Hatred equipped with severe hostility leads to brutality. It is the greatest sin of humanity in the name of caste or religion. If one is truly religious, he will never act like a person of evil. If only he believes revenge is the only way to fulfill his goal, he is highly mistaken. To err is human. Being human knowingly or unknowingly, every being of any religion, be it a Hindu, Muslim, Christian or any person of any faith makes mistakes and commits sins. Present day’s intimidation is like punishing the current world for the sins of yester years. Remember, taking revenge in a hateful manner is not the solution.
True followers of a religion, true persons of faith in the Lord do not ignore the same in other beings. Being religious and having read in the scriptures that God is all pervading, omni present and omniscient, don’t they realize that the same Lord resides in others too? Don’t they ponder on the fact that the same Lord is watching them, their terrified minds, dreadful acts and the petrified devastation?
Now is the time for them to let go of the hatred sitting inside each one of them since years and ages. They should inherit nobility and not hostility. Let love be hereditary and not hatred and violence. There are even people of one’s own religion who are losing their lives because of their acts. Let alone people of their religion; isn’t Humanity one religion? There should be only one religion in the whole world and that should be Religion of Love; there should be only one caste- the Caste of Humanity.
By their acts of violence, they do not put an end to their problems but in fact, they augment the intensity of detestation. This in turn leads to more violence and hostility by people of all religions and countries. They worsen the situation but never improve. Do they ever realize the pain of others? Did they ever face such terrific pain of near-death before? If so, they would have no hearts to hurt and rob others’ lives.
Death is something precious which can be had only once in a life time. So why not die peacefully? Natural death is supposed to be a greatest gift to humanity. When humanity cannot accept the death caused by the nature itself, how can they accept terrific death caused by co-human beings? When humanity is destined to die naturally, what right do they have to be a cause of aberrant death? When they themselves do not have control on their own lives and deaths, how can they make themselves the demolishers of human lives?
It is now time for them to realize that Love is the only way to kill hatred from their own selves. Let them not take others’ lives in to their hands. Let the humanity not be deprived of their rights of human life. Let them live and die at the grace of their fate and Lord. Let the earth rest in Peace. Let them realize to hate the hatred and not the person. Ferocity is not a solution for problems. It in fact is a problem in itself creating more problems. Bloodbath is not a solution for peace. Bathing oneself in the ocean of mercy and love help humanity breathe peace. Above all, what ever religion, caste, creed, and country they belong to, which part of the dark world they live in, God is eternally watching them. Can’t the great God who created those beings trace their actions and where about?
“The only way to control aggression in the world is to pray to God to replace souls of hatred with Love.” - Sharmila Sanka
