Religion - Poem by Asit Kumar Sanyal

I am a Hindu
I got my religion by birth
by blood
I can change my religion any moment
but can't give it up
Society never accepts ‘no religion' person
But why I shall bear the religion?

Religion is based on the idea of sin
It anchors believers to the Iron Age
injects fear in the mind,
poison in the heart
It teaches hate, helplessness,
And animal cruelty.

Religion is against of enjoyment
It promotes tribalism,
Backward ideas, harmful policies,
Insists on unprotected sex, more children
Makes Ideas unquestionable
Compels not to question religious teachers.

Religion is a delusion, tool of suppression
It opens the door of magical thinking
Dissuades societal improvement.
rejects scientific facts
medical help, modern technology
Supports incorrect history.

Religion increases divorce rate
Diverts generous impulses, good intentions
Increases crime, terror
Religion keeps the people in ignorance
Washes brain carefully
Makes the people fool.

Religion seeks power
Consumes resources, donations
Loves 'killing', rape, brutality
It turns myths, falsehoods into truth
Makes the people communal
Prejudice between people.

Religion creates several schools within
creates groups, sub-groups, discrimination
Also racialism, conflict, arguments, Wars.
Throws virtue out of faith
Religion is not beneficial to people
It takes more than it gives.

Religion is a bondage
It's imprisonment
It's an invisible chain around my spirit
It's binding not only my body
but my soul too
They made me their slave.

Why I should bear a religion
I am not a sheep or goat or a cow
I am a human being
I don't need a shepherd to control me
No one needs it
But They said … It's the must.
