|I think religion should not be mixed with politics, because many deference religious people live in a country, so according to me, the position should.
Be selected a right person, who have experience and good knowledge about it, not to be selected as a religion basis. Its great example is separation. Pakistan of India.
|Catherine said: (Jun 18, 2016)|
|No. Religion and politics should not be mixed. India, as we all know, is a secularism democracy and is blessed with diverse, cultures and traditions and religions. But I think it's easier said than done. Since recent times, most politicians including the present ruling, I feel takes advantage of the majority and minority groups. In my opinion, since India is a secular country, all religions must be given the equal opportunity to express their thoughts and people or politicians of one country should not be allowed to exploit the others (THIS WAS MY FIRST THOUGHT BUT. ).
On the other hand, if you think about it, some people see untouchability and 'honor killings' as part of a custom or religion, certain groups are publicly avoided and are never allowed huge promotions in the economic sector. (There are many more instances I learned in Grade 8 but right now, I forgot). In such cases, I feel politics can and should interfere to ensure that everyone is content.
|Meera Singh said: (Jun 18, 2016)|
|I think including or even mixing religion with caste is a very cheap way of getting votes from a majority of people. Since politicians look for their benefit rather than the benefit of the people, casteism is a common way which may bring votes but not notes (money).|
|Lol said: (Jun 16, 2016)|
|According to me, today's topic is very sensible and beneficial for our country. During election period, many politicians came with religion issues. They start representing a religion. Start giving promises for vote. We should not elect such a representative. We should not support him or her because of greed. We should keep in mind terrorists unite when religion divides. So never mix religion with politics.|
|Akanksha Nigam said: (Jun 16, 2016)|
|Hello, everyone. I respect and appreciate every thought mentioned above.
I believe that politics and religion should not be mixed at all by political leaders as because it intensely affects the individual identity of a person and sometimes if something bad would happen because of an individual perspective then the whole community would have been blamed which is not at all good practice as because every civilized citizen wants harmony and peace rather than prioritized by any political leader. We as an Indian wants great leaders who can provide growth and development to Indian an Indian people not the discrimination between each other. India is a resilient country we want great leaders to make India proud not to create discrepancy and hatred between the people.
I'm Akanksha Nigam proud to be an Indian who is able to celebrate not only her festivals also can be happy and share happiness while celebrating others religious festival.
We as an Indian have a great taste of so many religion and culture also we have so many things to learn because of so many religion we have in our country.
India believes "unity in diversity" and we all should respect this beautiful thought as an Indian.
Love you India.
|Sneha said: (May 18, 2016)|
I can say that for a good thing to happen at first we should wake up. Why should we encourage politicians to bring religious feeling between us? One should respect others and their religion. If we are going to react based on religious politics it will reflect on us. If we are going to choose the person who respects his/her duty this discrepancy may not be raised. So change should come from within. If we are strong enough that we don't have religious feelings between us no one can raise that topic even. If we try to change within we can expect the change in society.
|Deepak said: (May 13, 2016)|
|Religion should not be mixed with politics But what if certain sensitive topics need political interference. Shouldn't the concerns of the majority population be addressed by the leaders of the nation ? Recently 'beef ban' is in news. If a religion guy has just worshiped an animal and hours later he come to know that the smell from neighbor's house is on beef and it has been the same animal worshiped, this will create rukkas and inharmonious environment. Thus, politicians should not cook their meal on religious matters but should participate with pure intentions giving detailed and logical explanations to the religious causes and having healthy public debates as they are the voice of public keeping in mind that if India allows diversity, we should assure harmony.|
|Pradip Pawar said: (Apr 21, 2016)|
|No. Religion should not mix with the politics. In last year, we have heard and even saw "meat ban" this all happen because of religion. One religion person that belong from his/her own religion he likes to say whatever in my region it is right according to traditional rule so who we are to change this rule. Then another religion people say but in my religion and in tradition it will not accept. It is truely said that terrorists unite us while religion divides. The politician also gates advantage of the religion matter.|
|Sundar said: (Apr 7, 2016)|
|Religion is one's belief regarding the creator of him. It defines how he sees the nature, others and himself in the society. It's the belief he/she strongly possess and nurture it in his mind and soul.
Politics is the one which allows the representatives to communicate with the people. It's the way, one can get the belief and of people. It's the way one can express himself on what he can do for the welfare of the society and the way in which he/she can understand & protect the belief of the people.
So two beliefs (one as Religion and one as politics) met each other when there is a necessity. Involving religion in politics is not always an evil. Bhakti Movement involved it for the welfare of people and it provided the base for the unity of people. During independence, Religion was one of the major factors which provoked sentiments of people and leads to the revolution. It's the combination which can provoke mass people towards good as well as poor.
According to me, Involving religion in politics is not a bad thing, but it depends on the way how it's interpreted. So, good politicians, people representative using it for the welfare of the citizens, it's always a movement of welcome.
