Here is what Yogananda thought about Gandhi. Gandhiji was, according to Yogananda, a saint and a prophet.

From an Article "The Saint Gandhi"
by Yoganandaji
East-West Magazine, May-June 1948

Two kinds of prophets come into the world. There are qualitative prophets, who make great men out of their disciples. And there are quantitative prophets, who influence the masses so that vast multitudes are inspired and receive some light–light from the presence of a Master. Some Masters do both; but from that qualitative and quantitative standard we have to judge all the prophets of the world.

Qualitatively speaking, I have met many great Christlike masters with whom I have lived and about whom I have written in my book, Autobiography of a Yogi. But quantitatively speaking, I think that since the time of Christ there has been no single individual who has influenced the masses more than Mahatma Gandhi. Christ's teaching of loving enemies was never better demonstrated in the life of one individual in modern times than in the life of Mahatma Gandhi.
