In the Indian subcontinent religious beliefs and worldviews are grounded and embodied in the community experience. For many people, religion without tangible social expression, is deemed as irrelevant and futile. Even though the dominant religious persuasions may demand exclusive adherence, Dalits and Dalit Christians in India show the human capacity to influence such views, change their course of action and live with more than one prevailing religious worldview. This article strives to move beyond theories of hybridity within the study of religion and offers a constructive proposal that is synergetic in approach, facilitating an academic trope to work with the increasing realization of multi-religious belonging among Indian communities.
