Gandhi Was a Racist Who Forced Young Girls to Sleep in Bed with Him

By Mayukh Sen. Broadly.

In August 2012, just before India’s 65th Independence Day, Outlook India, one of the country’s most widely circulated print magazines, published the results of a blockbuster poll it had conducted with its readership. Who, after “the Mahatma,” was the greatest Indian to have walked the country’s soil? The Mahatma at the center of this smarmy question was, of course, Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi.

There’s nothing surprising about the fact that Outlook passed this assumption off as truth. Gandhi has become the obvious, no-duh barometer for Indian greatness, if not greatness in general. After all, who doesn’t like Gandhi? We’ve come to know him as this frail, nobly malnourished old man with a purely moral, pious soul. He’s a guy who ushered in a new grammar of nonviolent resistance to India, a country he helped escape the constraints of British imperial rule. He soldiered through some valiant hunger strikes until a Hindu nationalist shot, killed, and effectively martyred him.

My maternal grandfather went to jail with Gandhi in 1933, so I grew up knowing this myth was cobbled together from half-truths. My grandfather took the lessons he’d learned in jail to begin an ashram in the bowels of West Bengal. As a consequence, my parents raised me with an intimate understanding of Gandhi that teetered between laudatory and critical. My family adored him, though we never really bought into the idea that he single-handedly orchestrated India’s independence movement. This is to say nothing of Gandhi’s bigotry, which we didn’t touch in our household. In the decades since his assassination in 1948, the image of Gandhi has been constructed so carefully, scrubbed clean of its grimy details, that it’s easy to forget that he predicated his rhetoric on anti-blackness, a vehement allergy to female sexuality, and a general unwillingness to help liberate the Dalit, or “untouchable,” caste.

Gandhi lived in South Africa for over two decades, from 1893 to 1914, working as a lawyer and fighting for the rights of Indians—and only Indians. To him, as he expressed quite plainly, black South Africans were barely human. He referred to them using the derogatory South African slur kaffir. He lamented that Indians were considered “little better, if at all, than savages or the Natives of Africa.” In 1903, he declared that the “white race in South Africa should be the predominating race.” After getting thrown in jail in 1908, he scoffed at the fact that Indians were classed with black, not white, prisoners. Some South African activists have thrust these parts of Gandhi’s thinking back into the spotlight, as did a book published this past September by two South African academics, but they’ve barely made a dent on the American cultural consciousness beyond the concentric circles of Tumblr.

Around this same time, Gandhi began cultivating the misogyny he’d carry with him for the rest of his life. During his years in South Africa, he once responded to a young man’s sexual harassment of two of Gandhi’s female followers by forcibly cutting the girls’ hair short to make sure they didn’t invite any sexual attention. (Michael Connellan, writing in the Guardiancarefully explained that Gandhi felt women surrendered their humanity the minute men raped them.) He operated under the assumption that men couldn’t control their basic predatory impulses while simultaneously asserting that women were responsible for—and completely at the mercy of—these impulses. His views on female sexuality were similarly deplorable; according to Rita Banerji, writing in Sex and Power, Gandhi viewed menstruation as the “manifestation of the distortion of a woman’s soul by her sexuality.” He also believed the use of contraceptives was the sign of whoredom.

He’d sleep naked next to them in bed without touching them, making sure he didn’t get aroused; these women were props to coax him into celibacy.

He’d sleep naked next to them in bed without touching them, making sure he didn’t get aroused; these women were props to coax him into celibacy.

It’s easy to forget Gandhi predicated his rhetoric on anti-blackness, a vehement allergy to female sexuality, and a general unwillingness to help liberate the “untouchable” caste.

