Gandhi’s Image on Israeli Liquor Bottles Stirs Controversy In India
Indians expressed outrage over an Israeli brewery allegedly using the image of Mahatma Gandhi on its liquor bottles.
According to National Herald, Mahatma Gandhi National Foundation chairman has written a letter to Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to take up the matter with the manufacturer.
“The image is a mockery of Gandhi wearing a cooling glass, a T-Shirt and an overcoat. On his website hipstoryart.com, there are many pictures and products of Gandhi being made a mockery.”
Mahatma Gandhi National Foundation chairman Eby J Jos had also urged Modi and Netanyahu to instruct Maka Brewery to withdraw the liquor bottle labelled with the image of Gandhi at the earliest.
