About the Book :

Hindu Response to Religious Pluralism

It is often claimed that Hinduism is the most tolerant of all religions and Hindu tolerance is the best answer in fostering peace and harmony in a multi-religious society. The author examines this claim and shows that all the possible responses to religious pluralism are found in Hinduism also. Based on the study of the Ancient Indian tradition of selected Sacred texts of the Hindus - Rigveda, Gita, etc. and three modern Hindu thinkers - Swami Vivekananda, Swami Dayananda & Mahatama Gandhi, the author establishes that from the very beginning there existed simultaneously diverse response to religious pluralism, not all of them tolerant.
