|In my views, the two should not be mixed. But I think there is no fault of the politicians in mixining the two it's we who are doing that, it's we who have allowed these things to be done in our country, it we who gave the politicians religion as a tool too play with. India is considered as a mother of religions but I guess this diversity in religion which should have been used to actually stand upon the famous line of "unity in diversity" is not being implemented rather we take pride in calling ourselves Muslim, sikh, dalits etc instead of being called as Indians. That's why politicians choose to favour that religion which has majority or whose maximum people support their incentives cause they think that using religion is atleast bearing them fruits to get in power in our country. Definitely who would not like to stay in power. This is not to offend any particular party but if some Muslim political leader would say that Hanuman was a Muslim and give all those long explanations for it definitely Muslims would support him. We have created a wall in human race breaking it into religions.|

|Some questions many tend to ask is;
1) Should the two be mixed?
2) And if they are mixed, would it be like manna falling from heaven or a powerful poison which destroyed everything it touches?
Religion and politics must be kept separate. Religion is meant to unite people with similar beliefs into a moral community. Politics, on the other hand, is meant to unite all people of a region into a single community, regardless of personal beliefs and practices. Thus, when the two are mixed, the results are bound to be disastrous.

|I think including or even mixing religion with caste is a very cheap way of getting votes from a majority of people. Since politicians look for their benefit rather than the benefit of the people, casteism and forming religion based party is a common way which may help them get votes and access power.
Mixing religion and politics makes people of certain religion which exist as minority in the country, feel alienated and discriminated.
|Theja said: (Oct 10, 2018)|
|In my view, Yes, religion is not mixed with politics because religion is not at all matter for the politician. If the political leader is free from any religion then only leadership qualities is to be taken out correct manner. Some of the people make group themselves and opt for there religion one leader. This type of politics is not enough for our country or state. The things are going in natural is better than artificial. It may leafs problems to our society and very poor people. They make religion as fashion and do bad things.
Finally, I conclude that this is not good politicians mix with their religion only.
|Alok Panday said: (Sep 16, 2018)|
We all know very well India is the country of lot of religions.
We live all-together with harmony. But some zealots does not want peace they always search a chance to make fight among religions. India is secular country every one should understands it. Every religion has some fault but its not shown by other religions. Like triple talaq it's not good for women even women belongs Hindu or Muslim it does not matter. We only talk about is it right or not under law?
|Nisha Gupta said: (Sep 16, 2018)|
|Yes, Religion should not be mixed with politics because its discriminates between the peoples, their religion their culture and also their feelings. Many politicians do for his own sake, and does not even realize that they divided our country.|
|Alok said: (Sep 13, 2018)|
|In my point of view politics and religion are two different things. There are records that political parties always used religion as there vote-bank. If any dispute arises between two religion that matter should be analyzed by the court, not by any political parties. Politics should be always secular. If we mix politics with religion that will not make any good to society.|
|Anand said: (Aug 22, 2018)|
|Politics is directly related with the people so it cannot be independent of the origin of people. According to me, political parties should have the respect for every religion by making religion as their main perspective. They should be concerned with development, human rights, law and order, justice, education, health, economic growth etc. Instead of showing privilege to any certain community. If any religious belief violating the constitution they must take strong action without thinking their vote bank benefits.|
|Romery said: (Jul 22, 2018)|
|I agreed to the opinion of my friends. Religion is not need to mix up with politics. Religion is based on the belief of creation and existence. Politics is based on way of thinking, it's for the betterness of country. If religion based politics is existing, what will happen to atheists. Does they need to leave the country? Or need to sacrifice their lives? I don't think so. Because right to belief is fundamental.|
|Vivek Sapate said: (Jul 16, 2018)|
|Religion introduced in politics is not bad but Politician used for there on purpose is Bad or Misuse for there own purpose is absolutely Bad. This thing create conflict in people. Religion actual meaning is to connect us for good purpose and create Peace and love for everyone.
But some people think that there religion is better than any other that create problem.
If religion used in politics for good purpose then No one think that it is bad.
|Anirudh Naithani said: (Jul 8, 2018)|
I strongly believe that religion should not be mixed with politics because;
1. We are seeing lots of terrorist activities happening around the world just because of religion, they think their religion is better and above than any other in the world, and taking religion in politics will be more devastating.
2. India is having a lot of religion in itself taking one will only lead to conflict, as taking one means the one is superior.
3. We need to understand that religion is for people welfare and pure whereas politics is a dirty game we should not be mixed both.
4. Gandhiji said religious should be mixed with politics but by that, he didn't point out on any one religion and India is having numerous religions.
