Hinduism conceives the whole world as a single family that deifies the one truth, and therefore it accepts all forms of beliefs and dismisses labels of distinct religions which would imply a division of identity. Hence, Hinduism is devoid of the concepts of apostasy, heresy, and blasphemy.

However, in some tribal areas of India, apostates from Hinduism have been known to be attacked and humiliated by religious extremists. These isolated cases should be monitored to determine the extent of governmental apathy.
