From Brian Whitaker of Guardian : "Gandhi was a Hindu but readily incorporated other ideas into his philosophy. Like many Muslims today, he would undoubtedly have appreciated jihad, self-sacrifice and martyrdom as concepts, though not the methods that often accompany them."


"Jihad on you baby."


Yikes!

Actualy if Jihad as described by the Koran is quite close to the passive resistance that Ghandi preached. During a Jihad, you can only defend, not harm innocents tree etc. Not quite Ghandi like but a far cry from the radical interpretation the Bin laden and the Whabbi bunch preach

I think Ghandi would have had a problem with these extremists.
