Because it appeared as thought of the day it has to be a generic message? What 
kind of reasoning is this?
It is not that those who translated it or those put the quote on web dwell in 
the mind of HH..

I find this and above statement as being completely out of place & irrelevant. 
No body is saying we go like christians and convert them. The case here is of an 
individual who expressed interest in Hinduism.. nobody put a sword behind his 
back and asked him to go to HH & convert to Hinduism.

HH rejected because he is most likely he is an not genuine about his request.

> I didn't find any instance where Sri Adhi Shankara had

>wouldn't take it to the ultimate goal.  

He did not even accept views other than advaita within the Hindu fold itself.. 
where comes the question of him agreeing that people of other religions could 
get moxa? 

Purge your mind of this mindless universalism. It does good to no-one. If 
anything, it will terribly harm Hindu interests.