5. India is a secular country and by that, we should know that no religion is superior to any other.
Thus I want to conclude by saying this its good to take some ideas, keeping some point from the religion but mixing religion is not a better option both are different things.
|Ravindra Singh said: (Jun 28, 2018)|
|Yes, I too think so as religion is the only room politicians use for earning votes. This kind of mixture should strongly be avoided for the betterment of our country.|
|Papai said: (Jun 7, 2018)|
|If there is no religion in politics then people will raise their voice why unemployment, price of oil increases day by day. Means people will conscious about their rights but if there is religion in politics only few people will raise their voice against such issue, leaders can easily ignore their voice just by marking them as a enemy of religion.|
|Deeya said: (May 1, 2018)|
|According to my point of view, religion is very clear and people have faith on religion but if it also gets involved into politics which is a dirty pool of mud then religion will also get dirty and manipulated. Politicians use religion for their use only they don't care of anyone as they know that no of Hindus in India is high that is why they use Hindu religion to get votes from the people and if the people don't understand then no one can help them.|
|Rajnesh said: (Apr 27, 2018)|
|I think Politics and religion are 2 different things. Religion is a faith in people. But another politics is a business. Leaders are playing with people's faith. They use religion with politics only 4 himself benefits. Nowadays, it's created a very major issue. Because they used the religion 4 himself benefits but it divides the country. Polytechnics destroyed that country and one day it blessed.|
|Vasu said: (Apr 25, 2018)|
|Yes, I totally agree with this statement. Politicians can do anything for their party benefits. They just want vote. Religion is the most easy way to manipulate the mind of public. They just pretend themselves that they are with us but they never do that thing from where they are not getting anything. Someone said that none business is bigger than politics in the world.|
|Twink24 said: (Apr 5, 2018)|
|Yes, I strongly believe that religion should not be mixed with politics. Politics is a dirty game that plays with people emotions. In our country everyone is possessed with his religion getting votes in the sake of religion makes them to vote without thinking right and wrong. A person should vote not for the candidate who is of the same caste but to the person who has the capability to do the task perfectly. There should some laws or amendments that lesser the religion involvement in farming country. Politics makes our country represent our county and that representation can't be done on the basis of a particular religion or community. It should be a mixture of all.
|Ron said: (Mar 24, 2018)|
|In my opinion, religion should not be mixed with politics. But our present government wants to mix religion with politics.
They are against eating beef it's a political issue for them. 1. They hates Muslims 2. They want to please the Hindus because the maximum number of Hindu live in India. If all Hindu support them then there will not have any problem in a political career.
|Helpingbuddy said: (Mar 23, 2018)|
|As per my point of view, religion and politics should not be mixed. We have spend a lot in our education now what we are up to we judge one with its religion. Is it right? We are blindly giving the vote to a politician on their religious background thinking of that if he is from our religion then he will benefit us. Think of if, next time from other religion is elected then he will also benefit for their own people and this keep on going we are heading nowhere development of nation seizes because we only working for benefit of one kind then why our country motto is unity and diversity. Unnecessary riots and lots of mishappening is occurring due to this. I think politics means work for the nation not rule the nation.|
|Helly said: (Mar 15, 2018)|
According to me, I believe that religion is something that helps you or guides you towards the path of eternal peace and serenity.
We live in a country like India should be thankful to its religious diversity.
According to me, every religion in this world focuses on one thing that is life is a give and take relationship. The way you behave with others is the same that you should expect from others.
Politics in India nowadays have started using religion as one of their manifestations.
Which is not at all good for the future of this country cause it acts as a barrier towards the growth of intellectuality in oneself.
The leading political figures of our country should not indulge the religious sentiments in politics in order satisfy one's greed rather they should focus in inculcating the values highlighted by the religions into their day to day life in order to achieve success, this will not only help them side by side it will also make this country a good place to live in.
|Pratibha said: (Mar 1, 2018)|
|I think it's the current scenario of our country that it is heading towards a political religionism i.e. There is a mix of religion in politics. Which cause rift in the ideological thinking. And leads to communalism and later it can also turn into a mild cold war. When our nation was built with the motive of democracy and social welfare but now it has turned into religionist global politics. I this condemn the thought that politics and religion should be mixed!|
|Sufiyan said: (Feb 18, 2018)|
|We should not mixed religion with politics, this are two different factors. Religion teaches us to how to live a life. How to care one another. How to be good with everyone. But politics discriminate people on the basis of caste, religion. The oppose people on the basis of religion. For ths the country will not grow. It is a secular country we should live in our sociey as brotherhood. Thank you.|
|Seersak Joshi said: (Feb 17, 2018)|
|In my opinion, religion should not be mixed with the politics because religion is something that deals with people's belief and religion shouldnot be a part of politics, sorry to say I don't mean to hurt someone's feelings but there are certain leaders who have raised their voice against the attack made by terrorists who stated that only a particular community of them have died among the Indian army but he didnot mentioned that crpf jawans and other army officials also lost their lives fighting for the country, so there is nothing like hindus ad muslims in india, everyone should be treated equal.|
|Vishal Dubey said: (Feb 15, 2018)|
|Yes, it is true That religion should not be mixed with politics as unlike gender differences religion differences are often expressed in the field of politics As Gandhi Ji believed that politics must be guided by ethics dawn from the religion.
But by this he did not mean that the particular religion. So there are many challenges that the politics is faced by the religion. And many differences occur between them so religion should not mix with politics.
|Arjun said: (Jan 29, 2018)|
|I think religion and politics should go hand in hand. We as Indians live our daily lives according to our religion then why should we separate it when it comes to politics. Politics is a part of our life and when the rest of our lives are based on religion then politics should also involve religion. Religion teaches us honesty, sincerity and good against evil. If politics will not have religion it means that it won't have these teachings which will further lead to more coorrupt political system.
