Tributes to Gandhiji

  • Lord Halifax

    former Viceroy of India

    Few like him in all history The news of Mahatma Gandhi's murder is the news of a great tragedy to India and to the cause for which, at anytime, he was willing to give his life.

    No one has tried to serve India with greater devotion, and his friends in India and elsewhere will only hope that the lesson and effect of his tragic death may be to bring all his countrymen to understand and practise the principles that he so constantly and faithfully preached.

    I suppose there can be few men in all history who, by personal character and example, have been able so deeply to influence the thought of their generation.
