I wanted to add some Gandhi quotes but it turns out that Gandhi's most famous quotes aren't really his.

Got all, as I should, being an Indian. Could you accept 'Harijans' for Dalits, because that's what Gandhiji called them. Also, it would be more accurate to say that he opposed the creation of Pakistan, as opposed to independence. He was against the partition of India.

Yes. It would be wrong to say that he opposed the independence of Pakistan. You could rather say : "By opposing the partition of India, he opposed the creation of this country"

Got everything except for the political party but I assumed it was some generic nationalist name like that and came very close to guessing it.

You should watch the Ben Kingsley movie and brush up. Along with Daniel Day-Lewis as Lincoln, it's maybe the greatest biographical casting ever. By the way, a very young Daniel Day-Lewis briefly accosts Gandhi in South Africa.

You should add Harijan to the untouchables for the caste. Harijan is one of the Indian words for it.
