Recently a user asked a question over Jainism :-
Jain's are supposed to believe in nonviolence, but I don't understand how that is possible. Surely, in certain circumstances you may need to use force / violence but I can't find where to look for information like this.
I've been brought up by parents who don't believe in violence, but is it against my religion to be violent at times?
So I would like to point out that Jain isn't counted in Hinduism.
Quoting from Wikipedia :
Jainism and Hinduism are two ancient Indian religions. Over the years, Jainism has been influenced by Hinduism. Jains have rejected various Hindu deities or have incorporated them within their own system. The Jain Universal history seems to have been built around the Hindu epics and traditions.
And hence, asking about Jainism will be considered as off-topic, I would like to hear comments if some users have different opinion over this...
