'Forget what you've heard about Gandhi and nonviolence in India. This is a nation of militias now'

"I'm in search of Gandhi in the land of Gandhi…. I've failed to find him."

The above quote comes from no one very intellectual. It was actually delivered by Yasin Malik, a separatist leader from J & K.

The quote found place in Anand Giridharadas' nicely written article “Want to be heard in India? You'd better form a militia” in International Herald Tribune.

Good that many have understood this. The bad part is, those who have understood what Giridharadas says are mostly politicos.
