Dear Gem,
Good evening.
No holy scriptures has any scope of misinterpretation. It is those preachers who have created hatred between religions because of **HOLIER THAN THOU** attitude and superiority complex.

Holy scriptures never tell anything wrong. But the selfstyled holy men interpret these for spreading hatred and intolerence towards other religions. The preachers of all religions should teach tolerance towards other faiths.

Invention of religion by man was to turn man against man. The scriptures were only an excuse.

All religions are meant to lead its followers a path of spirituality. Spirituality in itself is a purification process to sift the grain from the chaff. It gathers the grain into the barn and collects the husk to be burned at the end of this purification process. Right now, the religions are doing the same. It is separating good from the evil. The words in the scripture are the two edged sword. There are people who interpret it correctly; and then there are others who misinterpret it. Thus, it divides and creates a rift. It is something, which is inevitable. Whatever is happening is happening at God's behest and therefore all these things worry me the least.

Yes indeed I agree wholeheartedly with you. No holy scripture of any religion advocates hatred and to kill in the name of Religion but the religious fanatics and Zealots have tried to find loopholes in their religion and have tried to fan the religious sentiments of their people by delibrate provocation and wrong interpretation.. Religious Wars were fought way back in History. So this tendency isn't novel in anyway.. In every century we had these miscreants who have been like the spolit apples in a basket of clean healthy apples. Due to these few spoilt apples the rest are at risk of getting if not spoilt atleast marred in its texture..and taste..I hope you get the allusion...here...!
