Yes Religion should not be mixed with politics. A political leader should be selected based on his commitment and dedication towards work not to which religion he/she belongs. Also religion might some time result into political grievance among politicians. Though it sometimes gives an advantage in respect to vote, but still I am against religion mixing with politics.

Hi friends.

This is a matter of great concern for today as well as future generation that religion is getting mixed with the politics. Politician use this as a tool to gain votes. They play with the sentiments of the people.

India is a religion based country and there are more than 74% Hindus and politics will be religion based it will be unfair for the minority religions. Leaders should be chosen by seeing their work not their religion. Today politician use the religion in a wrong way to gain votes. Everyone is equal and religion is should not be the deciding factor.

Thank you.

Hi guys.

According to me. I totally agree with this point that politics should not be mixed with religion.

But its very gloomy that in our country politics is always mixed with religion.

I think every politician whether he is experienced or new always mix religion in politics.

Also, not all but some of the people also think like that they can give their votes only to those politicians they are related to their casts or religion.

It is a really very bad thinking.

We should have to change our mindsets to stop this thing.

In my opinion politics and religion are two different things and should not be mixed with each other as politics is to serve the nation and improve the country not a particular religion. There is no doubt that religion and politics are two most important elements in people's lives.

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.

Hi Friends.

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. India is a democratic country in which the person who wins the election will not get votes form only one religion so he have to work for all because with the support of all the people he is on such position.

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.

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.

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.

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.

"Religion and Politics" can be viewed together in many contexts. Till date we have experienced only some bad examples of these together. But, As per me, they can form a fabulous mix. A truly religious person can never do something wrong and he/she can be a better politician too.

No religion teaches someone to do anything bad for others or to discriminate people. These religious values define our countries culture. So, we should not stop religion from getting mixed with politics, But, should stop those politicians who are using these two, in a wrong way against us.

Religion, caste, creed and etc are all built up as per individual perspective towards their life which they want to showcase and force people to observe. Being spiritual is one's right. But enforcing your religion and belief via politics isn't really what a democratic country should be doing. Politics rather sounds a very negative word.

Religion is something we believe in and politics is all about getting your facts straight about your economy and the development of your country.

However, in India the trend followed is religion walks hand in hand with politics. If India needs to develop. People need to have a broader perspective towards it. Than it would be justified to be called Democratic India.

I think that religion one issue and politics is another issue. That is, they are not interrelated to each other. So that the religion should not be mixed with politics Because,

According to religion definition, It tells about:

1. How to live,
2. How to respect.

According to Politics definition, It tells about:

1. How to increase in development of society,
2. How to maintain peace in society.

And that Indian people have to practice. And this will make a powerful country. Politician are playing a dirty game by divide and rule.

It should depend upon what we are mixing. If something from religion can do good in the politics then we must appreciate it. If it not then we should discard it. Religion is scared it should never be a part of a dirty game for the hunger of power and money.

We are capable of doing anything what we think, can do, can dream but the politician is like differentiator who is breaking the whole power in different unit in stead of integration of people.

It is right that religion should not be mixed with politics because it changes the mentality and discrimination arising among people.

My dear friends! first we should know about the politics and what does it means? politics is something that makes anybody on his right with empowerment regardless of religious or caste issues. But to create an environment where the people of different religious could possibly remain at stability, there is need of a neutral sort of leader who could do a fair leading.

I agree that a religion should not be mixed with politics but involvement of it is necessary because a leader without religious or morality could be as worse as, 'Hitler' was. A religious makes a person more elastic and helps creating a peaceful environment. A religious teaches us to give rights to the sectors of non-religious (having other religious) at security. Because we cannot force anybody adapting one's religious.

No doubt a politics means, "Not this, Not that; just that". But it should be in right of; considering as a general; for every person living in the country and which could not create any hindrance against even a single sector. A politics should be move forward keeping in mind the religious aspects but it cannot be taken as all in all.

In the last of all I want to say that a religious is a personal matter and the person with good deeds will find his heaven at the end. But to invite others is also a moral duty and necessary but no enforcement is involve. If a person don't want any other religious to replace one's his own then it does not matter. We are given equal right by god whether we select a religious of our choice. But for this a complete study of any religion is also necessary. May Allah shows us the right path and to our leaders as well. Amin!

