This program captures the increasingly political nature of Hinduism and its volatile relationship with Islam-India's leading minority religion. It argues that this volatility results from their past history, when large parts of India were dominated by the Muslim rulers, the Mughals. Today, many Hindus demand greater recognition of Hinduism in governmental affairs and oppose what they feel is the favoring of Muslims and other minorities. In other words, Hindus call for a tougher form of Hinduism. But there are many religious beliefs in India: Sikh and Buddhist, Christian, and even atheist. Does this mean there is a contradiction between Hinduism as politics and Hinduism as faith?
