Abstract

Hinduism is seen as 'a way of life' that is not separate from politics and society. Its many and diverse representatives demand a place in the public sphere. But how is this place realized? Dharma is seen as the rationale behind any piece of proper behavior and legislation, be it the customary laws applied by local self-governing bodies (pañcayat) or the positive law enforced by the Courts. And yet no positive law grants this status to dharma.
