Hence, his gospel covers all fields of human activity and embraces all human beings, irrespective of their caste, colour, creed, race, religion, sex, age, or nationality. Further, it encircles one and all, either as an individual, or a member of a family, or a subject of state, or an employee of any avocation. "It is only by winning men's hearts that he sought to make converts. Men of religion have seldom, very seldom, been as tolerant as Asoka. In order to convert people to their own faith, they have seldom scrupled to use force and terrorism and fraud. The whole of history is full of religious persecution and religious wars, and in the name of religion and of God perhaps more blood has been shed than in any other name. It is good therefore to remember how a great son of India, intensely religious, and the head of a powerful empire behaved in order to convert people to his ways of thought. It is strange that any one should be so foolish as to think that religion and faith can be thrust down a person's throat at the point of sword or a baynet". This applauds Jawaharlal the world celebrity in his "Glimpses of World History". Many other endorsed him in hundreds of master-pieces before and after him. So, effective propagation of its tenets became all the more urgent and important.
