Thank you for correcting me. I had in mind a statement of Gandhi,
which I cannot trace, to one of his close associates during
Partition in which he acknowledged that something had gone wrong.
His message of secularism, on the other hand, may be directly
responsible for the strength of post-independence India, a message
that the BJP and RSS tried very hard to deny and suppress.
