Gandhi: Quit India Speech by Micah Wheland on Prezi

gandhi quit india speech pdf

They will be dealing a mortal blow to China and to Russia if they oppose the freedom of non-violent India which is pleading with bended knees for the fulfillment of debt along overdue. On the other hand, Jinnah, the leader of the Muslim League, was hostile to the idea of unity. It is the very essence of freedom. Quaid-i-Azam Jinnah himself was at one time a Congressman. A non-violent soldier of freedom will covet nothing for himself, he fights only for the freedom of his country. I ask you to consider it from my point of view, because if you approve of it, you will be enjoined to carry out all I say. Every Congressman, whether a Hindu or a Mussalman, owes this duty to the organization to which will render a service to Islam.

Gandhi: Quit India Speech

It came to enable India to play its due part at the present critical juncture It is not a happy position for a big country like India to be merely helping with money and material obtained willy-nilly from her while the United Nations are conducting the war. It came to enable India to play its due part at the present critical juncture It is not a happy position for a big country like India to be merely helping with money and material obtained willy-nilly from her while the United Nations are conducting the war. I have traveled all over India as perhaps nobody in the present age has. We shall sink or swim with them. I believe that in the history of the world, there has not been a more genuinely democratic struggle for freedom than ours. If in the present crisis, when the earth is being scorched by the flames of Himsa and crying for deliverance, I failed to make use of the God given talent, God will not forgive me and I shall be judged unworthy of the great gift.

The Quit India Speech by Mahatma Gandhi

gandhi quit india speech pdf

They say we are erring, the move is inopportune. For the last twenty-two years, I have controlled my speech and pen and have stored up my energy. May be that the reins will be placed in the hands of the Parsis, for instance-as I would love to see happen-or they may be handed to some others whose names are not heard in the Congress today. In India too I continued my efforts and left no stone unturned to achieve that unity. Failing in this, Gandhi decided to undertake a fast as 'an appeal to the Highest Tribunal' against the unjust charges.

1942 Quit India Movement

gandhi quit india speech pdf

This can only be done through a definite realization, more real than the five senses can ever produce. While India was not ready to join its colonial ruler in the World War, it also did not support the fascism of Germany and was hence not very keen to join the War. There are people who ask me whether I am the same man that I was in 1920, or whether there has been any change in me. But he had not had much success. I have faith, therefore, that if, in spite of our shortcomings, the big thing does happen, it will be because God wanted to help us by crowning with success our silent, unremitting Sadhana for the last twenty-two years.

We, therefore, shall belong to the people from today onwards. I know the British Government will not be able to withhold freedom from us, when we have made enough self-sacrifice. I want to live my full span of life. Once you realize this you will forget the differences between the Hindus and Muslims, and think of yourselves as Indians only, engaged in the common struggle for independence. Through them I wish to say to the world that the United Powers who somehow or other say that they have need for India, have the opportunity now to declare India free and prove their bona fides.

Essay on Quit India Movement (1942)

These friends ought to have pondered over the appeal made to them by the Maulana to withdraw their amendments; they should have carefully followed the explanations given by Jawaharlal. Assaults have been made on my life in the past, but God has spared me till now, and the assailants have repented for their action. I attach the same importance to non-violence that I did then. It will not be for you then to object saying, 'This community is microscopic. I had great regard for British diplomacy which has enabled them to hold the Empire so long. How can I remain silent at this supreme hour and hide my light under the bushel? If Muslim Raj is invetable, then let it be; but how can we give it the stamp of our assent? The Congress does not belong to any one class or community; it belongs to the whole nation.

It has been repeated from thousands of platforms. I have faith, therefore, that if, in spite of our shortcomings, the big thing does happen, it will be because God wanted to help us by crowning with success our silent, unremitting Sadhana for the last twenty-two years. Our quarrel is not with the British people, we fight their imperialism. I have yet to say a few words in English also. I have kept a place for the Princes and the Zamindars1 in India that I envisage. Speaking for myself, I can say that I have never felt any hatred. It is a friendship which has outgrown official relationship.

Essay on Quit India Movement (1942)

gandhi quit india speech pdf

But God has now inspired me with an urge for freedom and I am to day a free man, and will no longer depend on you. There are people who ask me whether I am the same man that I was in 1920, or whether there has been any change in me. I and my Ahimsa are on our trail today. The Congress is unconcerned as to who will rule, when freedom is attained. I had among my friends and co-workers Muslims as well as Parsis. If in the present crisis, when the earth is being scorched by the flames of Himsa and crying for deliverance, I failed to make use of the God given talent, God will not forgive me and I shall be judged unworthy of the great gift. There is no inconsistency in our position today.

If that change does not come about, his conversion goes in vain and our non-co-operation with him will have to continue. Even if my eyes close before there is freedom, non-violence will not end. If, therefore, there is any among you who have lost faith in Ahimsa or is wearied of it, let him not vote for this resolution. May be that the reins will be placed in the hands of the Parsis, for instance-as I would love to see happen-or they may be handed to some others whose names are not heard in the Congress today. From 29 April to 1 May 1942, the All India Congress Committee assembled in Allahabad to discuss the resolution of the Working Committee. You are right in asking that question. Mutual trust is essential for success in the final nation-wide struggle that is to come.
