How can religion be used in politics?
Ans. Gandhiji did not consider religion as Hinduism,
Islam or Christianity. To him every religion was based on some belief system supported by rituals.
He always tried to get rid of these rituals.
Gandhiji always preached for using the moral values of all religions as a guide to the political system. He believed that all the religions have some belief system and the ethics drawn from them should be used in politics as a guide. People should be able to voice their needs and interests as a religious community. The use of religion in politics should be done with careful thought and analysis.
