All roads lead to Rome. All religions preach the same message, the Message of Peace and Unity.

In fact, religion is purely a personal domain and it should not be brought to the public debate. Violence in the name of religion is rubbish. We being humans must use the faculties the Creator has endowed us. Even those who don't have faith on God or Creator should not make a mess out of it. They can follow their own conviction without violating other's freedom or rights.

But so much violence is being created today in the name of religion & God. The recent controversy that is raging the country is 'Forceful Conversions'. It is the time for intellects of the country to help the society in maintaining peace and religious tolerance.

If you read any sacred text of any religion in the world, the message is same. It is to nurture human values and respect the life.

On the eve of Merry Christmas, let us look at the Message of Jesus Christ. The Holy Book Bible is full of snippets of the wisdom of Jesus.
If you read the Holy Book Bible, there is no difference in the sayings of Jesus to what Krishna taught in Bhagavad Gita and the sayings of Muhammad Pravakta in Qur'an.

India is known as the country of religious tolerance which Swami Vivekananda propagated at his famous Chicago Address in America more than a century ago. we are not true Indians if we don't respect all religions. This attitude must spread in the society for brotherhood and harmony.

The central message of the life of Jesus is the sacrifice for the sake of others. It means, serve the humanity leaving your personal comforts behind.

Swami Vivekananda, the torchbearer of India's Spiritual Wisdom to the West was a great admirer of Jesus Christ. As mentioned in his 'Complete Works', between 1888- 1893 when he travelled within India, he accompanied two books, one of which is 'The Imitation of Christ, written by Thomas a Kempis.

In many of his tours in the West, Swamiji was often referred as Hindu Monk, but he is a true messenger of all religions and he spoke a lot on Christ, Muhammad, Buddha and other wisdom masters.

Persecution is not a solution nor enmity a way out for a peaceful coexistence. To keep the fabric of society united, respecting all religions is the need of the hour and there is no difference of opinion on this count by any religion!

Wish you Happy Merry Christmas!
