HINDU POLITICAL AND RELIGIOUS CRITIQUES
Hence it is difficult to argue that Hindus in India, though they are the majority, have an unfair advantage and other religions require special favor to prevent discrimination against them. In fact one could better argue that the government of India, under Western influences, has been continuing the same colonial anti-Hindu policies under the guise of secularism.

Secularism in American does not mean that Christianity has to bow down before other religions but that no religion has a legal sanction in its favor. However, modern India has made secularism into an abasement of Hinduism. The result is that the same conversion policies promoted by previous British and Islamic rulers are now allowed by the Indian government, and that just as British and Islamic rulers inhibited Hindu criticism of their conversion efforts, so the Indian government looks with disfavor on Hindu efforts to discriminate their beliefs from those of others.

In India today Hindus are often regarded as communal for questioning the very religions that are trying to convert them. Missionaries are not criticized as communal because Hindus should tolerate all religions. It is not for Hindus to criticize the faith of another, though others can criticize Hindus if that is part of their faith. This disparity has led to much confusion and national weakness. The problem is that Hindus have confused political tolerance of religions with political catering to religions and with an acceptance of all religions as good.
