We got freedom from britishers by peaceful means under leadership of gandhi is false propoganda....it was presented so to suit the political set-up....it was designed to ignore subhash chandra bose who opposed gandhi and congress...and so every other like minded high freedom fighter like bhagat singh,azad,ashfaq etc. were cornered....congress has been successful in it's attempt ....it encashed gandhi's name.....his means of peaceful agitation still suits the ruling class today....so gandhi and his means were delibertately propogated to suit the political set-up........

This is the biggest myth.gandhi ji was the most cunning and selfish politician of his times.Had Bhagat Singh ,Azad,Subhash Chandra Bose not been there we would not have achieved our freedom.When Bhagat Singh, Rajguru and Sehdev were sentenced to death Gandhi ji could have spoken to British and saved their lives , but he did not do so as his peronal image would have suffered in comparison to these three.He was responsible for partition of India and the massacre that followed.He forced Indian govt. to give alot of money to Pakistan at that time.He forced Nehru as PM over Patel and we can see how Nehru's gift -Kashmir problem is still there.

"those who forget the history are condemned to repeat it."..........we seem to be on the same line if we still chose to stay blind to historical facts.
