Is HVK a "reliable source"?[edit]

The HVK looks like a fine website to me. But there are many things I don't know about HVK, India, Hinduism and Wikipedia standards for reliable sources. Whether HVK is a reliable source, especially of HVK thinking, it certainly appears to be notable, and this article might be helpful for people considering reliability and perspective of this source. They certainly have some excellent articles that check against my knowledge of Christian sources, they seem to be people who do their homework and research alternative points of view.

In short, they look good from an academic angle, but do they check out politically, and within Wiki politics? Those are matters I don't follow closely. Best wishes all. Alastair Haines (talk) 12:35, 6 December 2008 (UTC)

Introduction Paragraph[edit]

The introductory paragraph mentions that Shiv Sena is part of group of organizations that constitutes Sangh Parivar. But this is not factually correct. Shiv Sena has never had association with Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh(RSS) aka Sangh. They never claim to be inspired by ideology of Sangh. Their only association with Sangh is that they have a political alliance with Bhartiya Janta Party ( BJP), which is a Sangh inspired organization. I suggest that the reference to Shiv Sena as a part of Sangh Parivar must be removed for sake of factual integrity. - Rajmohata (talk) 00:41, 7 April 2010 (UTC)