Sorry if I did any mistake because I'm not a scholar or professor but a student who could just share his feelings in his points of view about, "religion should not be mixed with politics". Hope I conveyed my ideas, a little, lol.

According to me, mixing the religion with the politics, means of doing real cruel politics. As because of unemployment, partialities peoples are getting separated away from each other. There are very few reason for them to get-together.

If the politics mix with religion, then it will be totally the dirty game play by the politicians with the people. Its another way to build up the discrimination between the peoples.

Moreover, there is no any kind of concerned of religion with the politic.

According to me, Religion should not mixed with Politics. As we know that India is country in which you can find people from all the religions. After that India is united and there is quote also "unity in diversity". So if religion will mix in the politics then it has a lot of consequence in bad way.

Now a days in India some leaders are doing a politics totally based on religions. They are dividing the people on the base of religion. There are lot of peoples in the society those have the mindset of politics based on religions. SO for that they use their thoughts and wins the elections.

So for that govt and people of the country should take an initiative to escape our country for such types of bad evil. For that we should use our own mind and should not divert our mind by others whom primary purpose to divide India in separate religions and however they want to rule in nation.

I am Ashutos,

1. According to me in our country we can get people of different religions. We live as a family.

2. So in our politics we don't use word religion which will categorize a person that he/she is different from another person in religion.

3. Our politics is totally different from politics of other countries. Here each and every member can stand their opinion. Our politics never underestimate his/her opinion if he/she belongs to different religion.

So in my opinion we should keep the word religion away from our politics to make our country unique in the world.

Religion is just a cultural system and world views, so it should not be mixed with politics.

Now a days politicians are using their religions and caste to elect them as a leader. In my point of view the major mistake is created by the people who are electing the leader only because of seeing their own religion.

That's why politicians are misusing the thoughts of such people. This is solved only by changing our mind and thoughts not to elect the people only using religions.

They must be elected by seeing their education, knowledge about ruling the country etc.

My point of view is as same as of the people above.

Its very true that religion must be disliked from politics because it affects that the administration system of our country. Not only that it is also worsening the feeling of brotherhood in our society.

As said by Gandhiji Hindus and 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 and Muslims but is same for all religions.

So we must always remember that we all are brothers in this country. This religious and social barriers are created by the people themselves. Moreover religion is a very sentimental issue for all individual and so shouldn't be used to provoke people to manipulate their choice of political parties.

During any election what happen is politicians they adversities them and there cast and critics other religion. This not correct phenomena for electing leader. People should not consider the case consider the education, work done by the leader, and he's experience in the field.

If even 100 rupees is lost by our dear ones, we get furious on them and on other hand these politicians are losing our crores of rupees and we have 'don't care' attitude for them. India is a democratic country and It is a duty of we people we choose a correct honest politician who leads the country on a way of development.

We have a right to cast vote and choose correct candidate, but these candidates are choose by more no.of uneducated people who vote to their cast candidate, not all educated people full fills their duty of casting vote which makes the situation worse.

Most of cast based choose politicians are ineligible and corrupted, they do some work for their community and rest time they are engaged in gathering wealth for their own. We should not expect country's development from them.

Educating people is best way to make the situation better, they will be aware about what is right and wrong for them, public awareness programs should be help. And more educated people should use their right to cast vote for a better candidate and development of country.

Religion and politics are two different things. When we are choosing a leader, we assume that he should have leadership quality and not a particular religion. If you need a banker certainly you won't keep criteria that of a beauty contest because being beautiful is not criteria of being a successful banker.

Hence voters should not vote on basis of religion. Personal interest should never exceed over nation's interest. We live in a secular nation where talent and hard work are to be awarded and not caste or religion. People often get misled by politician who appeal their support on basis of religion, but people should become more and more aware of their rights and choose their leader not on basis of religion but qualities.

Healthy politics will certainly help nation to grow but today's conspirated politics will lead our nation towards destruction.

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.

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.

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.
