My only exposure to hinduism was hanging-out with the Hare-Krishnas in London.
They seemed obsessed with dressing-up and being different to everyone else.
Oh, and worshipping elephants (:>
It seemed harmless enough, though, and rather flamboyant.
Too bad it was so obviously all fake, as practiced by westerners.
There is a clear difference, between most Indians versus Pakistanis, the former being almost exclusively hindus, and the latter muslims.
The former are almost universally polite, warm and friendly.
The latter, almost universally rude, aloof and hostile.
