    I noticed something strange about Hindu nationalists. These Hindu nationalists do not claim to be enlightened, yet they say with supreme confidence that koran or bible is rubbish and that Gita alone is good etc.

    Yet, strangely, enlightened masters like Raman Maharishi never said bad things about other religions. Funny, isn't it? Hindu nationalists, who openly admit they are not enlightened, are the supreme authority on religion, whereas Raman Maharishi is not.

    God save this country.

    Hindu nationalism is a political ideology that encompasses different groups. Broadly, these groups all define Indian culture and politics in terms of Hindu religious values. The Sangh Parivar, or “family of organisations” is a loose grouping of Hindu nationalists, which has its roots in the 19th century confrontation between colonial Europeans and Indians yearning for a national identity. Hindu nationalism developed as a way to form a specifically Indian national identity which stood against both the British colonisers and the Islamic dynasty that preceded it.

    If these Ramana Maharshis are not enlightening the Hindus..and moderating the psych...the islamic fanatics and christian fanatics will be screwed on the double by un enlightened Hindus.
    The enlightened Hindus you see is "Patience" in progress...and nothing else.
