Use ofviolence does not achieve just ends in the long run. What doyou think about this statement?

  • Use of violence does not achieve just ends in the long run as violence tends to become out of control and causes a trail of death and destruction.

  • Violence involved in forcefully removing oppressors, liberation struggle and self-defence is often justified.

  • However, the removal of oppressors by the oppressed class through violent struggle leads to another cycle of violence fuelled by a feeling for revenge.

  • According to Mahatma Gandhi when violence is done for good, the good is temporary and the evil it does is permanent as violence breeds hatred and resentment and divides people instead of uniting them.
