The world  comprises of multifaceted people, thinking, feeling, communicating, acting and translating their experiences in their own unique way.This reality is  difficult to change. Any amount of force, imposition or legalisation to create uniformity will only bring division and conflict.
The Dharmik scriptures repeatedly display this, not as a divisive force but as a diverse force. Variety is nature's speciality, where in men of wisdom are able to harmonise this variety seamlessly .
In the Gita, Sri Krishna talks to Arjuna describing the multifarious worshippers, who they worship and their destination.
Unlike the abhramic culture which condemns anything that is not   confirming to its ideology.    What the Bhagvad Gita says is accomdating.  Krishna is not an autocratic God.
We see that in diversity Krishna can unite and coexist with less or little conflict and violence.
Sri Krishna wants people to be connected with dharma either directly or indirectly. Directly  by worshiping him and seeing him in everything that people do. Indirectly by worshiping devas or his energy  and moving and evolving in life.
The Vedas do not describe the supreme Brahman as being a jealous lover. He is supreme and he lovingly accepts the position of being limited to experience our relationship and gives experience of allowing relationship to all.
The supreme God gives supreme independence to his Jiva to choose and grow harmoniously and no one has the right to take this independence away.
Does it makes sense?  If yes then use the independence  rather than abusing it. When we use our independence  in this manner we experience the power of being supremely independent even whilst handling diverse individuals who are worshipping the Brahman who has offered us this greatest gift.
