UK’s Prime Minister Boris Johnson visited mahatma Gandhi’s Ashram in Ahmedabad, hours after landing on a 2-day visit to India. He was very much impressed with the principles and humble lifestyle of Mahatma Gandhi. Boris said, “I am very happy to be in India and more so in the Ashram of such a legendary man like Mahatma Gandhi.”

 

UK’s PM Boris Johnson much ahead of his visit to India received calls to apologize for something which the British invaders did in the past. It was a colonial-era killing of thousands of tribal people who protested against British imperial rule over 100 years ago. This year’s annual republic day celebrations in Gujarat state reminisced the sacrifices and bravery of the tribal people led by social reformist Motilal Tejawat. He and his supporters back then had protested against high taxes, brutal behaviors, and forced labor.

The Gujarat state government said, “British Major HG Sutton ordered his battalions to open fire, and thousands of corpses lay on the battlefield and 2 nearby wells were overflowing with bloodshed bodies.

Moving on Boris Johnson will be presented with books by the Sabarmati Ashram team, written by Mahatma Gandhi; however, these books never saw the light of the day and were never published back then. He will be gifted with an autobiography of Mirabehn (Madeleine), daughter of a British admiral who joined forces with Mahatma Gandhi and became his disciple.
