I believe with my whole soul that the God of the Koran is also the God of Bhagavad Gita

My whole soul rebels against the idea that Hinduism and Islam represent two antagonistic cultures and doctrines. To assent to such a doctrine is for me a denial of God, for I believe with my whole soul that the God of the Koran is also the God of Bhagavad Gita.

M.K.Gandhi, in Rediscovering Gandhi, Yogesh Chadha, pp.368-9

…which is irrational since the conceptions of God in those two books are mutually exclusive. If ‘God’ is the God of both books then all the parts of the two traditions that are mutually exclusive must be removed – and who could trust what remains?

The God of the Koran abhors images, but for the Hindu Brahman is worshipped through images and representations and incarnations. But God has no partners and certainly never even once became incarnate as ANY muslim will quickly tell you according to his holy book. Perhaps Gandhi’s god was schizophrenic – poor thing.
