Celebrating Nelson Mandela as a 'Jewel of India'

Commented Jul 20, 2013 at 21:20:00 in Religion

“Soni's observation that Gandhi was concerned only with Indians while Mandela went to bat for all South Africans is rooted in ignorance. Gandhi's writings show that he was very aware of the discrimination and low status of Black South Africans. But in a situation where his activism for Indians was itself considered with little tolerance by a brutally racist regime, Gandhi was hardly in a position to set himself up as a representative also of Black Africans. It would probably have got him killed in short order.”
