KUNDAKHUNTHI, India — Hinduism, the largest religious group in India, is facing a growing threat, but the community’s central government is taking a different approach to combat its growing power and influence.
As the government prepares to host the world’s largest Hindu pilgrimage, its chief minister is using his office to push the religious community to take a more positive and inclusive approach to the world.
Karnataka Chief Secretary Suresh Chandra Prasad said on Monday that while he is proud of the diversity of his people, there is still much to do.
The country is more open to diversity than ever before, he said.
“We have a lot of people from different religions, and it has always been that way.
But we need to do a better job,” Prasads office said in a statement.
It also said the government will set up a commission on Hinduism in the next four years.
It said that the government wants to bring Hindus closer to their communities, which are not part of any religion.
The religious community has seen a surge in influence and power in recent decades, particularly after its revival in the 1980s.
It has taken on more powerful roles in politics, with its leaders leading the government in the past two elections.
It has been the subject of a spate of communal violence, and has been called the most powerful political force in India.
The Indian media has been rife with articles, with many blaming its leaders for the violence.
India is the world leader in Hinduism and has the largest Hindu population, but there has been little discussion on how to address the growing influence of Hinduism.
