Communalism is a product of insecurity...When people are insecured physical, mental, economical, political and social then they form a community.. This communities differ and vary its capabilities...The variation in capabilites again create sense of insecurity towards the existence...These insecurites towards perishness makes the communal voilence.. Remember, Anger and Voilence is not strength but weakness of cowards, non-knowledgeable and inequipped persons..Those who are brave, knowledge and equipped and peace and settled..

All those who are brave, knowleged and equipped are all Budhas, Krishnas, Mohammads, Jesuses, Moseses and Abrahams..It is all there in US..

Sorry we don\'t need them. If you study history you will find these people were opportunists( I am not so sure about Buddha) who gave a divine angle to gather followers. In their times too their opponents far outnumbered their followers. The dragon of communalism is fed by the state(politicians) itself. For instance, in history there is mention of King Shivaji looting the traders of Surat, then there are stories of his killing Afjal Khan and defeating many other moughals and to specifically mention that m k gandhi was assassinated by Nathuram Godse. Historically nothing is wrong. But all the Gujaratis irrespective of whether they had any relation with Surat or whether gandhi had helped them or conned, have developed hatred against the Maharashtrians. The same is with muslims. Its really difficult to handle this issue. You can\'t change history but historical books should have a foot note that these events are history and people should not continue with the hate. I think all the governm ...more

World would probably be a better place to live in had not any of these messiahs, sons or messenger of God or avatars had come. It is because these type of various heavenly people had stepped down on this earth leaving their heavenly abode we have so many divisions, opinions and animosity. If Mosses had not existed the Jews would not have suffered in search of their promised land. Had Jesus and Mohammad had not come there would not be mass killing of people in the name of Jihad or Crusade. Had Krishna not come down Mahabharata would not have taken place. Had Ram not come down there would not have been any Janam Bhumi dispute in Ayodhya. The dragons of communalism are actually walking on the foot prints left by these Prophets and Avatars. If more such souls set foot on this earth they will only add some more religion, cult or sect, which would mean more division and more disputes in future. Actually when God created this universe he created the earth for human and other life force. He ...more
