The legacy of Mahatma Gandhi TODAY rests on the shoulders of the Egyptian people

The legacy of Mahatma Gandhi TODAY rests on the shoulders of the Egyptian people; two years ago they lead a peaceful revolution. Over the last week the news around the world shows violence and the protests from most parts of Egypt.

I have spent the last week in Cairo and would like to state that it is a peace loving proud country of young people, young people who have aspiration to evolve in a democratic peaceful nation. They are proud of their 5000 year history and hospitality is at their core.

It’s a country that has potential to grow into a modern yet traditional, a futuristic yet historical, proud yet peaceful nation …. One that Gandhi would be proud of…….
