JAIN INTELLECTUAL RESPONSE TO CHRISLAMIST INFLUENCE: CONTRIBUTION TO HINDU INTELLECTUAL RESISTANCE
Blog 2-Jain intellectuals from medieval times to the present, their arguments against moorti repudiation, and review of some Jain Indologists: In the last blog, we studied the background of Jain suffering against Islam, in the broader picture of Hindu suffering. In this second blog of the series, we shall be studying Jain intellectual responses to the intra-Jain debate: whether or not to worship (Jain) moortis, which line of argument then became available in the colonial era, to provide a template to counter even Christian propaganda against Indic faiths.
