There a lot of different religions or schools of thought in “Hinduism”, especially regional differences, despite a common theme.

Do you think that the term adds to confusion?

What philosophical school do you personally follow, if any?
What form if Hinduism do you follow?
Do you follow things like iconography, or do you subscribe to the Vivekananda school of iconography and ritual being the bad aspects of Hinduism?

Well, gay is somethings thats not considered against the religion. Hindus believe that only God has the right to judge anyone. They are also God;s creations and we respect them greatly

Thats absolutely wrong.
Being a Hindu isnt the same as being islamophobic
not all hindus have dislike for islams
both have contrasting beliefs
and thats doesnt mean to have conflict

Solving this would be much easier if those conflicting people from both religion accept the contrasting beliefs
personally, minding your own faith only would solve many issues arising regarding this

Yes i am. Often faced with allegations that are absolutely senseless. They read on the surface and speak as if they know all. I’m from India, your neighbour county!
