Where is the Gandhi of Islam?

Charles Moore ponders:

"When a nation, a race, a political movement, a group of workers, the followers of a religion have legitimate grievances, there generally arises amongst them a champion who can command respect for his advocacy of peace, his willingness to fight without weapons and to win by moral authority. There may be many such grievances for Muslims in Britain, and in the West, but we are still waiting for the Gandhi or the Martin Luther King to give them the right voice."

Yeah but... does the Koran even allow for peace or tolerance?

From what I've read it can be an inflexible religion.

as far as i understand, the interpretation of Koran that is currently more prevalent is the one that provides very little scope for moderate line of thinking...
but such things are immaterial for a person who intends to rise above all the various interpretations of a holy text, to stand up for the common cause using the means of non-violence. He/she can do that and still be accepted as a proponent of Islam.

...two people looking at the same thing can understand the thing in two totally different ways...
so a person's interpretation of a holy text is not necessarily a limiting factor for him her to act according to his ideology and still conform to Islam.
