Jaishree Gopal

It is very important for all Indians to get involved in social reform movement of all kinds, and especially think of caste and gender issues in Hinduism without being defensive or apologetic, with an eye to reform rather than justify the current exclusive practices.

Namasthe Jaishree: What you wrote is very true.

Every religion and every culture has the GOOD, the BAD and UGLY aspects in it and dwell on the negative aspects do not make any sense.

At the same time, we have to do everything in our power to eradicate BAD and UGLY aspects where ever we find them.

The very best aspect of Hinduism is

"ABOSULTE FREEDOM OF THOUGHTS AND ACTIONS."

Voltaire in Essay on Tolerance wrote: "I may disagree with what you say, but I will defend to the death, your right to say it. "Hinduism is the symbolic representation of what Voltaire wrote.
