New propaganda going on that there is no concept of charity in Hinduism like christianity— Vedic Wisdom...\u0950 (@VedicWisdom1) December 4, 2020
Christian charity is for conversion only,
Charity is not only part of Hinduism but hindu society is based on Charity.

While the [email protected] Zakat or xtian Charity is limited to people who adopts their faith the real meaning of Dāna,Dakshina & Bhiksha has all together a different purpose that doesn't come with the baggage of gaining something in return.
Many of our scriptures points out the duty, benefit and purpose of Dāna. Here are a few references from our Sanatani scriptures that attunes to charity.
In Bhagavad Gita, (17:20) Shri Krishna mentions that charity given without the expectation of anything in return is the highest form of Charity & is considered sattvik.
In the next verse (17:21) Krishna particularly says charity given with any expectation of any reward or return or given with reluctance or grudges is not the highest form of charity thus emphasisg the selfless form of Dāna even more.
