Did they really say that?

There are times when we get it wrong. This applies to everyone, and with respect to everyone. Although sometimes, we mean it. I'm sure Churchill did. Here's some examples.

"It is alarming and also nauseating to see Mr. Gandhi, a seditious middle temple lawyer, now posing as a fakir of a type well known in the east, striding half-naked up the steps of the viceregal palace, while he is still organizing and conducting a defiant campaign of civil disobedience, to parley on equal terms with the representative of the king-emperor."

- Winston Churchill, 1930


"I do not consider Hitler to be as bad as he is depicted. He is showing an ability that is amazing and seems to be gaining his victories without much bloodshed."

- Mohandas Gandhi in May 1940,


“Brahmins who mouth and patter principles of Western Liberalism."

- Churchill on Indian Congress leaders


"God forbid that India should ever take to industrialism after the manner of the west... keeping the world in chains. If our nation took to similar economic exploitation, it would strip the world bare like locusts."

- Gandhi on Economy


"If we had the atom bomb, we would have used it against the British."

- Speech (16 June 1947) as the official date for Indian independence approached (15 August 1947) , as quoted in Mahatma Gandhi : The Last Phase (1958) by Pyarelal, p. 326


"India
is a geographical term. It is no more a united nation than the equator."

- Churchill, Speech at Royal Albert Hall, London (18 March 1931)


"Power will go to the hands of rascals, rogues and freebooters. All Indian leaders will be of low calibre and men of straw."

- Churchill, on the eve of Indian Independence in 1947
