Mohandas K. Gandhi (or Mahatma Gandhi) was a political activist and the international face of the struggle for Indian independence from the United Kingdom.


In April 1919, young Indiana Jones, who had followed Gandhi's fight for an independent India, met Gandhi in the city of Bombay.

Jones attended one of Gandhi's lectures with Marya Smirnova in Calcutta in 1930.[1]

Years later, on January 30, 1948, Gandhi was assasinated by a Hindu extremist.[2]

Behind the scenesEdit

Indiana Jones and Gandhi were to meet in The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles episode "Bombay, April 1919" but the series was cancelled before the story was produced.[3] An encounter between the two would later materialize in the French comic Indiana Jones et la Cité de la Foudre.[1]
