Real Ahimsa should be alround and not restricted merely to food. A non vegetarin may be quite non violent and a vegetrain may be quite inhuman. The jaws have made travesty of fasts.

Question of the office aceeptance will be decided by the next meeting of the cwc, looking to the improved tone of the Vice roy. The colonists were armed and knew the use of arms. The Indians , though in a majority, are unarmed and do not know the use of arms. Gandhiji had pinned his faith on constitutional means and hence he has accepted non-violence. Gandhiji wants Lord Lothian to go to Indian in the antumn and leave no stone unturmed in finding a solution to the problem.
