- "He almost beat them."
- ―Clay Kaczmarek, 2012.
In 1930, Gandhi led his followers on the Salt March, an act of nonviolent civil disobedience in colonial India. The protest attracted a large crowd, partially aided by an Apple of Eden that Gandhi had acquired.
When the secret to Gandhi's leadership was discovered to actually be an Apple of Eden, the Templars killed him in order to obtain it. On 30 January 1948, Mahatma Gandhi was assassinated, with the bullet hitting him directly in the chest. The Templars then took his Apple from his corpse which they left in the streets.
Gandhi's funeral procession took place the day of his death, with thousands of people showing up to mourn him.
Details of Gandhi's Apple and death were later collected by the Assassin Clay Kaczmarek in 2012, and hidden in the Animus for his successor, Desmond Miles to find. Which he did in September of that year. Hidden in the photograph of the Salt March was a Morse cipher which read "The bullet hit him in the chest."
Behind the scenes
In Sanskrit, the term "Mahatma" refers to a person that could be likened to a Christian saint, and translated to "Great Soul." Alongside Gandhi, figures such as Lalon Shah and Jyotirao Phule have been ordained with the title. Gandhi was often referred to as "Gandhiji" by his fellow Indians; the suffix -ji being a sign of respect or admiration, an honorific.
