Why Hinduism is Terrorism

A religion is terrorism when it demands, as a religious duty, to exterminate the unbeliever/s, as their presence is irreligious. And Bhagavad-gita, the holy scripture of Hinduism, demands such extermination. Bhagavad-gita, also known as Gitopanisad, is the essence of Vedic knowledge and one of the most important Upanisads in Vedic literature. 'It is the conversation between Krishna, who is God in human form come to guide and protect the righteous, and Arjuna, who is the rest of us in human form, confused about what the right course of action in life is and sickened by the horror we see in the world around us.' (See Linda Johnsen, The complete idiot's guide to Hinduism. Penguin Group: 2002) Krishna advises Arjuna to fight in the battlefield for he, Arjuna, is Ksatriya. Krishna tells Arjuna that his enemy is considered to be irreligious, and, being one from the Ksatriya (i.e. warrior) cast, it is his religious duty to fight and protect his religion. Also, through the verses 7 and 8 in Chapter 4 of Bhagavad-gita, Krishna makes it clear that whenever and wherever there is a decline in religious practice and a predominant rise of irreligion - at that time He descends Himself. To deliver the pious and to annihilate the miscreants, as well as to reestablish the principles of religion, He Himself appears, millennium after millennium. (See 'Bhagavad-gita as it is' by A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. The Bhaktivedatna Book Trust: 2003). This implies that the message of Bhagavad-gita is to fight, if necessary with violent means, for the protection of the religion, say Hinduism; to annihilate those whose beliefs and practices are other than Hinduism, which would include atheists, free thinkers, other religious people like Christians, Muslims, Jews, etc. That is why Hinduism is terrorism.
