"In the face of history's most brutal war, as men the world over live by the rule of kill or be killed, India's leader preaches a gospel of never lifting a weapon or pulling a trigger. Here he tells why":

"The principle of non-violence means, in general terms, that men will deliberately shun all weapons of slaughter and the use of force of any kind whatsoever against their fellow men...Are we naive fools? Is non-violence a sort of dreamy wishful thinking that has never had and can never have any real success against the heavy odds of modern armies and the unlimited application of force and frightfulness?"

"There have been those in India who had weapons but who threw them away after embracing non-violence and offered themselves freely and unafraid to bullets and raw steel...the non-violent soldier must have the capacity to bear severe beatings, torture, mutilations, starvation and worse, and accept these without fear and without anger against those who oppress him."

A few years before this article was written, one of Ganhdi's most trusted aids turned on him and became a Fascist - you can click here to read about him...
