‘A Letter to a Hindu’ was a letter written by Leo Tolstoy to Tarak Nath Das in 1908. In this letter Tolstoy stated that the only way for Indian people to free themselves from the colonial British rule


was a principle of love. Tolstoy saw the law of love espoused in all the world's religions, and he argued that the individual, non-violent application of the law of love in the form of remonstrances, walkouts, and other forms of peaceful resistance were the only alternative to violent revolution . Finally these ideas appeared to be successful in 1947 in the culmination of the Indian Independence Movement.
