Gandhi (Ben Kingsley) and Rev. Andrews (Ian Charleson) encounter a racist youth (Daniel Day-Lewis) in the street. (2:42)
"If Christians have caste differences..."
M. K. Gandhi in his autobiography tells how, during his days in South Africa as a young Indian lawyer, he read the Gospels and saw in the teachings of Jesus the answer to the major problem facing the people of India, the caste system.
In the scene in the clip above, Gandhi (Ben Kingsley) and Rev. Andrews (Ian Charleson) encounter a racist youth (Daniel Day-Lewis) in the street. Not only does Gandhi have great courage to face the youth, but says, "There is room for us all."
Later, seriously considering embracing the Christian faith, Gandhi went to a white-only church one Sunday morning, intending to talk to the pastor about the idea. When he entered the Church, however, the usher refused to give him a seat and told him to go and worship in another church with his own colored people. Gandhi left the church and never returned. “If Christians have caste differences also,” he said, “I might as well remain a Hindu.” (Fr. Munacci)
