THE TWO WINGS OF DHARMA
When we are confronted with oppression or violence we should not appease or accept it, from whatever quarter it comes. We have to take a stand against it. Mahatma Gandhi stated that to remove evil, it must be exposed. The actions he undertook exposed the violence hidden in the British rule of India. 

Gandhi did not appease the British, though he practiced non-violence. He did not remain silent and inactive in the face of the oppression perpetrated by them, and hence they had to see the truth of what they were doing. Yet there are times when such a passive non-violence may not be enough and a more Kshatriya response is appropriate, if not crucial for the protection of Dharma. 

Here Gandhian non-violence can fail. In this regard Gandhi encouraged Hindus not to defend themselves even against criminals and goondas, which is a such a questionable policy.
