A COMMENT OF RAM SWARUP'S HINDU
VIEW OF CHRISTIANITY AND ISLAM
There are many
books available in the world today that provide critiques of different religions from both
religious and non-religious standpoint. Most religions have their own books stating their
position relative to the others and pointing out the unique validity of their faith.
Strangely, however, it is difficult to find any real Hindu
critique of predominant Western religions, though much criticism of Hinduism, generally
inaccurate, is easy to discover from their point of view.
However, now there is at least one important Hindu critique of Western religions,
Ram Swarup's Hindu View of Christianity and Islam, which examines these religions from the
standpoint of yogic spirituality and points out the difference between religion as an
internal quest in the Eastern world and religion as an external conversion oriented social
movement in the West.
