The internal consistency reliability of the Santosh-Francis Scale of Attitude toward Hinduism among Hindu Bunts in South India

By Niko Tiliopoulos, Leslie J. Francis and Mary Slattery

Abstract

The Santosh-Francis Scale of Attitude toward Hinduism was originally developed and tested among Hindu affiliates living in the United Kingdom. In the present study this instrument was completed by 100 Hindu affiliates from the Bunt caste in South India (48 males and 52 females). The data support the internal construct reliability of the scale in this context (α = .91) and commend the instrument for wider application within the Hindu community
