Raghupati Raghav Rajaram , How Original Was Changed Gandhi

The song Raghupathi Raghavarajaram was taught to me in school when I was about seven years,about 63 Years ago.

I was taught that this song was composed by Mahatma Gandhi and I was taught that it speaks about the identity of All Gods.

That Allah is another form of Iswar. So at that age , I was led to believe that both are same.

That the two religions are different ,I came to know later.

Raghupathi Raghava Lyrics

I am surprised at the lengths people would go to appease a section of the Community at the cost of another by tampering with a religious song.

‘The original lyrics of Raghupati Raghava Rajaaram are attributed to Sri Lakshamanacharya ; This Ram Dhun was later edited and popularised by Sri M.K.Gandhi; This was widely attributed to his attempts to bring about reconciliation¬†‘
