THE DANGER OF HINDUS SPEAKING IN THE NAME OF OTHER RELIGIONS
Such statements reflect to those who really know these different religions that Hindus have not studied them in depth but are hastily remaking other religions in a Hindu image. This may make Hindus feel better about other religions but so far it has not had much of an effect on how these religions relate to Hinduism, which generally remains negative. Nor does it prepare Hindus to deal with their proselytizing efforts.

When Hindus speak in the name of other religions they are in danger of appearing not only misinformed and naive, but arrogant. How can a Hindu who has never really practiced Christianity or Islam, or studied their teachings under a traditional teacher, be capable of speaking in the name of the religion? How can such a superficially informed Hindu justify his claims to mainstream Christian or Islamic leaders that their religions must also teach karma, rebirth, Yoga and Self-realization.

How can Hindus expect Christians or Muslims to believe that their own religious leaders through history have misunderstood their religion and that a modern Hindu knows better what the religion was originally intended to be, particularly when Hindus portray original Christianity or Islam as closer to Hinduism than to their religion as history has known it? When a Hindu tells a Muslim or a Christian that their religion was originally Yoga or Vedanta, it appear condescendings, an attempt to impose a Hindu point of view on them, not an effort at communication.
