Yes, it does for sure. All religions preach communal harmony but it\'s people, for thier own interests and selfish ends propagate against ethical, moral and sacred religious values...!

The principle and aim of all religions are the same - provide happy and peaceful living by observing certain religious requirements and developing a common spiritual awareness. Unfortunately religious people have started behaving as political ones, eager to increase one\'s strength by showing others in bad light. They divide people though appear to unite their own religious people more tightly. Only the moto: \"Whatever be the religion, it\'s enough if people become good\" can unite people of all religions. Let us dream for such a universal religion.

I don\'t think so.It is only the vested interets from different religions who try to mislead the people n force them to fight among themselves.Religion ,no where has said of any division or hatred for other religions.

As Steven Weinberg tells Religion is an insult to human dignity. With or without it, you\'d have good people doing good things and evil people doing bad things, but for good people to do bad things, it takes religion.
Humanity is the supreme of all religions of the world. Deep down inside us, we all know that the most important thing in life is much more than winning for ourselves.
The most important thing in this life is to help others to win. Even if that means slowing down and changing our own race. A generous heart, kind speech, and a life of service and compassion are the things which renew humanity .... and that\'s the best religion , nothing else.
