Gandhi:"You promised us independence last time."
An American cartoonist shows a uniformed representative of the British Empire urging Gandhi to support the war effort while Gandhi reminds him of the unfulfilled promise made in the First World War. In an interview with the American journalist Louis Fischer in June 1942, Gandhi explained that he did not wish the Axis powers to win the war but, he added, "I am certain that Britain cannot win unless the Indian people become free. Britain is weaker and Britain is morally indefensible while she rules India."
