Have you met the Muslim Gandhi?

Khan Abdul Ghaffar Khan was a Pashtun political and spiritual leader widely known as the "Frontier Gandhi." A partner of Mahatma Gandhi in India's struggle for independence, Khan was a champion of women's rights and demonstrated the compatibility of Islam and nonviolence. Nominated twice for the Nobel Peace Prize, Khan's improbably life and legacy remain little known. Khan's legacy advances a greater understanding of what is currently perceived as Muslim, Pashtun, and Afghan. His heroic life offers a profound message of hope for our increasingly troubled times.