Kasturba, Gandhi’s wife, was perhaps his most frequent punching bag. “I simply cannot bear to look at Ba’s face,” he once gushed about her, because she was caring for him while he was sick. “The expression is often like that on the face of a meek cow and gives one the feeling as a cow occasionally does, that in her own dumb manner she is saying something.” An apologist’s response to this, of course, would claim that cows are sacred beings in Hinduism—and so Gandhi’s likening of his wife to a cow was really a veiled compliment. Or, perhaps, we could chalk it up to mere marital annoyance. When Kasturba came down with pneumonia, Gandhi denied her penicillin, even though doctors said it would cure her; he insisted the new medicine was an alien substance her body should not take in. She succumbed to the sickness and died in 1944. Just years later, perhaps realizing the grave mistake he’d made, he willfully took quinine to treat his own malaria. He survived.

There’s a Western impulse to view Gandhi as the quiet annihilator of caste, a characterization that’s categorically false. He viewed the emancipation of Dalits as an untenable goal, and felt that they weren’t worth a separate electorate. He insisted, instead, that Dalits remain complacent, waiting for a turn that history never gave them. Dalits continue to suffer from the direct results of prejudices sewn into the cultural fabric of India.

History, as Arundhati Roy wrote in last year’s seminal essay “The Doctor and the Saint,” has been unbelievably kind to Gandhi. This has given us the latitude to brush off his prejudices as mere imperfections, small marks on clean hands. Apologists will insist that Gandhi was flawed and human. Perhaps they’ll morph his prejudices into something positive, proof that he was just like us! Or another type of rhetorical defection: the argument that illuminating Gandhi’s prejudices demonstrates how Americans harbor a sick fascination with India’s problems, as if Western writers are obsessed with concocting social ills for the subcontinent out of thin air.

These are the mental gymnastics we engage in when we’re eager to mythologize. The vile traits Gandhi exhibited persist in Indian society at large today—virulent anti-blackness, a blasé disregard for women’s bodies, careful myopia around the piss-poor treatment of Dalits. It’s not a coincidence that these very strains of Gandhi’s rhetoric have been stamped out of his legacy.

But how do you live up to a ridiculous sobriquet like “the greatest Indian”? This is a colossal burden to place upon anyone—to dub him the greatest person to hail from a country that’s home to billions of people. Creating a false idol involves a great deal of forgetting. It’s easy to slobber over a man who didn’t really exist.

51 Historical Facts That Sound Like Huge Lies But Are Actually True.

By Buzzfeed.

1. The Ottoman Empire’s Sultan Ibrahim I had 280 of his concubines drowned in the ocean after one of them slept with another man.

2. In medieval times people were put to death for being witches. One anthropologist conjectures as many as 600,000 “witches” lost their lives.

7. Ice age Britons used skulls of the dead as cups.

8. After Pope Gregory IX associated cats with devil worship, cats throughout Europe were exterminated in droves.

9. This sudden lack of cats led to the spread of disease because infected rats ran free. The most devastating of these diseases, the Bubonic Plague, killed 100 million people.

10. The Aztecs made human sacrifices to the gods. In 1487, at the dedication of the temple in Tenochtitlan, 20,000 people were put to death.

17. Before becoming pope, Pius II wrote a popular erotic bookThe Tale of Two Lovers.

19. Approximately 750,000 men died in the Civil War, which was more than 2.5% of America’s population at the time.

20. In Medieval times the accused often faced a “trial by ordeal,” where they were forced to stick their arm into a vat of boiling water. If their arm emerged unscathed, it was believed God protected them, thus proving their innocence.

21. Animals were put on trial in medieval times and routinely sentenced to death.

22. Beginning in 1909 (and continuing into the 1970s), the Australian government instituted a policy of removing Aboriginal children from their parents and teaching them to reject their Aboriginality.

23. In the 1970s Pol Pot’s communist regime brainwashed thousands of Cambodian children into becoming soldiers who committed mass murders and other atrocities.

24. Japanese samurais disemboweled themselves with their sword (an act known as seppuko) when in danger of being captured.

32. Chairman Mao Zedong killed 45 million people during China’s “Great Leap Forward” from 1958–1962.

33. Peter the Great executed his wife’s lover, then forced her to keep her lover’s head in a jar of alcohol in her bedroom.

