Suppose your son misbehaves towards you or your father one day in his anger is unduly severe to you it is no great virtue to forgive them. Suppose a brother of yours-does you some harm and you say “Never mind you arc my brother  let you go ” there is no great virtue in that. The difficulty is when you have to forget the sins of your enemies. If your Dayady who has always hated you does you some fresh injury and you forgive that then it is a real act of forgiveness. It is that which the Mahatma preaches. He says “Forgive thane enemies ” which is one of the teachings of Jesus Christ. It is a mistake to think Christianity alone preaches the virtue. Other religions also teach it. Now Gandhi is pre-eminently a Hindu and he says he is living the best part of Hinduism when he himself forgives the sins of enemies and asks people to love them as their friends.
