It is being speculated that the agitators in Washington DC protesting against racial violence are the ones who desecrated Gandhi's statue. The agitators targeted Mahatma Gandhi's statue, accusing him of being racist. This is not the first time that Gandhi is being accused of being a racist.
Meanwhile, all the four police officers associated with the death of unarmed black civilian George Floyd have been charged. Demonstrations were held across America to bring justice to George Floyd. Following the massive arson and looting, more than 10,000 agitators were arrested.
