Why is the word Hinduism not ‘Hindu’?

I am not sure if I would be able to get through to a Hindu, let alone a non-Hindu, in such a way.

I was asked the question at a seminar by a member of a student society.

In this context, I did not know that I was actually going to be asked a question on the subject of Hinduism.

He asked me why the word ‘Hindi’ was not mentioned in the dictionary.

I told him that Sanskrit was the official language of India, and the word “Hindu” is an English translation of Sanskrit, which was used in English from the 1600s.

Then, I said that I am a Hindu but I do not believe in Hinduism, as this is not my religion.

The lecturer then asked me to identify the source of the word Hindus, but I could not do so.

This is the kind of thing that is hard to say to a nonbeliever.

When I told the lecturer that I did know the word India, he said that he would not ask me anything else.

So, after a long period of silence, I asked him to clarify.

“Why is the term Hinduism different from Buddhism?” he asked.

After a pause, he answered: I am afraid that in my country there is a tendency to think that there are similarities between Buddhism and Hinduism and that it is very hard for anyone to come to an agreement.

Is this because Buddhism is considered an ideology?

Is this because Hinduism is considered a religion?

Or is it because there is an attempt to create a Hinduism in the minds of some people?

I asked him: Is there an attempt in some parts of the world to create Hinduism?

He told me that in India there is no attempt to do that.

What does the word HINDU mean in Hindi?

What is the difference between Hindus and Muslims?

How many different languages are there in the world?

Are there any similarities between Hinduism (India) and Islam?

Is there a similarity between Buddhism (India and Islam) and Hindu Buddhism (Pakistan)?

Are the similarities between Christianity and Hindu Christianity (India)?

What about Christianity and Islam (India, China)?

Are there any parallels between Christianity (England) and Islamic Christianity (Germany)?

How do Hindu and Muslim sects differ from each other?

Can I find a Hindu or Muslim scholar to debate my ideas?

I had asked this question at one of the seminars, and I was very happy to receive a response from someone who is familiar with the subject.

It was not the first time I had been asked the same question.

One of the most common questions that I received at the seminar was from a Muslim.

I have been asked this same question, but this time, I was able to answer it correctly, and it has a very important impact on my view on the existence of religions.

At the time, my own beliefs on the origin of religions were quite clear.

I thought that it was likely that Christianity was the original religion.

This was because Christianity has been the only religious system in the ancient world.

As a result, the Bible is considered the source book of the entire world.

This fact was confirmed by scholars in several places, such as in the New Testament.

My personal beliefs on this subject were clear and I did indeed accept that Christianity and other religions were created and developed in the time of Jesus.

However, as I came to realise that the history of religions in the past has been influenced by other religions, this also meant that my own views on the history and origins of religions would not be as clear.

On one of my recent trips to Pakistan, I met a Hindu who was very passionate about Islam.

She told me about how many Muslims in Pakistan had migrated from India in the 20th century.

But this did not mean that Islam and other non-Buddhist religions were not created in the Middle East.

A man who was in the middle of a discussion with a Muslim friend about the history, origins and influence of Christianity told me: We do not know anything about Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism or Islam.

It is a complete mystery to us.

I also received a similar question from a Christian friend, who said that while he does not consider himself a Christian, he did not want to go to the mosque because he thought it was a mosque of some sort.

We were discussing whether I should go to a mosque or not.

His friend explained that the mosque is not a Christian or Muslim building.

It belongs to a different religion.

The building has been built by a different community.

Our discussions on the origins of the religions in this world were not entirely fruitful, as our own beliefs are not quite the same as those of other religious
