Armed guards deployed at non-violence preaching Mahatma Gandhi’s memorial


The ‘armed’ security personnel have been deployed at ‘Rajghat” for the first time and before the 67th independence day amidst terrorism threats and intelligence inputs,  ‘Rajghat’ is the memorial of Mahatma Gandhi who is also known as the father of the nation in India and has advocated non-violence all through India’s freedom struggle from British rule.

Although there was need of armed guards to secure the memorial but decision on the issue has been set aside over Gandhi’s principles of non-violence and ‘ahimsa’ The memorial is situated on the banks of the river Yamuna, where VVIPs visit to pay their respects to the national icon. Common people also visit the memorial round the year and is also a tourist destination for tourists visiting Delhi. All other nine memorials situated nearby Rajghat like Shakti Sthal ( Indira Gandhi), Veer Bhumi ( Rajeev Gandhi), Vijay Sthal ( Lal Bahadur Shastri) etc. have been brought under armed security cover since 2004.
