Tributes to Gandhiji

  • Acharya J.B. Kripalani

    ex-President of the Indian National Congress

    His faith stood the test His death only proves that the world is not yet ready for his doctrine of truth and ahimsa as applied by him to individual and group life. The way of truth and non-violence is yet the way of martyrdom as it has been throughout history.

    His faith in the moral law was most- seriously tried by recent events, yet he stood the test. His faith did not falter in the darkest hour of his life. Gandhiji always held that the rigour of the moral law required that one must magnify one's own faults and those of one's community and minimise the faults of others and of other communities. It is only thus that the moral law can be truly fulfilled, and when so fulfilled the results must be good. The man, and the nation that work in the light of this moral law can never come to grief. Where there is Dharma ultimate victory is assured.
