Religion: An Important Question To Allow In Modern State! Poem by Pranab K Chakraborty

Religion: An Important Question To Allow In Modern State!

Rating: 4.4


Institutional religion should be terminated by the state
to promote individual religious faith

constitution and obligatory mandates
imposed by the religious institutions
many times consider people as their slave
just to carry the orders by the name of Almighty

individual belief always finds transition
by making relation with God
through the path of love and compassion
eager to enjoy the divine bliss with submission
whereas institutions committed to impreach
imperialistic superiority

different religious constitution
ornamented with the options
to infiltrate mesmerising attitude
towards fighting, war and invasion
to conquer and domination


individual belief never admit war by the name of Almighty
except the self suffering to penetrate
another world of grace and celestial serenity

state should terminate all the institution
providing opportunity
to the civilisation to stand on feet
for another thousands of year to keep exist
civilisation known as human civilisation!

Religion must be the pathway to life eternal. To earn this eternal paradise man has to live a life that pleases God. God is love. If that be so, man must live God's love. He cannot say, I love god' and then hates his fellow men.. Institutions must feed and nurture this pathway of love so that man finds peace on earth and later, in heaven. If he has faith in this pathway and practices it, he feels life fulfilled. But then this 'pathway' is a relationship between God and man. For this reason, man will love one another because he loves God. God is love. Why then terminate the 'pathway'?

Institutionalized religion, I fear, is doing more harm than good! Religion instead of fostering love and compassion among fellow beings has stooped to fanaticism and bigotry! I think more bloodshed is there in the name of religion than in any rebellion! Actually all religions teach the ways to righteous living and preach great values..... So religion in itself is not bad at all, but man is using religion to enjoy power and to mould people in a frame that will leave them blind! As long as man doesn't change, there is not going to be any difference even if religion is reinstated or abolished! Let man learn to love his fellow beings! From there change begins!

People are people. Religion is religion. Faith is faith. Love must be scattered above all.

This is a very controversial topic! It is not easy to take religious faith away from man, because he continuously find solace in faith in his religious affiliations to douse his fears of the present and the uncertainty. Institutional religions however are becoming somehow problematic because of human's animalistic desires. Individual religion will not, in almost similar situation, work because there will never be coordination and control. It is a sad situation! ! ! Thanks for sharing! ! !

To Honorable Poet Sebastian: God is not only love, people discovered God in ancient time as a creator, saver and destroyer. 'Pathway' perhaps not the religion, LOVE is the pathway to attain that Almighty. Religion is simply a constitution depends on socio-economic situations perhaps, so the constitution (religion) differs by community and people of geographical variances. Many religion means constitutions are many on the surface. I salute you because you have interacted by heart with this problem of the day. Thank you very much.

All religions fall due to the idleness imperfections of the individuals within them, all that attained traction once prospered due to the strengths charismatic abilities of original founders and early followers, perhaps the lesson is we are supposed to lead with ability not follow with hypocrisy.
