THE DANGER OF HINDUS SPEAKING IN THE NAME OF OTHER RELIGIONS
It is not enough for Hindus to quote the Sermon on the Mount or a few scattered verses from the Koran and state that these books give the same teachings as the Gita or the Vedas. The entire Bible and Koran must be considered, along their traditional commentators who have known the original language and historical background. Traditional Hebrew and Arabic scholars must be consulted.

Why is it that such scholars, including those trained in these religions and their practices since birth, do not find teachings like those of Hinduism in their holy books? What Sanskrit scholar, even a non-Hindu, cannot find karma, rebirth and Self-realization in the Gita or Upanishads? Why is it that Biblical or Koranic scholars do not find such teachings in the Bible or the Koran? Certainly if such teachings exist in these texts they are hidden and exceptional or they would have been more easily noticed.

How can Hindus, who don't even know the original language of these teachings, say that traditional scholars have misunderstood what was said in their own holy books? Hindus can only do so if they can produce a higher level of scholarship about these works, not just by making speculations.
