HINDUISM UNDER SIEGE AND RELIGIOUS TOLERANCE
The unity of religions that Hindus have been promoting has served to divide and fragment the Hindus themselves. It has been a vehicle not for bringing religions together but for separating Hindus from one another. In muting any Hindu self-defense it has made Hindus more open to attack. If Christians and Muslims are really tolerant then let them recall their missionaries, which are nothing short of religious armies.

Let them not only speak well of Hinduism but do something to alone for their centuries of violence against Hindus. Otherwise such statements of tolerance must be viewed as hypocritical. While tolerance is both good and necessary, it should not be naive. It should not ignore the fact of intolerance, but should expose it for what it is. It should not be a one way street in which one group masochistically tolerates another group's aggression.

Tolerance must not be a form of passivity, resignation or appeasement. It must have an active voice to challenge and remove intolerance, not to provide a space in which it can grow. This is a point that Hindus have yet to learn. We do not live in an age of real religious tolerance and respect. Nor have religions given up their political agendas. We live in a new age of political and economic accommodation, which in turn is a mask for multinational commercialism.