PS: Avoiding or prohibiting or nullifying anything will not be useful for the welfare.
|Abc said: (Mar 23, 2016)|
|India is a country of diverse culture. Nowadays politicians are approaching the general public on the basis of religion to increase their vote bank. This should not be done as it not only increases their votes but also divides the country.|
|Pammy said: (Mar 22, 2016)|
Politics should not be mixed with religion. In a country like India, it is very difficult to change the system which is followed for many years. People of India should change their way of thinking. Each and every individual should educate themselves and vote for a right person.
|Shaashwata Audichya said: (Mar 16, 2016)|
|In my point of view POLARIZATION on the basis of RELIGION will not lead India to the international level. People in India are day by day getting sensible they know that, this is all set. It will not benefit the citizens of our country, still there are many issues like poverty, unemployment, security of the women's its political leaders should end the dirty politics on the basis of caste, religion and lay their emphasize on the development of the people and surmount over these issues. So therefore religion shouldn't be amalgamated with the politics. Politics is for the welfare of the people.|
|Akku George said: (Mar 12, 2016)|
|We should not support any such parties. People should understand that the people belong to a particular political party should be honest, caring, forgiving, down to earth attitude. This will answer all other similar questions like discrimination (religion, gender, race, wealth, country, etc. ) , corruption, greed, violence, etc. etc. Rather that asking such question we should discuss on honest, caring, forgiving, down to earth attitude.|
|Jivesh said: (Mar 10, 2016)|
|DURING colonial period British government had run the policy of divide and rule. This division was based on various methodology on the basis of living standards, caste, religion.
As it been truly said that "there is always a knot in between joined broken thread". In that manner our brotherhood is still unable to bind those gap. Politicians are now taking the advantage of those division. In our multiparty system politician tell their people specifically that he will work best for him then others.
|Meno Yhoshu said: (Mar 10, 2016)|
In my perspective, politics and religion goes hand in hand.
Why? Talking based only on the negative impact of the past is not the holistic approach. It is widely mistaken in India that secularism (Civil Religion) is equated with religion. However, the real issue lies with communalism and not religion. Every religion has its own high ideals which propagate the well being of humanity.
On the other hand, we cannot afford to continue to subscribe to the same old 'Blame Game' of power politics. Instead, it's much wiser to come out of our pointing finger purview and be a rational active ambassadors of both religious and political ideals.
At the bottom line both are age old institutions that have enriched, shaped and withstand challenges thus far in this great country of ours. It's is the players/stakeholders that defame named institutions.
|Shreeraj said: (Mar 2, 2016)|
|Politics should be played, but not to divide the people as per their religion and basically those are the two different things, one should not mix those for their personal benefit in the election And everyone should believe humanity is the only religion.|
|Vasu said: (Feb 29, 2016)|
|Yes, I strongly believe that religion should not be mixed with the politics. In our country, there are many provisions are present in the constitution to protect and uphold one's religion. But unfortunately today's politics are drowned in caste and religion.
Now the political parties taking advantage from the caste and religion to win the elections. So it is mandatory to bring the amendment or an act for not use caste and religion politics. The election commission has to take care to not to include caste and religion in the political party manifesto. Then only we can find harmony in the democracy.
|Adil Ali said: (Feb 26, 2016)|
|I partially agree with you all, I think politics has nothing to do with religion and the politicians should not play politics on the ground of religion because if politics will mix with religion there will always be a threat to communal harmony and nobody can live peacefully. Politicians always try to gain political benefits when there is an election by polarizing the votes on the basis of religion.
Everybody has the right to live with peace, equality and to accept any religion of their choice and it is also written in every holy book to live with brotherhood with everyone either they are from your religion or not. So people should boycott those political parties who play religion card and should choose the one who will do the development of the country.
|Debarati Ghosh said: (Feb 17, 2016)|
|Religion is birth right but politics is certainly not. In the present scenario it is seen that religion is used as weapon to make a foothold at politics but this should not be done. Yes we all support universal adult franchise but it's for the upliftment of the society and not to bring a political party in power.|
|Ruban said: (Feb 16, 2016)|
I agree this statement. If religion involved with politics it will be against human rights. Religion is valuable thing. So do not compare with politics.
Thanks for your reading.
|Dhurga said: (Feb 10, 2016)|
Religion & Politics are two most important one for citizens of our country. But both have different morals & rules. Here comes the politics of our politicians to make a victory. They all using religious people for their victory.
Even Though most of the Indian peoples are well educated there is some religious feel stick to them which make them to fail in their responsibility to choose a better leaders for our country.
Think before you vote whether they are eligible for that post rather voting them because they belong to our religion. Even now so many parents are uneducated let us explain them not to vote based on religion. Religion never related with politics! Our responsibility is related with politics.
|Hasanpreet Kaur said: (Feb 8, 2016)|
|YES I AGREE THAT RELIGION SHOULD NOT BE MIXED WITH POLITICS. India is blessed by the grace of god with many number of religions, caste, culture, cuisine and various other forms which teaches us brotherhood, dignity, spirit of service.
Many of the people prefer to vote those candidates which belongs to their community instead of analyzing the candidate who can put their views forward in the parliament. And our religion and great forefathers teaches us that their is one god for all and we should obey this by the bottom of our heart.
