Tributes to Mahatma Gandhi


(From Indian and Global leaders)
Life of love and truth
Gandhiji's death is truly a loss to mankind which sorely needs the living light of those ideals of love and tolerance for which he strove and died. In her hour of deep sorrow India is proud to have given to the world a man of his imperishable renown and is confident that his example will be a source of inspiration and strength in the fulfilment of her destiny...
India, indeed the world, will not see the like of him again, perhaps, for centuries.
Our one consolation in this hour of unparalleled grief is that his life of truth, tolerance and love towards his fellows may inspire our troubled world to save itself by following his noble example.

- Lord Mountbatten

A leader of his people, unsupported by only outward authority; a politician whose success rests not upon craft nor mastery of technical devices, but simply on the convincing power of his personality; a victorious fighter who has always scorned the use of force; a man of wisdom and humility, armed with resolve and inflexible consistency, who has devoted all his strength to the uplifting of his people and the betterment of their lot; a man who has confronted the brutality of Europe with the dignity of the simple human being, and thus at all times risen superior.
Generations to come, it may be, will scarce believe that such one as this ever in flesh and blood walked upon this earth.

Albert Einstein 

Impressions of Gandhi? You might well ask for someone's impression of the Himalayas. - Bernard Shaw


Just an old man in a loin cloth in distant India. yet when he died, humanity wept. - Louis Fischer

On Frontier Gandhi's death anniversary, a reminder of how the Indian subcontinent has lost its way

On Frontier Gandhi's death anniversary, a reminder of how the Indian subcontinent has lost its way

Peace and communal amity that Khan Abdul Ghaffar Khan toiled for all his life is a distant dream today.

Ajaz Ashraf

On the 30th death anniversary of Khan Abdul Ghaffar Khan today, it is apt to remember him as the man who challenged the subcontinent’s pet stereotypes. He was a Pakhtun or Pathan from the North West Frontier Province, now called Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, where people are said to still subscribe to the code of revenge. Yet Frontier Gandhi, as Ghaffar Khan was popularly known, led a non-violent movement against the British in the province, his followers refusing to retaliate even as they were mowed down.
