23. Rules of Religious War
All his life Bapu had to overcome a lot of hurdles. Perhaps he was born for it. Still he didnít have grudges for anyone. In South Africa, a delegation of his opponent Indian people went to see General Schmutz. But none of them had neither knowledge nor linguistic proficiency to impress him. At last they requested Gandhiji himself to represent them.
Gandhiji accepted the responsibility and did the job satisfactorily! This incident not only proved his friendliness but it caused to grow his respect for those Indian people, who acknowledged their opponentís caliber and trusted him totally. Owing to his openheartedness, Gandhiji had turned foes into friends. He taught gentleness to so many. Whenever he saw deceit and conspiracy, he preached the need to learn the rules of religious war.
