THE IMPORTANCE OF KSHATRIYA DHARMA
However, Hinduism is a pluralistic religion quite unlike exclusive monotheistic religions that can easily create a fundamentalism of One God, One Savior and One Book. There is no history of Hindu Jihad, nor of any Hindu terrorist activity comparable to that of many Islamic groups. There is similarly no comparable Hindu missionary aggression as that of the Christians. The fear of Hindu militancy is more a fear of Hindu activism by groups that profit from a lack of Hindu political activity, mainly leftist and communist groups in India.

On the contrary, it is communist youth gangs who attack Hindu sadhus in Bengal, and it is Hindu workers who are murdered in Kerala under a communist - dominated state governments. There clearly is a point between Hindu passivity that has no political activity, and an imagined fascist Hindu militancy that has probably never existed. There obviously can be a Hindu activism that is Dharmic but does not go the extreme of a militant fundamentalism.

The idea that Hindu activism has to be avoided so as to prevent Hindu militancy, is like saying a person who has been beat up should not be allowed to stand up on his feet again because he is likely to become an aggressor like the person who trampled him down in the first place. Only Hindus seem to be willing to accept this politics of masochism. But they should at least recognize that no other group in the world does, nor did Hindus in classical India.
