"I greatly appreciate the work of Global Human Rights Defence. The movement is still young, but well focused. Defence of human rights should be a central theme in global relations. It is the task of governments, but also of civil society.” -Dr Jan Pronk –
"I look forward to celebrating the 'Gandhi Jayanti' on October 2nd, together with members of Global Human Rights Defence. Gandhiji's contribution to the entire world in terms of his message of love, understanding and compassion remains as relevant today as it was during his life time. His contribution to India's struggle for freedom will always be recalled with gratitude by each generation of my countrymen."- H.E. Mr Manbir Singh, Ambassador of India -
"Gandhi dreamed of a classless society living in perfect harmony, with no untouchability; with gender equality, and peace with all the world.This dream has not been fulfilled."- Tushar Gandhi -
