When the end????.......




Barren Bastille, languished by unnerving monstrous accinge....rusted beatitudes.....Impelled to loose penetration.....limoused hopes searching where people left their polemics....those zetetic thoughts stopped intruding into the conscience of lives......manacled intuition confusing that anfractuous maze, making meander towards an unseen destiny....... 


Religious imperialism contaminating consciousness ,constraining to attain imperturbable liberty..
The religious attrition is establishing a pandemic imperialism leading to emanation of never ending redoubtable crimes. It is really a loathsome spirit which effuses desolating inhuman acts.
How one can forget that detriment attack on Mumbai which enveloped the entire city with its cruel eccentricity for nearly 59 hours, proved to be one of the bloodiest pages in the history of religious butchery. And within a short span the city started speaking about another bloodthirstiness in the heart of terrorists.!
         Those devastated buildings, withered corpses, obfuscating agony, roberant obsession, frozened tears, suffocation….sprinkled blood encompassed the whole environment, darkness captured the city glory… lost the charm  with a quick boisterous invasion which extinguished the whole majesty …fumes spoke about the incident. The unbridled ebullition whisked the lives into a world of hell within few seconds.
 
         The most intricate question is where this vicious spirit rooted? what makes the people to effuse the most desperate acts in name of religion?.......
              
        Well the history speaks about the many such  inhuman acardiac actions especially with respect to antimonarchical fights, cast discrepancy or disdained people stories.
The crusades against the Albigensian in the thirteenth century, proved to be the bitterest.. The sacrifices of the Goth and Mexican, and the revolting cruelties of the Polynesian and the negro of Dahomy, are scarcely equal to the savage butcheries
         Sismondi's History of Crusades against the Albigenses, remind a passage from Wheaton's Northmen. "The religion of Odin stimulated the thirst of blood by promising the joys of Valhalla (heaven) as the reward of those who fell gloriously in battle." Which is the better, the religion of the Northman or the Catholic? The former has at least the redeeming feature of bravery, while the last is distinguished only for its ferocity. Mahomet might be justly indignant if compared with Simon de Montfort.
           
         Prescott, speaking of the Aztec or Mexican human sacrifices and the Inquisition, gives the preference to the former; for the Inquisition, he remarks, not only "branded its victims with infamy in this world, but consigned them to everlasting perdition in the next." he says: "Few will sympathize, probably, with the sentence of Torquemada, who concludes his tale of woe by coolly dismissing the soul of the victim (of Mexican sacrifice) to sleep with those of his false gods in hell."


       The massacre of St. Bartholomew is another terrible proof of the power of religious faith to convert man into a fiend. Probably thirty or forty thousand victims perished in Paris and in the provinces in this one butchery! And it would be almost impossible to describe the variety of forms in murder, or to give a catalogue of the cruelties practiced. Even children of ten or twelve years engaged in the work of blood, and were seen cutting the throats of heretic infants!
 
      The revolting spectacles of the auto-da-fe, continued for so long a period, could not fail to have the most hardening influence on Spaniards feelings. In Spain, as in Italy, religion is associated with crime, and protected (protects it?) by its sanctions. Thieves and prostitutes have their images of the Virgin, their prayers, their holy water, and their confessions. Murderers find a sanctuary in the churches and convents. Crimes of the blackest character are left unpunished in consequence of the immunities granted to the clergy."

     The religious cruelty not only succumb the lives but will have emasculating effects on the mainstay of people.People who lost faiths,hopes ,intuition and everything are living in some obscure obsession, unspoken fights ,dried up desires, thoughts bonded with fear, confused conscience , silent cry ,proving  dumb evidences for the past misery. The same red stained blood flows in each ,the same wind blows for all, the same  planet shelters all its creations, and the same evolution goes on….Still people believe in unproven differentiations and illogical beliefs and practices.



















A lot of introspecting questions converging again to one more question…..Still we cannot let our hopes perished, should live in an obfuscating expediency to emancipate the nation from the devil perils in the name of religion, God and rational discrimination..

Religious practices are the basic steps to move forward. It is like starting steps of learning to write "abcd". But when we grown even though we write everything with these letters, we understand the feeling and emotions with sentances. Spirituality is the meaning and sentences which we need to learn as we grow to adulthood. But people not like to grow in this matter and even educated goes to religious than spiritualistic as they are not interested to grow or somebody not telling them how to grow?
