Nepal's gay icon says Gandhi is a hero no matter what!

Nepal's only openly gay public figure Sunil Babu Pant says that "No matter who Gandhi was, straight or gay, he remains a great source of inspirations to countless people in the world, throughout history." This was in response to a question raised to him in India about Gandhi's sexual orientation. "Great Soul", a new book by Pulitzer Prize winning author Joseph Lelyveld reveals Gandhi's love for German-Jewish architect Hermann Kallenbach and has triggered speculation that Gandhi could have been homosexual. This has led to the book being banned in Gujarat, India the birth place of Mohandas KaramChand Gandhi.
