Rajghat event a national shame: Tushar

Allowing the US Security personnel to bring in a sniffer dog at Rajghat prior to US President George Bush's visit to the samadhi of the Father of the Nation was a "national shame", Mahatma Gandhi's great grandson Tushar Gandhi has said. "The Americans have insulted all the Indians by this act," Gandhi said addresing a Congress conference here last night.

More than by the security checks at the samadhi, Gandhi said he was hurt by the "light manner" in which the country has reacted to the incident. "Americans generally do not bother about people's feelings. By allowing the American security to conduct security check, the security liasion officer of India has proven himself guilty," Gandhi said.

If a similar incident had taken place at Muhammad Ali Jinnah's tomb in Pakistan, it would have led to a public outcry, he said.
