if you can say that Abrahamic religions are the cause of wars then hinduism should be seen as the cause of India’s ancient wars; plus add in statistical analysis of the number of hindu’s vs. Abrahamic religions numbers and you can get a proportionate value that may make it seem more endemic to humans not religions. Namaste
That is truly a very silly argument lol
Look Hinduism does not tell you to go around killing non believers, in fact it does not tell you to war either, for ahimsa is one of the cardinal principles of Hinduism. Non-violence is an ideal that has always been preferable to Hindus, violence should only be used as a last resort and even then it must be measured and ethical.
There is no history of genocide, inquisitions, colonialism or witch burning in Hindu history. To Hindus this is demonic.
Abrahamic religions do in fact tell you to go around killing non believers or convert them. Abrahamic religions do in fact have clergies that officially ordain actions like genocide, inquisitions, witch burning.
Hinduism has no clergy. It is a religion that teaches self-development through knowledge and techniques and leaves the decision of how one wants to practice religion up to the individual. It gives you freedom to choose your own deities, your own means of worship, your own philosophies and your own goals in life. As it is not an organized religion it does not impose any dogma on you. There is no compulsion to attend any temples, read any scripture or do anything. You can do whatever you like, so as long you know there are consequences to your actions.
Hinduism is famous for its pluralism and its tolerance. Abrahamic religions are not.
