Srimathe Ramanujaya Nama:

Dear Sri.JaiSimman,

Well,  regarding the religious faiths from West, Our seers could not have
commented
due to the very fact  during their existence, these religions were not even
born.

However, I have heard Sri Krishna Premi once telling in a discourse, that any
religious philosophy or practice if it is  not sanctioned by Vedic Dharma or
that which does not recognise the superiority of Sri Vasudeva should not be
given importance.

He was referring to Buddhism Buddhism also talks of ahimsa, truth etc like
vaishnavism.
He said that such things are like serving the Honey in
a container made of Dog's skin. Though the content is  Honey, since not served
through the right medium of vedic sanathana Dharma, it has to be rejected. I
feel this holds good for other latter faiths also.
