The flag bearer of peace, the most potent symbol of peace and non-violence, from the days when India was boiling in the fire of bondage and Indians were ready to take lives of any British to mark the fight for freedom. It's in the recollection that the man who lead the Indian towards the path of nonviolence, who taught the aggressive youth of that era to hold the calm, fight the odd with nonviolence and who was successful too. During those time when the thing seems impossible to calm down, Mahatma Gandhi bought peace to the Nation losing his soul in retrospect, the quantum of solace never received. Why, Mahatma  Gandhi (1869-1948), never won Noble Peace Prize, and can not now India can demand A NOBEL PEACE PRIZE  posthumous For Gandhi? 

Even today when the posthumous awards are given the Norwegian committee never considered to awards Gandhi The Peace Prize.   Gandhi was nominated during his active period in the year 1937, 1938, 1939 and finally in the year 1947,  few days before he was murdered in the year 1948. The omission has been publicly regretted by later members of the Nobel Committee tells Oyvind Tonnesson the editor form Noble Peace Prize organisation,  whose journal was published a year before his death in the year 1999. 

The Nobel Peace Prize committee tells, Mahatma Gandhi was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize a few days before he was murdered in 1948, i.e. in the year 1947. That was the very same year when Indian was on the verge of getting Freedom, that quite high time, awarding Mahatma Gandhi the Peace Prize may have affected the reciprocal bonds between Britain and the Norwegian Nation may be. That very year, the Nobel Committee decided to make no award because "there was no suitable living candidate".

 Øyvind Tønnesson, In his literature, writes, The strongest symbol of non-violence was never granted the symbol Nobel Peace Prize which the world celebrates as the mark of peace, questioning why the editor marks few perception in retrospect.He writes Mahatma was nominated several times but never awarded the prize. Why?

Was the horizon of the Norwegian Nobel Committee too narrow? Were the committee members unable to appreciate the struggle for freedom among non-European peoples?" Or were the Norwegian committee members perhaps afraid to make a prize award which might be detrimental to the relationship between their own country and Great Britain?

The nomination of Gandhi Many a Time but, not awarding him was openly regrated by later members of the committee during the period when Dalai Lama was awarded the Peace Prize in the year 1989. The organization who never commented on the speculation why Gandhi Ji was not awarded the Peace Prize. 
Gandhi Who begins his journey towards the betterment of Indas starts from the land of South Africa, where he fought for the improvement and rights of Indian minorities inculcating the nonviolence a fundamental human reason to protest, his method of satyagraha was highly idealistic and become the torch of a fight for freedom in India too. Without rejecting the rules of Law as a principle, Gandhi Ji taught Indians to break the laws which were unreasonable or suppressive; an individual must accept the punishment for having violated the law. His ideology was, one should calmly yet with determination reject the logic of the law in question, and finally first in South Africa, and later in India, he let the Britishers recognise the unlawfulness of their legislation.

The friends of India, the then Friends of Gandhi were the First to  Nomination him for the Nobel Peace Prize. Among those who actively admired Gandhi. "Friends of India" associations which had been established in Europe and the USA in the early 1930s.The man who backed the nomination the Gandhi was the member of the Norwegian Parliament, "Ole Colbjornsen".

Then Worm Muller's reports and after a decade of Jens Arup Seip gives the clear indication, India's participation in the Second World War and the conflict between Hindu and Muslim communities during the partition are the core reasons to turns him down from the peace prizes, but that seems in the influence of the British. Gandhi Ji in his power was always committed to nonviolence and freedom of India from the British Raj was victorious by that channel. The Nobel committee has its explanation, to which they call the partition of India and the aftermath of bloodshed was the outcome of the seed sown by the British in the mind of Indian then leaders, Gandhi's efforts were pure peacefully. 

The influence of British power over the Domain is no more, now in the new preview when wars are illegals ruling over the extent boundaries is not approved. After decades showing maturity when London Mayor Sadiq Khan accepts the guilty and apology
 for the Jaliawala Bagh mascara for the doing  of Colonel Reginald Dyer, why not the Norwegian committee grows up to take a stand and support the Name of Gandhi for the Peace Prize? Instead of staying under the shadow of British? 

Is the judicious post for The Nobel Prize Organization is an indication that India must raise demand? 

When the Quoted entry of November 18, 1948, in Gunnar Jahn's diary indicates that the  Norwegian  seems clear that they seriously considered a posthumous award for Gandhi, when the committee, for formal reasons, ended up not making such an award, they decided to reserve the prize, and then, one year later, not to spend the prize money for 1948 at all. What many thought should have been Mahatma Gandhi's place on the list of Laureates was silently but respectfully left open. 

Should India not propose again and submit the name of Mahatma Gandhi for the consideration again? India must not settle instead can try to raise the voice for the Noble Peace Prize posthumous 
for Gandhiji in view when  British are no more the influencing authority over the Nobel Peace Prize Committee. - Window To News
