TODAY THAT DAY : 08 FEBRUARY 1948


GANDHI FATALISTIC


Gandhi believed his life was in God's hands and that, if he had to die, no precautions would save him, the Times Delhi correspondent reports, quoting the Indian Home Minister (Sardar Patel)


Mr. Patel said on Friday that Gandhi had refused to allow searches to be made of persons visiting prayer meetings.

A purge of the whole party to "set its house orders" has been demanded in a New Delhi Congress Party working committee resolution.

The committee urges that a supreme effort to establish communal harmony should be made as a result of Gandhi's death, and that every individual in India should contribute 10 days income to establish a Gandhi National Memorial Fund.
