Humanism doesn’t need any Nationalism. Love your neighbour and give due respect to his views,your country will be at peace.But just because you are in a majority and take it upon yourself the task of transformation of the society in your favour is nothing but majoritarian hooliganism and why at all any individual should be barred from taking up any religion he or she likes?
Religion is nothing but a garb to profiteering be it political, social or economical. Nothing more than that.In the real sense.
If we believe in a Just society why should be able to remove the ugly dirty skins wrapped around our body/soul by the people of previous centuries.Not too exhaustive though.
Religion is the root cause of all evils in the society even if it’s not so at personal level.Real progress will happen only when people get real education and begin to see as new born in a new world and not by aligning themselves with anything that are around them.
Throw the dirty water and the baby too along with the bucket and you will transform. Your transformation is the transformation of the world.Surely someday a world government will be established by our children and none of would be living to see them.How sad it is to fail to establish such in our own period now ?
Open you eyes to reality/possibilities ahead.Our actions based on controlled contrived feelings are just waste of human energy in the big picture and what a colossal loss?

Terrorism is a religion in itself and anybody who believes in ‘tit for tat’ or religious jehad(for any religion)has already converted themselves.And if people get converted by ‘money or fear’ then they really do not have faith or belong to any religion. You show them money they would willingly also become athiest.

So let’s stop pretending, Muslims openly boast of how they will forcibly convert the whole world. They use distractions and arguments just to buy enough time…
If you want to pretend on the outside for political reasons, that’s one thing, just be clear in your mind who is likely to cut your throat.

They should join the BJP and not shun it and then they will have a voice right inside with Indian Nationalists.
The other parties want them as only as a obedient vote bank. It is up to them to act quickly so that there are consensus solutions on all issues.

arly to point a finger towards hindus.BECAUSE A HINDU DOSE NOT BELIEVE IN JEHAD as the muslims does.IT is a real tragedy that hindus are treated as second class citizens in their own mother land by so called secularists ,these black sheeps were out in herds when some antinational animals were gunned down in DELHI recently by DELHI POLICE THERE WAS A LOT OF HUE &cry .INthe end one thing is sure that it is wrong to say that all the muslims are terrorists but it is right that all the terrorists are muslims, it can be seen worldwide.

Why is it bad to be an assertive Hindu while everybody else can, with no remorse or regret…..
