As long as we have self conflict (conflict in our own mind between different facets of our personalities), external wars and conflicts are inevitable. The macrocosm (bigger outside world) is but a projection of the microcosm (the smaller inner mental world).

If any war is fought to protect dharma then it is justified. Suppose tomorrow USA attacks India then it is your dharma to fight for your country. Similarly the great war of Mahabharata was inevitable because had the Pandavas didnt fight against the Kauravas the dharma would have been shattered. The whole world would have become the territory of evil Kauravas and they had been insulting women. If the daughter-in-law of the Kuru dynasty can be insulted then just think about a comman woman under Kauravas rule.

The theorotical aspect is concerned with ethically justifying war and the forms that warfare may or may not take. The Historical aspect, or the Just war tradition deal with the historical body of rules or agreement that have applied in various war across the ages. Moreover, Hinduism, like most religions, believes that war is undesirable and avoidable because it involves killing fellow humans. However, it recognizes that there can be situations when waging war is a better path than tolerating evil. Does that mean Hindusim glorifies war ? it is very difficult to say. but the very fact that the backdrop of the Gita which Hindus consider sacrosanct, is the battlefield and its main protogonist a warrior, may lead many to lead that Hinduism supports the act of war. In fact Gita neither sanction war nor condemns it. When Arjun teh fabled bowman ...more
