"I knew that the oppressor must be liberated just as surely as the oppressed."-Nelson Mandela

Why did he say so?

Dear Student.

A​​​​ccording to him an oppressor is a prisoner of hatred, who is locked behind the bars of prejudice and narrow-mindedness. And an oppressed is robbed of humanity by putting him in prison and ill-treating him. Mandela realized in his youth that it was not just his freedom that was being curtailed, but the freedom of all blacks. The hunger for his own freedom became the hunger for the freedom of his people. This desire of a non-racial society transformed him into a virtuous and self-sacrificing man

We hope that this answer solves your query.
Regards.
