Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi

The great apostle of Hindu-Muslim unity had to commit:
1) “In so far as the charge is correct, the Musslamans take less interest (in freedom movement) because they do not yet regard India as their home of which they must feel proud. Many (Muslims) regard themselves, quite wrongly, I think, as belonging to race of conquerors”. (Young India, April 2, 1925)
2) “The Mussalaman being generally in a minority has, as a class, developed into a bully.” (Young India, June 19, 1924)
3) “Musslamans have an ordeal to pass through. There can be no doubt hat they are too free with the free and the pistol.” (Young India, December 30, 1942)
My own experience but confirms the opinion that the Mussalaman as a rule is a bully and the Hindu, as a rule is a coward. (The Biography of Gandhiji, written by Dhanhanjay Keer, published by Popular Prakashan, Mumbai, 1973; page 402)
