Today I had the honor of reading an article that completely dispelled any and all respect that I had for one Mohatmas Ghandi. For those unfamiliar with this man, he was a leader of the Indian resistance to British rule and a major influence on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in his formulation of non-violent confrontation theory and practice as seen in the Civil Rights Movement in the United States. Indeed in many "Liberal circles" Ghandi is a hero. Well today in Sulekha.com, An Indian website, is an article that damn near made me fall out my seat. The article, entitled Caste in the Middle by Agneya Panja contains the following:
A general belief seems to prevail in the colony that the Indians are little better, if at all, than the savages or natives of Africa. Even the children are taught to believe in that manner, with the result that the Indian is being dragged down to the position of a raw Kaffir. ...
Ours is one continual struggle against a degradation sought to be inflicted upon us by the Europeans, who desire to degrade us to the level of a raw Kaffir whose occupation is hunting, and whose sole ambition is to collect a certain number of cattle to buy a wife with and, then, pass his life in indolence and nakedness....
We believe as much in the purity of race as we think they do, only we believe that they would best serve these interests, which are as dear to us as to them, by advocating the purity of all races, and not one alone. We believe also that the white race of South Africa should be the predominating race....
The whole affair is as much a disgrace to the Indian community as it is to the British Empire. The British rulers take us to be so lowly and ignorant that they assume that, like the Kaffirs who can be pleased with toys and pins, we can also be fobbed off with trinkets.
There is much more of this and I encourage all readers to take a nice look at the article.
So there we have it. Ghandi:White Supremacist Pig.