So I would like to conclude this my saying that we should choose those candidates who are deserving and faithful towards their duty in order to make better and safe nation for us.
|Dhurga said: (Feb 8, 2016)|
How could we relate politics with religion which is entirely different. Yes, here comes the politics of politician they make use of the religious people for their victory.
We all must have the knowledge for differentiating religion from politics. So that we may stop electing ambitious leaders.
Be a responsible citizen to choose a responsible leaders for our country. Thank for hearing my point of view.
|Madhu said: (Feb 8, 2016)|
|Religion should not mixed with politics. Well this is the most important topic to discuss friends.
Firstly, government has been only conducting election by keeping in mind that the upcoming leader should take care of our country by giving equal priority to all rather than giving more priority to specific group.
Here Religion should not play any special role. Every citizen is having equal rights and equal access to any schemes introduced in our country. If religion is involved with politics, it will be against the human rights.
Religion and cast are the one which are created to use only in the place where it has to be. If it is involved with politics, then the political government is doing injustice to our country. India should become a country where every single individual should be treated in equal manner.
|Ashna said: (Jan 29, 2016)|
|Also, what we ever so often forget is that while every religion preaches good values, not every follower of a particular religion is good. Hence voting for a candidate based on his religion or caste as a parameter to judge his honesty and truthfulness is to act naive.
One should rather cast votes for a candidate who has proved himself rather than for one who tries to leverage religion to gain votes to make up for his unfulfilled promises. And hence religion and politics should not be mixed.
|Abhishek said: (Jan 24, 2016)|
Even I would say that politics and religion should not be mixed. We are a secular country, and we should respect all religion. Even Donald Trump who is one of the contenders for US President once said that Muslims should not be allowed in the country to live nor should they be given any visa. But we did not find any public reaction there and this is admirable. But in India the case is different. To increase the vote bank, politicians here do allow caste and religion based politics.
|Suraj Anand said: (Jan 24, 2016)|
|Good morning everyone, Myself Suraj Anand.
We are discussing a very good topic that is beneficial for our community. First of all, I would like to say that Religion and politics both have their limitations. It should not mixed. All Religions teach us brotherhood, equality, respect, truths and many more good things. Politics have different qualities, people should understand the difference between both. India is a secular country. Everyone should respect to another religion.
Some politician looks only their vote bank, by which they raise such topic that can hurt the people. In some areas of the country, people should not elect their representative on the basis of caste and color which results in the division of the social community. The country will grow when all people think together.
|Arti said: (Jan 23, 2016)|
|According to me including religion in politics is not good. But now a day the concept of politics changed. In my view, most of the people selects or support political leaders according to their religion, caste etc. This may create a big problem for our country.|
|Nisar said: (Jan 23, 2016)|
|Religion shouldn't be mixed with politics. As it may cause fights in several religions as we have seen in Hindu and Muslim. I would say sorry if I hurt anyone.|
|Kundan said: (Jan 21, 2016)|
|According to me religion should not be use in politics. But it does not mean that Religion is weakness. Religion teaches us how to live, behave with the others. If we go through past ya its right that people vote to the person belongs to his/her religion.
But this strategy is getting changed now. Now people are favorable to those candidates who really sincere and have good vision, knowledge. This is a good sign for our country.
|Rishabh said: (Jan 20, 2016)|
|According to my concern, the religion should not me mixed with politics because in our country most of the people vote the candidates which are belonging to there own caste or religion, so its effect our society and best person are not elected and its harmful for our society.|
|Manoranjan Kumar said: (Jan 13, 2016)|
I think that cats and dogs difference between religion and politics. So shouldn't mix both. Both of play an important role to develop a country. In India many diversities are available. So we shouldn't think about who would be the leader of our country.
|Ritu Bharti said: (Jan 7, 2016)|
|Yes I agree that people should not mix the politics with religion. Because both are two different things or matter. But people mix both because they don't have any other option to choose. In my point of view we don't trust any unknown person, at the time of voting how can we trust anyone.
As we know that now-a days no one every one look for their own profit so, If people choose among them or from their comm at least they have satisfaction that he is among them and when they need help he/she who is chosen by them will help them at least by the name of comm but he/she do.
But if politicians really want to help people then they have to proof to people that they are loyal for us and do not any inequality among peoples. Thanks.
|Aakash said: (Dec 30, 2015)|
|Religion should not be mixed with politics. I agree to the fact that it should not be mixed but it has been the tendency of people to vote for them who are from their own community in expectations that there will be some betterment in their community this tendency is easily seen by the politicians they exploit these and they see these as their vote bank and cash in.
It is essential that people think about the betterment of the country as whole. When they vote they should not vote as an Hindu, Muslim, Jain. But as an Indian. Next time when we vote we should think about the overall impact on everyone.
|Sai said: (Dec 30, 2015)|
India is a country with great diversity in all aspects which include religion also. If we mix religion with politics then in a country like India which have numerous religions then Politics will also be get divided on the basis of religion as what it is happening in case of caste and community" POLITICS AND PEOPLE ARE THE SOUL OF THE COUNTRY".
