This has often given the missionaries a free hand to prey upon the weaker elements of Hindu society and left such poorer Hindu groups feeling abandoned by Hindu society. Let us place the matter in perspective relative to a Western country. It would be like the United States allowing Hindu, Buddhist or Islamic missionary efforts to occur on a grand scale in the country but Christians not being allowed to criticize or try to counter such efforts in order for the country not to appear intolerant.

It would be like America taxing majority Christian churches while giving tax breaks to minority religions, as the government of India does taking money from Hindu temples. Would this ever occur? Of course not. It is well known in America that if any religious group was given special tax breaks, everyone would join it or every religion would agitate for similar benefits.

We must remember that though Hinduism is the majority religion of India, during a thousand years of foreign rule, it was oppressed. Hindu temples were routinely destroyed and Hindu religious activities were either curtailed or looked upon with disfavor by the government. Present minority religions of India, Islam and Christianity, ruled over Hindus and aimed at conversion of Hindus as a government policy. After independence the socialist government of India has been anti-Hindu as well and missionary activity remains strong in the country.