And practically you can't keep them apart. Religion and politics cross over each other everday. We need acccept it that there is absolutely no way to 100% separte them.
|Riya said: (Jan 19, 2018)|
|I agree that religion should not mix with the politics. As we know that many of the issues or problems are because of religious discrimination, and we know that religion is one of cause for terrissiom and many other problems in India, so how can we mix the religion with politics. Every individual has there own religion so a politician must select on basis of their humanity irrespective of their gender or caste or religion.|
|Pranit said: (Jan 17, 2018)|
|Religion is sacred to every individual, and hence should not be made an issue. Religion & politics both should be kept away. Politicians should not exploit this weakness which otherwise is a defining trait of our country.
Such diplomacy is dividing our societies and resulting in a rise in fear & rage among people.
People should now the power of democracy & that there is no use of religion in governing a country. They should know that the person who is dividing us by the name of religion is not worthy of our votes. Religion, caste, colour, etc. Are worth nothing to the development of a nation. "Jai Hind".
|Divyani Jain said: (Jan 11, 2018)|
Religion was born to give us the way of life. Different groups formed different modus operandi for their devotees. While politics is to manage the communities. Though both are supposed to be non-discriminatory and non-judgemental, corruption has taken over both. Today, both of these have become a way of serving one's own ends.
One with other or without other, the situation would still be same. Although I do believe that alone they are less disastrous than put together!
|Naman Chugh said: (Jan 11, 2018)|
|There should be only one religion in politics that is humility.|
|Anubhav Mathur said: (Jan 9, 2018)|
I think nobody would have any doubts regarding the fact that religion should be kept away from politics but somehow the relationship between the two just doesn't seem to be inseparable. Religion is mixed with politics and is used by political parties to form vote banks thus at times becoming unjust to the deserving leader.
|Vikrant Singh said: (Jan 4, 2018)|
|I think that religion and politics are two different things and should be kept apart because of following region-.
According to me, if religion will be mixed with politics than it will give priority to the particular region and that is not good for a developing country. And also mostly political parties misguide religious peoples and want to take advantage of this so both should be apart.
|Vikas Beniwal said: (Jan 2, 2018)|
|Hi friends, in my opinion, I think persons with religious thoughts and mind should not come to politics I think they should give hole contribution towards their gods. The people who thinks of humanity and for the people and about country first should participate in politics so that we lead towards healthy developed environment.|
|Jessica said: (Dec 14, 2017)|
|According to me, religion should not be mixed with politics. They are opposite poles and they cannot be compared. Our country India is a religion-free nation. All caste and religions are respected. There is a heavy competition in politics between two people not between there religions. Religions is just a way to recognise them. But we as a Indians are all brothers and sisters. So please do not indulge religion in politics. Thank you for the opportunity.|
|Sachin Kumar said: (Oct 2, 2017)|
|I don't feel good of indulging religion with politics. I completely condemn it.
Cast equalization in politics is getting prevelant thesedays. Politicians understand it completely that's why they convince us that they provide all benefits and rights if people elect them of same community. In contrary people is reason behind it. Politicians persuade us during election campaign and make us believe if they win, will provide better life to those community but repurcussion happens just opposite.
|Sakshi said: (Sep 30, 2017)|
|Politicians who actually care for nations devalopment talk of nations progress and those who just care of power and glory talk of religion which actually must be kept apart from politics. This is reality that if we keep on allowing others to play with our sentiments then they will leave no stone unturned in order to achieve their aim. It is our duty moremost to ignore such people. Not much to say I think we all are are awarded with a good nice conscience.|
|Vignesh Yv said: (Sep 20, 2017)|
|Yes, I completely agree with the statement. Nowadays, most of our politicians making this as their habit. They beg the votes in the name of religion. These are the main causes for communalism and other related discriminations. My conclusion is that the politicians in future at least can concentrate on improving the REGIONS rather than RELIGION.|
|Shivani Rana said: (Sep 18, 2017)|
|I don't think is there any way of a single positive aspect of indulging politics with religion, religion and talks about it are very sensitive matter to people, they get annoyed easily if something bad is said about their culture and it's a normal human tendency, so what are politicians doing for the sake of votes is very disappointing, not only religion they have even divided us on basis of castes I'm, and the present scenario of reservation will surely increase the gap between people, there would be no sense of nationalism in them, they would just define them according to their religion, state, caste, social status, and these differences won't help us in any sense.|
|Archana said: (Sep 11, 2017)|
|Yess! I agree with the thing that religion and politics should not be mixed together. As of now that we are living in a democratic country that probably makes sense. But usually people finding the way to separate themselves such PEOPLE don't want better India. If we mixed politics and religion together then work according to that category and the other party not even getting a chance. Then it is like okay one party members system. We need multi-party member system in our country. It could not happen what the country begins.|
|Aakash said: (Aug 27, 2017)|
|Religion should not be mixed with politics. As politics must comprise young leaders as they possess youth and advanced thinking which is very necessary for our country, Senior leaders as they have a lot of experiences in different aspects/stages of life. Both age group is necessary. Politics should not be religion biased. As it might hamper the growth of the economy, there might be cultural differences among people, might be nepotism and hatred among people. It may hurt the slogan of Unity in diversity.
