I think it is better to get the similarities and differences out in the open rather than pretend, for political expedience, that everything is homogenous.
As for Gandhi, after his wife died he began to sleep in the same bed with naked young women, to include his young grandnieces, apparently to overcome his sexual urges. How would this wash today?
