Yes I do feel the same way. Gandhi was only successful because he fought an opponent with a conscience: the British. Had he be born under any other empire his non-violent approach would never have been successful.
I’m also married to a woman of Jewish extraction. Gandhi’s views of the Holocaust are rarely reported because they make him appear deranged. Here’s what he had to say. Source: Repudiating Gandhian pacifism in the face of mass murder
“Looking back on the Holocaust Gandhi stated, “Hitler killed five million Jews. It is the greatest crime of our time. But the Jews should have offered themselves to the butcher’s knife. They should have thrown themselves into the sea from cliffs. As it is, they succumbed anyway in their millions.” He also said that had the Jews committed collective suicide, that would have been “heroism.””
Gandhi also had this to say about Britain’s Darkest Hour when it alone resisted Nazism.
“Gandhi wrote to the British during the war, “This manslaughter must be stopped. You are losing; if you persist, it will only result in greater bloodshed. Hitler is not a bad man.””
Yes Mahatma, Hitler was a bad man. But you were blind to that at the time, and thankfully the British didn’t take your advice.
Gandhi’s reputation hasn’t aged well outside of India. And it isn’t aging well with the Indian diaspora either.
