Mohandas Gandhi on Conversion as an Impediment to Peace

January 30, 1937

It is an error which is perhaps the greatest impediment to the world's progress toward peace. Why should a Christian want to convert a Hindu to Christianity? Why should he not be satisfied if the Hindu is a good or godly man?
