WashingtonIn a new survey by American think-tank ‘Pew’, most people say that it is very important to respect all religions to be a ‘true Indian’. “Indians are united in the view that respecting other religions is a very important part of being a member of their own religious community,” the survey said. But he does not consider inter-religious marriages to be right.
The survey also found that Hindus see their religious identity and Indian national identity closely intertwined. Nearly two-thirds of Hindus (64%) say that being a Hindu is very important to be a true Indian. A third (32 per cent) of Christians in India (along with 81 per cent of Hindus) say they believe in the holy power of the river Ganges. In India, not only do a majority of Hindus (77 per cent) believe in Karma, but a similar percentage of Muslims do too.
“BJP’s appeal is more among Hindus”
The Pew Research Center said, “The Bharatiya Janata Party’s appeal is greater among Hindus who associate their religious identity and Hindi language with being a true Indian. In the 2019 national elections, 60 percent of Hindu voters who think a true Indian Being Hindu and speaking Hindi is so important, he voted for the BJP compared to a third of Hindu voters who feel less strongly about both these aspects of national identity.”
Pew surveyed 30,000 Indians based on face-to-face interviews of adults in 17 languages between the end of 2019 and the beginning of 2020 (before the Covid pandemic). It found that Indians of all religious backgrounds are said to be free to practice their religions.
