Dear Editor,

April 4, marks the death anniversary of a well-known American Civil Rights leader, Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. It is widely believed that he was tremendously influenced by the nonviolence doctrine of Indian Hindu leader, Mr. Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, also known as Mahatma Gandhi.

We wonder how both these leaders would have felt if they had witnessed with their own eyes what the Hindu adherents of Mr. M. K. Gandhi’s nonviolence did to the thousands of innocent Sikh men, women and children in India following Mrs. Indira Gandhi’s alleged assassination by her two bodyguards.
