An advocate for peace

Mahatma Gandhi is most well known for leading the successful campaign for India’s independence, using nonviolent resistance which inspired human rights movements across the world.

He is recognised as an exceptional human being who has been a powerful advocate of peace and has inspired generations with his belief in truth and non-violence.

With strong ties to London after his attendance at University College of London law school in 1888, Gandhi’s visits to the UK continued for over 50 years. In his final visit to London in 1931, he stood as the sole representative of the Indian National Congress at the Second Round Table Conference on the Indian constitution.
