Problems with Religion

Power corrupts, History divides, Religion consumes and the Shrewd thrive.
Religion has consumed humanity and has turned humans against humans. However, religion was supposed to protect and to promote humanity and therefore many are even of the view that religion as we see today and religion which is being followed today, isn’t religion in the real sense it is in fact a highly distorted and a highly radical form of it and thus it is not the ‘religion’ that is creating problems but the misinterpretation of religion by the people.
The above stated safeguard of religion is an acceptable one and to great an extent we can blame humans for radicalizing religion, which in its true sense is much an innocent concept whose mere object is to promote and to uplift humans and humanity.

Bonkers because their judgment of what they are doing and why they are doing is completely illogical, senseless, hypocrite and anarchic.
This letter, I hope it reaches its designated recipients, is a proof of the sens…


I have since long adhered to the view that the first step in curing communalism is the ‘realization of or the acceptance of the fact that we humans are not seculars’. In my previous writing ‘understanding the fight against Communalism’ I have proved that the communal instincts prevail in all of us and how it would be wrong to tag oneself a secular being. I had even concluded that the only way to fight communalism is by paralyzing it, paralyzing through economic and educational prosperity. There are however many who do not adhere to this view. There is a parallel view and a parallel solution to the menace of communalism which is, giving up our religious identities, which primarily divide us, and consequently turning atheists. Thus, by turning atheists we can truly liberate ourselves with the idea of religion and look beyond it as our means to sustenance and would ultimately nip the evil of communalism. Spreading atheism is the parallel solution to communalism. It was during a…
