1. Since young unmarried girls were forcibly taken away, child marriage became the order of the day.2. People became so terrified of after affects of girl child that they preferred to kill the girl as soon as she was born.
3. Performance of early marriage of girl became most important, for which dowry was asked for and given…those who could not afford dowry even went for older groom and/or much older groom.
4. Older groom and much older groom caused in most cases widowhood to these young girls. These young girls were susceptible to various exploitation…To curb this SATI was enforced forcefully.5. Oppression of the severest kind was used for conversion. In such case to SUSTAIN the Hindu society, Karma was given a temporary burial, since resistance was futile.6. Since invaders also wanted to rule and collect taxes, caste system was further given a boost as it automatically organized Hindus in various groups, which helped in collecting taxes.7. With the burial of Karma, pooja and rituals, or Bhakti as it was called was declared sufficient to perform religion.8. Even fasting, an all important part of any pooja or ritual, was diluted significantly, so that people can have the satisfaction of successfully performed the religious obligation. People were told not to consume grains, cereals and salt, but they were allowed to consume milk, milk products, other eatables and fruits. People were thus allowed to enjoy their special meals of rich products and were still declared as on fast.9. To keep the hope that oppression will end and ever thing will be alright, the potency of God was also increased.

ABOUT MY BLOG: One has to accept that Hindus, though, highly religious, are not getting desired result as a society. Female feticide, lack of education for girls, dowry deaths, suicides among farmers, increase in court cases among relatives, corruption, mistrust and discontent, are all physical parameters to measure the effectiveness or success/failure of RELIGION, in a society. And all this, despite the fact, that spending on religion, by Hindus, has increased drastically after the advent of multiple TV channels. There is serious problem of attitude of every individual which need to be corrected. Revival of Hindu religion, perhaps, is the only way forward.
I am writing how problems, faced by Indian people can be sorted out by revival of Hindu Religion.
