THE DANGER OF HINDUS SPEAKING IN THE NAME OF OTHER RELIGIONS
If Hindus give up this naive synthetic approach, they will find it easier to communicate with people of different religious backgrounds. They will be able to create a real dialogue and debate over the issues in which differences can be really examined and transcended. Out of such real encounters, however tedious or painful, real change alone can come about, but it will have to be a reciprocal process and followed out by action.

The unity of religions will become possible only when missionary activity comes to an end, when the insistence on a particular church, holy book or prophet as final for all humanity ceases. Otherwise however pleasant a goal or an ideal it may be, it is an ignoring or falsification of what is actually going on. The removal of barriers between religions cannot occur without effort, struggle or resistance. It cannot make everyone happy or secure in his or her particular beliefs.

Dialogue in religion cannot be based upon making everyone right. Such a unity is only accommodation, and under accommodation always resides fear and falsehood, and division that will reassert itself when the need for accommodation, which is temporary, comes to an end.  Hindus should first learn their own religion and become able to articulate it even to those who are against it before they try to speak in the name of another religion as being the same as their own. In this regard most Hindus will first discover how little they really know about their own tradition.
