Religion should never be mixed up with politics. A secular country is the one which treats all its citizens with equal respect irrespective of the religion. A political leader should be one who is able to resolve the conflicts between its people. Eg. If gita, bible or quran are kept inside a library then they don't fight among themselves. Its the people who fight. So in a secular country one should never mix religion with politics.

Religion should never mixed with politics. AS we are common people we can not give direct awareness to the politicians so, we the students have to give awareness to them.

Indirectly by giving awareness to the society for the development for our family (country).

We should ask to our self do we need to mix any religion with the character of a politician or we are so weak to understand the manipulation of few leaders who they think are protecting their community identity Instead, they are making their community member feel defenseless. It is very sensitive topic to discuss and but very easy to work on!

Religious mixing is however a bad thing in itself but there cannot be any democratic country/state where religion in not mixed with politics. Any political party of any country/state can not have vote bank if it does not mix with religion. Everyone wants a homogeneous society but they do nothing to do so. Even Gandhiji's Dream of Homogeneous society cannot be fulfilled. If this thing happens it will be nothing then a miracle.

Definitely not. Our politicians are very cunning & they always use religion as their weapon for vote banking. One should know that all the religions divide people & division is conflict. Never the less our politicians even more divided people in the name of not only just religion but also in the name of caste, creed, language, reservation for minority, majority etc etc simply cunning. There is no social justice just because of this.

I think religion should not be mixed with politics because politicians are like a doctor who should treat each and every patients equally without any differentiation. Same applies to the general public as well, here if patients or general public want their disease to be cure properly or suppose he or she is in the last stage of cancer then he will not think whether he is being cured by hindu or muslim or sikh or christian etc. Doctor, what he will think is that his or her disease will be cure as soon as possible.

Therefore I would like to say that politics and general public relation is like relation as between doctor and patients.

My opinion is that a religion shouldn't be mixed with politics. As India is a secular country each and every citizen must be treated equaLLY. The job of a leader is to solve the conflicts in a peaceful manner irrespective of the religion he belongs and to give justice to people of the country.

I my opinion religion is like lemon in milk, as when we added only one drop of milk into milk then complete milk will become curd, same as politicians consider some matter related to religion than their complete work will waste. We should understand that India is a secular country where we find no of religion and is also a democratic country. Politicians are the person who represent our country in world and lead our country in all fields, so that person should be secular, intelligent, kind so that he can understand the situation without consider religion. We should also change our mind set first and first consider your self as Indian not as hindu, muslim, etc.

Gender bias is of course a big evil in our society as it has been continues from ancient time in India. Women are considered to be less capable as compared to men which is leading to many problem in the countries such as female foeticide. Because the parents are having sex determination of their child and kill their child if they come to know that she is female.

So maximum opportunity should be provided to the women as it could be best done by providing reservation for women as it could enhance the women the scope for their future. They could have the hope that they are given a passage which could often lead to their success.

So its important to have women quota because womens now a days are contributing a lot to our nation. Most of the women are ceo's, ministers, country head of many reputed bank. Kiran bedi the first Indian IPS officer she is of course an inspiration to all ladies.

The only thing is that people need to change their way of looking and avoid male dominance in the society.

Religion in politics of India is not a new thing. Since time immoral we have seen that religion play a major role in governance. Whether it's the time of Chandragupta Maurya or the contemporary politics. Indian secularism is pseudo secularism, where a politician can praise one religious community and make other communities cursed for them. If something is useful for us or for anyone than it will not be disappeared. Same things happens in the politics also, where religion become an useful instrument to win the elections.

And we can't say that particular party is communal and rest others are secular. We saw riots on the basis of caste, religion, language, ethnicity, region all over the India. But what we can do is not to bluffed by the politician and their agendas. One should check the history of the political parties and also see that does that party fulfilled the policies and schemes mention in their manifestos. How is the relations of India with it's neighboring countries and the world during the party's rule. And many more other things that should be kept in mind while choosing the representative from the area.

India-Land of diverse cultures, backgrounds, religions, castes. God is one but its we who have accepted god in different forms with the help of religions. So, its we who have divided the nation. Politicians are not aliens they are also come under people of India. So, we are the future of India, we should not support these people nor we should allow such kind of people to perform such hideous activities in politics.

