Which religion do you belong to?

Many a times would you have approached a shop for procuringa packet of biscuit to overcome hunger; however did you ever ask the shopkeeper his/ her religion? And as a goods/ service provider, have you ever bothered about the religion of your customer? Rather, we welcome every of our client even whenhe/ she belongs to a religion different to ours. Then why does the newspaper say that some bikers asked for the names of people during one of the recent riots in the U.P. to ascertain religion and kill those who belonged to the dissimilar one?Likewise, why were the politicians, communal leaders, and even the common man categorizing voters in the recent polls on the basis of communities, which for sure has no worth in India’s secular setup?

‘What is your name?’ The answer to this question helps us toconclude about the habits, likings, behavior, and politicalviewpoint of the other person, along with his/ her outlooktowards violence and communal extremism. Plus, the answer also governs the duration of conversation. All those belonging to a particular community are assumed to be of the same attitude without any relevance to the educational and social background of the individual. Did the Almighty ever think of such a milieu wherein religion would not just form distinct clusters, but will also draw a line of detestation between the communities? Did He anticipate a day when blood would sprinkle of human bodiesnot because of scuffle for justice, but because of religious gaps?

247 communal riots in the U.P., 88 in Maharashtra, and 63 in Karnataka, with an overall count of 823 in 2013 reveals thesolemnity of India’s secularism. Hundreds were killed, with countless of those who were forced to vacate their houses andfind accommodation in government camps. And the politicians who quite often report their visits to the camps in the newspapers rarely know what it means to spend even a night of misery in such shelters. What good is then religion doing? When children are turning orphans, females widows, and menhandicapped just as an outcome of their being of any particular religion, how reasonable is it to be proud of such an evil social arrangement? Indeed, what we have made religion to is a fault of ours, not others.

Next is the concept that has fetched extreme popularity in the recent past- The living and visible Gods. Though the recentarrest of one of the most famed religious Gurus and his soncould have been an end to such blind faith, the disciples of thecountry are not yet ready for the change. It is beyond understanding that when humans alleging to be God are comprehensively a part of our society, why are poor not being blessed, or for that matter why are the hard-working farmers bound to commit suicide? Why only those followers whocontribute in financial terms are being blessed, while others are not even noticed by these so-called Almighties. Be it the Hindus, the Muslims, or the Sikhs, religious leaders have taken over the control of the actions of all humans.

Remember, religion serves as the pillar of mankind and humanity. Religion is for inner purity and remembrance of the Almighty, and not for any partition among groups. The question as discussed in the beginning should have no relevance simply because religion is not a social, economic, political, orenvironmental parameter. And when you claim to be an honest follower of the God, do not let others even realize which religion you belong to. The real question is until when will we categorize a person basis the religion and until when will we allow false Gods guide our actions? Also, can religion be allowed to supersede humanity, or will we recognize the factual meaning of religion, which in turn will add to peace and communal harmony?

Easily aggravated, we blindly follow the path presented by politicians and community leaders, which in the end leads tounending despair and pain. You must agree that a common man, to whichever religion he belongs to, aspires for dignity,opulence, and peace. Then who provokes this common man to become an assassin is not a tough question to answer. Be it for votes or for money, a cluster is favored over the other just to make forbidden profits. Shall I not ask why no one discusses the Godhra mishap, while what happened next has always been a crucial matter of politics? In the same context, why the constituents of a particular community are constantly looked upon as betrayers or extremists? Putting an end to hatred/violence, let us aim for amity.

    This is an excellent article. 6 million people were killed by Hitler because their religion was Judaism. 1 million people were killed during partition of the country because of their religion. Let us say No to religion and yes to Atheism and Agnosticism

    Perhaps we need to find the distinction between the religion and the Dharma, particularly in India.
    As our ancient wisdom have always focused on dharma, for e g, what should be the Dharma of a Son , Mother , Sister, brother, a citizen towards his country and to his fellow men.
    But this raises more deep questions as Do we all need to introspect more into the changing nature of time regarding the word ‘Religion’. ?
    Or the root cause is in our Education teaches us, herd mentality?
    Have we become so numb, in the race, where we have become judgmental towards everything?
