“The bust of Mahatma Gandhi in Hiroshima will take forward the idea of non-violence. It is a great moment for me to know that the Bodhi tree that I gifted to the Japanese PM has been planted here in Hiroshima so that people can understand the importance of peace when they come here. I pay my respect to Mahatma Gandhi,” the PM said. He added that the bust of Mahatma Gandhi will take forward the idea of non-violence.
Following the ideals of Mahatma Gandhi
He added, “I want to thank the Japanese Government for placing the bust of Mahatma Gandhi here in Hiroshima and giving me the opportunity to unveil it. We should all follow the ideals of Mahatma Gandhi and walk on the path of the welfare of the world. This will be the real tribute to Mahatma Gandhi.”
On the unveiling of Mahatma Gandhi’s bust in Hiroshima, the mayor of the town Matsui Kazumi said, “Mahatma Gandhi was a very respected human being who embodied non-violence throughout his life.
