Because of this, there are no actual conversion rituals"- This flexibility is the pillar of strength of Hinduism . comment

Seemingly our Hinduism is flexible; the truth is we are accustomed or trained up to live with Brahmin bluffs and lies. What you call as pillar or strength is out of misinformation without knowing the statistics that we have lost half of our land and people to foreign r ...more

When there is no beliefs or laws then anything can be formed
as it is structure less without a foundation

but then a shudra is shudra and brahmin brahmin by birth alone
