Gandhi - founder of terror in South Asia

Gandhi's much talked about "Quit India" Movement was anything but "non-violent." It would be appropriate to say that as a leader he was the pioneer of violence in South Asia.

As reported in History Politics by the UCLA

At the outbreak of war in 1939 between Britain and Germany, India was also declared to be at war with Germany as it constituted part of the British empire. The Congress took the view that while it opposed fascism, it could render no support to the British either. Consequently, neutrality was the official policy of the Congress. In an effort to bring the British to the negotiating table, Gandhi launched his 'Quit India' movement in August 1942 and issued from a large meeting ground in Bombay the call to 'do or die.' Indians were to wage one last struggle to achieve independence, or die in that attempt. Elaborate plans were made to offer non-violent resistance. The 'Quit India' movement was followed, nonetheless, by large-scale violence directed at railway stations, telegraph offices, government buildings, and other emblems and institutions of colonial rule. There were widespread acts of sabotage, and the government held Gandhi responsible for these acts of violence, suggesting that they were a deliberate act of Congress policy. Gandhi resolutely denied these charges, but the deadlock was not to be resolved. It has been suggested by other scholars that though Gandhi himself did not authorize violence, he had grown skeptical of the efficacy of non-violence .... Others have suggested that the 'Quit India' movement was a failure in that it invited the government to unleash repression .. The 'Quit India' movement remains, in any event, among the most controversial episodes in Gandhi's life and modern Indian history.
