Hi friends,

Religion should never be mixed with politics. Religion is our faith&thoughts. Don't let the politicians to rule you. Let them rule our country. We have a lock named leadership and we have a set of keys named politicians. Use the right key to select the leader.

Lets select the true leader who says I am an Indian, not the politician who says I am a Hindu, Sikh, Muslim.

Thank you friends.

Hi friends. Our constitution consist Integrity, sovereignty and secularism in its 44th amendment. Then how can be a particular religion blend with politics, if we or any leader of this country blends religion with politics then it would be violation of constitution by all mean. On one hand we took oath of integrity, sovereignty and secularism of this country on other we be the part of riots in all over country.

Politicians plays with our religion emotions in the name of RAM MANDIR or ZIYAHAD which helps them to collect vote during election. Our country full with young population so it be keep in our mind we should separate ourselves from such types of thoughts or politicians. Jai hind jai bharat.

I think it's been well documented that religion and politics do not mix for all the reasons posted here and more.

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. One can find many examples all over that show the result of religion interfering in government.

And the results of intolerance and discrimination of those who happen not to follow a particular faith.

Religion and politics are totally different things. But the mixture of the two give rise to dangerous situation. Well India has witnessed communal riots many a time.

So I think we should never trust a political leader who tries to separate peoples on the basis of religion just for his personal benefits.

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.

This can get them votes from people of all religions and communities.

As I think that religion is purely the people who formed it and it brings a mans self confidence by believing his own god. But the politics is a organization where it brings protection, to implement his rights in the society and to bring the whole nation as a developed nation, so religion and politics can't be same as a whole.

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.

Thanks to you all.

Politics and casteism are two sides of a coin. While tossing a coin in any of the circumstances you can't get both of them simultaneously.

1) Due to caste politics we are dividing ourself and they are just simply taking benefit of that.

2) Due to this workers of the ruling party were doing crimes.

3) They are also ensuring reservation for their caste peoples in govt colleges.

4) And most importantly they are continuously using us in this dirty politics.

Yeah, it's cent percent correct that religion shouldn't be mixed with politics but it becomes necessity when it raises a big question mark on nation's original identity. Changing its demographics adversely. Politics of secularism is good only until it doesn't hurt national interest. Terrorism is such an issue. Why are eyebrows being raised over batla house encounter?, Just for sake of appeasement of few people. So there should be a distinction should on what sort of topics religious interest should be brought in politics.

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.

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.

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, 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.

Sometimes we choose these politicians, because they are in our caste. I think we have to make ourselves clear first. Then take action against it, and rectify it.

In my view "religion should not mixed with politics". Because religion and politics both are different things. In a democratic country every religion should take part in politics to choose a appropriate leader for them. If politics will do by taking the religion then a lot of problem arise in our society. Which will create inequality between the religion, formation of separate states according to religion, partiality between the people and altercation in different religion.

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.

What I believe is that religion and politics are the two opposite banks of a river, that can never mix together. And probably if they would mix in future there is always a chance of tsunami. 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.

Good morning friends. Today's topic is " should religion be mixed with politics" I completely disagree with this. Religion itself defines belief, faith, and worship. Whereas politics is a sheer game. Strategy to adopt a common layman's mind and to indulge him to do thing that their political parties prefer. We at all we mix politics with religion it can harm our democracy.

We have been an indecent, democratic and a developing country since last 66 years. Where every person is free to do what he thinks is right. Not being influenced by religion or any other factor. It would be better if we keep politics and religion different, to have political leaders free from religion pressure and concentrate just on welfare of society. Thank you.

No, religion and politics should not be mixed with each other. Religion choice is a matter of faith and religious beliefs whereas politics is a matter of laws and regulations that entire population has to abide regardless of there religious faith.

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.

This case is still happening in USA. As most of the people their are Christians or Baptists and all other minority religions have very small say in the political demands of people.

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.

Religion and politics are entirely different aspects. But being practical in this world everything is connected by everything, so is with religion and politics. But the main thing is that, that both should not be mixed;as if done, it may lead or even is leading to an endless destruction.

The thing is that politicians should not use or exploit the sacredness of religion. Same is with religions, people should not do politics in caste like some do telling their caste as superior or something like this.

The world is changing, People are raising their voices against what is wrong.

So, it is my appeal to the masses to play their part in the best possible positive manner.

I think its good that every one speaks that religion should not be mixed with politics, but I only got one question, some sections of society are not even allowed to enter the temples on our states the are not given jobs, work, they cannot participate in the country's agricultural economics and some sections are even so deprived that they have to end up eating mice due to poverty, here I change my mind and think that. 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.

There are negative and positive aspects of every thing but at least we should remain optimistic.

Hello friend,

Ya its true that religion should not be mixed with politics. But now a days almost all politician they are doing this. They always try to use religion to differentiate the people. Because they get more vote by doing this. It should not be done. Because it destroy the society as well as country. We are also responsible for this, because we are the one who gave our important vote to that kind of person. So before vote think and give the important vote to good person.

Yes I agree that religion and politics are two different faces of the same coin. When we are talking about politics we should not get a get trap of the religion. 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.

