I was seeing some of her videos and reading her tweets.
I feel nothing she says has substance.
In fact she was even finding fault with Jesus in one tweet.

Its very common for anyone who is an ex christian or ex muslim or ex hindu to make videos of their former religion.

There are many such videos on you tube..even one Pakistani ex muslim joined ISCKON and makes videos against Islam.

When a person leaves his or her former religion....he or she does faces some guilt till they stabilize in their new religion.

So what does the Ego do to handle this?
It wont admit they are feeling guilty...so the Ego creates hatred for its former religion.

The intelligent person realizes that in this transition state the best thing to do is keep silent becos they would be causing damage to others by their views.

Esther is still in the transition stage..she might get some fans but its only sows seeds of intolerance.

One who leaves any religion should do so gracefully with sense and sensibility.

As for Esther she has faced 2 transitions..from Hinduism to Christianity and from Christianity to Hinduism again...will she go tru another transition to any other religion in the future?

HI RENUKA, Esther Dhanraj has done the right thing in reverting to the path that God chose for her at birth.

One who leaves any religion should do so gracefully with sense and sensibility? Nothing ungraceful about what she has done and she is being very sensible in exposing CHURCHIANITY for what it to tp warn her Hindu brethren against committing the same blunder

In the Proverbs of King Solomon in the Old Testament it is stated:

Trust in the Lord with all thine heart and lean not unto thy own understanding.
In all thy ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct ty paths. (3.5-6)

She left Hinduism, which God chose for her in His infinite wisdom, because she lost her "trust in the Lord" for sometime due to her ignorance and adopted Christianity by mistake. and having seen Christianity or rather CHURCHIANITY for what it is, has she not gained that lost trust and "acknowledged Him" in the process in reverting to Hinduism? In fact you should actually praise her for the very courageous step she has taken. According to you, her conversion to Christianity was right and her reverting to Hinduism was wrong and that she might commit the same error again. Going by your own logic then, her converting to Christianity was also a mistake. She definitely has done the right thing in reverting to her God-chosen path.

May be you are a born-again Christian yourself. If so, you too would do well to follow in her footstep.

She didnt convert to Christianity because of ignorance.
She was just a kid when her parents converted to Christianity.
I guess you havent seen her videos where she said how confused she was when her parents converted cos she being a brahmin still had all Hindu mantras in her mind and she felt guilty and scared that the mantras were still in her mind.

She reverted to Hinduism as an adult.
Frankly speaking that is her choice what she does about her Dharma but its always better to just revert without bad mouthing any religion.

Just type on you tube about Ex Hindus or Ex Muslims leaving their religion and they go ballistics on their former religion.
Honestly what good does it do?

Also to bring to your kind attention, no where in my post did I say her conversion to Christianity was right and her reverting to Hinduism is wrong.

No idea what gave you that impression or may be you might need to re read my post.

I guess may be you are not a Hindu?
Cos usually a Hindu doesnt accuse anyone of being a born again Christian sans evidence ..that amounts to Himsa( Violence).
May be you could consider reverting to Hinduism to experience Ahimsa.

Why should we bash any religion?
I agree forced conversion should be punished.
I have the freedom to choose my faith and that should be accorded to all.
Conversion is never needed.
No one is barred from practicing Hinduism. Only now Hindu Temples are banning people of other religions.
Even that is wrong. A non-Hindu who wants to visit and temple should be allowed. Here in my town (in the USA), we conduct a Temple tour for school students and answer all their questions. Our temple is open to all.

Rajiv Malhotra is selling his show to his audience that is pure commercialism. If he thought selling an interview of conversion to ISIS will bring him more fame and money, I am sure he will not hesitate to do so.

Exactly! His channels and host of " warriors" have become like a Zakir Naik channel where its all about potraying other religions negatively.

Instead of all this propaganda they can at least focus on Hindu teachings since some of his " intellectual kshatriyas" are actually well qualified in the field of Hinduism and one is very well versed in Vedas too.

But one thing I noted in some of these channels , they all the blame the current state of affairs on the invadors.

Though I agree invadors plundered India and affected it badly but why harp non stop on the past and not also make changes in mindset.

Not 100% of everything is the fault of invador, some are also fault in the society too..if we keep blaming others non stop how on earth would one introspect?

Japan was reduced to nothing once upon a time..total destruction.
Surely they remember Hiroshima Nagasaki incident but they rebuilt themselves..mindset changed too and they are one of the most advanced and disciplined nation in the world and very Zen in ethics.

I saw one Video from a different channel( not Rajiv Malhotra), where they were praising open defecation cos its enviromental friendly and blamed British for introducing toilets and made a manual scavenging caste!

But they forget that Mohenjadaro and Harappa had a flushing toilet system.

Some of this videos are really weird.
