    1.Anybody can enter a mosque if he is clean, decently attired and bare feet. Only Muslims enter to pray.

    2. Mosque is not to be confused with a temple. A mosque is designed not only for congregational prayers but also for other social functions/discussions. For instance, the religious formality of a wedding is preferred to be performed here. In the early days of Islam, the Caliph used to perform his work of governance mostly from a mosque.

    3. I know why you mention the Ahmadyas. They are not Muslims. They have their own place of worship. They cannot go for Hajj. GOI has allowed them to hold their own equivalent of Hajj at Qadyian which they have named "Al Aqsa al Mashriq".

    My question was simple. Are ahmadiyas allowed to enter in all mosques, which ever they want. Some members here said nonmuslims are allowed in mosques and you are saying Ahmadiyas are nonmuslims. So, by this logic, they should be allowed entry into mosques.

    A temple should not be confused with a mosque. Unlike any religion, in Hindu temples, we do Pranprathistha i.e. we hindus believe that god actually comes and resides in the deity. So, its purity is of utmost importance.

    Now, the topic of this debate is non-hindus entry into hindu temples. You said ahmadiyas have their own places of worship. So, are all non-hindus.

    See, it is very easy to come and find fault with others, but it will always be advisable to first look inside and see if you yourself need to put your own house in order before pointing fingers at others.

    So, the temples in questions are also few exceptions. There are thousands of Hindu temples open for all.

    What is dogmatic about it? Pray tell me. Kindly tell me how non Hindus have a natural right of entry into Hindu temples? Let church leaders or AIMPLB make demand first.

    Sure. Only Hindus enter temples to pray.


    Almost same for temples too.

    So do all non Hindus.

    But beauty is muslims are not clamouring for entry.

    Because it says so in the Hindu scriptures, widely established in the advaita philosophy and then also said by Krishna (whom Hindus believe as God).

    Where did advaita permit of non Hindus.? When did Krishna say so? Does Gita even once mention a temple? There were no Buddhists in Krishn's time. For temple entry, Buddhists, Jains and Sikhs are not banned.

    Please show us that non Hindus have natural rights in this regard.

    If you understood the gist of Hinduism you wouldn't talk like this. This is not about temple worship, it's bigger than that. All ancient vedic philosophies do not distinguish people by religion or cast whether it be Advaita or Isopanishad or Gita. When Krishna himself said "every religion is like a string of pearls to me", it shows the you have a problem in understanding the basis of hinduism, you are confining places of worship to temples.

    One has to always remember one point: When Vedas or Hinduism started there was no Other religion existed. That's why there is nothing about other religion.

    of course it has a news to you, why else would you argue? I'm saying your religion is not discriminatory but discrimination occurs only when its poorly understood. Read this
