Re: Hinduism meets Internet
- Not very much different but in consonance with the Hinduism ideology, in TOI of 28.01.2013 has appeared a very good article titled "India's Feudal Democracy" by Justice Markandey Katju, retied Supreme Court Judge and presently Chairman of Press Council of India. I advise Members to read this article. I am unable to attach a copy of the same here.The article speaks about how the Democracy in India is being eroded just because of the religious fundamentalist approach to secure power. And, how it is damaging the Hinduism.G C Mathur

Hinduism meets Internet
Vinay Lal has in his article "When Hinduism Meets the Internet" in STOI 20.01.13 has very well put in perspective the Hinduism, different from Hindutva, and aligned it well with the modernity in Internet use of the youth in 'Hindu System of Life', and that is what makes Hinduism progressive and different from all others e.g. Christianity and Islam. While Islam needs sword/weapons and terrorism for its spread, Hinduism is carrying the conviction of faith and belief - of course, not in its rituals. This is what has attracted me to the Hinduism sans rituals, for its inclusive democratic message of love for all. In fact, the article is very in consonance with the ideology of secularism followed by the Indian National Congress. The Hindus in the Congress are the best representatives of Hinduism in contrary to those following the ideology of Hindutva.
