Gandhi is only revered because of his satyagraha (non-violence). The fact that he was lionized is no accident.

It's how the establishment keeps down the oppressed. You are a good protestor only if you are non-violent. You deserve to be heard only if you are non-violent, even though it will likely amount to nothing.

Gandhi was fucked up for a number of reasons, most importantly his thoughts and actions with respect to caste, race, and sex. It's definitely infuriating when white people exalt him (plus they never spell his name correctly), more so when Indians do it.
