Gandhiji lived a life on this planet with a philosophy far ahead of his time. May be someday in distant future centuries from now if all religions are still existing his philosophy may become the guiding principle of human existence. But when one religion claims’ Allah is the only god ‘ and non believers should be exterminated there is little scope for gandhiji’s ideals. Infact during his own lifetime when questioned whether his philosophy of non-violence would have worked if it were someone else other than British were ruling India he was honest to confess that he would not have succeeded. Ultimately there is only one question. Do I have to surrender my belief, my faith, my god and my very life just because some fanatic demands that I be nullified ?
