pramod kumar's rebuttal of ARUN SHOURIE's book on Vijayvaani

i haven't read this, but pramod is a thoughtful person, and his views are worth considering. i have great respect for arun shourie, of course, so it will be interesting to see how he erred (if he erred, that is).

Subject: My rebuttal of ARUN SHOURIE's book on Vijayvaani
To:


Namaste!

In his recent book 'Does He Know a Mother's Heart?' Arun Shourie
discusses how religions deal with the question of  human suffering.

In the chapters on Hinduism, Shourie criticizes the karma theory,
attributes a wrong understanding of mayavada to Adi Sankara and mocks
at Ramakrishna Paramahamsa and other Hindu saints.

In this article, I have attempted a detailed rebuttal of his central
arguments against Hinduism. Considering the general relevance and
importance of this topic to all of us, I request you to read and
respond to the article and also circulate it amongst your circle of
friends:

Excerpt:

"It is appalling and unfortunate that leaders who espouse 'Hindutva'
in public life have such a poor understanding of their own faith and
philosophy...Leaders who espouse Hindutva must understand Hinduism
properly first. They are supposed to be the Hindu elite – who will
teach them?"
