My 2 cents. This is true that British were interested in getting Gandhi out of SA, but I don't think that Gandhi was a British agent. He was a genuine freedom fighter, of his own kind.
I am not pointing to the somewhat violent imagery one gets by the words "sacrifice of a few individuals" but the general Communist / progressive ideas presented there - end of the exploitation of human by human, and India to become a society run by the workers and peasants who put in the actual efforts because of which a society functions other than through the thinkers. This is in contrast to the heavily theist and ritualist approach of Gandhi. Jinnah didn't like Gandhi calling on Indian Muslims to join the so-called Khilafat Movement on behalf of the British colonialists because Jinnah thought this movement will lead to the regressives and the priests among the Muslims gain prominence. Subhas too cut away from the Congress after having set up a branch within called All India Forward Bloc which spoke for a Socialist India after the British. In all, all three - Jinnah, Bhagat and Subhas were Socialist or Communist while Gandhi was an absolute theist and ritualist and traditionalist.Bhagat Singh stated the truth when he said, “You can kill individuals, but not the ideas. Great empires crumbled, but the ideas survived.” He wanted India not only to be free but also a sovereign, socialist republic of workers and peasants. In a leaflet thrown in the Central Assembly, he declared, “We dream of a glorious future, when man will be enjoying perfect peace and full liberty. But, the sacrifice of few individuals at the altar of the great revolution that will bring freedom to all, rendering the exploitation of man by man impossible, is inevitable.”
It was world war2 and helping British with our participation which won us our freedom. Gandhi and others did put pressure on British which culminated in gaining independence. I will not discount his efforts in forcing issues in gaining limited rights.It was not Ghandhi and and his weak band of beggars who earned us freedom but Netaji and his patriotic army and Naval and Air force mutiny of 1946
We fought against common enemy British. All our freedom fighters were united in overthrowing British.What a rubbish as a Pakistani I feel offended not because he belong to our enemy but as a person he had values. He was in the favour of peace between Pak and ind. he introduced lawless movements some of his acts can be criticised but come on he was no British agent he was a one of the great leader of the century. This article bear no credibility what so ever. His life was simple and death a tragedy for both neighbours he and Jinnah if the both have lived a bit long would have changed our history
all agents are terminated… zia, Obl, gandhi, saddam and many more
There you go again. Why do you make false and unrelated statements? I cannot comment freely on Jinnah on a Pakistani forum but I can post about SCB and Bhagat Singh.@Skimming, I agree with ^^^. Although what made others like Bhagat Singh, Subhas Chandra Bose and Jinnah oppose him was his penchant for traditionalist religious gatherings and hobnobbing with ritualist crooks. Below text is right from mkgandhi.org and will give you the difference in thinking of Shaheed Bhagat and Gandhi :
Where did you imbibe this propaganda? Do you live in UK or other part of West?Only one man is responsible for India's freedom, Hitler...Gandhi and the rest were a side show.
