HINDU POLITICAL AND RELIGIOUS CRITIQUES
Recently the United States Congress unanimously passed a resolution specifically condemning oppression of Christians throughout the world. But such a resolution condemning oppression of Hindus, which is more common in the world than oppression of Christians, would be rejected by the government of India as communal. Though Hindus have created a secular country, they have done so in a way that is not considerate, much less protective of their own religion, contrary to how Western secular democracies have functioned.

In creating a country in which all religions are tolerated Hindus, alone of all people, have felt the additional need to make all religions the same on a spiritual level. Hindus have chosen not merely to accept all religions but to try to exalt them all. In order to remain secular and tolerant Hindus have felt that they should not criticize or try to counter inimical religious groups and their activities to undermine Hinduism.

Naturally this has led to a weakening of the ability of Hindus to defend their religion even in their own country. That is why, in spite of so many ashrams built in India and so many spiritual books on Hindu gurus or sadhanas being published, there are few books in India in defense of Hinduism, Hindu critiques of other religions, or Hindu rebuttals to missionaries. The policy has been to ignore the aggression of the missionaries and emphasize that the spirituality and tolerance of Hinduism can endure all things.
