The views of Nelson Mandela and Gandhi were very similar. Their ways were similar because like M.L.K., Nelson Mandela was influenced in his ways by Gandhi. In his life Mandela lead a 20 year peaceful, and nonviolent campaign against the racist government he was living under. Like Gandhi who spent nearly 40 years trying to free India of the British command with peaceful, nonviolent protests. They both committed crimes of civil disobedience in protest against the unjustness of the world they were living in.
Martin Luther King Jr. was one of the most famous nonviolent protest leaders who was gravely influenced by Gandhi. You can see that many views of Gandhi and MLK are very similar. They both believed that being peaceful was they way to enter protest, MLK even believed that if his followers were peaceful the police would have no idea how to handle them. This would then cause the unjustness against MLK's followers to be on display. Gandhi and MLK's thoughts of prison were also close, MLK though prison was a place to start the change and that it was necessary, he also told his followers to never fear going to jail. Gandhi was the same way in not fearing jail he even said that he would go to prison with no hesitation. The last thing that both men shared in common to the people around them was to keep their morals while fighting the unjust.
Gandhi was a leader and liberator of India from British rule. He spent his life leading peaceful protests and breaking the unjust laws set on Indians by the British. One of the most influential protests lead by Gandhi was the salt march, fighting against the law that the people of India could only buy British salt. By seeing the ways of Gandhi many leaders to come for example, Martin Luther King Jr. were influenced by his ways of peaceful protest.
