Mahamana Madan Mohan Malaviya



Dr. Rajendra Prasad

President of India


Malaviyaji did not belong to one man and to one country. He was a man of universal fame. By his death a void has been created which would be difficult to fill. His noble example and works will be a sort of inspiration for generations to come.


Pandit Malaviya was a true servant of the country. His services were too many to be recounted in a few sentences. In spite of his differences Malaviyaji continued to help and guide the Congress at critical times. During the Congress movements of 1921, 30 and 42, when all other leaders of the Congress were arrested Malaviyaji guided the followers of the Congress.


Benares Hindu University is a living example of his services to education.  Although he was himself poor, he collected crores of rupees for the university.


As a religionist Pt. Malaviya did immense good to the country. He was very accommodating to men of other religions who went to see him.


In public work of any kind in India during the latter half of the 19th century and first half of the 20th century, it is impossible not to have known Pandit Madan Mohan Malaviya. The gamut of his activities was wide enough to include political, social, educational and religious activities and he has personality which enabled him to influence all these spheres with equal felicity.


He has left us a rich legacy of devoted service and sacrifice for the country in the many fields in which he undertook and accomplished great things.       


A great soul has left us. His name and work would inspire future generation and give the message that for a determined person nothing is impossible. His service to nation is beyond words. The vacuum created by his death can't be filled. He was a real patriot.
