Mahatma Gandhi Quote
Among the many misdeeds of the British rule in India, history will look upon the Act depriving a whole nation of arms as the blackest. If we want the Arms Act to be repealed, if we want to learn the use of arms, here is a golden opportunity. If the middle classes render voluntary help to Government in the hour of its trial, distrust will disappear, and the ban on possessing arms will be withdrawn.
From a leaflet urging Indians to serve with the British Army in World War I, Part V, Chapter 27, Recruiting Campaign - An Autobiography (1927)
