‘Pedophile’, ‘Devil’: Khalistanis in California oppose reinstallation of vandalised Gandhi statue, hurl obscene abuses at protesting Indian Americans

Indian American protesters had gathered at the spot of the Gandhi statue on Sunday to register their protest against the wanton act of vandalism. However, they were met with counter-protesters from the local Sikh community which opposed the statue.

A state of Mahatama Gandhi was vandalized recently in Davis, California by unknown miscreants. The photographs of the vandalism was shared on social media by the California Sikh Youth Alliance. The pro-Khalistan organization also distributed sweets to celebrate the hoisting of the Sikh flag at the Red Fort.

Indian American protesters had gathered at the spot of the Gandhi statue on Sunday to register their protest against the wanton act of vandalism. However, they were met with counter-protesters from the local Sikh community which opposed the statue.

Members of the CYSA reached the spot and protested against the installation of the Gandhi statue. The CYSA also said that they will lobby against the re-installation of the statue. Images of the protest were shared on social media by local journalists.

Suhag A. Shukla, Executive Director of the Hindu American Foundation, said that the anti-statue protesters hurled obscene abuses and invaded people’s personal space. The Police had to get involved.

The counter-protesters also called Mahatma Gandhi a ‘rapist’ and a ‘sex offender’ and celebrated the act of vandalism.

The anti-statue protesters demonstrated with a poster which described Mahatma Gandhi as a ‘Devil’ and called him anti-Black and accused him of harbouring ‘Nazi-love’. “It is absolutely unfair to have such a questionable figure planted in parks,” one Dr. Prabhjot Singh told the media. “We’re talking about a pedophile statue.”

The City of Davis had earlier condemned the vandalism of the Mahatma Gandhi statue. The Indian Embassy had also sought strong action regarding the same.
