Gandhi Assassinated

While walking to evening prayer in New Dehli, India, Mohandas Gandhi was shot five times at point blank range and died almost immediately. Gandhi was the primary political and spiritual leader of India during his country’s independence movement. He was one of the first in India to practice mass civil disobedience and nonviolence against the tyranny in his country, inspiring a host of 20th century activists. - From Common Prayer: A Liturgy for Ordinary Radicals
