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.

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.

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.

Hey friends,

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.

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.

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.

Hello friends,

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

A politician is one who treats the whole country as his responsibility and if due to any one sensitive topic which can divide the country or creates conflict among the people living in a country is like the politician is not serious towards his or her responsibility and simply finding his own success by diving the country.

During such cases the citizens of the country should be united without considering each others religion, along with that they should think twice without getting aggressive own what they will be doing.

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. If both the elements are mixed then people will become more biased towards their own religion.

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.

Politics is all about governing the institution; be it a country or a state or a city. And where hot seat of governing almighty is at stake, competition b/w political parties is evident. Trust of winning the game compel them to include various social issues in their manifestation and here they play with the religions and Its sensitivity.

They tend to attract vote of various communities by showing their superficial devotion to community's religion by false promising for their growth and prosperity. Political arguments in the houses, based on religion, leads to riots like those seen in muzaffarnagar recently and Delhi riots, Gujarat riots, Ramsetu case, Babri masjid case etc. My concluding point is that politic's inclusion in religion is way to instability, improsperity, degradation of an institution.

According to my opinion religion is purely different from politics. First of all we represent India after that we represent our religion and we elect politician to serve our nation not our religion. I completely agree that region should not be mixed with politics.

But politician knows the weak point of people and they collect vote by providing false commitment to minority caste and politicians are the main reason for riots. Because they never think about our nation they only think about themselves.

Further others not getting benefits up to next elections. This pattern again repeating.

So people avoid voting for their religion member. formal educations are like understand all person problems without showing partiality. It definitely leads to development. So I am supporting the persons, who won't involve religions while electing. Thank you.

I agrees with the point that Religion and Politics are two different things and we should not mixed them. In country like India where people of different religion are living together and it is the thing that make it different form any other country. If we mix religion and politics it will create a very difficult situation or all of us.

Hi friends,

I m very excited and be enthusiasm.

According to today scenario, we need a lot more than that what we have either it is related to our politics and religion. Both have its own pron and cons. Politics is related to democracy. Politics is something which is necessary to leverage the poverty of country, citizen. Its provide better infrastructure, government, polity to the citizen.

On the other hand religion is related to spiritual concept of life, which tells the concept of humanity, art of giving up. I means humanitarian is always considered irrespective of being religion and every religion has its own caste and culture.

So religion makes a person better and a better person can do a good thing to people and to the country. And but we should know how to make a strike a balance between these two.

Because India is a country of diversity, democratic, secularism.

Politics and Religion strengthen a country. Politics can harm a country's interests, but a religion never hurts a country. Hindu culture is far more older in age than the country India. Today India is standing on its own feet only because of Hindu culture. There is a difference between culture and religion. We should not mix it.

When Hindu culture was followed by our kings right from Chandragupta Mauryan who united all the Hindu kings of that time and it was further reinforced by his son, Bindusara and even further by his son, Emperor Ashoka. At that time, foreign invasions were defeated strongly by Mauryan empire.

When Islamic invasions took place in our country, our country suffered heavy losses and the entire subcontinent came under Mughal's and Nizam's, and then destroyed whoever came in their way. But Thanks to the Maharana Pratap, Chatrapathi Shivaji Maharaj and many kings protected the Hindus and absorbed their pain, after that Maratha Empire came up under the leadership of Shivaji Maharaj, whereby all the Hindus (Indians) irrespective of their culture, religions were given their rights to practice.

After the decline of Maratha Empire, when Maratha's fought courageously with the Mughal's, Nizam's who colluded with Britishers and got defeated. After the decline of East India company, our country was renamed and called the British India. After the partition of British India, two countries emerged, India and Pakistan. Pakistan chose to be an Islamic state, but India was forced to accept secularism, although secularism has its roots deeply in the Hindu culture.

The moment Pakistan chose to be an Islamic state, its Hindu minority population came down heavily to not less than 1%, but no one human rights organisation speaks out in the favor of mass violation of human rights. On the other hand, India's minority population increased from 4% to 14.2% and still increasing. Secularism has its deep roots in Hindu society and culture as it considers "Atithi Devo Bhav" which means guests are equal to gods and deserve to be respected.

Hello friends,

I totally agree that religion is not meant to involved in politics at all. As it has always brought communal riots and clashes among people and sometimes becomes very much disastrous. There isn't any connection in religion and politics. If one is doing so then that is only for his purpose just for the reason to collect votes from a particular community.

Otherwise no sincere and honest politician would do so, every person has to think as a nationalist not a communalist for the development. A politician can't be biased with any community. Every person should be a citizen for him rather than a Hindu, Muslim or Sikhs etc. And all in all religion is a persons personal affair.

Definitely Politics should not mixed with religion, In India there are different religion and different religious people are exist. The very first thing we does need to work on one task and that is remove bias in different caste such as schools, colleges, education, society. All people should get equal rights in the education as well as society.

