Ghandi ignored the warnings in the letter sent to him, instead writing manuscripts on the back about the country's health crisis.
A foreboding manuscript sent to Gandhi warning him of the dangers of religious fanatics six weeks before he was assassinated has emerged for sale for £20,000.
One of the Independance movement leader's followers wrote to him on December 21, 1947, to express his fears about the 'fundamental evil of religious fanaticism'.
