Hinduism , the religion of nearly one billion people mostly of South Asian provenance or descent, is notoriously difficult to define or even to describe with accuracy and comprehensiveness. Like all complex and ancient religious traditions, it is problematic to speak about Hinduism as if it were one monolithic religion rather than merely a label for many different traditions. The conglomeration of religious traditions sheltered under this umbrella incorporates a bewildering array of texts, beliefs, practices, and sects—so disparate a collection that some modern scholars have questioned the legitimacy of artificially unifying them.
According to these scholars, one cannot really speak about a single Hinduism but at best only a variety of Hinduisms. Defining Hinduism The word Hinduism itself derives from one of the principal rivers of South Asia, the Indus, and was probably first used by the ancient Persians to designate the people and territory of the northwestern portion of the subcontinent.
As a name for a religion at first inclusive of what is now differentiated as Hinduism, Jainism, and Buddhism , it probably owes its origin to the Muslim invaders of the early part of the second millennium c. Diversity—historical, cultural, linguistic, doctrinal, and sectarian—is descriptive of all world religions also designated by a unitary label, including Christianity , Judaism , Buddhism, and Islam.
Hinduism may be an extreme example, but it is hardly unique in this regard. And as is true in other religions, in Hinduism conceptual unity can be identified within this diversity. Some scholars have identified a set of key concepts or beliefs they regard as distinctively Hindu, including the beliefs in karma and rebirth; the impermanent and fundamentally suffering nature of the world samsara ; and the possibility of liberation from suffering and rebirth and the attainment of a permanent state of bliss moksha.
None of these beliefs, however, belongs exclusively to Hinduism. Buddhism, Jainism, and other “non-Hindu” Indian religions also hold these doctrines.
Most Interesting Facts About Hinduism You Probably Don’t Know
Yes, India is plagued by a plethora of challenges today — corruption, fundamentalism, terrorism, conversions, moral degradation, lack of education, health issues, sanitation problems and so many more. But despite all these problems and threats, the top two — by a wide margin — would remain casteism and gender discrimination. And till these two problems — that remain the primary causes of almost all our miseries of past and present — are eradicated from root, the hope of a glorious future would remain nothing more than hallucinations of an insane.
In other words, a prosperous and powerful society cannot co-exist with casteism and gender-discrimination. Please note that casteism and gender-discrimination are not specifically Hindu issues. On contrary, they are more of cultural issues.

Then there was neither death nor immortality nor was there then the torch of night and day. The One breathed windlessly and self-sustaining. There was that One then, and there was no other. At first there was only darkness wrapped in darkness. All this was only unillumined cosmic water. That One which came to be, enclosed in nothing, arose at last, born of the power of heat. In the beginning desire descended on it – that was the primal seed, born of the mind. The sages who have searched their hearts with wisdom know that which is kin to that which is not.

You can read the original article at http: There are indeed names of several historical persons in Vedas. But that does not mean that Vedas prophesise those people. It only means that those words were popular and people chose to adopt these names. By that logic, Bible prophesises about all people born with name George and Islamic texts about people named Muhammad, Ali etc!
On contrary, we shall prove that even if we assume Vedas to contain prophecies, that can no way be associated with Prophet Muhammad pbuh , unless IRF believes that Prophet Muhammad pbuh was a mass murderer and protector of cows, as we shall see later. And if indeed they believe so, let them issue a world-wide fatwa to start donating cows, stop eating beef and admitting that Prophet Muhammad pbuh killed the entire population of Mecca!
