Dr Naik: “‘ Hindu’ is actually a Persian word that stands for the inhabitants of the region beyond the Indus Valley. However, in common parlance,Hinduism is a blanket term for an assortment of religious beliefs, most of which are(which is)based on the Vedas, the Upanishads and the BhagavadGita. “(as final authority and Upanishads and Geeta as other guiding texts)
(Even Upanishads and Mahabharat claim Vedas to be the Supremeauthority and clearly state that all other texts including Purans areto be interpreted in lines with Vedas. This is important because,what IRF will do is to twist and try to manipulate the meaning of verses to suite there own agenda of proving Muhammad left, right and center!)
