GANDHI THE GREAT HINDU LIBERAL

"The Hindu system of philosophy regards all religions as containing the elements of truth in them and enjoins an attitude of respect and reverence towards them."  (Young India, December 6, 1928. Cited at Page 212 of The Essential Gandhi by Louis Fischer, Vintage, February 1983)

 

“[All] religions are more or less true.  All proceed from the same God but all are imperfect because they come down to us through imperfect human instrumentality… [No] propaganda can be allowed which reviles other religions … The best way of dealing with such propaganda is to publicly condemn it …”(Young India, May 24, 1924. Cited at Page 213 of The Essential Gandhi by Louis Fischer, Vintage, February 1983)

 

“That religion and that nation will be blotted out of the face of the earth which pins its fate to injustice, untruth or violence.  God is Light, not darkness.  God is Love, not hate.” (Congress Party Presidential Address, in, December 26, 1924. Cited at Page 215 of The Essential Gandhi by Louis Fischer, Vintage, February 1983)

 

"… Madness answered with madness simply deepens, it never dispels it.  Hinduism will be sorry stuff if it has to exist on cowardly vengeance that pursues those who can offer no effective resistance."  (Young India, September 29, 1927.  Cited at Page 211 of The Essential Gandhi by Louis Fischer, Vintage, February 1983)

 

"… few men are wantonly wicked.  The most heinous and the most cruel crimes of which history has record have been committed under cover of religion or equally other noble motive.” (Young India, July 7, 1927.  Cited at Page 211 of The Essential Gandhi by Louis Fischer, Vintage, February 1983)

 

"The golden rule of conduct … is mutual toleration, seeing that we will never all think alike and that we shall always see Truth a fragment and from different angles of vision.” (Young India, September 23, 1926. Cited at Page 213 of The Essential Gandhi by Louis Fischer, Vintage, February 1983)

This web site is held by Sanjeev Sabhlok in trust. It will be transferred to the National Liberal Party of India when it is formed.

This is not a registered political party of India, nor it close to becoming a party.

It is the “Ideal” party promoted by the India Policy Institute in 1998-2000. It awaits your energy.
