Somelearned Hindus are very keen to rewrite the history of India to prove thatAryans belonged to India and never migrated from the West or central Asia andthat Vedas originated from the soil of India. In the process Hindu society andits most ancient and eternal religion <Istyle="mso-bidi-font-style: normal">Sanatan Dharma</I> is getting wary of criticism, being not sure of itself. Lately religious fanaticism is taking rootsas many priests, gurus, cults leaders and others explain morality, spirituality,divinity, religious ethics and metaphysics in their own way, leading to infinite
