“Hinduism” Isn’t Tolerant – “People” Are!

I’m tired of hearing about how “tolerant” Hinduism is compared to the dirty evil Abrahamic religions. But remember one thing – a religion itself means nothing. Christianity for example, has Jesus – the most tolerant, peace loving, pacifist hippy imaginable. He tells people to “turn the other cheek” when someone slaps you! And yet there were the crusades, the inquisitions, wars etc by perfectly devout Christians.

The same goes for Hinduism. Stop saying that “Hinduism is tolerant”. It means nothing – squat. Tolerance and peace are defined each and every day by the actions of people. And we all know the worth of actions viz a viz the worth of words.
