Johannesburg, South Africa: Statue of Mahatma Gandhi defaced

Johannesburg in South Africa was in news as on 13 April 2015 a statue of Mahatma Gandhi was defaced by a group of people calling him a racist. The group had placards that read: Racist Gandhi must fall.

The statue in Johannesburg is believed to be the only one in the world showing Gandhi as a young lawyer in his court robes.  

The statue is on a public transport hub square which was renamed Gandhi Square because the offices in which he practiced law during his stay in the city are on the periphery of the square.
