Thoughts on economics and liberty

Much of Hinduism is an imported religion, just like Islam or Christianity

I think this point needs to be made clear, based on the analysis I outlined earlier today.

The Hindutva argument – already hopeless from all angles – falls flat on its face because "Hinduism" (as perceived by these people) is  not a domestic but a FOREIGN religion which continues in a distorted form inside India. (Not that I have any issues with religions merely because of the source of their origin – I oppose all religion, without exception.)

The only difference is that it was imported a long time ago, unlike other religions like Islam and Christianity, which came much later.

The only genuine Hindus are those who are skeptics and agnostics. That was an innovation in philosophy strictly indigenous to India.

    Basically, Hinduism itself is not a religion. There’s no book from Vedas, Geeta or Ramayan refers to Hinduism. All these books refer to Sanatan Dharma, and the teachings mentioned in these books is never followed by any of Hindus. Hinduism is an idealogy to politically gain control of the region in the name of religion. Since Sanatan Dharma has fixed definition and can’t unite the masses, while Hinduism has no fixed definition, has no particular book to stick and its very flexible to any extent. Hindutva is merely a fairy tale dream envisioned by the faithless fanatics for their personal gains. On the other hand Islam is shown as a big monster even by the western media in the name of several infamous organizations world wide. That also helping as ready material in their cause for the right wing fanatics.
