Ban book on Gandhi: BJP leader

New Delhi: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Vijay Jolly Friday asked the Delhi government to ban a controversial book on Mahatma Gandhi, accusing its American author of distorting history.

"The book is a slur on investigative book writing," Jolly said, referring to the "Great Soul: Mahatma Gandhi and His Struggle with India".

Jolly made the demand at a meeting here also attended by party leaders Arun Jaitley and Arti Mehra.

The book claims that Mahatma Gandhi had a German-Jewish body builder lover.

"(Delhi) Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit should follow the footsteps of her Gujarat counterpart Narendra Modi and ban the book," he said.