In some areas of the country people WOULD elect/vote their representative on the basis of caste which results in division of social community.
PARTITION OF INDIA AND CREATION OF PAKISTAN is the best example of mixing politics with religion. If any of my words hurt any individual's feeling then I would like to apologies so sorry.
|Bhagyashree said: (Dec 27, 2015)|
|In my view religion is all about theory but politics is practical. Word religion which we call in Hindi Dharma, means duty, it is real definition of religion not only just sentimental tact or fanaticism. If politicians follow their dharma truly than whole problems can be solved easily.|
|Gupta said: (Dec 27, 2015)|
|According to me religion should not be mixed with politics. Our India is secular country where we all lives together. It's basically a Phycology to think like this but you should think about your your future so selection should be based on the past experience not on basis of religion.|
|Harika said: (Dec 13, 2015)|
|Yes we need to select the politic leader according to his qualities, education, behavior, and so on but not the religion.|
|K.Harika said: (Dec 13, 2015)|
|Hi I am Harika.
Yes I agree with the @Bhanu pratap he says correct sentence about the topic. Really religion didn't need to be in politics and also the some people vote for their religion.
|Pushpendra Narayan said: (Dec 10, 2015)|
|I read all comments. My view about this topic is that religion is a part of our society even daily life. A religious view shows who is the good one.
Having same feeling and respect for all religions leads a good leader.
As we know that science is connected with religion similarly politics can not be isolated from religion.
|Arushi said: (Nov 30, 2015)|
|I agree with the statement that politics mixes with religion. As we all know that people prefer to vote for that candidate who belongs to their community without taking interest in the things like whether the candidate have the ability to fight for their rights or not.
Without knowing his nature or behavior people used to vote for that candidate who belongs to their community. For a person which is going to vote in elections, is it enough that the particular person he vote for belongs to his community?I don't thing so.
According to me, people should vote for that person or party who is able to represent their views in parliament. And the candidate should think about each and every community without any inequality. He should only think about the development of the area under him with honesty.
In my point of view, every Indian should vote with a feeling to be Indian not. With the feeling of Hindu or Muslim. This feeling will definitely can create a big difference in between politics and religion.
Politics should be kept different from religion always. Mixing between politics and religion create a mess in the whole country. As religious morals are helpful in running politics as they show the way how to develop our country. But creating a mess in the country on the name of religion is completely unbearable. Religion should be applied on the politics but in good aspects.
|Tapishnu Samanta said: (Nov 28, 2015)|
|Religion is a person's identity which defines one's beliefs, ideologies and principles. Politics on the other hand consists of activities to govern a country or a region and its people. Hence, politics and religion have a connection even though they appear to be absolutely different from one another.
Politicians, being the chosen leaders, have the favorable scope of communicating with the people where they try to influence them. Politicians can use various religious beliefs and customs of a certain community to gain their support. It is through religious terms that the politicians can have the greatest impact on the minds of all people who was greatly attached to one's own religion.
Great politicians often use religion to create peace, harmony and unity among the people of a region or a country. They try to inculcate good principles and practices among the people so that the governance runs smoothly.
It only depends on the politicians how they would use religion to influence the people. Now, I would give the opportunity to other members of the group to put forward their opinions on this.
|Bhagyashri said: (Nov 26, 2015)|
|Yes, religion should not be mixed with politics. Rather we can say the politician can help all the religion equally grow in the country. As they have the powers, the resources, they can use it positively to maintain the unity and progress of the nation.|
|Aditi said: (Nov 22, 2015)|
|After having read all the comments, I would like to say that just because we have witnessed only the ugly aspect of mixing religion with politics doesn't mean it cannot have a positive outlook.
At home and schools our parents, grandparents and teachers do narrate stories from religious texts to teach their children high moral values and make them know the difference between right and wrong.
Same way our leaders can use religious teachings to guide the masses to a peaceful and tolerant path or at least can give them a noble message ! if done in a correct way "mixing religion with politics" can actually prove to be a blessing in disguise.
|Priyanka said: (Nov 12, 2015)|
|Yes definitely religion should not be mixed with politics. Being India a secular country, people living here belongs to different religion. Now a days Politicians gave their statement on the name of religion to create disturbance, hatred, confusion and enmity among people of different religion. We live in India where all religions has its own importance and equal priority.|
|Saptarsi Ghosh said: (Nov 5, 2015)|
I would like to share my views in this topic. I am agree with you people that politics should not be mixed with religion. The so called leaders think that they just create an issue which is baseless and all people of India support them. We live in country where all religion have same priority.
But I think the Indian people have enough brain to think what is good and what is bad. I don't think they will bother about those stupid think. And already many people are protesting about those kind of activity. So we have to take some effective measures in these kind of barbaric practices.
|Biplob said: (Nov 2, 2015)|
|According to my opinion Politics and religion completely different from each other. We live in country like India where people are from different religion. Religion is the identity of human being, which controls us.
And the politics is the only way which serves our nation. Through politics we developed our nation. In politics we elect different eligible leader so that they work for us to develop our nation and control the human being. So identity means religion should not be mixed with politics.
