Difference between Hinduism and Hindutva

Difference between Hinduism and Hindutva: "

Hinduism is different from Hindutva because we Hindus don’t believe in any “isms” or concepts. We believe in experience. That is why there is ony Hinduness and no “Hinduism”.

The word Hinduism is a misnomer. It brackets Hinduness with Islam and Christianity.

To be a Hindu is not being subject to a belief system. To be a Hindu is to be free because absolute freedom (Mokhsa) is the goal of Hindutva.
