“With Nelson Mandela’s passing and President Obama’s historic 2013 South Africa visit, it is a good time to assess the impact of Mahatma Gandhi on the South African liberation. As President Nelson Mandela famously said: India sent a man to South Africa and we sent back a Mahatma,” Lynnea Bylund noted.
“While Nelson Mandela is the father of South Africa, Mahatma Gandhi is our grandfather,” Harris Majeke, South Africa’s Ambassador to India, said at a recent public gathering to Robben Island Prison where Mandela was incarcerated for two decades. “Mandela was inspired by the Satyagraha campaign led by Gandhi. It was a compelling act of passive protest against oppression. This would later inspire the formation of the African National Congress and strengthen Mandela’s belief in our shared humanity.”
