A book about Gandhi and Bin Laden

Friend of mine, professor of religion at one Florida universities, James L. Rowell, published a book about Gandhi and Ben laden. This book very fair examines the lives and ideas of Mohandas K. Gandhi and Osama bin Laden. Can both men be equally _religious_ figures? How can the religious philosophy of nonviolence respond to its nemesis, which takes life easily and casually?

If you are interested you can find it at amazon

Both are absolutely opposite side of nature also one cannot compare Gandhi with Ben laden on this front.

you are right, they were completely different people, but both of them used their native religion as a tool to achieve their goal... quite interesting..
