Who Was Gandhi?
Gandhi has been called the “Father of India” and his name is often invoked as a synonym for peaceful revolution, compassion, and racial harmony. Many leaders, scholars, and academics have continued to uphold this narrative of Gandhi for decades. But is there another side to Gandhi’s legacy which has been suppressed? This booklet examines the topic of whether Gandhi was a racist or a revolutionary by delving into his words and actions on three major topics — personal morality, the caste system, and the African people.
