A racist. A misogynist. A pedophile. He is so blindly idolized that speaking negative about him in an Indian household is .. asking for a slap to the face. Indians, those in the majority, refuse to discuss his faults, wrongdoings, and revolting behavior and ideas. People erect statues of this hypocrite near government buildings to display a sense of cultural awareness, to represent ‘civil disobedience’. People quote him in their discussions of world peace and equity. Entirely ironic. What he preached he could not practice. About what he actually practiced, no one should preach.
