Should we have a "criticism" section in this article? -- Pankaj Jain Capankajsmilyo (talk · contribs · count) 20:22, 9 November 2016 (UTC)

Generally criticism is best worked into the relevant sections. See WP:CRITICISM. I don't think criticism sections are good because the reader is immediately drawn to them, regardless of how important/notable they are. Absolutelypuremilk (talk) 20:32, 9 November 2016 (UTC)
The decision as to whether a criticism section is warranted is one that must be based on the evaluation and relative weight of reliable sources, not made editorially or stylistically. TimothyJosephWood 20:41, 9 November 2016 (UTC)

Under Early life and background, Para 10 says

Please change/rephrase this line 'Karamchand died, on a night when Mohandas had just left his father to sleep with his wife'

to 'Karamchand died on a night when Mohandas had just left his father and his pregnant wife (talk) 16:58, 18 November 2016 (UTC)

X mark.svg Not done This change seems directly contradicted by the immediately following quote, indicating he left to be with his wife, rather than leaving both his wife and father. TimothyJosephWood 17:06, 18 November 2016 (UTC)

Gandhi and interests in cleanliness and sanitation[edit]

I come from the sanitation side, and Gandhi is often quoted with this statement: "Cleanliness Is Next to Godliness". He's a huge inspiration to Indians working on sanitation, also the current prime minister Modi is quoting him on that, see the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan campaign (the Wikipedia article on that topic is not that great yet). It would be great if someone who has done work on the Gandhi article before could insert somewhere a statement about his interested in sanitation. You find lots on Google, e.g. could use this link as a starting point: Thanks. EvMsmile (talk) 22:09, 21 November 2016 (UTC)
