I was born as a baby girl. Thanks to the Supreme Power that devised a method of procreation.
Oh yes! I do believe in a Supreme Power that runs the Universe with its magic wand. A power that makes the tectonic plates of earth and other planets and stars move making way for more planets and asteroids in our galaxy and other galaxies. A power that no one has yet identified. A power that made complex toys called human beings.
I was born to Hindu parents and thus I’m supposed to be a Hindu. Honestly, we have no idea when and how the chain started in our family. But it is continuing and none of us bothered to question the rituals and beliefs we were to follow courtesy the religion we supposedly belonged to.
I’m sure that the rituals and beliefs would have differed if I were born in a different religion. But the underlying body that was to follow these remained the same in almost all aspects. Doesn’t it?
So, why are we fighting in the name of religion? Why are we fighting in the name of the millions of Gods that our ancestors devised for us? Has any one of you seen or spoken to your God? Did He come down and teach you to hate your fellow beings? Did He come down and ask you to proclaim your war by killing innocent young children, men and women? I doubt. Because I pray daily. I pray daily that the world be safe. I pray daily that may good sense prevail. But a look at the newspaper headlines makes me doubt my own God. The Super Power that I believe in. Because if He/She/It were actually this powerful, They could have stopped all of these. Isn’t that what the stories from each of our epics and holy books tell us. That God prevented bad events? So where are They? In hiding for their own existence? Or have They abandoned us totally?
The Supreme Power that I believe runs this universe would not want us to kill in His/Her/Their name. They have created us and have provided us with sufficient resources that can help us flourish. It is our own mentality and immaturity that we stoop down to these levels and chose to put the blame on Them.
I’m against the forced conversion of a human from any religion to any other.
I’m against those who killed thousands in the 9/11 attack. In New York.
I’m against those who massacred in the 26/11 attack in Mumbai.
I’m against those who brutally molest, rape and kill innocent children and females in Nigeria.
I’m against those who attack people blaming it all on mental instability.
I’m against those barbarians who are such cowards to shamelessly attack young school children in Peshawar in the name of revenge.
I’m against those who attacked the men and women at Charlie Hebdo.
Killing people of any age, from any region, of any religion, belonging to any caste, creed, race or social status is not justified at all. You have no God. You have no religion. You have no beliefs. Your teachings are satanic. The only place you belong to is Terrorism. I’m ashamed to be belonging to a species you belong to.
If a mere cartoon can disrespect your God, if a dress can insult your beliefs, if a food can robe you of your religion, it is time for you to free yourself from this world. Kill yourself! That will end half the misery in the world. How about a mass suicide attempt? Detoxification of self??
Stop killing in the name of God!
If you truly believe in one, you must know it’ll all be about love, friendliness, compassion, empathy, forgiveness, kindness, mindfulness and gratitude.
