Gan article included in collection of writings on Mahatma Gandhi

Oct 07, 2021

Dr. Barry L. Gan, professor emeritus of philosophy, recently published an article titled "Gandhi and the Jews" in a collection of writings on Gandhi.
The collection is titled "Reflections on Mahatma Gandhi" and was published in September by Rawat Publications in Jaipur, India. Editors are Terry Beitzel and Chandrakant Langare. 
The article explores why Gandhi opposed a Zionist state, and it draws parallels between Gandhi's position on that issue to his positions on the division of India into India and Pakistan and on his opposition for quotas in the Indian parliament for Dalits (untouchables).
