“Why amongst the poor of India so many are Mohammedans? It is nonsense to say, they were converted by the sword. It was to gain their liberty from the . . . zemindars and from the . . . priest, and as a consequence you find in Bengal there are more Mohammedans than Hindus amongst the cultivators, because there were so many zemindars there. Who thinks of raising these sunken downtrodden millions?”
Special thanks to the following for finding the quote:
Many Christians claim that they believe in their religion and their doctrines because of spiritual experiences, and that I have not experienced the “Holy spirit” or “God”, therefore I can never be a christian and rightly guided
Many Hindus claim the same thing. How can an objective believer and truth-seeker account for a christian experience and discount a Hindu who per-say has experienced Ganesha or Vishnu or Krishna., or something to that effect? What makes your spiritual experience true, and theirs false? Moreover should a christian himself/herself rely on their spiritual experiences?
As I mentioned in a previous post , we can not rely on spiritual experiences to base our belief in a religion, but rather on logic and reasoning.