Divide & Rule policy implemented by the British in India but these weeds are still being cropped for the petty benefits. Nor these people divide in the name of God but the also divide religions into sub religion. So its we who should watch our steps while taking the baits from these religious groups & politicians. We are our own Mahatma Gandhi of our life whose purpose is to walk on path of truth.

From my point of view religion should not be intermixed in politics. Our country is a vast nation having many religions. A party when in power should think of welfare of people as the citizens of country and not on basis of caste, creed or religion.

Religion has often been used to outrage strikes and public disorders across country. So developing the country maintaining its sovereignty and integrity should be the basic aim of politicians. As we know "together we stand divided we fall". So its important for a developing country like ours to develop as a single powerful unit and avoid caste, creed religions etc: to hamper our development.

The biggest mistake that most of the people do during the elections is that they choose the leader who belongs to their caste or community. The politicians in their greed to win betray innocent people by talking about a specific religion. Each and every religion teaches the same thing that is to respect all other religion. Even god has no religion. So there is nothing to do with religion in politics. Mixing religion with politics will only lead to disharmony in the nation. So politics should follow the norm of 'unite and develop' instead of 'divide and rule'.

Religion is way to god and politics is a way to development, i.e. just opposite and can't be mixed.

Simply one can't progress if someone believes in only one religion, i.e.if so happens development will be restricted to only one religion, which will cause communal riots, feeling of bias.

Moreover its a weakness of us if politics are encouraging us to do vote on basis of religion and if we do so its doubts our integrity and to overcome this we have to first remove this type of mentality in our circles.

Religion is very sensitive, intense and very highly personal thing whereas politics is thing where opposition party, common man can talk whatever they want in the opposition of the particular party.

So talking against any religious party is talking against any particular religion, and then this leads to riots, anger and hatred towards each other, instability in the country hence religion in politics should be avoided.

The uniqueness of our country's secularism is getting destroyed by the politicians through their caste - communal views. Our country is respected all over the world not for only secularism but also for equal respect for all religions. Its really pathetic to see and witness that our politicians are just trying to instigate the religious issues and cash on their vote banks.

Religion is something very subjective and individual to a person. Its not more than life but surely guides us a way to live. But what surpasses everything is our identity as an INDIAN. We are hindus or muslims after that. The day we stop voting for people on the basis of their work, performance and caliber and not on their caste, political scenario will change which is exactly what happened in Lok Sabha elections -2014, where people from all castes and communities have shown faith in Mr. Narendra Modi.

Yes I agree religion should not be mixed with politics. Actually these two are separate things which is mostly used by the politicians for their benefit not for the society. Mostly Indian people are emotional they cast their vote to the candidate of his own religion. They think that they may help when they are in problems but after elections no one care the people. So people should give their votes to the candidate by his commitment, intention and work.

Religion is a pure drop of water we should not mix it with the politics as this may lead to a poisonous mixture which can lead us to the unwanted outcome. Thus so as to maintain the balance of the system we should not include the religion with politics.

I completely agree with this statement. As now a days we see our politician win election on the name of caste and religion and suppress the real matter that is development. These kind of politician mainly target on illiterate public as they better know that an educated people is not going to cast his vote on the basis of caste and religion. But the illiterate people think that if he is from my caste then he will support me. And after voting he finds himself fooled. So in my opinion religion or caste should not be mixed with politics.

Religion is devotion, emotions and feelings that gives us the way to communicate with the almighty. And politics is only a competition for gaining power. Both the terms are far different from one another. How can we as a citizen vote a person on basis of his religion. Religion has no concern with politics. Pick any religion in India all of them say the same thing "that humanity is the superior". Instead of checking the religion f the candidate check on whether he is a honest human or not, does he have the power to lead, to motivate, to guide.

According to my point of view religion can be mixed with politics according to different situations and different circumstances. For example religion can be mixed with politics in countries where people are more religious and have single religion only say Saudi Arabia. But this can't be true in case of India because India have more diversity than any other nation although Indian people are very religious. India is not single religion nation. According to our constitution India is secular country. But its people constitute of different religions. As a nation needs unity among its people if it really desires to grow and to become a strong nation. Which is not possible if any particular religion prevails in politics. It would definitely hamper the growth of nation and may devastate the unity as we have witnessed in Delhi sikh riots or Gujarat riots. Rights of minorities are equally important as of a majority group.

