100th Anniversary of Indira Gandhi’s Birth (* 19. November 1917)

While some view her as the “mother of India,” others consider her an ice-cold power politician and dictator: Indira Gandhi, who governed the world’s largest democracy for a total of 16 years. As the daughter of Jawaharlal Nehru, who served as independent India’s first Prime Minister, she learns about the concerns of her country at an early age.

At first, Indira Gandhi (she got her surname from her husband and is not related to Mahatma Gandhi) supports and consults her father. In 1964, not long after his death she is appointed as Minister of Information and Broadcasting. Two years later she becomes Prime Minister. She continues Nehru’s political course in the country that is frequently plagued by massive economic, political and religious problems. She supports the non-alignment movement in terms of foreign politics and state-socialism when it comes to domestic politics. India’s poor loves her for her policies against food shortages, social injustice and inequality.

In 1971 she goes to war against Pakistan and defeats the Muslim archenemy. The eastern part of the Islamic republic becomes independent under India’s protection and forms the state of Bangladesh. The two-front war with its neighbor that had threatened India for decades comes to an end—and Indira Gandhi reaches the zenith of her reputation. However, in the ensuing years the Prime Minister faces attacks by the opposition, as well as protests and strikes, to which she reacts by declaring a state of emergency. She manages to regain public order, but only by considerably curbing fundamental rights and arresting countless political opponents. Critique against her authoritarian leadership style grows and leads to a strong electoral defeat in 1977. Only three years later she makes a terrific comeback. During her new administration Gandhi is confronted with the ever-increasing secession movements of the subcontinent. In 1984, after unsuccessful talks with a group of radical separatist Sikhs, she orders the military to clear the Golden Temple of Amritsar, in order to set an example. The Sikhs had occupied the temple, which was highest sanctuary of this religious group.  Hundreds of non-involved civilians are killed. Three months later two of Indira Gandhi’s Sikh-body guards kill her in revenge.
