And if Hindus do not maintain Hinduism who shall save it? Much mystical poetry, though written by authors with Muslim names, uses Hindu imagery and Hindu terminology. Gandhi himself wrote a large part of each issue of the paper, and its columns show perhaps more clearly than anything else the particular mix of the personal, the religious and the political that became his unique public stance. Gandhi is both one of the critical figures in modern Hinduism’s engagement with other faiths and the supreme representative of Hinduism in contemporary inter-faith dialogues.