Religion and politcs never meant to be together in India. Unfortunately we see that religion is mixed with Indian politics to a great extent. We the new generation should stop this trend for growth, development and unity of our great nation. Thanks.

Hello everyone in my opinion religion should be kept apart from politics as mixing it with politics means pouring petrol in fire. Politics can be a fire if not handled properly can create many riots among people with the involvement of religion. Can the we all have past experiences of this.

The case in ayodhya is a perfect example of how politicians were playing with the emotion of people. The country can never be changed from developing to developed till there is use of religion in politics. So its the responsibility of every individual to keep religion out of politics and use the democracy in a positive manner by electing the one who treats the people of India as indians.

I think religion should not be mixed with politics otherwise it will produce a disastrous effect on our life. If we will look at the history we will find that it has already produced a much more disastrous effect on our country and life. There are a lots of riots has already happened in our country behind which the main reason was the politicization of some religious issue. Each religion has its own value and we have no rights to divide the voters on the basis of their religion. That's why I think that religion should not be mixed with politics.

We should not mix religion with politics, both are different in their perspectives. First of all we are human beings, Every human being basic needs are food, clothing & shelter, then why this question of religion will arise in politics, we have to elect the persons who will understand people's problem not the one who is from upper caste.

Even now also people are voting the person's who are from their caste, not at all understanding what they will do after electing them. In order to have change in our political system, first we have to support or elect the person who is striving for the development of nation, not for the development of same caste people.

Religion and politics are 2 different things. But politicians in our country do this to gain more vote, in other words they play with peoples emotions for their benefit. If they truly want to do some good for our country then they need not to blend religion and politics together. They should treat all people of the country as one. But instead they try to collect votes by promising people that they will do this or that for their religion, which is totally wrong. We do not select them for doing something for a particular religion, we want them to do good for all the citizens of India. So, according to me mixing politics and religion is totally wrong.

It's a concern when one looks at countries like Malaysia for an example were the majority faith now dictates to the others in the country of different faiths what words they can use and have complete control over others through the government who is more than happy to go along to secure their power in office.

Politics of religion is a blow to the secular status of our country.

Politicians playing politics of such form and their victory are questions on our secularism.

Religion is a sensitive issue for any individual and any talks in favour of one particular religion can trigger communal tensions and riots which hamper the functioning of law and order in the state.

Every religion teaches people to be tolerant to other religions and any politician using religion as an agenda only displays his intolerance towards other faiths and his failure as a person.

Politicians must focus on development agendas to achieve good governance and.

Good afternoon to everyone, Religion and politics are two great things one is beliefs of the people in particular religion and the latter is very important for the development of our country.

The main aim of politics is to develop the entire nation and if any politician using religion in politics clearly shows that he is considering one particular religion which is not going to help the country to develop fully.

Because of this hatred among the people of our country increases and becomes reason for many other problems.

So if politician really want to develop our country then he has to consider everyone as his own religion.

Changing its demographics adversely. Politics of secularism is good only until it doesn't hurt national interest. Terrorism is such an issue.

Hello All,

Religion should not be mixed with politics. When you are in politics and particularly when you are a leader you cannot isolate yourself from serm the people of different religions and not serve them. You enter into politics only to serve the people, you cannot do that by saying I will only serve the people of my religion. Provoking hatred and belittling other religions is totally unacceptable. I personally feel that having a belief in a religion is okay, but enforcing your beliefs on others isn't good. To be a good leader you need to consider your job as your religion which will take you forward.

Religion is a set of beliefs and principles which directs mankind to evolve himself for a better tomorrow. Though the preachers may vary there can be only minor differences in the principles between one and other religions. The problem arises when an individual ignores some of the principles, such as not treating/viewing followers of other religions as an equal human being.

Thats why Politics came into picture a mechanism to govern a nation or a defined area. But the politicians instead of serving the nation or the people coming under his purview, works only for the betterment of his own community people. Even worse some politicians are dirupting the communal harmony. Common man should elect an individual based on his virtues, values, ability to serve the people. Not on the basis of his religion or caste.

