My Own Sort of Hindu
“What is wrong with faith?” an angry gent asked me recently. He was not a knickerwallah but a soft-spoken air force officer. He argued with some passion that this magazine’s criticism of the Allahabad High Court judgement amounted to a rejection of faith. The officer explained he respected every community’s right to their belief; therefore, those other communities should respect the Hindu’s right to belief. He then asked me if I was a practising Hindu. I dodged the question.
