Here are only a few examples of the historical inaccuracies that the author has included in this so-called fact-based biography:
Mahatma Gandhi was a Hindu, not a Jain as stated by the author. Furthermore, his entire life philosophy was based on Hindu teachings.
Gandhi fought many existing social injustices of the time, but his primary battle, the battle which earned him the title of "Mahatma" or "Great Soul" was that against the British for India's independence. The author states this battle almost as an aside to that of his fight against caste-based prejudicial practices.
India and Pakistan were the two countries formed at the end of this great Independence Struggle, however, India was not formed as "Hindu India" as the author states. India was created a democracy and remains a democracy to date.Read more ›
In this world, where cultures are divided and we seem to be constantly in war, it is important to educate children with accurate information. This books takes up a world personality who was born and lived in a different country, and our little children form impressions about these cultures from these windows to those cultures. Calling India a "Hindu" India is an insult to India. It is the largest democracy in the world and one of the very few secular countries. The country DOES NOT have a religious identity. In fact it has the second largest muslim population in the world and to my knowledge, has more christians living there than in the United States of America.
