I call Gandhi as a ' Chaalak Pakhandi ' ( A cunning hypocrite ). He is the root cause of most of the evils in public life in India today.
I have called him objectively a British agent, a fake and a fraud, who :
(1) furthered the British policy of divide and rule by constantly injecting religion into politics and advocating for decades in his writings and public speeches Hindu religious ideas e.g. Ramrajya, go-raksha ( cow protection ), varnashram dharma ( caste system ), brahmachjarya ( celibacy ), etc ( see Collected Works of Mahatma Gandhi ) which were bound to drive Muslims towards the Muslim League and India towards Partition, and
( 2) who effectively diverted the Indian freedom struggle against the British from the revolutionary direction towards which Bhagat Singh, Surya Sen ( Masterda ), Chandrashekhar Azad, Ashfaqulla, Rajguru, Ram Prasas Bismil, Khudiram Bose and others were taking it to, towards harmless nonsensical channels like satyagrah, and
( 3 ) who was against industrialization, and preached reactionary economic ideas like handspinning by charkha and the fraudulent and deceptive idea of trusteeship.
Such a fake ' Mahatma ' was designated as 'The Father of the Nation' soon after Independence in 1947 ( when the real Father of the Nation was the great Mughal Emperor Akbar ). Consequently, the present pathetic state and low level of Indian public life in India became inevitable.
Unless we strip the mask from the face of this cunning fraud, and expose him as a feudal minded hypocrite serving British imperial interests, while posing to be a saint, we will continue to be befooled by our enemies
