Jihad in Bhagavad Gita – Jihad in Hinduism
📖Bhagavad Gita 11:34
Droṇa, Bhīṣma, Jayadratha, Karṇa and the other great warriors have already been destroyed by Me. Therefore, kill them and do not be disturbed. Simply fight, and you will vanquish your enemies in battle.
📖Bhagavad Gita 2:37
If you fight, you will either be slain on the battlefield and go to the celestial abodes, or you will gain victory and enjoy the kingdom on earth. Therefore arise with determination, O son of Kunti, and be prepared to fight.
Bhagavad Gita 2:38
Do thou fight for the sake of fighting, without considering happiness or distress, loss or gain, victory or defeat – and by so doing you shall never incur sin.
- There are many other verses in the Bhagavad Gita and other Hindu scriptures that mention jihad and fighting against disbelievers who do not believe in the Vedas.
