The last fifty years have seen the partition of India repeated communal riots, demolition of temples and mosques and breaking up of communal freindships. Islam has always been militant in character throughout history. Hindusism has never been militant in character. It has been largely rational in character.
All religions preach love and kindness. All religions emphasise the brotherhood of mankind and the unity of life. All religions teach a sense of values. We cannot banish religion just because it is the most powerful weapon for the divisive forces. The need is to inculcate a scientific temper and reational thinking by means of proper education. True religion is rationalistic and humane.
