DAVIS TOWN, CA- Indian Overseas Congress strongly condemns the destruction of the Mahatma Gandhi statue in California. The Indian Overseas Congress USA, an advocacy organization that stands for democracy and freedom, strongly condemns the desecration and destruction of the Mahatma Gandhi statue in Davis’s town in California. It is more hurtful to see that the miscreants who had done this despicable act on the eve of Jan 30th, the day when Mahatma Gandhi paid the ultimate sacrifice for every Indian citizen’s freedom. IOCUSA shares the shock and anguish in this regard along with every member of the Indian Diaspora.
It has been reported that unknown miscreants vandalized and ripped Gandhi’s statue from the base in the central park of Davis in California. We are grateful to the City of Davis for starting a formal investigation and hope that the perpetrators who have done this horrible deed will be found and prosecuted to the full extent of the law.
Mahatma Gandhi was a champion of peaceful protests and vandalizing this revered soul’s statue would not advance anyone’s political agenda. Still, it will only play into the hands of those who want to bring polarization and division to our community.
