Hindu Statement

Its not a Religious Statement, Its a Cultural Statement!!!

No to Gandhiji in Australia, “secular” yes to chaplin in India. What a shame!!

Australian city has said no to naming a street as mahatma gandhi marg because “will name streets of which have a historical or cultural significance of Australia and/or of those who have resided as a local resident for a considerable time” . In India we have our “seculars and intellectuals” crying foul when the locals said no to the statue of Chaplin in front of a temple. Good Going India, lick all the white mans and jihadi’s shoes while you can, because sooner or later one among these will screw up our country anyway.

Australia’s sixth largest city Gold Coast has said no to the request of naming a street after peace icon Mahatma Gandhi.

Replying to a plea of Gandhi Monument Council headquartered in USA, Ron Clarke, Gold Coast mayor, said, “…Council’s Street Naming department will not be able to support the request. Following Council’s Street Naming Guidelines Section S.1.4., Council will name streets of which have a historical or cultural significance of Australia and/or of those who have resided as a local resident for a considerable time.”
Right Reverend Gene Savoy Jr. and Rajan Zed, Council coordinators, in a communiqué to the City of Gold Coast, had urged to name one of the major streets of Gold Coast after Mahatma Gandhi, preferably to be called Mahatma Gandhi Marg (“marg” means path). While Savoy is Head Bishop of International Community of Christ, Zed is the president of Universal Society of Hinduism.
The Gandhi Monument Council is formed of Christian (various denominations), Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist, Jewish, Baha’i, Native American, etc., clergy. According to Zed and Savoy, the purpose of this Council is to commemorate Gandhi’s philosophy of non-violence, his commitment to world peace, and his work for the upliftment of the downtrodden.
