Hawzah News Agency – Indian Independence Leader Mahatma Gandhi, said about Imam Hussain (a.s.), “I have not brought for the people of India anything new. I have conveyed to the people of India what I have searched about the history of the hero of Karbala. If we have to save India, it is necessary that we follow the same way that Hussain, Son of Ali followed. I learned from Hussain how to achieve victory while being oppressed.”
Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was an Indian activist who was the leader of the Indian independence movement against British rule. Employing nonviolent civil disobedience, Gandhi led India to independence and inspired movements for civil rights and freedom across the world.
In India, he is also called Bapu and Gandhi ji, and known as the Father of the Nation.
