Dear Sir, Hamid Mahmood

Each religion has gots its own religious Books,the scriptures. these scriptures contain the Advice of the apostles .Each scriptures contains directives of their own times and social system .Ita basis was the exchange of ideas of the present social system . To restrain the inner sin of man keeping pace with time different scriptures were written and the social norms were introduced .Its object was to restrain man and keep him free from the evil power.

It is useless to find out if these scriptures contain the existance of god or not . The scriptures were made to do human good and established the truth. But in modern age man has abandoned the purpose and truth of the scriptures and adopted the superstitious customs and thereby causing his own harm instead of truth .For example most of the people do not read the Holy Koran in their own language ,and hence without realising the real meaning of the scripture quarrel with each other with great hatred .As a result the society looses peace and its path of development is always hindered .

Sura 2 Aiyat 213 ,Man was single nation and God send messanger------------------------- Sura 5 Aiyat 15 ,o;people of the scripture now hath our messanger ------------------------

It is better to obey the advices made in the scripture instead of finding out the existance of God in the book .No message has come as a book from the heaven ,and neither they were made by any apostles ,history has proved that . The perfectness of the scriptures can be realised only through its inherent good advises and the good it does to man and his society . If the scriptures are really the ideas of god existance then man can never change or abandon them.Enquiryhas praved that in each and every stage,in accordance with time each and every religious book can be changed .In ages togather religious wise men have amended themessage of the scriptures ,likewise ;much of its sanctity was disturbed in the hand of the selfish irreligious man. Modern world has proved that how much of the scriptures are real and how much of them are Unreasonable .

Sura 2 Aiyat 4, And he who believe in revelation--------------------------------------------------------------------------------Sura 2 Aiyat 41, And believe in what i revealed --------------------------------------------------------------------------------- All religious books have one bond only .In this context it can be mentioned that in some of the scriptures the message of the God has been described in a simple way and in some others the are described in a complex form .As man uses different types of cloth in one body ,likewise God has given the same advises to man through his different apostles .To hide this truth the infidals have explained his message wrongly and made them willingly complex to create discrimination among the man and the scriptures.

Sura 2 Aiyat 111, And they say ;none shall enter paradise The basis of Heaven or Hell is human character .The identity of a human character does not depend on any religion or community . Some men set their own superstition in the high place of severity and try to bring Heaven under their control . Butthey are mistaken , whether the soul of a man will go to Heaven after his death or will be thrown into the Hell . All these depends on the character that he keeps during his life time .To give legal validity to this behaviour of human race or human being religious rites and rituals have been introduced . Some men merely consider the observances of religious rites and rituals as their only objective and thus set aside the practice of honest character and think that they are virtually leaving in fool paradise and this begins the sins in them .devoid of honest alive ,no prayer or worship can reach God .

Sura 2 Aiyat 121,Those to whom we have sent the book Bhagvad Gita Chapter 4 Hymn 11 ,As all surrender unto me I reward the accorgingly- The message of the scriptures are prepared for the huminity and civilised society .The explanation made against the humanity ,love , honesty of self discipline induces men for sin .The explanation which do not tally with the meaning and reading of the book must have to be rejected altogether .God has not given any man any right to change the ideas of the message in his owm way ,The message of the scriptures should be studied understandably and their depth should be realised as well.

By God command man should observe the present social condition carefully, andshould include only those ideologies in the society which speaks of Good ,the more a man reveals in his character and behaviours the idea of God ,he receives more and more peace .Some evil minded men add stories with the scriptures to earn more money ,and thus to satisfy their interest .Such evil minded men should be found out and their evil design should be demolished altogether .That is the main duty of man . God has given the sense ti judge what is good and what is bad.

Sura 2 Aiyat 79, Then woe to those who write the book Sura 3 Aiyat 71 ,You the people of book why you cloth the truth Sura 7 Aiyat 13 ,Follow oh man!the revelation given unto you All the existing communities and the scriptures of the modern world only directs of man and humanity .All the apostles worked hard for thispurpose .

All the languages of this world are the creation of the nature ,and the entire nature is under the command of God .Hence it is totally meaningless to have a desire to gain or acquire virtue by reading the book or the scripture in any particular language .Every one has the right to read the scripture in his own mother tongue or vernacular language .Those who compel men to read the scripture in an unintelligible language and makes law in this regard they are the real Sinner .By GOd grace moderm wotld does not have much discrimination in language .

Since man read the scriptures in an un understandable language ,hence he has developed religious differences among themselves . Being dependent on other for acquiring the religious training he has become addicted to unreasonable behaviour to cram or by heart the message sent through the apostles without realising that they too are in reality the message of God ,is also an religious and superstitions act. Religious never gives an education of blind faith or unreasonable .Rather man can be freed from superstition only through religion .Irreiligious activities in the name of religion nevers suit the man ,the best of all creatures .By providing him with reason and consciousness God has lifted man from the darkness and lead him to light . By God grace without coming in touch with the religious books man is capable of finding the right or wrong.The scripture is the guide-- which inspires man to walk through the honest way.

The scriptures like the Vedas ,The Gita ,tripitak ,The Bible ,The Guru Granth ,and The Holy Koran ------All are there in this world ,and the person obeying these books more or less are also there .I think that the men obeying the scriptures and the scriptures themselves are there by the wishes of God and it is equally true that the religious base of all these scriptures and their ideas are the same . NO SCRIPTURES HAVE DESCRIBED ANY TYPES OF WORSHIP METHOD AND GOD IS NOT EXPECTANT OF ANY WORSHIP .THe God have explained the same advises in different ways .Each and Every religious book advised the quality of Honesty and Self Discipline .To prove this as well as to Wardoff the differences between men and the apostles .

Sura 6 Aiyat 159---As for those who divide their religion SURA 10 Aiyat 19 ;Mankind was one nation Sura 16 Aiyat 93 If God so willed Religious book paves the ground of mans development .so that man can live a peaceful life . Byt when these scriptures stands on the way of development mans peace is shattered and he become puzzled .

In this context the Famous saying of poet 'Rabindra Nath Tagore '---- If religious stands as an obstruction to the development of society and take the form as a mountain on the way of the development of man then it is better to Demolish that mansion named Religion .

It does not mean what explanation was given by the Muslim Ulemas are full of truth and science .If you are a pure Muslim by your thought you should realise what ever is happening in this world including the scientific invasion are purely desire of Allah .No Q to ignore the modern world for those who have faith on Allah .

Thanking you