But now a days we see that politics mixed with religion. Different leaders are stand up from different religion and many of them take d religion as vote bank. During campaigning its seen that they talk various religious issues.
So that they create a egotism towards him as leader from d same caste, tribe simply as the member from the same religion, as a result they vote the particular leader without showing any eligible characters for serving our nation. For that we can't elect good, active leader for serving our nation, so my point of view is that we should not mixed up the religion with politics.
|Priya Agrawal said: (Oct 30, 2015)|
Politics is mixed with the religion from the day our country got independence. Since then it is followed by many riots, destruction, and other events which clearly shows that politics has messed up a lot in the name of religion.
It only depends on us how we choose our representatives in the parliament and further more how those representatives act and behave for the welfare of people.
|Aamin Patel said: (Oct 21, 2015)|
|Politics should not be mixed with religion. It is a job of narrow minded people. When the politicians fight election they represent themselves as a developer of society but when they won they try to rule on the basis of creating religious differences.
And we all know no one can get advantage due to this. This dragging of religion will result into nothing more than destructive results for any religion. The politician should do for what they are chosen open heartily by the public.
|Anjali Maheshwari said: (Oct 14, 2015)|
As per my thinking views I would like to express that politics is some what different then religion. If politics wanna include some that is only welfare practices don't involve such type of topic which create feeling of conflict among people, religion includes the faiths and believes of people for different culture and religions.
We should respect it whole heartedly. Religion is totally different from politics it has peoples hopes and love but politics is for India s economic development. So we should never combine these both in one container keep it seperate.
|Shashank Jain said: (Oct 14, 2015)|
|According to my opinion India is a secular country so religion should not be mixed in politics. Because when we choose our leader on the basis of religion there are thousand of problems are create and many riots take place. In past time Gujarat riot is the result of political empowerment. So we have to make a sensitive to understand that religion and politics are different things.|
|Nausheen Sayed said: (Oct 4, 2015)|
|People who misbehave in politics under the name of religion are the biggest culprits for making a partition between the unity of people. If such people would be removed, then definitely there will be unity among people of all religion. Its not the high class society which is affected but its the middle class and lower class society which is affected at large.|
|Ankit said: (Oct 4, 2015)|
|Yes I strongly agree with the topic. Religion is a set of belief that further become the tradition for that particular community. While politics at the front end is a way of forming government by peoples support. And when the political parties try to get support from the voters by encouraging their particular belief or symbol, we say that they mixed the religion with the politics.
It has a great impact on a country like India because of having a wide range of belief and religion. It create hatred among the people and imbalance in the society. The story of Ayodhya Kand in 1992, Anti-Sikh riot in 1984, and the ethnic cleansing of Kashmiri Pandit are the best example of destruction followed by such practices.
|Tanvi said: (Oct 2, 2015)|
|In India there are many religion but some conflict between them. In older time there is a conflict between Hindu and Muslims by which a civil war take place from not side many people were killed and the country divided into 2 parts.
In opinion there should be a separation of religion from politics by every religion have their own leader by which there is less chance to conflict between 2 religion in the country.
|Nausheen Sayed said: (Oct 2, 2015)|
|Religion is something which is perfect in its way, but politics is something which is never perfect in its way. People often mix up religion with politics and many a times political leaders go on wrong track and then it becomes a big issue. There's no need actually to elaborate a discussion related to politics. Because its full of corruption at least there's no corruption in religion.
So people who do such acts of creating a confusion among people and making a chaos and riots, belonging to politics are actually illiterates and are not bothered about the peace of nation.
|Namrata Shownkeen said: (Sep 30, 2015)|
|Hey friends, politics and religions should not mix as politics need to reflect a common opinion and have to make all decisions keeping in view the mutual benefit of all the people.
If you simply go by the laws in India which is a secular country then definitely as per it the two things should not mix with each other.
|Namrata Shownkeen said: (Sep 29, 2015)|
According to me Religion in politics do not make a sense together if you have a bunch of atheist dodo birds in politics then the whole world is screwed. They will make stupid laws because they have no ethics or morals to guide them.
If religion or politics mix, then hopefully people will have some morals and do some half decent things in office. By this time, all men and women are treated equal and each citizen on individual part should get a chance in politics.
If one is partial with his/her religion that would be a total injustice.
|Rohan said: (Sep 27, 2015)|
|My opinion regarding these topic is that the religion should not mixed with the politics as the politician are taking benefit of its for getting the votes should give the votes by judging the person by education, leadership skill, behaviour and not by the which caste he belongs weather he belong to our caste and all after electing him he should work for all religion he should not work for only a single community or religion weather he can try to improve our country our state our district.|
|Hina Shaikh said: (Sep 25, 2015)|
|In my opinion religion must not mixed with politics. Whenever politics and religions are mixed then the voting decisions of people have been affected. Politics is all about having a good time in present life and religion is about having faith for the future times. There are times when they both run like parallel banks of river which don't meet but always run together.|
|Rakesh Vanam said: (Sep 25, 2015)|
My name is Rakesh Vanam, I totally agree that religion should not be mixed with politics, but in present this scenario is changed, every politician is taking profit of it by means of vote bank. In India, where diversity is main feature where each political party has its own vote bank politics and this should be stopped and people should vote and elect those people who actually wants to do something for the common people and for the development of the country.
