There is a terror attack every day, every other hour, in some or the other corner of the globe. The attackers in most cases are driven by fundamentalist thoughts of achieving a heaven full of virgin girls and wine as described in Jihadi literature. Yet the same literature is being allowed to openly be published and spread this religious hatred against ‘non-believers’, and how they deserve nothing but eternal hell-fire in case they choose to not accept the Merciful Allah and related Profit.
No check is their on so-called preachers who prey on the vulnerable and fanatically inclined youth, and who brainwash them to believe that joining ISIS is the best use of their potential. Even if it means having to go clean toilets in Iraq for the Islamic State.
For some morons, it is difficult to digest that personal belief is indeed personal. You can talk as much as you want about why your belief-system is best, but eventually decision to choose a belief-system is personal. If you think someone is following a wrong belief-system, let God punish him. Why must you be an agent?
Ironically though, many religious shops of today thrive on hatred. Such shops must be destroyed to bring communal harmony.
To do it objectively, top 10 most popular publications of religious books of each religion must be brought. All publications taught in gurukuls, madarsas and convents must be also included. They will most probably include:
– Various translations of Gita, Ramcharitmanas, Hanuman Chalisa, Upanishads etc
– Various translations of Bible, stories of Bible etc
– Various translations of Quran, Hadiths etc
Now each of these must be reviewed for following:
– Does the publication claim that non-believers will go to Hell?
– Does the publication differentiate between believers and disbelievers?
If yes, all such books must be outrightly banned. Let the publishers bring out alternate translations that do not have these defects. No book – religious or non-religious – must be allowed in education that explicitly suggests punishment (divine or non-divine) and hatred against non-believers. These silly translations are making mess of our beautiful world.
We are one humanity, one family.
