Absolve - A great quality

Mahatma Gandhi
Provocative hiss
Absolve & go great
Ridicule the mockery

Mahatma Gandhi was thrown out of a train in Pietermaritzburg, South Africa after being racially ridiculed. He never reacted back with aggression. 
Gandhi employed the same strategy when he was repeatedly hissed and ridiculed by the then British rulers of India. He absolved them of all their misdeeds and fought for freedom in a peaceful way.

Gandhi and his style has been an inspiration for several world leaders.
