Tagore and religion

GURUDEV R.N. TAGORE ON ISLAM. “There is a religion on the earth, which has distinct enmity against all other religions. This is Islam. They are not satisfied with just observing their own religions, but are determined to destroy all other religions. That’s why the only way to make peace with them is to embrace their religion.”

[The above is a part of a letter written by Rabindranath Tagore to Sri Kalidas Nag on 7th Asar, 1329 Bangabda, compiled in the article ‘Hindu-Muslim’ in the book ‘Kalantar’ and compiled in the Complete Works of Rabindranath (in Bengali), published by Viswabharati University, 1982, Vol. 24, p – 375.

Why Tagore was hurt so much, though he was a soft hearted man?
