Gandhi; Great Spiritual Leader or Hack?

I wouldn't say he's the jesus of India. Stupid tag. Insulting tbh.

Gandhi was definately a great spiritual leader, there's no doubt about it.

The thing people tend to question however is whether or not he was a great national leader. There were many negatives or disputes over the actions he took and the resulting consequences.

But when it comes to spirituality he is indeed unquestionable.

Where are you getting your facts? I suspect that you are some little mormon wannabe emo d bag, that thinks he's good at debating, but all your argumentas are irrational and pointless.

See normally when people chat shit they site some sort of reference or atleast back it up with some detail.

You aren't even able to do that? I don't know if that's more or less pathetic...

Alright, so maybe he might have been a douchebag in his spare time, but honestly, he's a large part of the reason Indians have the freedoms they do today. I mean, back then it was a tumultuous time and there was your standard racism and bigotry. At least someone decided to stop it.

So that automatically nullifies everything he's ever done? Cute.

End of the day... what harm was caused?

Not to say I agree or disagree with him... but did he ever actually do anything racist? or incite racial hatred?

i do not believe he is the "jesus of india" but he did lead a whole country to independance i mean when you really step back and think what India would be like if Gandhi had not led them to independance you will realize that despite doing some bad things he changed millions of lives for the better

Side: did more good than bad

If you bet on human nature everytime, you'll win... every time :)

The guy was basically useless and had a thing for young girls.

I used to like Gandhi just like everyone else, but once you do studying on his work and of what he's actually done... the man sucks.

Being racist and into young girls (every man on the planet who isn't gay is pretty much into young girls. Aren't you?) doesn't preclude him from being a great spiritual and national leader of India in the past century.

Lead people to not fight back for their country? That isn't much leading, that's just doing nothing and saying it's "spiritual".

He was an old racist/possible pedophile.

Agreed he was useless and I did like him and started studying him once I found out about little girls I said that's enough.

Abit of evidence, detail or expansion on your argument?

This thing he had for girls - I hope you know the full story rather than the typical twisted white washed version of it.

If he was so useless how comes so many people followed and looked up to him?

I could go and get a bunch of atheist sites to back me up, but I know how you'll just ignore them, claiming a bias.

So I will merely present you with the greatest show evar.

Gandhi Bullshit

I was asking the debate creator .

KINDA ,

I already know how what you would say .

Im glad that there is ex-gandhi -followers that are not so biasly blind with their actual experience with this Ghandi..

Maybe he is the Jesus of India ,in your eyes.

But did he walk across water.

Im not saying Jesus did , but people certainly dont claim Jesus to be the Ghandi of the world.

I dont know that Jesus would like being compared to such a biasly orientated leader as ghandi.

I am not saying Jesus wasnt biasly orientated in his cause.

Perhaps ghandi was the reincarnation , of Jesus?

Who knows ?

I dont know .

I dont see how he is some fantastic deitified being.

He was basically no different to hitler ,no different to jfk no different to Jesus, no different to most politicians or leaders. No different to you or I , he was just another human.
