Ghandi's early writings are interesting and worth looking into as well. For one thing he complained about British policy equating his Brahman caste with common "kaffirs". It's good that more people be made aware of these, if for no other reason than to show them the difference between the official image and reality.
If Geoff had read from some of those, I don't think many would mistake it for promotion of Ghandi, Hinduism, etc.
I just listened to the latest TTIND can't understand what could be so upsetting about it to a WN, even if Churchill was a favorite pet peeve.
