    Regarding other religions

    namaste,

    This is for the new members but also the regulars of HDF. I have noticed lately that there is a lot of discussion/posts about non hindu religions on this forum. While it is good to have discussions about other religinos since we have forums for that on HDF, it is not good to simply mock them, especially when there is no one around from the other religion to defend it.

    Let's take care that we don't turn HDF into a place that simply mocks other religions for the sake of it. Let's focus on Hinduism, the main purpose of this forum.

    Thank you.

    I agree with this.

    I think if one really disagrees with a religion the best practice is to focus on philosophical inconsistencies.

    I agree.

    Sanatana Dharma is about embracing the truths of other religions. It would be poor form to mock them.

    Namaste.

    Namaste Satayji,

    I have also noticed that as of late, and I've found myself contributing to a lot of those discussions. While it's necessary to discuss other religions especially Christianity as it pertains to being a threat to Hinduism and India, as well as any philosophical differences or similarities that lead to a fruitful discussion, I agree that we shouldn't just bash other religions just for the sake of it.

    Jai Sri Ram

    I suppose I have been venting a bit too much too. Will keep this in mind.

    Hear, hear! Less pointless arguments, more focus on Sanatana Dharma, please.
