Vandalism on Name[edit]

RSS/BJP goons frequently edit the name as Daniel Gandhi to portray Mr. Thirumurugan Gandhi as Christian which is baseless propaganda for May 17 Movement, the movement he belongs, exposed BJP government's anti-people policies such as signing WTO agreement to destroy PDS system, demonetization is to force move people in cashless and bring common man in tax system, terming methane extraction as hydrocarbon project, Jallikattu issues and many more. Vandalism on the name must be stopped or must provide credible citation.

And again the vandalism continues. On 15th June 2017, users Srisoftram and Bullabong made 3 changes by changing the name. Reverted it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 10:01, 16 June 2017 (UTC)

POV issues[edit]

There have been different descriptions of his occupation in the article: "activist" was replaced with "seccessionist" (diff), then "social reformer" (diff), which was then put in scare quotes by an editor who also added "separatist" (diff). None of the cited sources that I checked call him a "seccessionist" or "separatist". The closest is perhaps this source, but calling him a separatist by citing this article would in my opinion constitute original research. I will change the word back to "activist", which is the most neutral of the alternatives and the one which is most often used on the cited sources. Please bring discussion of the matter here.
