Hindus are truely secular because 5000 years old Veda the highest authority of Hinduism says
The whole world is one family
Look at the world with friendly
eyes Live and let live
Let everybody be happy in this world.
There are many such dictums in Veda and Upanishad. Hence since thousands of years Hindus have respect for all religions ‘Sarvdharm Sambhav’.
According to Gandhiji Hinduism is the mother of all religions. It respects Ram and Rahim both, hence its aim is to spread goodwill and harmony between all religions since thousands of years instead of ill will through its great men like Buddha, Mahavir, Gandhi and others. No other religion in the world has been able to do it. Gandhi ji was universal because he was a Hindu.
Hindus have welcomed in India religious refugees from abroad like Jews and others because Hindus believe in ‘No enemy, stranger none we are at peace with everyone. After independence, Hindus have made Muslims as presidents, Governors, Chief Ministers, and Chief Justices and all their demands have been fulfilled. Hence Shri L.K.Advani once said that ‘India is secular because it is Hindu’.
Some opinions –
Gandhiji: – I am a Hindu because it is Hinduism which makes the world worth living I am a Hindu hence I love not only human beings but all living beings (Young India 1.12.26)
Lord Willingdon – All Indians (Hindus) are the most noble and modest people on earth as if it is their racial quality. Hindus repay every just and fair act and never neglect any duty of kindness and sympathy.
English Poet Samuel Johnson – Hindus are religious, cheerful, Justice loving, truthful, and grateful and God loving.
Historian Abul Fazal – Hindus are sympathetic and merciful towards all. They have no malice towards anybody in this world.
Yahudi Memudin (world famous violinist) – A Hindu is hundred times more refined more cultured, more honest, more religious and more balanced in his outlook than the average westerner.
Swami Vivekananda – In a just comparison the Hindus with all their faults will be found above all other religions in the world as a moral community. There are many such opinions. Hence Hindus should not suffer from inferiority complex if cunning pseudo-secular politicians try to downgrade them for their petty political ends.
It is Hindutva which has removed poverty, corruption and terrorism from Gujarat. It is a philosophy which will strengthen the foundation of India.
Hence there will be all round peace and prosperity in the country if there is Hindutvadi Prime Minister instead of some pseudo-secular leader who uses ‘divide and rule policy’ and spread religious hatred in order to create his vote bank.
