Hindus/Ahimsa

Question
Do you have to follow Ahimsa to be a Hindu?

Answer
Dear Natalie

In daily life, you are expected to follow Ahimsa. However the scripture of Mahabharat, Ramayan, Gita and other holy books refers to protecting Dharma by any means including extreme form of sacrifice. The war of Mahabharat is an example.

Hope that helps
