In the name of Religion…..

Please read this one and comment what is your view on this.

 

I am writing this article because I am confused and misguided like several others in the name of religion. Let us first understand what religion is as told to us. A Religion is a belief in the existence of a supernatural power, that we call GOD. Every religion teaches, that there is a divine being, who had created the universe and everything within it. He is the preserver and destroyer. He created the galaxies, stars, sun, planets. He created birds, animals, reptiles, mosquitoes etc. He created man as well as Satan, the Jinns and other hidden creatures. Some religions say this life is a test, God is examining all of us. He will judge us on doomsday. Some say this life is a gift, live it to fullest, the heaven is here and so the hell. Some believe in reincarnation, the soul will take another form, after the death. Our sorrows, happiness, success, failures all is in his hands. A universal truth. But my question here is, did he created any religion? No, for me is No, and for all those people who really believe in GOD should say, no. It’s we humans who make religions. GOD only created man, he said to his angels to bow to Adam, as he was his finest creation. We as GOD’s finest creation should be most proud of, but are we really? Over the ages man has destroyed the nature for his own means, cutting of trees, mountains, polluted  water and air etc., there are numerous examples which we can see in today’s world. Mankind is under the process of self-annihilation. Man has not even spare the GOD, we broke his name into several pieces. Each religion is carrying a piece or more by converting it into its own form and selling it. It’s a great business, every religion carries its own version of GOD. These versions are sold in the market in the form of ideology or beliefs.

These religions have created a boundary for their followers. No one can dare to cross that barrier. It is actually more powerful than the borderline which separate the countries. Because it is more emotionally brain washed. Hinduism is for Hindus, Islam is for Muslims, Christianity is for Christians and so on. We are actually not divided by the borders but religions. When it comes to beliefs we are always at war with each other. The war of words and ideologies, one will be defeated or several can be killed in the name of religion. Examples are the crusades (or Holy wars) that ran for several hundred years. Jews, Muslims, Christians fought fiercely to gain control over the holy land of Jerusalem, Israel.  Millions lost their lives. Jerusalem is the shrine for all these three religions, they belong to the same family tree (Abrahamic religions) and they believe in the same GOD, the GOD of Abraham. Did GOD commanded them to do so or was it written in some scriptures, not at all. But they fought, for what? For their greed, to be powerful and religion served as a canopy. Over the time, religious leaders has fabricated these scriptures which benefits them and the political system. Religion and Politics always run hand by hand. There are numerous events like crusades that happened and still going on in various countries. It kill only the poor followers, who are influenced by these fraternities. At the end, they killed the HUMANITY, in the name of religion.

We all agree that all the religions carries same message, same teachings. Like love, respect, loyalty, truthfulness, brotherhood, GOD is one, Prophets and so on, the list is very vast. Yet the religions is the most common reason for the sufferings of the Man. When they enlighten us with such high standards to live, it is the one common reason of enmity. Doesn’t it sounds strange? We are very orthodox, perform every religious deity, we worship our lords in whatever form they are presented to us, spends lakhs of money in donation to religious trust, we should be more humble and kind,  but what we lack is the basic ……..HUMANITY. Unable to withstand other person, a Hindu can’t stand for a Muslim, a Muslim hates a Hindu and so on. There is always a barrier between us, which stops us to follow our conscience. It has become a sin to respect, love other religions people. Example is inter caste marriages, two persons in love get marry to spend their lives together, GOD will not have any problem with it, he will only bestow his blessings on them, but the filthy creatures down here will not accept it. They will terrified them or can create havoc. In my country, some people can even kill a person by seeing a piece of meat. The most stupid event I have ever seen or heard. Just by looking at the piece of meat, can anyone say which animal was it? Cow, Buffalo, Camel, Goat….I can’t say. But when a moron shouted aloud and claimed it belongs to an animal which they worship, believe me hundreds came out in the streets with their arms. They just heard a person who is a religious figure and they killed many for that sin, without even understanding the situation. That’s how we behave when it comes to our belief. Didn’t even realize that stupidity had just killed not only a human, but insulted the whole HUMANITY. One more incident that shocked the whole world happened last year in Pakistan. Some terrorists attacked a school and bombed it to ashes. They killed hundreds innocent children in the name of Jihad. What Jihad were they doing? When Islam clearly said that killing even a single innocent person is like killing the whole HUMANITY.

At broader level, we can conclude the similarity between religions is because their message is from the one universal being.  The message is HUMANITY. Perhaps, these religions are the part of this universal message of HUMANITY. It is dying slowly and steadily, a day will come we humans conspire by the satanic forces, would destroy it completely. That day will be the end of everything. GOD stated, he will one day ends everything we see. But that doesn’t mean we stop being human and destroy ourselves. I am not here to offend any religious sentiments or person, I even follow mine. The series of events we see in today’s world insisting us to think what and who are we following. No religion is bad but some morons are falsifying our beliefs, our mistake is we are following their fabricated religion. We should follow our religion, worship the almighty in whatever form written in our religious scripture. But should always be in the boundaries of HUMANITY. Because it is the one and only true religion. It is bigger than any country, any belief, any person. Remember, on the doomsday we will not be judged on the grounds of religion, but yes we will be benefited by our good deeds, HUMANITY.

  1. Fantastic post, religion is a tough one to write about because views and opinions can be so strong. I specifically agree with this “these religions have created a boundary for their followers. No one can dare to cross that barrier. It is actually more powerful than the borderline which separate the countries”. That has always been my struggle with following a specific religion. What I have learned to do is take from each religion a value or belief that resonates with me.

  2. Good take, my objective is not to hurt any religion that’s why I didn’t mention any particular one. I just want to draw attention towards the inhumanity done in the name of religion. Some insane people mixed their extremist thoughts with religion. We should be aware of such people and should not let them prosper.
