Tributes to Gandhiji

  • General Douglas MacArthur

    C-in-C, Allied Forces in Japan

    A prophet ahead of the times Nothing more revolting has occurred in the history of the modern world than the senseless assassination of this venerable man. That he should die by violence is one of those bitter anachronisms that seems to refute all logic.

    In the evolution of civilization, if it is to survive, all men cannot fail eventually to adopt his belief that the process of mass application of force to resolve contentious issues is fundamentally not only wrong but contains within itself the germs of self-destruction.

    Gandhiji, however, was one of those prophets who lived far ahead of the times.
