  • U Win

    Burmese Ambassador to India

    A national loss to Burmans The world has suffered an irreparable loss today. The father of the Indian nation is now no more. He has become a victim of the forces of evil. We now see to what length such forces of evil will go. We are completely stunned by this most cowardly act and unexpected tragedy. Just as Jesus Christ suffered to save suffering humanity, so has the Mahatma suffered now

    To us, Burmans, it is more than a national loss, no less painful than the loss of our own leaders in last July. The Burmese people had a special reverence for the Mahatma. The world has lost its greatest man in history-the living personification of love and truth.
