Martin Luther King was not assassinated. Martin Luther King, Jr., was assassinated in 1968. The reason for it, and whether it was the work of one man or a conspiracy, was never clearly determined, so the reason why becomes, at best, an educated guess.

His influence was to make everyone equal, regardless of race, ethnic group, religion, etc. Martin Luther King Jr is responsible for the rights we have to day, and without him ever living, we would be in a segregated, low tech, country fighting civil war after civil war, blacks against whites.

Martin Luther King was a powerful black man in America, and Gandhi was a fragile yet powerful Indian man in India Gandhi looked for peace between everybody and to stop war. The king was trying to stop segregation and discrimination between the black race and the white man in America Gandhi was a non violence protester and Martin Luther King was not.
