I have a dream.

We will be able to speed up that day when all of God's children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants, and Catholics will be able to join hands” Martin Luther King

Influenced by the thought of civil disobedience based on the non-violence of Henry David Thoreau and the vision of Mahatma Gandhi in the Independence process of India; he decided to base his entire struggle in non-violence. The philosophy of the Non-Violence of Leo Tolstoy also influenced on Martin Luther King.

“The teachings of Henry David Thoreau revived in our movement for non-violent struggle for civil rights” Martin Luther King

A professor of King, who had met Gandhi recommended visiting the Gandhi family in India. In a speech at an Indian radio 1959, King said:

“In a literal sense, Mahatma Gandhi incarnates in his life certain universal principles that are inherent in the moral structure of the universe, and these principles are as ineluctable as the law of gravity.” Martin Luther King

Again, we see a Hinduism spiritual leader Gandhi (whom himself acknowledged the influence of Henry David Thoreau), inspiring a Christian spiritual leader. Gandhi has inspired others Indian Business People as Dr. Hamied (Muslim).

“Through violence, you may kill the impostor, but you cannot kill the lie, nor establish the truth. Hate cannot hide the hate: only love can do this.” Martin Luther King

Reginald Mengi was awarded the Martin Luther King award.
