Pas­sion for Unity

Governance Now - - BRIEFINGS -

i had re­al­ized early enough in South africa that there was no gen­uine friend­ship be­tween the Hin­dus and the musalmans. i never missed a sin­gle op­por­tu­nity to re­move ob­sta­cles in the way of unity. it was not in my na­ture to pla­cate any­one by adu­la­tion, or at the cost of self- re­spect. But my South african ex­pe­ri­ences had con­vinced me that it would be on the ques­tion of Hindu-mus­lim unity that my ahimsa would be put to its sever­est test, and that the ques­tion pre­sented the widest field for my ex­per­i­ments in ahimsa. The con­vic­tion is still there. ev­ery mo­ment of my life i re­al­ize that God is putting me on my trial.
