Gandhi’s Involvement in the ‘Khalifat’ Movement

For nearly a century Mohandas Gandhi has been revered as a man who dedicated his life to peace and justice. It seems Saint Gandhi, the so-called apostle of non-violence, was concerned in getting justice only for fellow Indians and not for other people. In the early ‘20s he helped fan the fanatical Muslim ‘Khalifat’ movement in India which campaigned for the defeated Ottoman Turkey, and opposed the claims of the Armenians re the Genocide and the depopulation of Western Armenia and Cilicia.  The Khalifat was taken very seriously in London, and Armenians soon found their requests for Western diplomatic support falling on deaf ears. Subsequently they were denied restitution for their incalculable losses. The 20th century Indian “saint” thereby helped bring about the denial of justice to a people who had been persecuted for centuries by Ottoman Turkey and were finally driven out of their homeland. Some St. Gandhi.
