Viscount Louis Mountbatten, the last British Viceroy of India:

"Mahatma Gandhi will go down in history on a par with Buddha

and Jesus Christ"

Mahatma Gandhi's spiritual progress towards truth and the principle of non-violence led India to

freedom from its foreign rulers. His deep conviction against the unjustices of the caste system and

religious divide between Hindus and Muslims in India succeeded in uniting the country during his

life time.
