Know where #Gandhi ‘s love for Islam & preaching #Ahimsa to Hindus came from!
"My family was Pranami,though we are Hindu by birth, in our temple priest used to read from Quran & Geeta”. Gandhi
Prannath Thakur, desciple of Devchandra Maharaj established #Pranami tradition.
17th century, Maharaja Chhatrasal with Shivaji’s blessings fought the Mughals for freedom of Bundelkhand. Before the battle Prannath blessed him to be victorious & gave him his sword & angocha.
#Chhatrasal fought 80 battles with #Aurangzeb & won almost all!
Prannath would invite the converted Muslims & Hindus to dine together & cite Quran & Srimad Bhagwat in his teachings( maye be to connect with the new converts & bring them back)?
After Mahamati Prannath, #Chhatrasal promoted Krishna Pranami tradition of Mahamati Prannath.
With Islamic onslaught of forceful conversions of #Hindus, Swami Prannath’s idea of #Pranami too
aimed at re-conversions of Hindus like Maharshi Deval & Acharya Medhatithi.
If he so believed in #Ahimsa why’d he give #Chhatrasal a sword to kill Aurangzeb?
#Gandhi यदि श्री कृष्ण से प्रेरित होते तो धर्म की रक्षा के लिए ‘धर्म हिंसा तथैव च:’ का पाठ पढ़ाते!

“अहिंसा परमो धर्मः धर्म हिंसा तथैव च:”

Non-violence is the ultimate dharma
So too is violence, in service of Dharma!
But it seems #Gandhi ‘s absolute non violence was inspired by Mohammed’s dar al-Islam!!
“A woman should not resist rape, rather defeat her assailant remaining passive & silent". - Gandhi!

#Gandhi to 🌍
"Let Hitler,Mussolini take possession of your (British) island,allow man, woman,child to be slaughtered,refuse to owe allegiance to them”

”I don’t consider Hitler to be b as bad as depicted,he's showing an amazing ability gaining victories"!
#Gandhi lacked understanding of Nazi evil & political realism!
He advised Jews in Palestine to use Satyagraha!?
“Cry for national home for Jews doesn’t make much appeal to me
Palestine belongs to Arabs in the same way that England belongs to English or France to the French.”!!
#Gandhi accused Jewish people of not following Satyagraha,
instead, urged Jews to pray for their prosecutors;
“I don’t despair because Hitler’s German heart hasn’t yet melted,on the contrary I plead for more suffering & still more till melting has become visible to naked eye.”
“Hitler killed 5 million Jews. It’s the greatest crime of our time but Jews should’ve offered themselves to the butcher’s knife, should’ve thrown themselves into sea from cliffs,it would’ve aroused 🌍&people of German,as it is they succumbed anyway in millions”.
#Gandhi in 1946.
For #Gandhi ,hardships were nobel & righteous,he spread blessings of poverty & humility!
On visiting Bihar after 15 Jan 1934 earthquake:
“Bihar earthquake was providential retribution for failure of #Hindus to eradicate untouchability, it was a chastisement for their sins”.
Kasturba wasn’t untouched by his idea of #Ahimsa either!
When they had law clerks living with him
he made pregnant Kasturba carry chamber pots down stairs outside the house,she wept #Gandhi lost temper, dragged her shouting- she must carry buckets of excrement cheerfully!
In 1908, when #Gandhi was in prison for Civil disobedience, Kasturba fell seriously ill, though he could've gotten released, he wrote,
"if it is destined that u should die,it is preferable that u go before me"
#Gandhi forbade injecting penicillin, flown in from Calcatta by his son Dedvdas, for dying Kasturba,
when she begged for castor oil,
he said,
"giveup medicine now"
instead, made followers sing bhajans.
Kasturba died of the slow, painful illness the next day!
Penicillin couldn’t have saved her but allowing it would've meant bankruptcy of faith on my part,she passed in my lap,I'm happy beyond measure #Gandhi
His secretary,Nirmal Kumar Bose wrote detailed memoir of his experiments of testing wow of celibacy by sleeping with naked girls

Quit India 'misstep' damaged chances of United India more than any single act of British. #Gandhi & #Congress handed #Jinha 16 fold/ 75% increase in his support in general elections in 1945!!
British left India because of #Gandhi ‘s #Ahimsa , is a comforting fiction. British Empire didn’t decline,it fell on its own sword!
I.N.A. activities of Netaji #SubhashChandraBose
Royal Indian Navy Mutiny
🇮🇳 was no longer a profit centre because of wartime activities!