According to me to keep these to things separate from each other then there must be initiative from both the leaders and people because unless and until we get the leader who is secular in his work not only in his speeches these two things will not be separated. Because when leaders supports only to particular part of society because of their cast similarity simply only that part or segment of the society make him their hero and naturally other people blame the same person.

Hello friends.

In my point of view, I think that if we will stop thinking about religion and stop making nuisance of other religion then no political person can divide us on the basis of religion.

We should step ahead to make unity of our nation. If we will unite then No politics will mix with religion.

Hi friends.

My opinion in this issue is different. Religion make persons perfect in many aspect of their life where politics is a social necessities for personal as well as social development. I can represent both as two sides of a coin. It always looks politics are not being practiced as individual religion said. If our elected politicians do their politics what their religion tale, the integral growth of country will fast like some developed countries. Yes, better and detail understanding of religion tale is a key parameter in this case.

Hence, Mixing up both religion and politics will boost the social well being as well as the growth of the country.

Yes, definitely religion should not be mixed with politics. In India, it is a common thing to find political parties targeting a particular community as part of vote bank politics. By doing so, such parties forget that India is a secular country and thus good politics would be coming up with solutions to make the country a haven for everybody irrespective of caste, creed, religion etc.

Thus, the parties instead of using religion should rather focus on values. Also, I believe that the voters should also realize what is ultimately good for them and hence, the should not believe the false promises that these parties make.

I agree that politics and religion should be very far apart.

In my point of view politics is a dirty game as we all know that and the consequence of the conspiracies in politics has been disastrous. Now when religious gets mixed with the politics as in India we know that religion is a very sensitive issue for a person could become even more dangerous.

Now a days the politicians cast votes on the basis of the religion and Indians are so biased by their caste that they even vote to the person of the same caste. The results of religion mixed politics have lead to riots, disturbing the harmonic peace of the country or a particular area several times.

The people need to be awaken that they should rise above religion and vote and ignore dirty politics of the politicians on religion criteria.

They should be unbiased when they enter into politics. Then only we can expect the nation to develop.

I believe religion should not mixed with politics. I think everybody say yes on this matter. But as we devoted to religion, so in every step religion sentiment has to come. In 1947, our country divided based on religion, riots took place based on religional issues, not only that if we are going to sign up in bharatmatrymoni or shaadi.com, there is an option-which religion you are.

Now if we really think that politics and religion should not mix, then why we always looking for some quota in every field. We all understand these all are to gain the people's valuable goal. But we never take any stand against this. So, I think politics mixed with religion by our effort and attitudes.

According to me religion should not be mixed with politics because the country like ours which is culturally very rich. Based on our different religions. And the sentiments of its people attached to every religion cannot be overlooked just to win the vote.

Politician often try to allure people or win their votes by bringing castes and communalism in between which may result in communist violence which is not good for our country and for its integrity. So in my opinion politics and religion are two different parameters and they should be kept apart.

Religion has nothing to do with politics and vice versa. But now-a days, our great leaders are using these facts for their own interest. They always try to motivate the innocent common people on the basis of caste, creed or religion.

They influence the innocent people that I am from your caste, please vote in favour of me. I will work for your betterment. But the truth is just otherwise. They only use this fact for their own interest. Once the election is over, they don't care for them.

This kind of facts are hampering the nation's growth. Our's is a secular country. And it written in the preamble of our constitution to treat everyone irrespective of caste, creed, religion and sex.

As per my views are concerned, religion and politics should not be mingled. Religion and politics are different aspects that can't be seen with the same eye. Religion is a far more concern topic in India and politics is just a game which never see anything. To acquire power, one should not use the beliefs of people. Politics may get dirty but religion must not.

On the basis of religion only, some mentally disabled do crime and make others also inspire to do the same.

We have done this mistake once at the time of our independence and should not be repeated again. At that time also some have merged this topic and as a consequence of it, a large part of our country went as Pakistan. Some naturist make religion as a way to fulfill their own needs on the behalf of their religion, which creates violence and riot in the country itself.

