LEFTIST SCHOLORSHIP IN INDIA
In particular, Thapar tries to show that the non-violence and tolerance generally ascribed to Hinduism are myths that Hindus or India never really followed. There are a few historical in stances of Hindus being violent or oppressive of Buddhists and Jains, which she emphasizes. 

There are also historical instances of Buddhists being oppressive of non-Buddhists. Such is the egoism inherent in human nature that is difficult to root out. But these are exceptions. There is no Hindu or Buddhists tradition of crusades or holy wars like that of Western religions of Christianity and Islam there is a tradition of non-violence (ahimsa), which however imperfectly followed, was honored in India more so than anywhere else in the world.
