According to sources Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced yesterday that India will build a Gandhi Heritage Centre at a sacred site in Uganda where a portion of Mahatma Gandhi's ashes was immersed to pay homage to the towering leader's universal and timeless values of life and the story of India's own freedom struggle is closely linked to Africa.
Modi said "As we approach the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, there can be no better homage than a Centre to remind us of Africa's role in shaping his mission that even inspired Africa to freedom and justice; and the universal and timeless values of his life and message”. Furthermore at the sacred site in Jinja, 85 kilometre from Kampala, where a statue of Gandhiji now stands, we will build a Gandhi Heritage Centre”.
Moreover Modi, the first Indian prime minister to address the Parliament
of Uganda, said for India, Gandhi was more than just the 21 years that he
spent in Africa, or the First Non-Cooperation Movement he led and the moral
principles of independence movement, or the peaceful means to pursue it, were
not just confined to the boundaries of India or to the future of Indians and it
was a universal quest for liberty, dignity, equality and opportunity for every
human being and did it apply more than in Africa”.
