HINDUISM UNDER SIEGE AND RELIGIOUS TOLERANCE
The Dangers of Over Tolerance Among Hindus

Hinduism is the largest non-missionary religion in the world. It is the religion that has best preserved itself against the missionary onslaught, having held back both Islam and Christianity, which have attacked it with military, economic and religious force for centuries.

In this regard Hinduism fared better than Buddhism. Islam eliminated nearly all traces of Buddhism from Central Asia where it was strong in the pre-Islamic era. The main parts of India where Islam spread like Sind and Bengal had strong Buddhist communities as well, which were not able to preserve themselves. Similarly Buddhist countries in Asia like Korea and Taiwan are quickly becoming Christianized.

China did halt the spread of both Islam and Christianity but not so much by its Buddhist background, which was never complete, but because of its great history of national pride and strong armies. The same could be said to be true of Japan. Meanwhile Buddhist countries like China and Vietnam were easily overcome by communism and have yet to recover from that influence. India, though coming under the domination intellectually of Marxism, managed to save itself from being ruled by that dogma as well.