A person should be selected as a leader by judging by his/her work and by his/her good leadership qualities and the most important thing a person or people should not be discriminated on the basis of cast, religion or sex.
|Sushil said: (Sep 24, 2015)|
|Hi guys as topic is Religion should not be mixed with Politics I think that religion and politics both are different-different things. We are not supposed to amalgamate. If we mix politics with religion than it can be lethal for Indians so in my views instead of saying we are Hindu, we are Sikh we have to keep in mind that above all we are INDIANS. Some politicians may have forgotten this fact resulting we face riots, conflicts etc.|
|Hina Shaikh said: (Sep 22, 2015)|
I agree its right politics should not mix with religion because India is a country of different different religion. And I think so politician should to be concentrate on developing our country. Politics its not at all group of corrupt people in which also such type of people involved those are really involved to developed our country.
|Rohit said: (Sep 20, 2015)|
|Really religion should not be mixed with politics because it may give comfort to one's community but the other's have to face problem.
One latest Ex : The Meatban in Maharashtra due to it other are suffering and some politicians are going on strike. Instead of it they should look out the other important problem.

After watching the situation of "Meat ban" now I think that religions should not be mixed with politics because a politician may do good for one's community by which other community feels offended.
India is secular country here every religion should respect every other religion and understand the sentiments of each other. If this is done then there will be no need of Politics related to any religion otherwise there are chances of riots.

|To me politics and religion are so different. I mean originally some time in politics you will have to say something that isn't real and opposes to the truth in someways you will have to play roles while the nature of religion is being honest and trustful and if you engaged them there will a controversial situation and this case leads to weakening people's religious belief.|

|It is sad that we can't mix religion with politics! Actually we are too narrow minded to understand the depth of religions. Religions can be a boon for the politics but politicians take religions as means of votes. We should look for merit in candidates and not his religion.|
|Neha Saxena said: (Sep 2, 2015)|
|Definitely, Religion should not be mixed with Politics because in a country like India we have almost every kind of religion for which in India there is unity in diversity. For instance, if I am a Hindu and the other is Sikh, besides this we together are known as Punjabi and moreover an Indian.
But if we add the politics with this, the consequences would be like the riots of 1984. Politicians consider the religion as the means of their votes.
In order to avoid such a problem make the roots of our unity so strong so that no one can make discrimination and use religion as a part of Political Game.

|One of the key things we have learnt from our history is that there should always be a separation between church and state. The state should in no way endorse nor suppress a religion.
Freedom to religion both for and from is a fundamental right of a citizen in a secular democratic society. History has shown us again and again that if they meet, a section of the people will rise over the rest and commit crimes against humanity. Not a single country where there is no separation of church and state is free from these problems.
There is a simple way to eradicate this problem. A new law needs to be enacted which bans political parties from inclining with or oppose any particular religious community. Additional laws for investigations etc. Must be enacted as well.

My view is also similar to others, religion and politics should not be mix together it brings inequality among the people. A common person elect a person to serve all the people of different religion not for a particular religion and also to serve the nation. But to bring this change, firstly the thoughts of people should be changed they should give equal importance to other religion also.
|Rakesh said: (Aug 26, 2015)|
According to me religion should not be mixed with politics because:
1. Religion and Politics are two different words, how can we mix both with each other.
2. Last thing, now a days politics has alive for religious but not vice versa.
|Sanjay Rider said: (Aug 22, 2015)|
|There is a separation of religion from politics because there are conflict take place through religion in the country.
In India there are many religion but some conflict between them. In older time there is a conflict between Hindu and Muslims by which a civil war take place from not side many people were killed and the country divided into 2 parts.
In opinion there should be a separation of religion from politics by every religion have their own leader by which there is less chance to conflict between 2 religion in the country.
|Karthik said: (Aug 18, 2015)|
My opinion on the given topic is one should never look for religion of the candidate at the time of voting and the candidate participating in elections should not take the name of religion as this means that he/she is against the democracy one should should look at the candidate's capabilities and character.
|Rahul Yadav said: (Aug 13, 2015)|
In my opinion politics should not be mixed with religion because it can damage country's unity as well as its peace.
India is the most diversified country in the world, we have people of almost every religion in our country and still we are living in peace as compared to other countries of the world, but due to politicians political agenda for getting vote they are dragging the religion as a tool for making votes in their count.
So these things casteism or banking votes by these means should be stopped and people should also be aware about this as to whom they should choose, they shouldn't chose a party on the basis of their caste or religion but on the basis of their work.
|Aparna Bavalsingh said: (Aug 11, 2015)|
According to me religion is all about following and practicing ones own believes and spiritual values. It has nothing to do with politics. Politics is all meant for the welfare and social satisfaction of a nation's citizen. Both run as parallel banks of river which do not meet each other but just run together.
|Ritesh Kumar Panda said: (Jul 31, 2015)|
|Good morning all of you.
