To me he is the reason we have our Independence, he is he reason we are a democratic country, he is the reason we are free, free to live the way we want, free to think and to voice our thoughts. He is not called Father of our Nation for nothing.
If he did not speak up, we would still be living under oppression by the British. Just think how our life would have turned out?
And would we be able to have Barbecue and Beer? Definitely not a chance.
I came across this ad through India Uncut, listed at Ads of the World
This ad makes no sense to me.
Gandhi was a vegan, he did not drink. And if had not spoken up, would we be a free country still? I hold him in really high esteem and this ad has me offended.
The copy is really stupid. First you say "Life is easier if you don't speak up" and then say "debate" How is one supposed to debate if you do not speak?
This campaign is insensitive, lacks understanding, plain stupid and highly irresponsible.
Take a look and if anyone can enlighten me with a different point of view, please do.

Edited to add: Denmark's leading newspaper is promoting debate over public issues. Turns out they have used Nelson Mandela and Dalai Lama. I still think the Ads have failed to bring out the message. Source