And at last I would say don't make this country a platform for discrimination, have the courage to raise your voice against the wrong and take decisions in favour of what is right.

Indian people are highly emotional as far as their religion is concerned. And they tend to take decisions emotionally by voting a candidate of their own religion but if we want our country to progress then we have to think practically and vote the right and deserving candidate.

Political parties must not use divide and rule strategy to their own country people.

It destroys the brotherhood lying between different religion and leads to destruction of peace and harmony.

According to me, this is true that education should not be mixed with politics.

As India is having various religion so there are lot of chances that this national unrest can lead to communal riots with peace completely destroyed. If our country will keep dealing with such problems then when will get time to solve problems like poverty, unemployment, nutrition for everyone.

Religion and Politics are opposing ideas. As Karl Marx said, "Religion is the Opium of the people. ", this is very true. People are always on the lookout for a savior and something to give justification to their lives, and Religion provides for this.

Politics, on the other hand, is about real people, real laws (that are justifiable in the court of law) and economic relationships (in come the corporate and the 'corrupt politician').

The political, social or economic conditions of people have nothing to do with religion, and thus, both should not be mixed.

In my view religion has nothing to do with politics. Politics is totally different field. We should not select a candidate just because he/she is of our religion. Politics is simply to come between the people, involve them in various government decisions and make them aware of their rights and work for their welfare. On the other hand, religion is something related to our faith. When religion is mixed with politics, we are no longer able to see the benefits and needs of common people rather there emerges discrimination on the basis of religion. Rather than looking at the qualities of candidates, people start looking at the religion and caste of them. Also this mix up leads to mistrust between people of different religions.

Religion and Politics may be considered as two different banks of a river which can't meet. But, we people always try to mix both. Religion is one which separates us from one another in term of the belief in and worship of a superhuman controlling power, especially a personal God or Goddess.

It can never be mixed with politics. But today many politicians are trying to augment their vote banks by mixing religion with politics. It always results in great violence and leads to detriment of peace. Politicians generally believe in "DEVIDE AND RULE" policy and they use it for their selfishness.

Religion and politics. Religion, on one hand, is one's own belief and politics, on the other hand, refers to people of a country or of a state. One can very precisely makes out a different between these two words. India, being a religious country and democratic too, gives freedom to its people to elect their governing body and also to have faith in whatever religion they want to. India is highly praised for having unity in such a huge diversity. Mixture of politics and religion can depose it. Religion obviously divides people into groups but if these groups concentrates to make an individual state, it would destroy our unity as well as the harmony prevailing in the society. Of course there are some groups like shiv sena who always lay emphasis on speaking marathi and deny all other languages. This mixing can ruin our integrity as well as our society.

It is very easy to recognize that Indian politics is connected with religion and cast. And all we are agree with this this truth (unfortunately). But up to what extent both of they are related to each other? Let's consider from the start. From the division and the birth of Pakistan, which was based on religions, the politicians found the use of religion in making vote banks. Today, all we admit that both leading political parties of our country play politics on religion and cast. More specifically one of them supports one religion openly, while the other one is also doing the same indirectly.

All this things have always been affecting the unity of country since last 59 years after independence. It has became a resistance in the development of our country.

I would also like to blame the people of our country who votes on the basis of the cast or religion of the person instead of the basis of the work he/she has done. If we really want to change this system, we will first have to change ourselves. And that all we can do for the growth of country rather than growth of our own religion.

Hi friends, actually now a days the politics is very very dangerous to India. Because the people who are in the power are the great thea*** for India. They are always watching their profit. They are just leaders for earning. So for that they should have man power, I mean people support. And the religion war is most profitable way to get people support. So they make this happen in such a way that no one can belief that these things are done by politicians.

But one thing that the India is a religious country who supports all the religion's his country. And giving the same respect and power to all religions.

Another thing is the people awareness. Because the innocent peoples are unnecessarily involves in all these things, Although they are not intrested also only because of there religion.

As happened earlier, Britishers too used this loophole of divided nation for their benefit and looted India for almost 200 years.

This not only makes us vulnerable to outside world, but also hampers the development of the country, and so we are still not the superpower but under a superpower nation.

Religion should never be mixed with politics. It is a hineous crime on a part of the Indian politicians to do so. India is such a country where if the people work together we would see unforeseen prosperity. But for ages Indian politicians, be it moghuls, be it british people, or the current corrupt politicians, they exercise a single rule " DIVIDE AND RULE POLICY" on the basis of religions.

In 1947 our country was partitioned on the basis of religion. The pangs of separation during the partition which was majorly due to division among hindus and muslims, is still felt today by maximum pakistanis and indians.

Also Indian people have witnessed brutalities in gujarat, punjab etc. Post-Indira Gandhi's death witnessed hindu-sikh riots where defenceless sikhs were killed and tormented brutally sikh wives were raped.

So we have seen for ages that an invisible division in the society, though our constitution never supported such actions, because India is a secular republic country. Hence it is a high time that we shrug off such divisions, and work together for the wellfare of all Indians.
