Mahatma Gandhi statue vandalized again in Canada, Indian embassy strongly condemns



New Delhi. In Canada, once again, the issue of damage to the statue of Mahatma Gandhi has come to light. A statue of Mahatma Gandhi installed on a university campus in the Canadian province of British Columbia has been vandalized. Previously, Khalistan supporters targeted a statue of Mahatma Gandhi. The Indian Consulate General in Vancouver said the statue in Peace Square at Simon Fraser University’s Burnaby campus was vandalized.

According to the media, the consulate tweeted: “We strongly condemn this crime of damaging the statue of Mahatma Gandhi, the pioneer of peace.” The embassy released a statement saying Canadian authorities have been urged to immediately investigate the matter and severely punish the culprits. On March 23, Khalistani supporters spray painted a statue of Mahatma Gandhi near City Hall in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.

At the same time, in July last year, the statue of Mahatma Gandhi that sits outside a Lord Vishnu temple in Richmond Hill, Canada was damaged. This incident was strongly condemned by the Consulate General of India located in Toronto. Please say that these days Khalistani supporters are continuously carrying out anti-Indian activities. On February 13, a Ram temple in Mississauga was targeted by Khalistan extremists. The Indian Embassy had also reacted strongly to this.
