Gandhi-Bot beer label: American brewery issues apology

  • A US-based brewery has apologized for placing an image of Mahatma Gandhi, India’s ‘Father of the Nation,’ on its beer cans, according to media reports.

    The apology came after a lawyer in India filed a petition in a court in Hyderabad city, saying that the New England Brewing Company had insulted the great Indian independence leader.  

    The brand with Gandhi’s picture is labelled Gandhi-Bot.

    In an email apology, the firm was quoted as saying that its intention was to “pay homage and celebrate a great man who we respect greatly.”
