HINDU POLITICAL AND RELIGIOUS CRITIQUES
One must remember that India was partitioned in favor of the Islamic State of Pakistan, which means that India was more or less left over for the Hindus. Muslims in the subcontinent of India decided that they could not share the same government with Hindus. This along with the militant nature of Islam makes it difficult to separate religion from Hindu-Muslim or India-Pakistan relations.

We should note that it is mainly the Hindus in India who have tried to create a free society, not the Muslims of the subcontinent. There is little religious tolerance in Islamic countries, including Pakistan and Bangladesh, where Hindus are routinely oppressed and have been steadily diminishing in numbers. These countries pride themselves in being Islamic states or Islamic republics following traditional Islamic law. Islamic law means that Muslims cannot convert to other religions, though members of other religious groups can convert to Islam.

It means that no one can publicly criticize Islam, though other religions have no such protection. Therefore Hindus must recognize the non-secular, exclusive and non-pluralistic nature of certain religions and their possible social ramifications. Hindus politically should not be against any particular religion, but they should not accept antinational policies, even these are done in the name of religion.
