Hindus/Ahimsa

Question
Are there any situations where a Hindu would go against Ahimsa?

Answer
Dear Evie

Hindu right wing militancy take shelter under it.  They use it in response to violent methods adopted by other religious practitioners, the state and others. Religious extremism is not propagated by any religion, including Hinduism. A true Hindu must not practice Ahimsa.

Hope that helps
