Religious Differences-We Need To Think All Over Again…

With all the arguments and  dissents that are pervasive in our democracy these days, what is most perceptible  to me is the general nature of the people of India to trust what have been taught to them since centuries in a particular geographic region. What I mean with the above statement is that our nature and innate tendency to believe what is right or wrong or to demarcate right from wrong  with the help of widely held belief without judging any issue ourself is one reason why most of the sects of the biggest democracy of world are at loggerheads with each other these days. Without knowing why we are following anything, the nature to question other’s drawback has become our basic disposition. Many personalities holding many important posts have been doing it since ages to make Indians think how different they are from each other irrespective of the fact that all of them are actually Indians. We, the people of India, on the other hand believe that we take decisions on the basis of how we perceive the world. If we ask ourself this question I believe we’ll get to know that most of the knowledge that we have is based on what we have been taught and is not based on our own knowledge.
So what I reckon we must do is to think and ask ourselves-without being judgemental about other sects-the question as to why we think anything the way we do. Is it something that we know with the evidence or we believe it because we have been witnessing it all our lives or we are having a notion about other sects just because we have been taught to think about them in that particular way. This question if asked to ourselves honestly can give all the answers to our problems regarding sectarian disharmony and can make the society a great place to live in.
