"Every winter, a statue of Mahatma Gandhi at Carleton University is
affectionately adorned with hats and scarves to keep it from getting too cold.

But this tribute is a lie, say a growing number of critics, who are demanding
the university remove the statue of the Indian activist. They say despite his
admirable reputation, Gandhi was also a misogynist, a racist towards black
Africans and a supporter of the caste system in India."

It was M.K. Ghandi's personal honesty, particularly about his own views and
prejudices, that let him treat with Kings and Black tribals alike with justice
and equity. These "students" have no appreciation of History or understanding
of it's motives and the way they're going they never will.

The "growing number" of students is probably something like 2.
