What were the ideological differences between M.K. Gandhi and B.R. Ambedkar?


1.While Gandhiji advocated decentralized village oriented development centered around Khadi and self sufficiency, Ambedkar advocated industrialization and urbanization. He felt that villages would not help break the caste identities.

2.Mahatma Gandhi was skeptical of powers given to the state and advocated more powers to the society itself. Whereas Ambedkar advocated more powers to the state and was skeptical of the society (because of its inability to reform itself over time)

3.Also Ambedkar personally rejected Hinduism because of inherent ills and his lack of trust over capacity to reform while Mahatma Gnadhi believed that any reforms could be brought from within the religion.

4.Also Gandhiji advocated that in our country, religion could not be separated from politics while Nehru and Ambedkar differed greatly on the issue and promoted secularism.

5.Gandhiji supported truth and voluntary individual efforts for nation’s progress as his idea of nationalism. While Ambedkar believed that only social, economic and political justice was true nationalism. Hence Gandhiji’s was bottom-up approach while the latter evolved the top-down approach of nationalism.
