Not sure he was a fully paid member of the Nazi Party and wore a Bulgarian scarf on cold days; but some Manchester University students are calling for a statue in honour of the great man to be scrapped as they believe he hated African blacks and was compliant in British colonialism in Africa.

I remember reading about this. My vague recollection was of some articles he wrote for a newspaper where he wasn't keen on african immigrants in India.

Very old news.

So Gandhi was a racist in his 20s ; not unusual for the time, and not really relevant to what he did in later lives. What is this obsession with judging Victorian figures by the standards of the modern day?

He also did some weird things like sleeping in bed with young girls to ‘test his celibacy.’

I agree with your point though, we can’t judge him by today’s standards, and I don’t like how some people completely throw the baby out with the bath water and dismiss everything he accomplished.

The girl behind this wants to become a politician, labour at that... I wonder why she is doing this!?

She also started a motion to ban clapping by the way in case it triggered anxiety

As others have already pointed towards, you need to use context. Both from a historical perspective and in terms of wider activities. This goes for Gandhi and anyone else.

Unfortunately controversy so often works. Look at some of the vapid social commentators (and politicians) we currently have.

Every historical figure should be vilified and all living people need to be face continual reeduction to what ever the latest political fashion changes to.

Obviously a tongue in cheek post, but there are historical figures who do need to be re-reviewed. Like Churchill, I can’t be convinced that he deserves to to be heralded as a hero considering everything he did outside WW2, and the fact that he vocally supported fascism. Yet I was never taught about that side of Churchill at school, or much about the war crimes and crimes against humanity of the British empire in general.

That’s the same all over. The Danes think the Vikings were peaceful traders.

Yep, and I bet Stalin is portrayed fairly sympathetically in Russian schools.
