New Delhi: Prof. Apoorvanand Jha, on 146th birth anniversary on Mahatma Gandhi at NDTV said that Gandhiji is against majoritarianism and was blamed for in favour of Indian Muslims during 1946-47 riots.
Mahatma Gandhi was of the view that Hindu-Muslim violence was the result of Britishers who were responsible for this divide and rule policy.
In his seminal ‘Hind Swaraj’, Gandhiji written in 1909, said “If I were overfull of pity for the cow, I should sacrifice my life to save her, but not take my brother’s. This, I hold, is the law of the religion.”
A Muslim man in Uttar Pradesh’s Dadri was brutally murder over rumours that he had consumed beef, by a mob of hundreds.
The inter-faith love, being dubbed as a ‘love jihad’ conspiracy by the BJP is actually a product of myth-making.