So, religion should not be mixed with politics, the need should be Education and necessary qualification.
|Krishna said: (Aug 19, 2017)|
|Yes. Religion should not be mixed with Politics. Nowadays, most of the politicians are asking for votes in the name of religion or caste which should not be encouraged by the people. Voting should be done on the basis of effectiveness and character of the leader but not on religion/caste. People should change by not accepting money from the leaders as they are going to collect double or triple the money he spent on us if we choose him. First, We must change to change our country or else, we should die to watch all the magics done by our politicians.|
|Shishir said: (Aug 18, 2017)|
|India is a land of many religion but politics is making it the weak point of India.
Use of religion in politics for personal interest is not a new thing.
Many time religion is mixed And general people have to suffer so it should not be mixed with politics.
|Amit said: (Aug 7, 2017)|
|In our country, peoples of different religion live together in a society. Political parties should not prefer any religion in making any decision. If they do so, it may lead to violence among the peoples of different religions. As a developing country, there should not be any discrimination between different religions. Political leaders should treat a religion as small, they should always make a decision in favour of all religions.|
|Pj_19 said: (Jul 27, 2017)|
|I completely agree with the statement, as mixing religion with the politics creates a tiff between different religions. Political parties refer a particular religion as their vote bank and try to work in favour of them which create in differences among masses and their consequences are even worst.|
|Ashish said: (Jul 24, 2017)|
|As we know in India, there are many religions exist till from many years ago according to people faith, but the most importantly we must have to think that is it right if religion is mixed with politics.
I think that religion should not be mixed with politics.
I want to mention here that if religion is mixed with politics, violence among people increase and there is no harmony exist.
People use religion not for their help but as a weapon (as divide and rule) to increase their votes.
If mentality of the politician get changed that mixing of religion is not the right way to run the country, the image of our country will be more different.
|Ilayaraja said: (Jul 24, 2017)|
|India is a secularism economy where is available various religion people. But some politicians create a religion political party for their own purpose of giving a vote from people. It will create a discrimination among the people as well as communal violence. The politician should not be mixed with politics. If the politicians mix with religion, the government should abolish political party.|
|Anup Kumar Thakur said: (Jul 19, 2017)|
|India is democretic countery it does not mean politician has privilege to raise their voice against anything for sake of vote bank or making special protection appearance to the people.
I absolutely agree that religion should not be included into the politician. It creates lot of adverse effect to the country. Some I am mentioning first it creates the bad sentiments to the people, it initiates the people to be indulge into the terrorism activity which creates violence to the country.
|Pankaj said: (Jul 16, 2017)|
|I totally agree that religion should not be mixed with politics. Bpolitics. But nowadays, it has become a fashion to include religion into the politics. Politicians are using religion as a vote bank, not for their welfare. It should be stopped. Every party or politician should think about welfare of the countrymen because of whom they have reached to their position in politics.|
|Prachi said: (Jul 6, 2017)|
|I also agree with the statement. In India, there are such politicians which apply the methodology of divide and rule as early the Britishers do with us for their benefits. But I m quite surprise, that this religion phenomenon also applies our education system. There are caste which has some reservation they have an ability to paid the fees but they can't. They always take benefits from this reservation. And many more factors on this which I want to discuss that apart from the education system, this also applicable at the time of jobs. The promotions also made on the basis of religion and reservation category. Apart from all this there are people having different religion love in India with happiness I appreciate that. There are more than 100 languages are only in India but still, we love and respect each other. I m proud of it.|
|Abhilash said: (Jun 19, 2017)|
|A religious person who is righteous and loving will definitely care for the welfare of the whole population and hence become a true politician. True politicians can only be righteous and loving. They cannot be anything but religious.
The problem arises when religious leaders restrict the freedom of people to follow their dharma. If such religious leaders gain political power, they ostracize members of other religions. This should not happen. When leaders allow religion to become all encompassing with full freedom to pray and worship in any manner as long as it does not interfere with others, it will bring righteousness and peace to people and will be suitable for any society. Then there will be no cause to fear such leaders. Indeed, such leaders are the need of the time.
Today both religion and politics need a change. Religionists should be tolerant to allow freedom to everyone to follow the religion of their choice. And politicians should be trained in the basic principles of dharma. If leaders are righteous and spiritual, the whole society can flourish and be uplifted.
|John Bosco said: (Jun 4, 2017)|
|Religion should never be separated from politics, if the rulers are serious about their/our life. Religion is not what we do in religious places. It is much deeper and involves life and death matter. I believe that firstly every God says 'love your fellow human beings' " this is accepted even by the non-believers. Secondly, God is our Father and we are his children, who expects us to treat everyone as brothers and sisters. Finally, we are accountable to nature and to one another as brothers and sisters. This brings us to the conclusion that Religion is the way we live our faith that is, we are the children of the God of LOVE, who wants us to treat one another equally in every way.
Politics is the way we help this religion of LOVE coming to reality. Politicians are expected to facilitate this ideal of fraternity, which is in the Indian Constitution -the Preamble.
To make it simple, religion is the real communism - in the positive sense- in which God is the head, love is his path and brotherhood is the motto or final goal.
Unfortunately, capitalistic principles do not go with this line of thinking, as SELF GLORY is their motto and domination is their path, which is questioned by the Religion of LOVE, which does not allow the rulers to get richer. By the way, minister means servant and not a ruler. Their core self is questioned by the true Religion. Therefore, they separated it has been unable to satisfy their conscience. If we are serious about establishing a true society, Religion of LOVE should be the base for all our life - Economic, Social and political. If we are cowards and do not have the courage to be servants of people - whatever the walk of life we are in, we may separate religion from politics. For your information, in earlier societies, ETHICS was taught in one class, which included morality and politics as they could not be separated.
|Pawan said: (Jun 2, 2017)|
|The statement is 100% true.
