“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.
