A COMMENT OF RAM SWARUP'S HINDU
VIEW OF CHRISTIANITY AND ISLAM
are not merely the same and equally good, as Ram Swarup points out. All water is also one
but not all water is fit to drink. Though all water is one we must still be careful with
the particular water that we actually drink. Ramakrishna, one of the Hindu saints who is
looked to for this all religions are the same doctrine, practiced Islam for three days and
in a highly unorthodox manner, visualized Christ but never really practiced Christianity,
while practicing various Hindu teachings on a daily basis for over thirty years.
His point was not that all religions are the same and equal ways to
Self-realization, which is not even true of all the branches of Hinduism, but that there
is something good in all religions, just as there is in all people.