In Indian govt, all the leaders came in politics and they are ruling us just based on their caste. India never develops until this caste filling is live in the people of India.
The people of India first change their mind set that the caste came into the picture just from their occupation s in olden days. Politics cannot be mixed with politics. The voting can be done based on best leader not based on candidates caste.
|Anand said: (Apr 6, 2017)|
|The world in which we are living today it is harsh reality that religion has been mixed with politics as far as my opinion one should not be mixed it with each other it is just like two banks of river nowadays we are seeing that many politicians are polarising votes by dividing into religions the thing on which one should concentrate like development, skill, lifestyle, facilities, medical treatments etc. Are not discussing the main reason is that at the grassroots level people are not understating what is right for them as educated people nowadays understood that no religion is greater than man and no man is greater than country so they are boycotting those who are mixing it with each other. We should not propagate the kind of thing which they are saying they (politicians) should be isolated if they try to mix it with religion.|
|Yogesh Choudhary said: (Mar 21, 2017)|
|Religion should not be mixed with politics both are different things like two banks of river they never meet to each other religion is faith but politics is power. Power should not be interfere in faith it may become disaster. And another point is that religion means a particular group of people if we consider this in politics means we biased to that particular group of people which breaks our unity and it is helpful for foreign to rule in our country. And political parties does not work properly because they easily win and they misuse their power which are responsible for our falling down. And one last thing is that reservation they promise that we provide reservation that group of people from that another group of people can come in strike the result of this so many loss of our country. So the conclusion is that religion should not be mixed with politics.|
|Rajendra said: (Mar 8, 2017)|
|Ideally yes, religion and faith should not be mixed with politics. Before we begin to condemn the malpractices, let us understand that post independence we have chosen to be a democratic government. In a scenario where the majority of the population was rural, uneducated with this new concept of democracy. No resources and programs were introduced with this respect to supplant the feudalistic mind in many strata with democracy. Sufficient education of the new system and its contrasts with the old system were not explained to the population. Only the England educated class had an idea of the democratic process with its pros and cons.
The soup of politics, religious faith, we are seeing now is a consequence of the mistakes we have committed. We are trying to be democratic with a feudalistic mindset.
|Raone said: (Mar 6, 2017)|
|It's obvious that that politician will demand votes on the name religion, but who to be blamed, the politician or ourselves, it's a way votes are earned by corrupt, illiterate politician but if s/he request us to vote on religion name then don't for vote them and this will be our answer to them who want to divide us religion name, remember friends we are the voters we are the one who can decide what to do whether to encourage them, or reply back with our power, this will be the message of the people of secular Indian citizen to greedy and mean politics played by them on us we are ready put end to dirty politics.|
|Anonymous said: (Feb 28, 2017)|
|No religion greater than human; No human greater than country.
We are known as secular country.
But when politicians like owaisi talk unwanted things and target Hindu religion then secular close their eyes and ear that's today's reality; and those sold media who support anti-national wide in the name of freedom of speech are another side of secular India. The MIM and congress and their followers who support terrorist and talk that we are biggest victims. But the reality is that when that terrorist kill or carry out bomb blast he did not kill or execute the victims because they are Hindu or Muslim or Sikh they execute because we are INDIANS. After the blackout (bomb blast) the blood shed on the floor didn't speak that this blood is related with Hindu or Muslim. That bloodshed speaks that INDIANS are the real victims. So there is no place for communalism and the one who support communalism.
|Akhtar Husain said: (Feb 16, 2017)|
|No. Religion should not be mixed with politics and whoever asks for vote in the name of religion, boycott that leader as we are living in a secular country in which leader chosen by us is responsible for the development of a country and its people, not a single religion. And whoever does so they are dangerous for our unity and integrity.|
|Harshith said: (Feb 12, 2017)|
|Many people advocate the thought that religion should not be mixed with politics. But is that a practical thing? Is it possible to keep religions and politics away from each other? There is no doubt that religion and politics are two most important elements in people's lives. And when they both come together arguments are bound to happen. 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 are 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. Whenever politics and religions are mixed then the voting decisions of people have been affected. Politics is about power and a religion is about faith. Faith can influence power but when power influences faith it can become disaster. Faith always leads to principles and values.
