They are right in saying so because Mahatma Gandhi had inspired the American civil rights movement that hailed one of Americas most remarkable social and political transformations. Besides, Gandhi believed and developed the distinctive philosophy of non-violence. This philosophy has influenced so many great figures of world history from Jawaharlal Nehru to the Reverend Martin Luther King Jr to Aung San Suu Kyi.Gandhi was a man of vision and action, who asked many of the most profound questions that face humankind as it struggles to live in a community

Mahatma is remembered for his efforts to build religious amity. Above all else, however, Gandhi worked tirelessly to free his nation and helped direct India into a new era of democracy.

Bapu's insistance on non violence is indeed noble, but also that meant:

1. Colonial collaborators were not only forgiven but were also given the free green light to continue working in their former positions- the Police is the most naked example. In 1946, some police were disrobing women on orders from Britain, but in 1947 they suddenly became the protectors of the same ppl they disrobed just a fiscal year back.

2. India inherited a colonial armed force, not one native to India. The Indian ARmy of colonial England was chartered, structured and organizationally run reflecting the British economy & Britain's needs in India. So when we became free, we inherited an Army structure & organization which makes us much more weak than our potential. To examplify, we couldn't even hold a simple Chinese infantr ...more