It leads to the most wicked evil, terrorism, which has evolved as a major threat to India's integrity, every state is suffering from insurgency. It not only detriment many lives but also have an adverse affect on property, infrastructure, climatic changes etc. It looses our economical condition and creates rampage all over.

Man can be mastered by fear or faith. Combination of fear of power and faith in religion proved good for politics. Because of religion mixed with politics, the political parties don't work properly. As most of the times party wins on the basis of the religion of the people living there in that particular region. They make it as a prime concern to win the votes. In our country, it normally happens that a person will vote the leader of his own community, which may lead to the wrong decisions. Here the leaders also know that our people can be easily influenced by their religion, this is because of illiteracy, they just don't think about who can be the right person to take their views and needs forward.

On one side we say to diminish all the evils like corruption, terrorism etc. And on the other we ourselves are favouring these somewhere. It also effect the normal work of the people.

On its basis, some leaders promises to provide reservation to a particular community as a result others also come on strike and want theirs to be also reserved. It not only creates destruction of the public but also of property, a huge loss of transport, exchange, economic losses etc.

If our own people will do like this, it will encourage other nations and they will try to suppress us. If these things happen in the country inside, it will also influence the internal relation of different states.

The politics should be reformed. This can be only done by changing the mindset of the people and politicians. The younger should take the charge to lead India with only feeling to serve the country. Politicians should raise the problems of people like illiteracy, inflation, corruption, development of infrastructure etc. So we should think for the whole nation not for a particular community to enrich our nation.

We must understand first the basic meaning of both politics as well as religion.

POLITICS BASICALLY EVOLVED FOR BETTERMENT OF OUR COUNTRY. Religions are created so that people in the particular community will behave with particular manners and values. Which means Religion teaches the person good thought and how to make the life beautiful. We all know that nowadays many politicians are not working for our nation but they are working for money and power.

Whenever any person becomes a minister or a government servant he must think only about INDIA and its improvement. Politician should not think about his or others religion.

Nowadays Politicians are using "religion" for their progress in very smart way and common man is facing many problems because of it. So I think everyone should feel very proud about our country then only politics and religion will not cause any hazard to at least common man.

As in many foreign countries and in older India also the politics was in the hands of people whose religion was in majority. They deal the Politics as their personal property.

Religion and politics are pole apart as the former depends on an individual's believes in a supernatural power that governs human's life and destiny and latter is just a system of management a country follows to manage its resources which in turn give power to some individuals.

However unfortunately religion is mixed with politics everywhere.

Be it Hitler who took several lives just because these people are not of his race or be it the mughal emperor Aurangzeb who destroyed many temples and erected mosque in place of that and forced people to follow islam or the britishers who divided India in parts just on the basis of religion.

Religion has been from years a favourite topics of leaders to enhance their vote bank. They use sentiments of public and convert them into votes which in turn cause many fights, riots and enhance terrorism in the country and finally a feeling of hatred comes between people which destroys our national integrity.

However people should understand that politicians are just playing with public emotions for their self benefit. No religion in this world says to hate any human just because of their religion. So we should follow what our religion says not what the politicians are saying.

In my opinion, "religion should not at all be mixed with politics" because we live in a secular country, which respects every religion and give freedom to every individual to follow its own religion. Thus, India is a place of many religions living together and if politics be mixed with religion, then it will only lead to fights, chaos and destruction. Politics forms the leader of the country, so if it got mixed with religion, the voting would rather turn out to be religious fighting, and selecting the person of a particular religion, inspite of an eligible person.

2ndly, religion is a practice which people follow as they trust in a particular way of praying to their god and this should not come in between social issues, because inplace of giving value based politics, it will lead to havoc.

Yes religion should be mixed with politics so these sections can equally worship their god,

If you are a Hindu and you fell in love with a Pakistani girl, religion never allows you to marry but politics does.

And if we talk about votes more than half of the population is illiterate they don't know goods and bad so they do however they are directed by the fake leaders and their bodyguards or whatever you call them.

The decision in politics should be transparent and should not depend on the religion. There should be no conspiracy while taking the decisions. Thats a straight forward harm to the common man society, country. Religion is something which is totally different from the politics. But there should also be no discrimination between the people taking the religion as the reason. Every citizen of INDIA should respect every other religion.

Indian people are highly emotional as far as their religion is concerned.
