The Three Monkeys - Daily Express, London, England, 1930.
The Daily Express accused Gandhi of failing to recognize that the civil disobedience movement launched in 1930 had led to mass violence in various parts of the country. it was in the forefront of the demand that the severest measures possible be taken to crush the movement. Irwin rejected this demand, saying: "However emphatically we may condemn the civil disobedience movement, we should, I am satisfied, make a profound mistake if we underestimate the genuine and powerful meaning of nationalism that is today animating much of Indian thought and for this no complete or permanent cure has ever been or ever will be found in strong action by the Government."
