By  Sep 20, 2019

The Croatia capital, Zagreb, will soon have a new statue of an iconic world politician and civil rights activist, Mahatma Gandhi.

The Zagreb City Council have approved a plan this week to construct a two-metre-high statue to the Indian statesman in the Bundek Lake suburb of the capital. The statue will be financed by the Indian Embassy in Zagreb and will mark the 150th anniversary of the birth of Gandhi.

According to reports on the website HINA the statue will “will feature a bronze bust of Gandhi made by the famous Indian sculptor Ram Vanji Sutar.” And the quote "There is no way to peace, peace is the way" will be engraved on the statue.
