Mahatma Gandhi legacy a great example for reconciliation 700 01

President Maithripala Sirisena has observed that Mahatma Gandhi’s legacy was a great example for true reconciliation.

President Sirisena made these observations in Parliament on Friday participating in the Special Adjournment debate on the Commemoration of the 150th Birth Anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi.

During his address, President Sirisena said:  “When India gained independence, he urged that Pakistan should not be made a separate country. He was in tears as he requested Muhammad Ali Jinnah, not to ask for a separate country. But his request was not accepted. Now, look at the long prevailing Indo - Pakistani conflict. How much has it affected the economy of these two countries? Look at the billions of money allocated by both these countries for security purposes. How many were killed?

Mahatma Gandhi was not a politician, but a humanist who gathered and led all contemporary leaders with a non-violent approach. Mahatma Gandhi led the people who were suppressed by British colonial rule towards independence, cherishing discipline, order, patience and love. He was an example not only to our country, but to the entire world.”