34. In 16th-century Canada, women drank a potion with beaver testicles ground into it as a form of contraception.

35. Genghis Khan killed 40 million people across Asia and Europe.

36. In the 16th and 17th century wealthy Europeans ate corpses thinking they’d cure them of ailments.

44. Child killer and rapist Pedro Lopez, known as “The Monster of the Andes,” was convicted in 1983 of killing 110 young girls (though he confessed to killing 300).

45. Lopez was released in 1998 after serving Ecuador’s maximum sentence of 20 years. His whereabouts are presently unknown.

49. In 755 A.D. the An Lushan rebellion against the Chinese Tang Dynasty resulted in 36 million deaths, or one-sixth of the entire world population.

50. In colonial America pregnant women didn’t receive painkillers during delivery because pain was considered God’s punishment for Eve’s eating the forbidden fruit.

51. Saddam Hussein was given the key to the city of Detroit.

Does the idea of car twerkers have you shaking in your boots?

While the Northeast deals with a huge snowstorm, Miami, Florida, is dealing with a rash of … car twerking?

In the past few days, women have been filmed shaking their heineys on top of cars in the Magic City.

One woman was caught twerking on top of a car driving westbound on the MacArthur Causeway early Monday evening. The savvy filmmaker recorded her posterior for posterity, and shared it with friends, one of whom was documentary filmmaker Billy Corben, who posted it on Twitter.

“For anyone who thought that twerking had its moment and now it’s gone, that is clearly not the case,” Corben told Miami New Times. “As social media has taught us, twerking is forever; it is a timeless tradition.”

The paper reached out to local police to see if the woman was arrested or at least stopped by police. However, there were no car twerkers reported from the MacArthur Causeway, possibly because the first rule about car twerking is that you don’t tell people about car twerking.

A different woman was filmed on Sunday twerking on top of a police ATV at South Beach.

The video below shows the unidentifed twerker mounting the front of the AVT to shake her rear end. It doesn’t last long. The officer pushes her off his vehicle. 

The woman was not arrested, and the situation remained peaceful, according to Miami Beach Police Ernesto Rodriguez.

“The beachgoer made a poor choice when she mounted one of our vehicles as the officer was retreating from a large crowd,” he told Local10.com. “We strongly urge people visiting our beaches to have a good time not only safely but also responsibly.”

In addition, another woman was also filmed car twerking in Miami Monday afternoon. In the interest of thoroughness, it appears below.

Celine Dion gives advice to Beyonce about having twins: ‘It’s going to be hectic!”

Celine Dion has shared some advice with Beyonce on becoming a mother to twins – telling her “it’s going to be hectic”.

Beyonce announced she was pregnant with twins earlier this month by posting an elaborate photo shoot showing off her bump, and Celine – a mother of twins herself, Nelson and Eddy, six – thinks the singer ‘knows what she’s doing’ when it comes to the new arrivals.

“I think it’s a double blessing,” the legendary Celine told E! News . “I have twins. I think she’s covered. She’s been in the business for so long, she’s got her own people. When she does something, she knows what she’s doing.

“It’s going to be hectic in the house!”

Even so, Celine’s confident Beyonce will cope – and points out that the singer has good people around her and is already a great mum to Blue Ivy, five.

“She’s fortunate enough that she can have all the people that she wants to help her, but no one will ever replace a mom and she’s a great mom. I’m pretty sure of that.”

Celine – who’s also mum to 16 year old Rene-Charles Angelil – had some other kind words for Beyonce, and praised her greatness: “She looks amazing, she makes women dream. She’s so beautiful, she’s on top of things.”

Legendary singer Celine is coming to the UK this summer as part of her wider European tour.

It’s been nine years since UK fans of the ‘My Heart Will Go On’ singer have been able to see her perform live on home soil.

The European tour kicks off in Copenhagen in June, followed by stops in Sweden, England, the Netherlands, France, Switzerland and Germany.

After the tour, Céline will return to Las Vegas for another series of performances as part of her residency at The Colosseum in Caesars Palace, and release two new albums, in French and English, during the autumn.