People should aware about the politician like what they are doing or what they will be doing for people? Is there any improvement in corruption?These all thing we should know. Many time politician plays dirty tricks for specially in election time. They pick up any point like Hindu, Muslim but the problem is we accept their speech with our claps but actually it should not be happened. Religion is totally different thing and politics is a different thing we must not mixed up this both thing. There are still lot of thing I wanna say but it's GD, so thank you.

It has nothing to do with how a country is run and how the economy of the country can be uplifted. People are inherently weak in many aspects and some politicians knowing this fact, tries to bring religion into play for their votes, and use them as foot soldiers in many cases as we can see.

So if we are not thinking religion among the friends and like or choose them on the basis of their good qualities so why not same condition apply in choosing our politicians.

But now a days, religion is best weapon in politics. As per my thinking we should choose the candidate on the basis of education, good qualities, leadership, controlling power rather to choose on the basis communities from where we are belong.

Hello friends,

Well we have got a topic quite mainstream and which is quite persisting in our society for a long time which we can't ignore at all. As we know both are quite different with some similarities but when they are mixed we can expect a lot of devastating consequences for the people, religion and country itself.

Politics is something which is of the people, for the people and by the people. We select a leader based on his merit and his capabilities to lead and let him govern the whole area.

On the other hand, Religion is a belief of certain section of people who have been following particular beliefs for a long time.

But when these two gets mixed, problems do emerge like communal riots and people get divided on the basis of their religion which is spreading like a cancer into the root of our system. Basically it then starts questioning the integrity and sovereignty of our nation.

Vote politics keeps curving upward and politicians do make the wrong use of religion in order to get votes. So, what happens next is that people actually don't cast their vote but they vote their caste. On the other hand, Good leaders are also deprived of leadership because of their in tendency to come into power as in case of minorities.

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.

Hello friends,

I think politics and religion these are the two different aspects. Religion is the group of people who fallow some rules, tradition and have faith on their beliefs.

Politics are the people who are selected from the specific area as a leader they are selected to represent the problems of all sort of people from that area to the government.

If these two things are mixed then they are not going to perform the task for which they assigned. In majority of India these two things mixed for their own purpose politicians take help from religion to be elected and religion take politicians help to solve the problems of their own community.

In some what amount our consistency is also responsible for it as in every election the politician seat to be reserved for some special kind of religion. It is decided so that their is development in all level of and all kind of people.

Good Evening, my name is Aman Rishu and I want to express my views on the given topic. I would like to put 5 points to strengthen my view that why religion should not be mixed with politics:

1. We have to understand that instead of being a communal, we need to be a nationalist.

2. Nations are not made on the religion basis, but on culture basis and so decisions can not be taken on the religion understandings.

3. Religion in politics will lead towards increase in social imbalance and hatred and unwanted violence.

4. It will lead to partiality and the voice of the weak community will not be heard.

5. It will make India a 2nd Pakistan.

6. It will erase the rational thinking of our society. Our decisions will be based upon, Geeta, Quran or Bible which it totally impractical in the modern world.

Good Evening everyone,

I would like to state my opinion on this issue. Politics is a public factor. It consists of people of different religion. It is formed such that its rules and rights are common to every citizen of the country irrespective of caste and creed.

Religion on the other hand is purely private. The choice of religion depends upon ones attraction towards the principles of the particular leader/founder of that religion. One can follow a religion based on his/her choice.

So there is no point in mixing religion with politics. To separate these two things the first step to be taken is to remove the caste based bias in all aspects like education, employment, pension, etc.

Politics should never be mixed with religion. In order to attain political motives people tend to disturb communal harmony existing amongst various religions which not only leads to riots but also create a feeling of hatred towards each other thus inhibiting the growth of the nation. Events like 47 and 84 riots not only ends feeling of humanity but also lead to the outbreak of militant organisations seeking for revenge and terrorism.

With 1.2 billion people, India is the second most populous nation and the largest democracy in the world. The population is divided among a Hindu majority of 80.4%, a Muslim minority of 13.4%, a Christian minority of 2.3%, and the remainder composed of various religions. This makes for a very volatile political environment, though it was not always this way.

Mixing of religion with politics is a dangerous trend because religious attitude is diametrically opposed to democratic feelings. Religion is a private affair and if it is allowed to appear in public affairs it will corrupt politics. So religion makes a a man blind and it will never encourage opposition.

So if we want to consolidate democracy give firm foundations to it and make its working successful, it is necessary that the people should keep religion apart from politics. It is wrong to think that with the help of laws it is possible to divorce religion from politics.

Till the attitude of the people is changed, and till they rise above the petty considerations it is not possible to keep religion and politics apart. By keeping them independent of each other, we can retain democratic set-up.
