Anna Hazare follows a protest strategy that was being followed by Mahatma Gandhi. The ideology was to have a fast in regard of corruption. Anna Hazare first gave the ultimatum to the ruling government that they should pass the strong Janlokpal bill. First of all he gave very clear and detailed information to the government. Now it was government that was fearful to pass it in no time. Hence, he has to take an action which was taught by Mahatma Gandhi and that is of "Protesting in a Non-Violent method". I think the comparison should never be done because it leads to intricacies. Hence, Mahatma Gandhi was a father of nation and Anna Hazare is a person who follows his Ideology.