According to my point of view the religion in India should not be mixed with politics, I want to lay my points by saying that each and every political parties have some or the other political agenda through which they use religion and Castetism, whenever the election commission of India announces the voting date all the political parties engages in collecting the vote banks from the minority presents in our country and never thoughts about its cons and probes which must need to be taken into the account of the commission of India and only strict regulations can make it possible.
|Kranthi Kiran said: (Jul 27, 2015)|
|According to me, religion should not mixed with politics. Politics serve the people belong to different religion not serve the people for particular religion. If religion is mixed with politics, it would create difference among various religious groups.|
|Arvind said: (Jul 21, 2015)|
|Political parties and religion and some thing in common and that is make people satisfied, work for betterment of society, bring peace and harmony and many more. Religious parties are doing this great job from time immemorial.
In scriptures every kind of knowledge is provided and it has worked many a times. So if political leaders take advice and suggestions from spiritual leaders and follow the spirituality, then can achieve success. The nation will flourish.
|Deepthi Sri said: (Jul 17, 2015)|
|According to me, mixing the religion with the politics, means of doing real cruel politics. As because of unemployment, partialities people's are getting separated away from each other.
It's true that religion must be disliked from politics because it affects that the administration system of our country. As said by Gandhi Hindus &Muslims of India are not two nations.
Those whom god has made one, man will never be able to divide. Its true not only for Hindus &Muslims but is same for all religions.
|Vishwa said: (Jul 3, 2015)|
|There's no doubt that anyone would have objection with not mixing religion with politics. I support the same view.
Though that is not we come to see in our daily lives. Each political party has it's policy of gathering so called "Vote Banks". Some target the minorities like SC/ST, Muslims, while others target the majority. This further creates the gap between the majority and minority in India, which already is a sensitive issue.
In present day, there are much rounds of gossiping of one party favoring the specific religious extremists. While there may not be any proof to back these talks up, but in the minds of common Indians, it does create a sense of division.
With each extremist associating itself with political parties and taking an advantage of the "Freedom of Speech", speaks ill about other's beliefs. Which in turn are eventually dealt with by the political parties by issuing apology statement.
This can be avoided if religion is not mixed with politics.
|Pradip Dhokiya said: (Jul 3, 2015)|
|Religion should not be mix with politics because we know that India is a secular country and secularism means religion and politics both are different thing so why we mix up two things each other.
And other thing is religion is a private matter we can not mix mix with politics and if we choose our leader on the basis of religion he/she adopt more benefit and power at the name of religion so he/she do more war at the name of religion which actually we can see in Arab country and that is wrong so religion and politics should not be mixed with each other.
|Shashank Gupta said: (Jul 3, 2015)|
I completely agree that religion should not be mixed with politics.
If it happens it would create difference among various religious groups and due this situation like riots, war can also take place in extreme situation.
India being a democratic country supports and allows every citizen to follow its own religion but if it is mixed with politics for merely just getting votes for its party can create a devastation situation. So it must avoided specially in a country like INDIA where so many tradition of people lives.
|Nationalist said: (Jun 19, 2015)|
|If religion is mixed with politics. It do not make any harm every religion teaches peace, unity, harmony, etc. I think Gandhiji also mixed the politics with religion. He had imagination and believed that India will become "Ramayana" if we have politics and religion in parallel. I don't think religion should not mixed with politics.
Faith and religion may go together either it is secular country or not. All Indians do believe in there faith. There should be secularism not Sickilarism. I do not believe in communal political I only want that good things present in every faith politics and politicians should adopt that for development of healthy & prosperous country like yoga is adopted and there are many more things.
|Shreeja said: (Jun 15, 2015)|
|Its truly said that terrorists unite us while religion divides us politics always steps into pictures, there have been several riots say the Gujarat riots which have been happening in the past. They show empowerment of one political party over the other and their followers who follow them blindly based on their religion indulge in avoidable violence.
This has been happening since several years, issues over building of a certain religions worship place has always lead to a heated and violent debate. We must solve such issues peacefully and wisely. More importantly in unison. I firmly agree that religion and politics weaken integrity due to blinded biasing.
|Aamish Siddiqui said: (Jun 13, 2015)|
|Hello I am Aamish Siddiqui.
According to me politics should not mixed with religion because both politics and religion are different thing. In India there are some minority religion like Christan, Sikh etc if politics mixed with religion then they will have to face lot of problems. We should choose our politicians on the basis of ability character not on religion.
|Basit said: (Jun 9, 2015)|
|Religion can't be mixed with politics at all. Religion and politics are two different concepts, in India there are many religions and most among them are minorities e.g, Muslims Sikhs etc., Hinduism is major. So if religion will be mixed minorities will suffer. So people should not choose politicians on religious bases.|
|Harmony said: (Jun 3, 2015)|
|It's not wrong if politics is mixed with religion, if that is taken in a broad and open minded way. We have religious minded people in our country. They are God loving and God fearing too!
