Religion Communalism & Politics

Religion Communalism & Politics
Many countries including India have in their population, followers of different religions. Unlike gender differences, the religious differences are often expressed in the field of politics.
(a) Different considerations about religion and politics :
1. Gandhiji used to say that religion can never be separated from politics. He believed politics must be guided by ethics drawn from religion.
2. Human rights groups in our country have argued that most of the victims of communal riots in our country are people from religious minorities. They have demanded that the government take special steps to protect religious minorities.
3. FAMILY LAW of all religions discriminate against women, so government should change these laws to make them more equitable.
Ideas, ideals and values drawn from different religions can and perhaps should play a role in politics. People should be able to express in politics their needs, interests and demands as a member of a religious community. These political acts are not wrong as long as they treat every religion equally.
