#FACTCHECK-CLIAM”A most rare picture of Mahatma Gandhi from the days when he used to be a Sergeant Major”

ANALYSIS: Misleading

FACT: British Army was fighting the second Boer war (1899–1902) and 1906 when British were fighting “Zulu War”, and here Gandhi raised Indian ambulance corps to aid the British army serving as the “Sergeant Major” of the British army.This picture was taken in Africa on 1910, Gandhi was not “Sergeant Major” by then. Intent: Social media user sharing wrong image without proper historical information.
