SARVA DHARMA SAMABHAVA : UNITY OR CONFUSION OF RELIGIONS
Let a pope, bishop, mufti or mullah proclaim that one can find God without Jesus or Mohammed, the Bible or the Koran. If these religious leaders are not saying such things how can anyone state that all religions are the same?

Belief-centered religions are based upon time, place and person and therefore contain much that is not universal or valid. The exclusivism of their beliefs has historically led to forceful efforts to convert others that are adharmic. Hence religious exclusivism is the real bar on social harmony between religious groups. Making all religions the same has not ended this exclusivism but, on the contrary, has allowed it to continue without question, giving it a kind of religious sanction. It has placed exclusive beliefs on par with more tolerant traditions. 

While there is much adharmic in the social evils, like caste, that have arisen in a misapplication of the Hindu religion, there is no adharma in its core formulation that transcends time, place and person, and emphasizes the eternal over the historical element in religion. Hinduism does not require an exclusive formulation of truth but welcomes diversity and multiplicity in religious approaches.
