Even this challenging situation would ease
As such caste and religion may not be necessary to live in
No life without Sun
Our ancestors classified us in different castes depending on the lifestyle we follow.
So the question that has plagued mankind for years. Is religion necessary?
I'd say, not much. Good religious beliefs make a person "moral". But again, morality can be inculcated into an individual in many other ways too.
The stronger a light shines the darker are the shadows around it.
The caveman had one religion - fear of nature. When nature was furious he remained inside the cave and probably prayed to the unknown power to stop the storm or hurricane or heavy rains etc and when it stopped itself he thought that some power above in the sky has listened to his prayers. This went on for generations and different settlements in the world on different continents had unknowingly adopted to this system of praying which after a long time converted to some form of primitive religion.
Though the basic philosophy of all the religions was evolved from a single point but due to different geographical conditions, sealed communities with no communication or exchange of persons in between, the religions developed in different ways. By the time communities started to mix with each other by way of wars or fights and begin to understand each other's culture, it was too late as regions were already developed to alarming heights.
Anyway modern day leaders exploit these religions for their selfish motives and the gullible religious persons succumb to them. It is unfortunate that a person is being known today by his religion rather than his qualification.
It is not that religion is the only attribute to fight with each other, there are many other reasons also. Today unfortunately religion is coming up as number one reason for fights, terrorism and confrontations and this is an alarming trend.
Knowledge is power.
with ourselves. People don't fight for religion they fight for their own selfish cause. In older days if someone is born in a particular religion or cast it show the work of that person. But nowadays we can't decide even work or duties of anyone on basis of his religion or caste. So now it's high time to stop fighting over religion.
