I have always held that though the Mahatma Gandhi was an exceptional man, too much credit was given to him for india’s Independence. 30 years before him, Sri Aurobindo, a true yogi and avatar, had advocated the expulsion of the British from India- by force if necessary. Secondly, Gandhi’s non violence had terrible consequences for the Hindus, not only during Partition, but at the time of the Khalifat movement. Lastly, there are dark areas in Gandhi’s life, particularly when it came to sexuality, to his cosying-up up with Hitler & his advice to the Jews to let themselves be slaughtered and during his time in South Africa and England. He remade himself when he came to India and fashioned a new personality

  1. always felt that Gandhi and nehru like today marxist ‘Secular’ brigade were products of the Brilliant war strategy of Macaulay and Marx, they were used by the Brits to divide and rule and were left behind as the new colonisers. that is why when our gurukulas were destroyed and sanskrit taken to germany, English education was only taught to 10% of the chosen population. so that colonial capitalism model can continue. and the non-violence was a hugely successful campaign as it was only for India as was Buddha. the rest of the world mainly the white men used only violence to destroy the 45 civilisations of the world. oh by the way these are also Gandhi’s words

    It is better to be violent, if there is violence in our hearts, than to put on the cloak of nonviolence to cover impotence.

    Gandhi also advocated justified violence over the “cowardice” of submission. Again, this is in his own words:

    …Hence also do I advocate training in arms for those who believe in the method of violence. I would rather have India resort to arms in order to defend her honor than that she should in a cowardly manner become or remain a helpless witness to her own dishonor. – M.K. Gandhi, The Doctrine of the Sword.
    so you see the non-violence movement was a lethal weapon to destroy India and the outcome is seen even post 270 years of colonisation, Why 270 because Congress & Marx, two sides of same coin continued the colonisation,

    Sir

    I agree with you.

    There are two categories of freedom fighters –

    1. Those who knew that freedom is a birthright. This category compiles of likes of Shri Aurbindo and Lokmanya Bal Gangadhar Tilak.

    2. Those who went to England for studies and worked as lawyers ext and treated as second class citizens and they came back to join the struggle for freedom.

  3. Dear Mr. Gautier:

    I have a fundamental disagreement with your post.

    Whatever good Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi might have done for the country, he undid it all by promoting the supercilious Jawaharlal Nehru over Sardar Vallabhai Patel. Therefore, Gandhi is indirectly responsible for the nightmare of Nehruvian “sickularism,” socialism, and mediocrity that plagues the country even today.

    One of the hallmarks of a great leader is the ability to nominate a worthy successor, and can anyone dispute that Gandhi failed miserably on that count?

    Therefore, Gandhi is by no means a great man. He does not deserve the term “Mahatma.” He is by no means the father of the nation, and no such title has been officially bestowed on him.

    It is nauseating to see Gandhi’s descendants, such as Rajmohan Gandhi and Tushar Gandhi, behave as if they have halos around their heads. They are no different from anybody else, and Rajmohan Gandhi is even a prime example of a Dhimmi.

    On an unrelated note, Nehru does not deserve the title of “Panditji.” Do any of his decisions, such as personally directing the Indo-China war, taking the Kashmir issue to the United Nations, and agreeing to Article 370, seem like they were influenced by any intelligence, let alone learning?

    Thank you.

    Pranam Sir
    What is your opinion on the continuing migrant crisis in Europe. Muslims over the world are supposed to be brothers.Then why don’t “Brothers” from Gulf states are coming for help of Syrian and Iraqi muslims. Why they have been left on goodwill of infidel Christians of Europe.
    And about the migrants to Europe- what about the dream of Islamizitation of Europe. What about converting Christian Europeans into muslims?
    All over the internet several muslim websites feature stories of people of other religions embracing islam. The number of converts resemble score tally of some game. I have seen several websites that claim France, Canada, Britain,Germany, Sweden etc. will become muslim majority countries within so and so years.
    Where else will muslims escape civil wars and genocide then? When whole of world will become muslim. To Mars or Jupiter.

  7. If Arundhati Roy is supporting this, be very suspicious of this book. They are trying to take down Hinduism’s leader who had a very great reputation around the world. This will not be just an assault on Gandhi but also on Hindus and Hinduism. They will start to blame Gandhi’s actions in SA on Hinduism even though in the article it says:
    “Faisal Devji, Oxford University academic and author of The Impossible Indian: Gandhi and the Temptation of Violence who has endorsed the book, distanced himself from its conclusions.

    Devji said that he had conveyed his reservations to the authors when he read the manuscript and got them to make a number of changes, but was still “not satisfied”.

    “Yes I did endorse it, but not for the argument about race. The authors don’t seem to get the point that Gandhi was doing his job as a lawyer when he made most of the comments they criticise.

    “He was hit red to defend Indian merchants in a racially defined society, and could only do so in those terms. And these terms were in fact very familiar all over Africa, with Indians, Arabs and Africans making similar arguments to upgrade their status within racial hierarchies in East Africa, for instance,” Devji told me.”

    The above critical point will be lost.

    Books like this also freeze Gandhi in a point in time. People change and grow. When he was young he tried to fit in European society. As he grew older he no longer wished to do that. Notice he was not wearing any European suits as an old man. So question those who freeze Gandhi in his younger less evolved days.

    Read the “Rules for Radicals” by Alinsky.
    “#13 “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions.”
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rules_for_Radicals

    This is what is happening to Gandhi thanks to Marxists, and Christian supremacists.
