When Ahimsa failed

Said Gandhiji, "Sir, you should try
Ahimsa. If they gouge out your eye
Or tear off your arm,
Please do them no harm --
Make passive resistance your reply."

Said the great Dalai Lama, "Your views
I'm sorry to say are obtuse.
In the fight against terror,
Satyagraha would be error,
For these are 'closed minds' on the loose!"

MSN News 17/01/09: New Delhi: The Dalai Lama, a lifelong champion of non-violence today candidly stated that terrorism cannot be tackled by applying the principle of ahimsa as the minds of terrorists are closed. Get the story here
