The Proponents of Non-Violence
Srila Praphupada Speaking –
“Sometimes in the year 1950 or ’51 I went to Jhansi, and it happened so that the…, the friend in whose house I was staying, he was a leader, and there was a meeting for Gandhi’s disappearance day. (Mahatma Gandhi also known as
Father of the Nation, played a key role in the India’s struggle for freedom against the British’s Colonial rule)
So I was asked to speak. At that time I was not sannyasi.
I was asked to speak something on nonviolence. So I explained that violence means if you have got some right and if somebody by force stops you to utilize your right.“
