Hinduism is the last remnant of the old Indo-European faith that relished
images of the deities. If we applied the principles of Islam to the
article on Hinduism to to articles on Hindu deities, it would be grossly
inappropriate. What is being asked for is application of Islamic
principles to the key articles about Islam. I think it is a matter of
respect, of avoiding offense, of authenticity.
