Comment: Gandhi

(See in situ)


Gandhi was a practitioner of non-violent opposition.
He did not believe in teaching violence.
However, he was not opposed to violence.
Those who wish to be defended should defend themselves,
but not expect others to do the work for them.

"Cowardice is impotence worse than violence. The coward desires revenge, but being afraid to die, he looks to others, maybe to the government of the day, to do the work of defense for him. A coward is less than a man. He does not deserve to be a member of a society of men and women."

"Among the many misdeeds of the British rule in India, history will look upon the act of depriving a whole nation of arms, as the blackest."
– Mahatma Gandhi
