Was Mahatma Gandhi a racist?According to the media reports, professors of Ghana University have alleged that Mahatma Gandhi was a racist and have demanded to remove his statue installed in the campus. The statue was unveiled by the President Pranab Mukherjee during his visit to Ghana in June this year.
According to the allegations of the professors, he was racist and considered Indians to be 'infinitely superior' to black Africans.
Rajmohan Gandhi, the grandson of Mahatma Gandhi who had authored his biography also had acknowledged that his grandfather was 'undoubtedly' ignorant and prejudiced about black South Africans.
Mahatma Gandhi had referred South Africans as 'kaffirs' which is considered a highly offensive racist slur.
Does it makes any difference?
