RELIGION AND EXTREMISM I

Filed under: RELIGION — Tags: — arpanam @ 12:06 am

Could we go into this intriguing and rather sensitive topic little more deeper. We do see cause and effect relationship with religion and present day extremism. These patterns are more than obvious and not acknowledging them would tantamount to be a life in denial.

Therefore, does religion, per se, have something thing in it that would make someone a zealot?
Is it as straightforward.

If so:

How would explain Naxalite’s, (essentially a communist guerrilla and avowed atheists ) indiscriminate and no less brutal massacres, time and again. Human rights violations are highest in Communist regimes. (Though paradoxical mist HR activists are Leftist)

Mao’s repeated, merciless attempts to create a new “socialist” China lead to death of an estimated 65 million Chinese.

Time immemorial kings has fought wars in for expansion of there empire. War crimes are not unknown to humanity.

So the problem much deeper.
Its “me”.

The most obvious is most oblivious.

There is no greater tragedy.
