Are Christens and Muslims Idol Worshipers?

Original concept had been to have a visible object to understand the god. Pastors for their selfish interests made people believe in that the idol itself is the god. Offerings to the god were channelised through these pastors. This did created problems and hence, scholars of religion took a different stand and banned worship of an idol.

Religion: Universal Brotherhood

Indian philosophy considers that there is only 1 religion in the universe. Therefore, there is no need to name a religion. This aspect was brought out and preached by Swami Vivekananda. Swamiji believed that Indian philosophy states that religion has 2 parts. The first part is philosophy. Philosophy gives general outline and direction for behaviour of persons while they are working in a society. This part is universal and eternal. Swamiji stated that Indian name for this is “Vedanta” The second part is laws and rules for specific situation. This is named as “Smriti” Smriti is neither universal nor eternal. Minimum factors governing Smriti are place, time and society. Smriti guides people in society in respect of behaviour in society under different circumstances. Vedanta and Smriti form a religion. Therefore, it is incorrect to compare religions based on Smriti. On same analogy no religion can be superior or inferior to any other religion. This is understandable because Vedanta part, is exactly same to every religion. The name differs only because of Smriti. Smriti is neither universal nor eternal. It changes with time, place and society. Hence, understanding a person based on religion is wrong.

This is the best way to fool citizens, divert their attention from real day to day problems and make them ready to sacrifice.

I am not as big a culprit as projected by opposition parties:

Dr. Manmohan Singh, Prime Minister of India said during interview given to leading journalists in India on 16th February 2011 at New Delhi (India) claimed that he is not responsible for any actions his ministers as much as claimed by the media. During the whole interview it appeared that he was pleading

Can China be a Friend of any Country?:

China is one of the oldest civilisation and Chinese people maintain values of life. Thanks to the Buddhist culture. However, rulers are different. They have been concentrating on fastest development (not the fastest as possible). Rulers are ready to compromise with ethics and all values.
