THE DANGER OF HINDUS SPEAKING IN THE NAME OF OTHER RELIGIONS
Of course a Hindu influence can be found in many religions. As the oldest religion and the main surviving ancient type of religions such as once dominated the world, Western religions arose out of a Hindu-like background, though rejecting more than affirming it. The pre-Christian beliefs of Europe and the pre-Islamic religion of Arabia, with their different deities and temple worship resemble Hinduism.

Not surprisingly, most Christians and Muslims identify Hinduism with the same old paganism and idolatry that the founders of their religions sought to eradicate. It is true that some Christian and Islamic mystics with their insistence upon Divine Oneness and communion with God can resemble Vedanta. But such an influence is hardly the main force behind these religions that have developed along different lines.

Christians and Muslims in general are happy with their religions as they are and don't want them combined with Hinduism, which they associate with superstition and polytheism. They regard Hindu ideas of karma and rebirth as unacceptable, heretical and sometimes even as ridiculous.
