Okay, my friend really doesn't like Gandhi.

Me, him, and this other guy like to talk mainly about stupid sh*t in study hall. But we also talk about things like politics, religion, nihilism, and things that lead to nowhere.

So, Gandhi came up, and my friend said he hated Gandhi. The other guy says "Gandhi?", surprised. I asked why. He said; "First of all, he was really racist. Secondly, he was a child molester".

My other friend sort of sarcastically says "Mmhmm...." to show that he thinks he way off on this one. He just replied "Trust me on this one".

So, I personally have never heard any of this stuff about Gandhi. So, I was wondering if you guys have ever heard about this? He believes just about everything he hears from anarchist websites, Zeitgeist, etc. I really don't trust him with 99% of objective facts like these, but I was wondering what you guys think.

I've never heard either of those from any reliable source, although I suppose some of his anti-British speeches could be construed as racist if you tried hard enough.

Didn't Ben Kingsley play a child molester in some movie? Maybe your friend is confusing the actor with a character that he played.

I've heard he was a women abuser and child molester but honestly who isn't these days?

I never heard them from a reliable source, though.

I do know that Gandhi walked barefooted a lot, he was very thin, and his breath was repulsive due to his strange diet, this made him: A super calloused, fragile mystic, hexed by halitosis...

I may be wrong, but didn't he live in South Africa for a while?

Right. And MLK was a black supremacist.

The man stopped eating in an effort to create peace.

I seriously doubt he went around, beating black people with a whip and anally assaulting little boys.

A "taxi" driver that took me from Delhi airport to inner Delhi wasn't a fan of Ghandi either.


Probably was a hardcore Hindu. They didn't like Gandhi much as he was trying to promote religious unity, among other things, and they were pretty convinced all other religions were wrong. Some Hindu fundamentalist guy ended up assassinating Gandhi.

But seriously though, unless you're blinded by religion, how can you hate the guy? It's like hating Bob Marley. Or Jesus.

I think the driver was a Sikh, actually. May be wrong.

Yeah pretty much no one likes the Sikhs in India. They're pretty much the country's Republicans.

And I'm pretty sure was a stand up guy. If he did those things, he probably would've told everyone.
