HINDU POLITICAL AND RELIGIOUS CRITIQUES
In attempts to create political tolerance in India Hindus have tried to make all religions the same, calling them all equally valid paths to God, and this even though other religions may not define themselves as paths to God (Paramatman) in the Hindu sense at all. Modern India has built its politics of dealing with minority religions on this idea of Sarva Dharma Samabhava.

Yet it has gone beyond the idea that all religions should be given equal respect by the law. The further idea has arisen that the majority religion should stoop down to help minority religions and should not do anything to offend them, including not questioning the foreign missionary elements working within them, even if these forces are antinational in nature. This has led Hindus to ignore the missionary element in religions, even when active in their own neighborhood.

From fear of losing the favor of minority religious support in the political sphere, Hindus in India have failed to defend themselves from the onslaught of these same missionary religions. Hindus are therefore confronted with a dichotomy or at least dilemma to consider. This is the balance between political tolerance of religions and acceptance of all religions on a spiritual level. Hindus have confused the two issues to their own detriment.
