The fact is they are inseparable, they can't be separated by our will.

And looking for development there is no development possible by politics without proper principles and guidelines given by religion.

I agree with most of you. But if we take religion totally out of politics then there will a formation of corrupt world because following any religion teaches you to be trustworthy to be ethical, it teaches you morality. And if this is taken out of our politics then our political leaders will automatically show there real sides that is selfishness, Greediness, corrupt mindset and all. And this is all because as they are not following any religion so they don't have any fear from within that doing wrong with others will ultimately lead to my problems which is all taught in any religion. Guys, I agree with you that religion should not be mixed with politics but I don't agree totally and I will stick to my viilew point because I'm not saying that only one religion should be mixed. I am saying that religion should be mixed with politics but every religion should be mixed with flexibility that is people should be free to accept and follow religion of there wish. Thanks that's it.

In reality, if we truly understand the meaning of religion then it will never become a part of politics. Religion stands for love towards god. God has provided us with everything that is necessary for our livelihood. Even animals are also provided but we the human being can only understand this and show our love for whatever we have been given.

Hindu, Muslim, Christian, Sikh. All of them have different ways but the purpose is same i.e. love towards god. Since God has multiple names, fames, power, forms etc that is why he is a god.

If these facts will get clear to everyone then they might not collapse with each other under the conspiracy of poor politicians who for personal greed makes religion a part of politics.

I think religion and politics should not be mixed because both are two different things.

1. In our country there is so many religion, taking one will only lead to conflict, as taking one means only that religion is superior.

2. Today a lot of Riots are happening around our country just because of religion, they think there religion is better than each other which is not correct every religion is equal.

3. For every person, his or her religion is the think on which he or she has their pride whereas politics is a thing which is done for all the people of the country not for only a single person for their welfare so both are very different we should not mix both.

4. India is a secular country and by that, we should know that no religion is superior and no religion is down.

First, what is politics?,

It is a mix of policies and power and, religion it is faith. Politics includes everything, so it includes religion too, but politics should not be religious. Just as others said our country is democratic and if religion and politics are mixed it may become a major issue. As one religious group may dominate the other which we do not need. It is not wise to have favour on one religion as when our leaders have tried it has created a communal issue.

I think Politics should subserve religion.

But this is first if we redefine what is religion. In the history of India, people have stood for Truth. Without politics able to take interest in Truth without being blamed for being non- secular, this country that has always lead in truth has now been an obstacle by this secular argument which considers religion for a way of living a life on earth rather than knowing the Truth. The quality of religion is being destroyed and the argument is becoming about the rights of each religion rather than live in the Truth that there is only one religion, one god and so merge all the religions as one, there is only one history, we don't have to follow blind faith but excel in this knowledge, but not allowing religion in the arena is making people only interested in money and politics, so politics serve the economy and capitalism only, that is the disaster and religion is used for gains too but not for what it really is.

We also know that our constitution has described the country to be secular and democratic. The two terms politics and religion may be different but in the modern world, everyone has their own problems. What, I mean to say is that politics, if looked on the brighter side can be a very good way of overcoming the problems in India. People of different religions have their own problem to solve and to help the fact, politics can be proved a very good method to represent different problems in parliament. Moreover, a feeling of equal representation can be achieved. Think about it.

In my opinion, I still believe that religion and politics should never be mixed. In a country like ours where people of innumerable religious beliefs sustain together, it will not be a wise decision to favour a certain religion. Whenever our political leaders have tried to favour one religion over the others, it has only led to communal violence. This vote-bank politics is also a major reason for the hatred between Hindus and Muslims in India. November 2018 saw devastating consequences in Nigeria due to the mixing of religion and politics during their elections. Taking the values of religion to administer a nation is always a good decision, but mixing people's faith with politics is threatening to the world.

Everybody knows that our country is a secular country and also democratic. In our country all the people have rights to raise their voices, speech and expression according to the country and the government. Ok!let's come to the topic. If religion mixes with politics how an country be called has secular. It will lead to a big problem for a country. For example mainly during elections if one representative or a politician of a party gives wrong speech about his opposition or blames him it leads to a big problem. So, now let's put a religious representative or politician, the same will happen one representative will blame on another religion their will be conflicts between the religions. Of course, the whole country will become a war arena because of the fights and conflicts between the religions. In my opinion, religion and politics should not be mixed.

I would say religion and politics are two completely different aspects. But nowadays religion is being used for politics.

There are too many Hindu Muslim and Christian fights. Why?

If a politician thinks that he could do good for the nation using his capabilities then he shouldn't use the religion factor.

And because of this mixing of religion with politics people go with their religion ignoring the capabilities or skills of the political leader.

I completely agree with the fact that religion should never be a part of politics because it just eliminates the factor of politics there. There are only communal fights and wars.

I think it should be. If we look at countries like India, which consist of such a large diversity, it should be mixed for the sake of the country's real majority. When politicians mix religion with the politics, intentionally or unintentionally they enhance the societal system and encourage the social life of an individual. I am not talking about the welfare of discrimination but the acknowledgement for the thinking of people who are really in a minority.

As in India politicians mainly fight with the perception regarding Hindu and Muslim but the truth is, Muslim are not real minority there are many states in which Muslims are in majority.

And religion is the basic factor of social occasions practised by any individual and hence if mixing religion with politics can benefit one"s social practice then why not it shouldn't.

And even politicians don't look into this matter.

So, I conclude that instead of saying religion and politics should not mixed they can name thier party as Christian or hindu because the name of a party is just a cover. There's nothing like Romanticism of country in politics and moreover its a power play.

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.

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.

Politics is directly related with the people so it cannot be independent of the origin of people.

I strongly believe that religion should not be mixed with politics because;

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.

Hi,

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
