THE DANGER OF HINDUS SPEAKING IN THE NAME OF OTHER RELIGIONS
Religion in the Real World

Hindus must deal with Christianity and Islam as they exist in the world today, not in an idealized mystical form that exists mainly in the minds of Hindus. Such real dialogue, however, can be difficult because the differences between religions that exist in the real world must be confronted. The facts that most Christians still feel a need to convert Hindus or that most Muslims feel that all Hindu image worship is unholy must be faced.

Hindus must realize how many millions of the members of these religions still think this way and will act upon their beliefs to the detriment of Hindus. Hindus should develop a dialogue with such groups to help change their views or to at least challenge their misperceptions. They can't pretend that they don't matter. It is not enough for Hindus to proclaim that Islam is one with Hinduism. The Islamic leaders - the Mullahs, Sheikhs, Muftis and Ayatollahs - must say it.

Let major Islamic leaders proclaim that Mohammed was not the last prophet and that recent Hindu gurus like Ramakrishna, Ramana Maharshi and Sri Aurobindo, were also prophets and perhaps even went beyond Mohammed. Then a real ground for synthesis might exist. It is not enough for Hindus to proclaim that Christianity and Hinduism to be one; Christian leaders must proclaim it. Let the Pope say that Rama and Krishna were also the son of God and that karma and rebirth are facts.