And religion is very broad and vast, if only we understood. All religions teach peace, harmony, unity, it is for the betterment of mankind. Politics does the same job nearly.
Our narrow minds fail to understand the purpose of religion, that is why we want to keep it away from politics.
|Travers said: (Jun 2, 2015)|
|Religion often plays an important part in elections often the sentiment's of one religion against the other is kept as a means of botheration which ultimately hits the conscience of voters. This thing needs to be squeezed as per the development of society.|
|Vasanti said: (May 30, 2015)|
|I support the above opinions expressed by my friends. I think politics and public relation like mom which not think whether her baby is boy or girl. Politics and religions should not mixed. I must say that their is no relation between them they are independent to each other. Politics show the persons leadership quality weather religion show the unity.|
|Shivangi said: (May 28, 2015)|
|Simply put!! I would like to say that religion and politics should not be mixed. Even though both are for welfare and betterment of people. Where religion guides us, politics is important for development of a nation and its people. But in recent times, political parties have been mixing both as the famous saying goes we don't cast vote. We vote our caste! People we should be aware of the fact that selection of a candidate to a position of power should not be done based on caste but on his honesty, capability and merit.
These days, politician try to make rich their vote banks by appeasing people by dividing them on religious and communal lines, inflicting hatred for other caste, maligning other religions. They have been selling this for long and its time that we stop buying all this.
Rather we should be piratical enough to vote for someone who is actually concerned with the welfare and development of our nation and not because he is a Jaat, Punjabi, Muslim or Hindu. We live in a land of diversity and its time we begin to respect each other n hold humanity utmost. Probably then, there will be no communal riots and blood shed n peace will be established. We should believe in unity in diversity and should not give a chance to anyone to divide and rule us!
|Arjay said: (May 28, 2015)|
|I agree, but I think the topic should be Politics should not be mixed with religion because I supposed that the subject here is the Politics. Anyway, like what I've said, I agree because if politics is mixed with religion, my judgement is always based on my beliefs or the teachings of what our Pastor, Priests or Guru is.
But rather, politicians should be based on what written on the law or the rules and regulations of the country/state to have a fair judgement to everyone regardless of what his/her religion.
|Sidharth said: (May 25, 2015)|
|There is nothing big deal that we all know India is a secular state and any form of religious mitigation in political system by the leaders will harm the entire balance and will question our secularism. So it is important to monitor whether there is a mix of religion in a country which is equal for every section of the society I would die hard to support this issue.|
|Nutan Gaikwad said: (May 25, 2015)|
|We all know what happens when politics gets mix with religion. One great example is separation of Pakistan from India.|
|Brandon said: (May 17, 2015)|
According to me, religion is not a great issue, whether he is a Hindu or Muslim or Christian or Sikh etc. So, according to my opinion, religion shouldn't be mixed with politics, In fact politician shouldn't interfere any form of religion as India is a secular country and every citizen has a right to treat them equally and not by ill-treating them especially when his religion is minority like Muslim, christian etc. rather they should always be a broad minded then only the country will become advanced. Only by infrastructure, development is not enough.
|Satwant said: (May 14, 2015)|
I agree with that politics and religion are two different things, we shouldn't mixed both of them. In other country they are not mixed that's why they developed very fast as compare to India. If Politician win the election he has to forgot the religion and he has to developed the over India in future we also developed as compare to other country.
|Jayanta Mistry said: (May 10, 2015)|
I think both religion & politics are same in India. Because in India have different types of religion as well as politics also different types of party.
|Adarsh Raj said: (May 9, 2015)|
|I agree with above statement that religion should not be mixed with politics but nowadays leaders mix the religion with politics that is incorrect.|
|Aman Singhania said: (May 9, 2015)|
On one side before elections, they will shake hands, hug everyone to gain votes but after winning they will do some work and that too only for the people following their (politician's) religion. How can you serve your nation in this way?
|Ntpc said: (May 9, 2015)|
|In my honest opinion I would like to say that politics should be kept aside from religion b/c our politician are supposed to do work for betterment of each religion then only our can become a developed country. As we know that our constitution provide equal right to every one to get benefit of national prosperity and growth, irrespective of their cast and religion.
More over we know that their is people of many religion reside in India so disparity in the name of religion's not going to be in the interest of the country b/c without every ones development counties development not possible.
In India about 78% Hindu, 15% Muslims, 2.5% Christian, 8% Buddhism so there is lots of diversity in the Indian demography in terms of religion and it has been our culture and identity from ancient time so its responsibility of our leader to preserve this identity by ensuring growth and development of all citizen irrespective of their religion.
|Rahul said: (Apr 23, 2015)|
I agree with above statement because religion and politics are two different things. But we have seen that leaders try to get votes through religious practices. They provide say land or anything beneficial for the groups in order to get back votes from them religion is for improving one's thoughts and lifestyle, but politics is for the society.
|Kavi said: (Apr 22, 2015)|
|A global 2012 poll reports that 59% of the worlds population is religious, 23% are not religious, and 13% are atheists and a religion is a collection of belief system, cultural system.
Religion should not be mixed with politics
