Is Kashmir a Hindu state because the Hindu Prince happens to rule a territory which has an overwhelming majority of Muslims as it’s inhabitants? Or is Hyderabad with its overwhelming Hindu population a Muslim state because of Muslim Prince rules its destiny?￼
Mahatma Gandhi, Harijan, February 18, 1939
It is the Khadi spirit which has enabled Kashmir woollens and Bengal-Assam silks to hold their own.
-Mahatma Gandhi, Harijan, November 7, 1936
Mistakes were made on both sides. Of this I have no doubt. But this does not mean that we should persist in those mistakes, for then in the end, we shall only destroy ourselves in a war and the whole of the subcontinent shall pass into the hands of some third power. That will be the worst imaginable fate for us. I shudder to think of it.￼
–Mahatma Gandhi, January 4, 1948
