When you call yourself an Indian or a Muslim or a Christian or a European,
or anything else, you are being violent. Do you see why it is violent?
Because you are separating yourself from the rest of mankind. When you
separate yourself by belief, by nationality, by tradition, it breeds
violence. So a man who is seeking to understand violence does not belong to
any country, to any religion, to any political party or partial system; he
is concerned with the total understanding of mankind.
