Description

While people who identify with Hinduism are typically happy for others to adopt ideas and practices associated with Hinduism, many Hindus do not see conversion as necessary. Nevertheless, some groups, particularly guru movements, actively recruit people to their movements, though other Hindus do not always recognize these converts as Hindu.
