Q.

Mahatma Gandhi followed the principles and teachings of Jesus Christ.

Non Violence, and love for people are some examples

It is very evident when he says "When somebody slaps you in one cheek, show your other" this was told by Jesus 2000 years back.

Subiting youself to unjustice and crime without any attempt to stop it my FORCE,SPEACH,WRITTING. is cosidered cowardness. Yes sure at that time Ghandiji concept was good. but not now. God ask u that when he have given u strenght then why have u not used it to stop evil

Mahatma GANDHI also said "proselytizing under the cloak of humanitarian work is unhealthy, to say the least" and "If I had the power and could legislate, I should stop all proselytising. ... it is the deadliest poison that ever sapped the fountain of truth." And he lived a pucca hindu all his life !

Mr Deepak, WHO GAVE U THIS INFO ? MIGHT BE Jesus himself !! ..........................Before converting to your recent Christianity, DID u EVER READ BHAGWAT GEETA ? Mahatma Gandhi, got inspiration from that Holy Book....it is written in 12th chapter of Bhagwat Geeta..."aadestaa sarwa bhutanam, maitra, karunaa ebocho......" It is written in his biography that He got inspiration from Bhagwat Geeta......Bhagwat Geeta is 5500 years old......and still it is shining and giving path to lots of people other than Hindu religion also..... Please Never make comment without knowing fact !!

Todays scenario, this principle not going to work. Follow what Neta ji Subhash Chandra, Bhagat Singh said. These politicians are too corrupt and even can declare a Desh Bhakt to Desh Drohi and also a terrorists. They are even not leaving our Indian Army and trying to proove them part of bomb blasts in Malegaon. This is really a hight, we can think of they can take part of meeting to wake up Indian people but how can they kill like a terrorists. On the other part they trying to save terrorist Afjal who involved in parliament attack. All these white cloth people pary jesus & Gandhi for their benifits.
