    Abuse of Secularism

    Hinduism has never been a structured religion, unlike Christianity. The concept of secularism therefore, does not apply to this country. Tolerance is the name of the Hindu game. This pampering of the minorities went to the extent of former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh repeatedly declaring that Muslims ought to have first claim on the country's resources. Muslims First was his regime's slogan, which continued up to 2014.

  • Philosophy of Religion

    Philosophy of Religion

    The Abrahamic religions, we have seen, are deductive in their logic. They begin with a premise and work downwards. On the other hand, the Hindu view is inductive in its logic, which moves from facts on the ground upwards till it reaches a conclusion. Hinduism does not have a book as its fountain of belief, there is no premise and therefore no corollaries which a follower can refer to, or a commandment or guidance.

  • The myth of nationalism

    The myth of nationalism

    The list of India‘s unknown heroes and heroines whose cumulative sacrifices won our freedom from colonial yoke is worn by every Indian on his/her sleeve. Being Hindu is one thing; to imbibe and propagate the inclusivity of Hinduism (as distinct from an aberrant Hindutva) and economic and social progress are the unique and stellar tests of nationalism, as much as it is the constitutional duty of a government to assure India's cosmopolitan view of life.

  • Hindu Secularism

    Hindu Secularism

    The East has no native concept of the 'secular'. Whether Arabic, Persian or Urdu, there is no synonym for the word 'secular'. Islam is an all-embracing prescription for life, whether individual or collective, social or political, religious or otherwise. The question of separating any of them does not arise. In contrast, Christianity provided in the Bible itself that Hinduism has no need of separating anything from the State. It has no concept of the secular. For the simple reason that the Hindu State has never had anything to do with the priest or worship or temple.
