In its over all influenced on India, Hinduism has been an instrument for good. Do you agree or disagree with the statement. Present at least one argument in support of your OPINION.


Starting by agreeing or disagreeing that Hinduism has been an instrument for good wouldn’t be a good idea. Along the way I might over look some major details on this subject. Usually in an essay in which a Student is asked to give his opinion, most of the time the student should give is opinion in the introduction, then prove his point in the following paragraphs. I choose in this essay to mention every single good aspect of the Hinduism life and every bad aspect as well. I chose to do so because by the time I get to my conclusion everything will be clear not only for me but also for my reader, they will be able to understand and try to see things from my point of view.


Hinduism has influence India but also the rest of the world, many times and many different ways. Like the proverb say “God is one but a wise man call him by different name”. Hindus believe in one God that has been divided into different spirits, such has, Shiva the destroyer. This belief has even been passed on to African countries such as the practice of Voodoo, one God different spirits for different aspect of the world.


Hinduism is one of the world’s major religions. It is also one of the most ancient religions in the world. There are over 720 million Hindus today. Most live in India, although a major of the population lives in Nepal, Mauritius, Fiji, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Guyana, Indonesia and a few other countries.


The ancient sages of India who discovered the spiritual truths that constitute the basic scriptures of Hinduism preferred to remain anonymous. Therefore, Hinduism does not have a known founder. Those scriptures are called the Vedas, which means knowledge. Hindu have what people call a caste system in a sense its racist in a other it help people not think about how another one is better then them and its racist because it classify people by saying that they could never go higher just lower and in society today it doesn’t work that way at least we try not to let so happened. There’s also the place were it helps people to be into life and other people not just into themselves and also by being happy at someone else’s defeat.


In conclusion Hinduism has been a instrument for good and also an instrument for bad.