So thereby I conclude that 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.
|Anikqua Spencer said: (Jan 26, 2017)|
|I agree that religion and politics should never be mixed. The law is supposed to be based on logic and good reasoning as to why something should be legal or not; not based on "your" faith in a personal God. Religion is already complex enough with over 4,000 religions and everyone will feel that their religion is superior, making their word law. "My" God isn't always going to be the next persons God meaning we will practice differently. For example, in some religions "we" would still have slaves, woman wouldn't be allowed to be in a position of leadership, interracial couples and dating would be forbidden, etc. Those are just a few factors as to why I believe religion should not be involved in politics. We should be focused on the maturity and growth of nations that is equal and religion just hinders "us from doing so.|

|Yes, I also think but in politics it is the most important thing that the people belonging to that caste will allow his her vote to his caste belonging category.|
|Bimal Kumar said: (Jan 7, 2017)|
|I also agree with this statement. Actually this time lots of people believe in religion. It's a good habit but that is not good. You give your vote of him. Your first duty is that you choose an honest member again you give vote on him. Because this is your right that first of first you choose a candidate.|
|Gurpreet Kaur said: (Jan 5, 2017)|
|I agree with this statement, Religion should not be mixed with politics. Because we choose politics for nation development, not for religion development. Politics create religion for own benefit but it is bad thinking. Firstly responsible all people this situation because almost people vote for own caste leader. They do not see who leader his good for developing India. The leader born from people not for religion. Don't sell voting for money. Please choose one of the best leader and votes for him. Don't see the cast feeling. If we see caste feeling then we are not select correct leader and when we choose wrong leader then India never develop, only because of you. Thank you.|

|Politics and religion are two institutions that cannot be separated. They have always worked for hand in hand since ancient Greek civilization. While implementing a state's law, it must be put into consideration that the particular law doesn't clash with the religious belief of that state. In Christian context, the state must understand the rule of the church and vice versa. Politics in its broader sense may be referred to, "affairs of the state, or, citizen" and in narrow sense, it simply may be defined as, "government". Looking at the former, it is not deniable that in every religious text a king would normally rule his kingdom on the advice of his god or a god would intervene to select a king. And when we say "government" it simply denotes a powerful head of the state. To be the head of the state a political party would use different strategy. They would make at least 30% false promises or use money power in order to grab the position. But that is applied politic which is somewhat different from real politics and it puts the dichotomy between the two. Otherwise, Religion is always part of politics.|
|Madhava Reddy said: (Dec 8, 2016)|
|I agree with the statement, religions should not mix with the politics. We choose a politician for nation development, not for the developing the religion or cast. There are many religions approximately 1000 religions made by Indian country. "The leader born from people, not from the religion". Who politician coming from the religion, that politician embers playing with other religion people. "Don't sell vote for money", please choose one best leader and vote for him. Don't see the caste feeling, when you choose the leader for our nation development. If you see the caste feeling in the politics, The India never develop, only because of you. Thank you.|

|All of our know India is a subcontinent with variable traditions and cultures. In that point of view, we have different religions each of them has different habitations. But also another important than that of India is democratic country too. Each religion has their own political environment to enroll their life in good manner. I support it but it each politician gets set the mind of their own religion responsibilities much more than their social work and doesn't knows the needs of other peoples around us. Especially in India, we cannot cease our traditions and politics.|
|Wrishabh Pandey said: (Nov 25, 2016)|
|In my point of view, it is true that the religion shouldn't mix with politics if they do so, they try to divide us for just their own profit. Leaders like that just serve for money, not for nation. Citizen must aware for this to prevent Nation's Development.|
|Elizabeth Sandhra Martin said: (Nov 4, 2016)|
|Being a part of a secular country every citizen has the right to follow which ever religion that one likes and living in a democratic country like India we find ourselves in politics.
In today's world both religion and politics need to change.
Religious and political leaders need to be both spiritual and righteous to the uplift and to flourish the society.
|Renu said: (Nov 3, 2016)|
|I completely agree with the statement that politics should not be mixed with religion. We choose a politician for the development of nation not for the development of a religion or of a caste. Our nation is made up of approx 1000 different religion so we can not choose a different leader for each religion. If we will start choosing the leader on the basis of religion then there will be a new India in each and every corner. In the current situation of India, it is our responsibility that if a politician tries to divide us on the basis of religion or cast complain against him and don't give a single vote to him.
In some regions of our country where the literacy rate is very low, we should work on that and provide the suitable facility for growth and development of that areas.
|Vikas said: (Nov 2, 2016)|
|My dear friend,
My view is differ from other because we forget that our partition has been naming on religion so it's not wonder that politician brings with emotion front of voter. It's true but some diplomatic people are not understood.
|Anurag said: (Oct 21, 2016)|
In my point of view. Religion should not be mixed with politics because many politician members playing with humans feeling on name of religion for votes. There are riots in the country on name of religion.
Politician leader getting benefit.
|Sahari Gani said: (Oct 20, 2016)|
|When religion mixed with politic it absolutely damaging because the two has different mission. Alike angel vs devil.|
|Abhishek Verma said: (Oct 17, 2016)|
These political parties are playing with the emotions of public, for their own profit and the mentality of peoples has also changed so they support to their particular party, and due to this several communities grow up very fast due to unlimited opportunities and rest of the peoples are not able to do this just because of caste and religion, and its also responsible for corruption rate, which is not good for our developing country.
|Kavin Kumar said: (Oct 17, 2016)|
|In our country, most of the political parties depend on their caste-based votes. To maintain their vote bank they are playing with peoples emotions and converting peoples emotions into votes. Even peoples mentality has changed. People too wanted a representative from their own caste or religion. This is not healthy for a democratic nation.
|Tanu said: (Oct 5, 2016)|
In India, it is very common to mix politics with religion. The political party supports one particular religion for their vote bank. Here we can take the example of you. P. Where riots are the result of the mixing of politics and religion. Political party plays with the emotions of the people to get their votes under the name of religion/ minority. All this leads to the choosing a candidate who doesn't deserve the seat. We should try our best to give vote for the right candidate without influencing our decision because of religion.
|Kshitij said: (Oct 4, 2016)|
|Practically thinking if we rule any party we will surely favor the person belonging to us who run on our ethics on our value so that we could make good coordination with them and work more for the development of the country if this development comes from religion then I don't think that there is any thing wrong mixing religion with politics.|
|Priyanshu Yadav said: (Sep 18, 2016)|
|Hello friends, I agree with the topic that religion should not be mixed with politics.
