What’s True About Religion

At this time when whole world in one way or the other is affected by stings of strange interpretations of religion, its necessary enough to have a closer look what our religion is all about. The weird situations come when people start personifying the religion deeds or so-called Religious leaders whom we often call as “Prophets” or “Deities” or even sometimes GODs.

One of the worst sufferer at this stage would be The Greener Pasture for India, the United States of America. Very famous for Stinger Missiles to the world, the country shooked with shock when some religious fanatics literally attacked it with its own aircraft, resulting in worst human casualities of all terrorist attacks. Undoubtedly it could easily be owed to the insane interpretation of religious scripts by some fanatic leaders who for their own benefit or interest, are misleading millions of youths into what they like to call “Religious War”.

Weeks ago, whole nation stood with their fingers crossed when judgement was about to be passed for Babri Masjid or Ayodhya dispute. I mentioned “fingers crossed” as it was the same dispute which had costed thousands life years ago. As a child I still remember a household gas cylinder shooting feets above in the sky just meters away from my eyes when communal riots broke out in 1992. Roars of religious chants of those times sometime still echo in my ears, the fear still shakes up my soul, though I did not loose anything personally. It was a pleasant surprise to see the way our beloved political leaders behaved this time. Refraining from giving provoking speech, most of them actually asked nation to respond to the judgement sensibly, with exception of few who I believe can never change. It was really matter of pride to see nation standing together, showing faith in judiciary system. At the same time, I found it hilarious to notice that even our GOD – Ram Lalla or “The infant Rama”, for the first time was one of the party of the dispute. That in my opinion, was most we could do to prove that the so called land actually belonged to him.

Its seriously a high time we critically examine that the religion we follow, is it worth of sacrifice of these many innocent lives. Being born in a Hindu family, I believe I can take liberty only with the religion I follow.

In almost every religion in the world who advocates the supremacy of one Divine power or Divine Lord, there are two kinds of followers. One who is superstitious, who does not want to look beyond what has been taught by religious books or the religious leaders of the society, other who does not readily want to accept what is presented to him but most certainly is not atheist. Frankly speaking the whole business of the religious drama prospers on only first kind of followers. The term “Business” used by me is not an exaggeration. I would definitely try to justify the use of it in later part of blog or may be in my next blog.

The religious books/scriptures or what we like to call “The Holy Books” have often been manipulated, reinterpreted or even re-written before it is given into our hands. There are a large number of people in the world who would support me in this statement. In Christianity, it is well known to the world that real Bible ( Codex Vaticanus ) is hidden somewhere in Vatican library and what we hold today in our hands is just a version of Bible probably re-written by Church. Although they claim it to be just a translation, there had been speculations about facts getting twisted in the modern versions just for purpose of assertion of dominance of Church. People who mostly are second kind of followers, not necessarily atheists, contend that there is huge ambiguity in the versions available today. I would rather not ‘dare’ to divulge or reiterate details which are already available widely on internet. I have already told I can take liberty only with religion I follow. I further apologize for hurting anyone’s sentiments as it was unintentional. I’m citing only the facts which have already been discussed by probably hundred people over the years.

Coming back to religion I follow, in Hinduism, we follow a practice of performing Puja – a religious ritual performed as an offering to deities. This on special occasions is usually done under supervision of a priest belonging to a particular caste known as Brahmins. Do we realize that it can never be just a co-incidence that almost all Puja(s) performed by priests ends with giving Dakshina (recompense) to them. Its a tradition followed as it has been recommended by the scriptures. It is believed that person or sacrificer goes to Heaven after death if he has given proper Dakshina for the services of priest. This cannot and will not be considered as just a matter of chance when we get to know the fact that most of the Holy Scriptures at one point or the other have been written or recommended by people belonging to this particular caste of the society. Have you ever noticed any religious scripture bluntly criticizing these priestly caste people? “Rarest” could be the most appropriate word to describe.

I’m not trying to make or create any opinion about any Sect or caste here, neither I’m here to support any particular religion. I believe it’s necessary to mention at this point that I’m not an atheist and I religiously follow Hinduism. I’m only in favor of considering these scriptures as source of information, traditional stories or collection of fables which are nothing more than ethical guidance, illustrating moral lessons. Things start to go wrong when we try to relate these stories to the historic events
