Violence is part of Hinduism as long as it is based on dharma..
Hinduism never believed in absolute non-violence..
Violence is clearly advocated on anti-social elements, enemies of a
nation, rebels, and violence is a genuine way for a person to save his
But hinduism never had the barbaric violence similar to the kind of
Jihad (cutting throat in iraq) or the Inquisitions of christianity..
Please read the book "The Goa Inquisition" on how a person is brutally
tortured even for the minor suspicion that he may not worship jesus..
It is the Buddha in ancient times and gandhi in modern times, who
introduced absolute non-violence, and even preached self-destruction
over fighting back..
In Many of the cases, violence is far better than cunningness and
cowardice.. i would prefer a friend who could slap me directly on a
face, than to betray me at the back..
Also I do not agree with the following lines..
/** Nowhere has such an effective and self-regulative system ever been
devised. It is this feature of the system that has seemingly governed
Indian history for over two millenia.
it has no substantiation to say that this system governed india for
over two millenia..
Many of the researches has proved, that there was both upward and
downward movement of caste before britishers.. for eg, shivaji was a
shudra king, chandragupta was vysya king.. i heard that hoysalas in
karnataka was brahmin kings..
