Non payment of dues, manipulation of taxes , cheating the govt, misappropriating public funds , dealing in stolen goods takes place in every community and religion but why then isolate jain community alone for these social aberrations .bit unfair in my opinion.Every day crores of rupees is deposited in Tirupathy temple as donation and does that mean all the money came from legitimate route? . No mam , i do not think so . These deviations are human behavioural deviations from truth and religion has nothing to do with it . At best one may ask what is the use of religious preachings when all these anti social activities are indulged by people of all religions will be more of an apt question .

By their Ignorance - Ignorance of the Truth. It is not only with Marwaries or jains but applies to almost all barring a few people which are not governed by their caste but by their own Consciousness.

Yes, it is true that in this materialistic life, money has become the paramount concern of all - be it Marwaries or Jainies. whether one is in service or in business or he or she is in politics, all are involved in corrupt practices to earn more and more.

Unaccounted money ,infact taxpayer\'s money like you and me, in millions of billions lying in Swiss bank is not of only Marwaries or Jainies.but all those powerful people of our country including politicians for whom money is everything in life.
