Tributes to Gandhiji

    This peace-loving man This hour, so sad for our civilisation, has, indeed,-been darkened by the detestable assassination of Gandhi. In killing this peace-loving man, it seems that an attempt has been made to strike a blow at peace. As in all political crimes these fanatics think that by killing a person they will destroy the faith and ideals he represents. But these crimes have only the very opposite effect. They elevate that faith and those ideals and make them shine out all the more. The truth of this has come in the protests and horror which the murder of Gandhi has raised throughout the world.
