HINDUISM UNDER SIEGE AND RELIGIOUS TOLERANCE
Yet in spite of their history of being the victims of missionary aggression Hindus are the main religious group in modern times that has proclaimed the unity of all religions and pointed out a common human spiritual aspiration behind them. This attitude of tolerance has caused Hindus to develop respect for other religions, particularly the mystics of the world, which is quite laudable.

However they have taken this principle to an extreme in which they accept the teachings and practices of other religions as true, even if these are contrary to what their own tradition teaches as valid. Because of this sense of tolerance Hindus hesitate to criticize anyone's religious belief, including the beliefs of the missionary groups that are attacking them. Hindus have hoped that their expression of tolerance might mitigate against the intolerance of other groups.

While Hindus like to believe that this is the case, a little examination shows that it seldom occurs. The missionary aggression, however muted or veiled, continues.  Hindus are the first to hold conferences on the unity of religion inviting members of other groups, including religions traditionally hostile to Hinduism like Christianity and Islam, to speak. Such a practice can be an excellent way to begin a dialogue with different religions to face the many problems between them.
