A COMMENT OF RAM SWARUP'S HINDU
VIEW OF CHRISTIANITY AND ISLAM
I will give an
example of the distortion caused by this Hindu view that all religions are the same.
Talking before a group of people in Delhi during a visit to India last year I spoke of the
difference between karma and rebirth oriented religions like Hinduism and Buddhism and
those like Christianity and Islam which teach that we have only one life.
A Hindu in the audience objected and said that the Bible also
teaches karma and rebirth under the statement "as you sow so shall you reap." I
told the person that this was his Hindu interpretation of the Bible and that almost every
single Christian church of every denomination in the United States would throw him out if
he tried to teach such things to their congregation. He was shocked to find this out. Hinduism
begins with the statement from its oldest Rig Veda "that which is the One Truth, the
sages call by many different names.
