@sugumar,You are asking too much, probably a few like this owner of the blog might have the intellectual capacity and honesty to make changes.  Generally in the name of discipline the rigidity has got inbuilt into the system. fatwa where they expect adult driver to get breast feedback from woman for whom they have to be drivers.    It is the urgency to comply to the laws rather than remove irrationality.Coming back to hinduism, it has two aspect one being the ritualistic and another is philsophicial.  Unfortuantely the philsophical part was with the few who practiced the spirit of the same.   If world has communism, the first communist was ramanaju who agains the commands of his teacher went up the temple gopuram to give away the divya mantra and sarana sloka irrespective of caste, creed and religion.In every religion, the corrupt tries to twist the teaching of the master for the convenience to usrup power and that has happened in hinduism also.  The same was removed by law sixty years ago.

Mr Sugumar says, ".In Hinduism no single Book holds supreme."

Circuitous defense of religions is not necessary. Our religions are what they are.

He adds, " Similarly  in Quran verses wich contains words such  as  kafir and Jahad should be made obsolete. These two words  are  backbone  of terrorism indulged in by Muslims.

Many Muslims have written that the word "kafir" should be made obsolete. Muslims use the word "Jehad" mostly in the sense of satyagraha. It is simplistic as well as untrue to say that these two words are the backbone of terrorism. Terrorism has geo-political causality, even if terrorists have religious pretensions.

The  Mohamedan description   of Heaven is highly absurd. The Islamic Scholars should declare  verses dealing with-  Heaven -perennially virgin 72  Holistic women, 100 fold sexual Power-   obsolete.I request some articles on that if my opinion is wrong.

I has reference to  Ghulam Mohideen Letter.In Hinduism no single Book holds supreme as is Koran- Hadis-sunnah. Rig,Yayur,Sama and Atharvana Vedas  has little things to Modern Hindus.They are almost obsolete.They are going back. True to the nature and tradition of Hindustan,Hinduism is of the opinion that  as  the God/Allah is without beginning and without end, the vedas or any document dealing with God must contain infinite pages.If anything not acceptable to a Hindu mind  in  a religious Book, A Hindu can delete /discard that and seek something  better. Hinduism is not dependent on any single Book.It"s stock room or library is open  to future additions.That is why Hindustan teems with  lot  of religious Literature. efforts are on since time immorial to eradicateuntouchability which is the child of  words such as " Suthra, Melecha, sandala ".Thousands of Religious Luminaries have been condemning untouchability.Hence the words Suthra etc. are almost obsolete and none dare to use that word.I as  a stout Hindu accept that words such as Suthra,Melacha, Sandala should be banned if it is not banned  and use of such words should be made  punishable offence.In Tamilnadu  E.V.Ramasami  has burnt  copies of  " Manu Simiruthi" which  contain several verses which promotes untoruchability.

Similarly  in Quran verses wich contains words such  as  kafir and Jahad should be made obsolete.

These two words  are  backbone  of terrorism indulged in by Muslims. I appreciate the author of the article for his outright acceptance  and exposing where the shoe pinges.

Satwa Gunam says, "Come to the current realities and laws."

And what is the current reality of the despicable caste system and untouchability today? Hate pracharaks like you should be ready to answer these questions.

@ghulamCome to the current realities and laws.  Please compare objectively and not for my sake. Worldwide Muslim are killed by their own sectoral violence more than attack by any other community due to tribal division.   India has set of problem due to caste, however i donot think so it has graduate to the level of Muslims worldwide. Correct steps have already been initiated by law and the perculation in city is high.  Of course rural areas require more thrust which will happen over a period of time. Where does it stand with regard to the corrective mechanism in Islam ?

Satwa Gunam says, "Unfortunate is that you are equating the hindu dharam to narrow islamic dharma."

You are the one who is here making those comparisons! Only small minds make such meaningless comparisons.

He adds, "Hinduism has not called any body as kafir."

It has called people dalits, untouchables and melecchhas. But that will not make me conduct any campaign of hate against Hinduism.

@ghulam, Precisely that is the reason there are Hindus who are fighting the radical truly following Gita. Porbably in your eyes,  might not be one but there are people who are better than me in ur perception who fight for right
4/15/2011 11:39:43 PM satwa gunam
@ghulam Unfortunate is that you are equating the hindu dharam to narrow islamic dharma. Hinduism has not called any body as kafir. Further it states that all paths leads to one supreme god.  Hindu does not have any problem going to haji ali or ajmer dharghah or velakani or badra church. That is the reason you could see that hinduism has not manufacture so many jihadis as credited by muslim in india and worldwide.There is no law in any country which is banning building of temples and iskon is one which is made and run by completely foreigner to india.  Hinduism does not have constituted violent jihadis for its protection like Islam.
4/15/2011 2:05:50 PM Ghulam Mohiyuddin

Satwa Gunam says, "Gita was taught in the war field where the almighty told to kill anybody who is not doing the dharm irrespective of their relation and stature. Precisely what I am doing."

That makes you a "jehadi". And since I condemn all "jehadis", I have to condemn you too. All "jehadis" are ignorant of their own religions, so how can they know the religions of others? Your presumptuousness is despicable.
