The  Madhvas worship Lord Krishna, the Lingayats worship Lord Shiva, and  theVaishnavites, Lord Vishnu and his avatars. Konkanis worship both; they are fish eating Brahmins.

Jainism is a contemporary religion of Buddhism and is practiced in various parts of India. It advocates non-violence. Non-violence is the weapon chosen by Gandhi to fight the British.
