原文标题：Bapu in China’s political movie
BEIJING: For the first time in all these years, Mahatma Gandhi has been discussed in a Chinese political movie that enjoys strong government backing. The film, “Back to 1942” also contains rare scenes showing Chiang Kai-shek , the main enemy of Mao Zedong, as a kind and caring leader.
The Mahatma’s name comes up on two occasions in the film amid scenes of war, cruelty, and famine that left three million dead in the Henan province in 1942.
Chiang is shown saying he wants to meet Gandhi in his planned tour of India after military officials report about the success of his hunger strike. Officials also report that Hindus and Muslims have stopped fighting among themselves owing to the Mahatma’s intervention.
The film contains strong political messages from Chinese leaders seeking the country’s merger with Taiwan , which was led for decades by Chiang and his son. Chiang fled to Taiwan after he was thrown out by Mao’s Communist forces. Another message involves Christianity , which has been a major political controversy in view of the differences between China’s atheist government and the Pope. Faith in Christ has been shown in several scenes.
As with most Chinese movies dealing with modern war, the Japanese troops who caused the massacre of Nanjing , are the main villains. This time though it is different. The film shows faminehit people being robbed by Chinese forces and corrupt officials. There is also a scene in which a preacher questions the existence of God in a situation where millions are starving to death.
why not rahul gandhi and sonia gandhi. gandhi is not here, so he can not act in movies. sonia and rahul are good actors.

Poor Gandhi Jee, You fought British but Survived. Jinna did not listen to you & India was divided ( Debate for good or bad). Congress used your “Bakri, Dhoti & Lakri. Aab They Want Your Chamri. Jai Ho.

It is also a political move. ‘Pour water over the head and cut the neck”, is a very old cliche. I remember this phrase being used by British politicians when Japan was trying to normalise ties with Britain and the US in the 50’s Apparently no one trusted the Japs after Pearl Harbour nor should India after Chou-en-Lai.
