Read this adapted excerpt from Mohandas Gandhi's speech “Quit India.” What is the purpose of this speech? Then, there is the question of your attitude towards the British. I have noticed that there is hatred towards the British among the people. The people say they are disgusted with their behavior. The people make no distinction between British imperialism and the British people. To them, the two are one. . . . We must get rid of this feeling. Our quarrel is not with the British people, we fight their imperialism. The proposal for the withdrawal of British power did not come out of anger. It came to enable India to play its due part at the present critical juncture It is not a happy position for a big country like India to be merely helping with money and material obtained willy-nilly from her while the United Nations are conducting the war. We cannot evoke the true spirit of sacrifice and valour, so long as we are not free. I know the British Government will not be able to withhold freedom from us, when we have made enough self-sacrifice. We must, therefore, purge ourselves of hatred. Speaking for myself, I can say that I have never felt any hatred. As a matter of fact, I feel myself to be a greater friend of the British now than ever before. One reason is that they are today in distress. A. to inform his countrymen of the impending struggle for freedom B. to urge his countrymen to not ally themselves with the Japanese forces C. to persuade his countrymen to not feel hatred toward the British D. to inform his countrymen about the British attitude toward war

You should note that this is about Gandhi, he wanted to create peace between his country and the British rule He didn't want to war with them and he didn't believe that it was the best way to deal with an argument
