Gandhians Push Nevada Monument


Led by Rajan Zed, the Hindu chaplain recently chosen by Senator Harry Reid to open the U.S. Senate in prayer, a group of clerics is meeting with Nevada Governor Jim Gibbons to demand a state-sanctioned Gandhi Monument. They are also demanding the mayors of Las Vegas and Reno erect life-size statues of Gandhi in their cities.

As documented by, this man obviously deserves no such honors. To protest the proposed Nevada Gandhi Monument and Gandhi statues, please contact the office of Governor Jim Gibbons.

September 15, 2007 article from Sify News:

New York: An interfaith committee has been formed in the US state of Nevada to push for the building of a monument in honour of Mahatma Gandhi in the capital and erection of his statues in two other cities.

Members of the Gandhi Monument Committee plan to meet with Governor Jim Gibbons shortly to press him for establishment of the monument in Carson City and to make representations to the mayors of Las Vegas and Reno for erecting life-size statues of the Mahatma in the two cities.

Announcing the formation of the committee, conveners Reverend Gene Savoy Jr and Rajan Zed said their aim is to commemorate the philosophy of non-violence and peace.

The Council comprises Father Charles T Durante (Catholic), Pastor Carl Wilfrid (Lutheran), Father George C Bratiotis (Greek Orthodox), Reverend John J Auer (Methodist), Reverend Alan Dorway (Presbyterian), Imam Abdul Barghouthi (Muslim), Rajan Zed (Hindu), Reverend Philip Bryan (Buddhist), Rabbi Myra Soifer (Jew), Trip Barthel (Bahai), Reverend Laurie Chappelle (Episcopalian), Reverend Gene Savoy Jr (International Community of Christ), and Irwin Sharp Fish Sr (Native American).

The Committee has already started a signature campaign among the clergy in support of their proposals.
