Gandhi statue to be unveiled near Churchill's in London

A statue of Indian independence leader Mahatma Gandhi is to be unveiled on Saturday at the heart of the British establishment which once loathed him for his campaign against imperial rule. Gandhi will join figures including Britain’s World War II leader Winston Churchill, who described him as a half-naked “fakir”, in London’s Parliament Square, opposite Big Ben and the House of Commons. The giant bronze statue will be unveiled by Indian Finance Minister Arun Jaitley at a ceremony attended by Prime Minister David Cameron, Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan and Gandhi’s grandson, Shri Gopalkrishna Gandhi.
