You certainly have generated a lot of interest from the Soka Gakkai; two Vice General Directors, Ian McIlraith and Bill Aiken. I applaud you.
Ghandi, King, and Ikeda are all controversial men. I will leave aside Dr. King for the moment. The Dalits [untouchables], the oppressed peoples of India of whom I had contact through the editor of the Dalit Voice, VT Rajshekar, are certainly not impressed with the Mahatma [Ghandi]. Those million people who died in the forced March of 1947 too, would not be impressed. According to the Buddhism of Nichiren Daishonin, good intentions are fraught with unintended consequences when not based on the Lotus Sutra and the teachings of Shakyamuni Buddha (Enlightenment).
It was only Shakyamuni Buddha, in the entire history of India, who had the Dalits best interest in mind. Buddha taught that one becomes a Brahmin through virtue, not through birth. Ghandi was too embroiled in the teachings of castism, to have been anything but a pawn of the Brahmanical power brokers.
Daisaku Ikeda is a pawn of the power brokers of the Club of Rome and their new world order while the Lotus Sutra teaches that peace and security in this life and a fortunate birth in the next is realized through the One Buddha Vehicle. The socio-political strategies of such men as Ghandi, Ikeda, and King, are doomed to failure.
