Tushar Gandhi also runs the Mahatma Gandhi Foundation. He is the Chairman of Australian Indian Rural Development Foundation (AIRDF).


In 1988, he joined the Socialist Party but switched to the Congress in 1995.


In December 2001, Tushar Gandhi negotiated with American marketing firm CMG Worldwide to use the Mahatma’s image in an advertisement for a credit card company. This perceived betrayal of Gandhian ideals was followed by a public outcry forcing him to cancel the deal.

In his book Let’s Kill Gandhi, Tushar blames Brahmins for assassinating Mahatma Gandhi. Critics have claimed that the book defames all Brahmins. Tushar has stressed that his claims relate only to "a certain group of Brahmins from Pune [who] were continuously attempting on the life of my great grandfather" rather than to Brahmins in general.
