"Unacceptable": US Lawmakers Condemn Vandalisation Of Gandhi Statue
Nation Now TV February 03, 2021
Washington: An Indian-American Congressman sought an FBI investigation on Tuesday into the vandalisation of a statue of Mahatma Gandhi in California as several other lawmakers condemned the act.
A bronze statue of Gandhi in the Central Park of the city of Davis in Northern California was vandalised, broken and ripped from the base by unknown people last week. The city has registered a case and is investigating the incident.
“I condemn this malicious act in the strongest terms and I call upon the FBI to investigate it as a possible hate crime intended to intimidate Indian-Americans, among others,” Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi said.
“The desecration of a statue of Gandhi, who championed peace and non-violence and who continues to influence countless non-violent struggles for justice including in America, serves as a sad reminder of how important his teachings remain,” he said.
In a separate statement, Congressman Ami Bera condemned the vandalisation of the statue.
