Why doesn't the article describe the relationship between Indira Gandhi and Mahatma Gandhi? There's a section from 5 years ago in this talk thread asking the same question. As an unfamiliar reader looking for basic information, this is a huge omission. Was there an edit war in the past over this? Surely the editors can hash out something here and add a sentence or two to the "Early life and career" section. If it's so controversial that this is difficult, that only makes it more important that something be added. Oconnor663 (talk) 00:24, 16 November 2013 (UTC)
The reference to the other Gandhi perpetuates the error that Indira was related to him. The caption to the photo "Gandhi fasting in 1924, with the young Indira" is particularly misleading. This article is about Indira Gandhi, not the mystic who happened to share the same surname.Royalcourtier (talk) 06:53, 22 June 2014 (UTC)
I've tweaked the wording. Please see what you think. --NeilNtalk to me 12:37, 22 June 2014 (UTC)
Just a note, the subject is addressed in Nehru–Gandhi family, perhaps regular editors might want to think of referencing it in here too. —SpacemanSpiff 16:19, 22 June 2014 (UTC)
I grabbed the bull by its horn, and added an explicit note clarifying the relationship in this edit. The current placement may not be ideal, since this "common mistake" is unlikely to be the first thing of note about Indira Gandhi, but couldn't think of a better one. Pinging @NeilN: any input? Feel free to tweak. Abecedare (talk) 17:27, 14 March 2015 (UTC)
@Abecedare: No issues here. Attentive readers will see there's no familial relationship from the article text but a note can't hurt. --NeilNtalk to me 17:15, 22 March 2015 (UTC)
Middle-East (bias) - Iran Not In the Middle-East
The section 'Middle East' contains whole lot of pure 'bias' towards Pakistan (that can be visibly noticed). The section does not provide 'balanced-outlook'; and tries to give everywhere a brief justification behind the Middle-Eastern support for Pakistan, as if trying to justify why India lacked the support (because of the US influence, but not due to Pakistan's cultural and religious fraternity with the Muslim-majority region). It does look the write-up is furnished to deflate Pakistan's support in the Middle East and prioritize India as an overall 'good-guy' (like, from the movie).
Also, the section includes 'Iran' to be part of the Middle-East. Iran has never been geographically and historically part of Middle-East (it rather belongs to the Central-Asia) - SarfarazLarkanian 02:07, 12 September 2015 (UTC)
