minorities. As members of the area‚─˘s large community of Indian minorities, we are therefore compelled to respectfully but firmly request you to remove the statue.
    Gandhi was instrumental in causing the bloody partition of India and consequently making religious nationalism the basis of the newly formed Muslim Pakistan and Hindu India. During the 1947 partition, he turned a deaf ear to the needs of over 70 million so-called ‚─˙Untouchables‚─¨ and 40 million Buddhists, Christians and Sikhs. His influence helped to concentrate political power in the hands of the majority populations, leaving minorities no choice but to accept the dominance of Islam in Pakistan or Hinduism in India. This caused the largest mass migration in human history as the original Hindu and Sikh residents in what became Pakistan were compelled to swap places with the Muslim residents of northern India. At least 12 million people were displaced and over one million died in the chaos...."

    Gandhi was not responsible for the partition of India and he spent most of the time of the partition on a protest of silence. The founders of Pakistan were responsible for the ethnic conflict.

    Gandhi was an attention seeker who knew how to play on the heart strings of western liberals...However there is no denying that his Hindu nationalism was instrumental in the sectarian blood bath that went along with the partition of India. Gandhi endorsed the Indian militaryĺs annexation of Kashmir, Hyderabad, and Junagarh lets not forget.

    Was Gandhi an anti-Communist? What were his views on Communism?

    I'm living in America, and in America, you're on your own. America's not a country. It's just a business. Now f***ing pay me.