As we all know the majority of our politician used this method to get votes from illiterate peoples. The partition between INDIAN, PAKISTAN is also an example of the mixing of religion with politics. In 1940, Muslim league decided to demand different country and they separated from Indian national congress. It all happened when religion mixed with politics. We have understood that and as a responsible citizen of the country, we should educate the people as more as possible.
Thanks to all the aspirants for giving their valuable time to read my view.
|Ravindra Patil said: (Sep 17, 2016)|
|According to me, religion should not mix with politics, for Example, Country like India which is multireligious, multicultural and diverse among the world because of politics its create communal tension between religions, last 69 years our politics playing around religion, which break the path of progress. We should keep national interest first then the religion. It is time to India grows our politics beyond religion, it all depends on our young generation I hope they will do it.|
|Aman Gupta said: (Sep 16, 2016)|
The main aim of a political system is to provide all-round growth to a society which in turn will lead to rise in status of each individual and providing strong foundation to nation but if "Religion is mixed with politics" the following side effects may a nation suffer.
1) An Uneven growth in the nation.
2) Rise in communal tension between different religion which can be a threat to nation peace.
3) Raising of such practices may even cause loss to humanity and people may get discriminated on the basis of religion in the time of need.
Moreover such kind of politics is raised by only those poltical parties whose first agenda is to meet their hunger for power and not in the improvement of society. On the above basis I want to conclude that religion should not be mixed with politics.
|Deepanshu Maheshwari said: (Sep 1, 2016)|
|I have a strong opinion that religion should not be mixed with politics because every religious have own moral value and ideal so if religion should mix with politics then fighting on religion occurs in the country.|

|Hello my friends,
I would like to say that yes, RELIGION should be mixed with politics, and the reason is quite clear and that is that we shouldn't talk about ideal things which are not at all applicable, leave the religion you can't even separate casteism from politics, so lets not change the fact lets improve it.
|Dimish said: (Aug 23, 2016)|
|I feel religion should be mixed with politics. Gandhiji said religion and politics should be mixed. When I say politics I mean the moral values which are the basic elements of politics.|
|Ayushi said: (Aug 22, 2016)|
|I completely agree with the topic. The religion of a leader can never express his thoughts towards society or towards a particular community. In my view today's Young & intellect youth should understand that those politicians who demand votes in the name of religion are simply fooling them & should discard them. Votes should only be cast on the basis of their thoughts & ideas towards the development of the nation.|
|Siba said: (Aug 14, 2016)|
|Religion is emotions of people. Some politicians for their vote bank particularly support one community. That creates conflict which is very bad for the society as well as the country. Politicians should ask for votes for the only development of their area. They should not mix Religion with politics.|
|Prateek Sehra said: (Aug 12, 2016)|
|I think religion should not be mixed with politics because if politics is mixed with the religion then you are playing with the feelings of a person for his/her religion. Religion is only made to worship different gods, not for the politics.|
|Sharukh said: (Aug 4, 2016)|
|Hi everyone, First of all, I would thanks to all the members for their thoughtful opinion. I also agree with this statement. Religion should not mix with politics. Politics means not to rule the nation but to work for the nation irrespective of religion, cast, colour etc. With humanity and together. If religion mixed with politics then all the political leaders divide themselves according to their community which is not good for us. And affect our education system. Education which is the most important part of any country for bright future, that also divided according to religion if we adopt politics with religion. I think without mixing the religion with politics we should follow our religion and should obey them.|
|Jiyaa said: (Aug 1, 2016)|
|According to me religion should not be mixed with politics as religion is belief, spirituality in one another wherein politics is meant to govern a nation, like the politicians mix religion to get votes and so there is a lot of racism, internal disputes would be more and there would be discrimination between people and our nation would no longer be secular.|
|Bhupendra Kumar said: (Jul 29, 2016)|
|Hello, everyone. 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.
Religion and politics are two extremists that cannot be put together, otherwise, it would devastate the unity, peace, and harmony in our only secular nation of the world.
As far religion is concerned, it should not be mixed with politics because politics is meant for all people of nation or state, we cannot give priority to an individual cast or majority, politicians should be those people who take the decisions and reforms not looking to a single group of people of sate or nation.
Thank you so much!
|Aadhithyan said: (Jul 26, 2016)|
|NO, I don't support this statement. Religion and Politics are one hell of a combination. Used properly it leads to the betterment of our country. I'm putting forward this statement because,
1. No religion in the world is against humanity.
2. No religion asks people to kill others to achieve something bigger.
3. It's the work of the religious heads that misinterpreted the essence of a religion.
Given a leader who is well-versed in his religion (whatever it may be), who is strong-minded, who can't be manipulated/misguided, our nation will become superpower within few years.
|Uttam Yeramalla said: (Jul 25, 2016)|
|No, religion should not be mixed with politics because if they do so some of the politicians may take advantage of this to increase their votes. Let us think if a politician who won in the name of religion would only full fill the promises that he or she gave it the particular religion. So this would violate the rule right to equality, right to opportunity and etc. Which is not good and this may lead to conflicts, war etc. For example the conflict between Andhra people and Telangana people which led to division of the state Andhra Pradesh into two states Telangana and Andhra Pradesh.|
|Suri said: (Jul 24, 2016)|
|I agree with this point and true also in our country politics mixing with religions. We had more religion political background parties in our country. Political leaders debate with each other forgot the problems of People.
