He explained, Gandhi Ji believed that all countrymen are children of one mother, however they can be diversified on different factors such as religion, economic conditions, political commitments, cast or color etc., These separate thought process gives birth to three negativities, i.e., Fear, Suspicion and Hatred, and these things work against the communal harmony.
Gandhi Ji started his first experiment on communal harmony in South Africa, where he worked on uniting religions of Indian community and bringing them together to fight against racial discrimination, which was a common practice there. Shri Gyan further talked about Gandhi Ji’s deep understanding of all religions, where he identified that the basis of all religions is only one thing, which is ‘Truth’.
