Reader comment on item: [The Issue of Compulsion in Religion:] Islam is What Its Followers Make of It
in response to reader comment: Absurd Hinduism (Indian Paganism)

Submitted by Tarak (India), Jun 22, 2010 at 13:45

Hi Pamodha,
If you do not understand Hinduism, I guess you have no right to talk about it. Hinduism is not just a religion but a way of life. Hinduism associates everything with Dharma. It goes like this Dhramecha, Arthecha , Kaamecha , Mokshecha. It balances every human life. You can do anything but do not deviate from Dharma. Earn Money but not deviate from Dharma, Have sex but do not deviate from Dharma ( wonder what it is!! It simply says that Have Sex with your wife only) and I guess that is not wrong. And with all of this you attain Moksha. And regarding wrong morals in Ramayana and Mahabharatha (as you think them). Tell me what you feel is wrong and I would prove it to you that it is right. And there is nothing in Hinduism like sacrifices. It was just a wrong reason in the name of God to kill animals. Tell me one Veda or Scriptures which justifies sacrifices. Caste System is just a false practice of those who do not understand Hinduism properly. So, blame hindus but not Hinduism for not understanding it.