Is it our country only for one religion? No, it is our country no matter how many religions in the country, and the only one thing we are all Indians. Some leaders get profit from creating the problems b|n the people.
|Ashiq Abdul said: (Jul 23, 2016)|
|The religions only use to identify the peoples which god they would have been followed. But its should not require for identification of democratic and politics. I think the politics is only touching with religion for the purpose "vote banking". Some politicians say this country is only for particular religion, not for other religion followers and go out the country. So the opposite religions people should take of politics party or religious org. So that is the reason for the religions is mixed with politics.|
|Anshul.Baghmare123@Gmail.Com said: (Jul 20, 2016)|
|Of course the real motive of politician is to rule their territory, and Indian has always been know for its secularity, so if the population of a territory has more 1 religious person then, the politician occupy an easy way to win the election by leaning towards that religion, this should not be there, because this would eventually lead to increase in terrorism, - see terrorism is what it's nothing but the coward people who can not do anything, because of their minority choose the path of violence. So again if the politician tries to get the vote in the name of religion its like a trap, the other candidate would automatically vote for his religious, this would create.|
|Vijai said: (Jul 18, 2016)|
|Ya of course religion can't be mixed with politics. Politician is the one who serves for the people. If religion get into politics most of the offers funds and all priorities are given to only a particular religious people.|

|Nowadays Religion, Regional, and Caste Issues become very sensitive only because people had concentrated on this and they mainly Ignored Environment, Humanity they have forgotten about the basic requirements which fulfill human needs.
Now come to the point that.
Why are Politicians mixing Religion in politics?
Answer is yes they can mix, it's one type of business/technique they follow to increase their vote Bank.
So as a people we have major powers to elect them, but So many of us are busy in ignoring politics, and some of us are busy in Trusting those bull shit words spoken by politicians.
And why politicians are mixing religions means, we ignored basic needs, Environment, Humanity and we are busy with religions, Castes, For getting reservations. That's why as to gain our votes politicians are mixing this sensitive issues into the picture. So if you start concentrating on basic needs, Environment, Humanity. They may change.

|In Iran religion and politics is mixed with religion and it is the best country in middle east.
It is the third country in engineering and the 14th country in medicine.
They proved that its possible to manage a country with religion.
They are an Islamic country. They believe that CHRISTIANITY is week and it's unable to manage a country but Islam is not.
|Amir said: (Jul 12, 2016)|
|By responding to the arguments of people who claim that politics is separate from religion, it will be proven that this cannot be the case and that religion is part and parcel of politics. To those who say that the essence of politics and the essence of religion are at odds and for this reason they cannot be combined, the following can be said: Religious politics means the management of a society based upon the values and criterion of religion, in order that the society reaches wholeness and true balance; there does not exist any logical contradictions in the issue of religious politics.
In response to the argument that religious laws are matters that are "on occasion", it must be stated that this is not only applicable to religion or the precepts of religion in the political arena, but it applies to every body of laws which is in existence (all of these are based on circumstances and the situation at hand).
Also, in response to the argument that religion is an unchangeable matter and the world and its politics are always changing, and therefore, an unchangeable body is unable to manage something which is always in a state of change, it is said that: religion and this world both possess changeable and non-changeable aspects, and each part of religion has to do with its corresponding part of worldly matters. In relation to those who say that Islamic jurisprudential management is inefficient or incompetent, it must be said that Islam takes into consideration all changing and nonchanging aspects of individual and social life and guides people to a correct way of life with all of these aspects factored in. The existence of the jurisprudential method, which is the standard way of understanding religion, provides and ensures the correct understanding of this religion. In addition, it opens the possibility of answering new questions which come about.

|They should because they go together hand in hand.
It is written that the governments of the world would be on the shoulders of Christ and that he would rule forever with his commandments, laws, and statutes. A kingdom without an established foundation is a kingdom that will not stand.
|Krishna said: (Jul 4, 2016)|
|Obviously, it's true that religion shouldn't be mixed with politics. But here we have to think the root cause of it. Is it because of the politicians who play with the religious sentiments of people? Or is it because of the people who set boundaries for themselves based on their religion and caste? Only when there is a point of conflict available for them, the politicians or anyone try to cash it. A political leader is just a representative of the society/his constituency. It is obvious that in our country each region is being dominated by a single religion or caste. Automatically, the leader thus elected will be of the dominant religion/caste and after the election, he serves his community the most. This will raise the social inequalities further and creates an unrest in the society.|
|Souvik said: (Jul 4, 2016)|
|Religion should not be mixed with politics as this two things are different things politics is the way through which we are realising our duties towards our nation. Religion means a way to link ourselves with god. If politics and religion will be mixed then it will lead to discrimination.|
