The Gujarat 2002 bloodbath

During the political dispute surrounding Ram temple, Sabarmati Express was carrying Hindus right from Ayodhya when it was torched by Muslims killing 58 passengers, including women and children.

Hindu-Muslim riots are not uncommon in India, but Gujarat violence plumbed new depths of horror and brutality.

“all Jews must die”

27th of October 2018, when a gunman walks into a Shule in Pittsburgh synagog at The Tree of Life yelling, ‘all Jews must die’! Shooting 11 people dead and injuring 6.

Probably not. Let’s walk through the 2017 Halloween Horror!

“Allah Akbar” (god is great in Arabic)

Let’s not delve into terrorist and militant groups carrying out their deadly attacks to prove that their religion is superior.

Religion can be a very powerful social force.

How Leaders Used Religion?

Martin Luther King and Mahatma Gandhi were both empowered by their faith. Through their actions, they managed to change cultural attitudes and put a stop to oppressive government policies.

Gandhi of course was born a Hindu but his interpretation of Hinduism was his own. He chose the tool of nonviolence and we remember him for how well he used it!
