It is generally commented that Hinduism does not force anyone to practice it and accepts people of all faiths unlike many other religions. How far is this true? Are there any scriptures which profess otherwise?

    @Arkaprabha Even comments are not for what you did. You almost answered the question. Anything which answers a question should go into answer field and not comments. Comments are only for clarification and suggesting improvement. What you did was answering. Comments shouldn't be used for posting unsourced answers. – Sarvabhouma Jun 27 '18 at 17:35

    @Sarvabhouma See Way to convert an answer to a comment?. Unsourced answers can be converted to comments if they are useful. Indeed, our policy for deleting unsourced answers use this feature. – The Destroyer Jun 27 '18 at 17:43

    @Sarvabhouma "That conversion should be made by mods if the answer doesn't meet quality standards". This is same as posting answer when they are not sure of sources. It just doesn't involve Mods and result is same anyway. And you may have different views on this but that shouldn't affect users who are not sure of sources . But in any case it has advantage. Other users can provide sources for user who posted comments and i have myself done the same many times when i saw such comments. – The Destroyer Jun 27 '18 at 18:06

    @The That's why I don't like it. This encourages answering in comments. There are many disadvantages in this. One user just posts unsourced answer and another posts a sourced one later looking at or not looking at comments. Now users start saying 2nd stole the answer even they didn't. They blame user and that becomes situation bad. 2. Wrong comments can't be corrected. Trying to do that increases noise in the comment section and discussion happens which is against basic rule of SE. Basics shouldn't be damaged. They can't be dv , edited and not indexed in search. Long list. – Sarvabhouma Jun 27 '18 at 18:16
