The Israeli occupation forces (IOF) on Tuesday barred Rajmohan Gandhi, the grandson of Indian independence leader Mahatma Gandhi, from entering Gaza Strip.

Gandhi expressed absolute sorrow for not being able to visit Gaza, adding that he was deeply depressed over the scenes of repression he witnessed in the Palestinian lands.

He said that the Israeli talk about a Palestinian state in light of those de facto conditions was "meaningless", adding that the separation wall, settlements and bypass roads were more horrific than what he imagined before visiting Palestine.

Gandhi said that the Israeli government was treating Palestinians as second class citizens and was robbing their land.

He said he was deeply touched over the story of prisoner Fakhri Al-Barghouthi who had been held in jail for 33 years and could not meet his two sons, whom he left as little children, until they were detained by the IOF soldiers.

Gandhi said that he would publicize the Palestinian suffering in India, the USA and any place he visits, adding that he would also exert efforts for the release of Palestinian prisoner

Raj Mohan Gandhi\\\'s Visit Dr. Ambekar
I am sure the Human Suffering must be brought in to the Public domain. There is no second thought about it. Be it Mr. Raj Mohan Gandhi, Mr. Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King, or any other Human Rights activist. The emotions and suffering of the people must be brought to Public and Governments attention. Selective attention of People\\\'s suffering of Palestine has a Political agenda. Mr. Raj Mohan Gandhi very well knows that in his own country \\\"Kashmiri Pundits\\\" are languishing as refuges for the last nearly 20 years. Did he take a notice of it and brought it to the notice of the Government Of India or the Indian Media or the Politicians? Palestine is a remote place to India. When his own home is burning with the issues of Human Rights abuses why does he wants to plead for Palestine People. IS this not a selective political mileage to undertake the issue rather than a true cause of Human Rights? I live it to your to your imagination and intellect to judge it for yourself. Dr. Ambekar.
