Mahatma Gandhi Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi (pronounced [ˈmoːɦənd̪aːs ˈkərəmtʃənd̪ ˈɡaːnd̪ʱi] ( ); 2 October 1869 – 30 January 1948) was the preeminent leader of Indian nationalism in British-ruled India. Employing nonviolent civil disobedience, Gandhi led India to independence and inspired movements for civil rights and freedom across the world. The honorific Mahatma (Sanskrit: "high-souled", "venerable"[2])—applied to him first in 1914 in South Africa,[3]—is now used worldwide. He is also called Bapu (Gujarati: endearment for "father",[4] "papa"[4][5]) in India.

Scrapping the 1998 Human Rights Act introduced by Labour does not mean that British courts would no longer have to apply the European convention on human rights. British citizens would still be able to take cases to the European court of human rights, and its case law and the principles of the convention would still be in force in UK courts. Britons who want to bring cases would, however, no longer be able to have them heard by a high court first. Instead, they would face delays and extra costs in taking cases directly to Strasbourg.
