Mahathma Gandhi challenged the largest empire through Sathyagraha: PM in the House

Mahathma Gandhi challenged the largest empire through Sathyagraha 700 01
Prime Minister Wickremesinghe has hailed Mahathma Gandhi as “an extra-ordinary political strategist who challenged the largest empire of the world through Satyagraha.

He made this observation moving an Adjournment Motion in Parliament on Friday to commemorate the 150th Birth Anniversary of the late Mahatma Gandhi. Indian High Commissioner to Sri Lanka Taranjit Singh was present at the VIP gallery along with his diplomatic officers to listen to the debate.

During his address, Premier Wickremasinghe said: “Gandhi realized that you have to mobilize the masses to free India and that you have to use legal framework as the tool. Ghanthy exclaimed to the people in the following words-‘I can see that in the midst of death life persists, in the midst of untruth truth persists, in the midst of darkness light persists,’. This was the confidence he gave the people of India, a confidence which others copied from the people of India as they struggled to win their freedom.

Gandhi is shared by all of us. Though he is known for leading the freedom struggle in India, his influence was such, that it immediately influenced the countries around India. Swaraj meant not merely political independence, but self-sufficiency.”
