Be Cautious

Reader comment on item: Away with Crusaders, Crucifixes, Crosses, and Christmas

Submitted by Sebastian (India), Sep 30, 2006 at 01:00

Respected Sir,

I read the article..... I was as usual cautious about the inner intricacies that guide the Muslim hierarchy to go for any kind of actions, both in the past and present...and am sure about the future course too...

If one looks at the history of any religion we do find ups and downs, both good and bad, But the spirit of the founding fathers.... the God inspired people... should give us the clue to the Real Spirit at work, namely, as Jesus said, judge the tree by its fruits. so if God is so loving and merciful., She/He expects us to be loving and merciful to one another. If this Spirit is not there in human agents...then one is not true to the Spirit that comes from above..... Again Jesus says in the Gospel according to Luke... 'out of the abundence of the heart that the mouth speaks'

Violence we find in the histories of all religion...but what calls us all today is to be vigilant as not to fall prey to these religious fanatics who thrive on an innocent people's ignorance....Ignorant people, by which, i do not only mean the ordinary people on the road but also the ones in the Government posts in charge of our security and safety.

may God almight bless all and give us the spirit to uphold freedom and happiness. It is to this end, that Christ came to the world and has given us the command to bring good news to all...Good news can never be at the cost of my neighbour's death, his wife being widowed or his children orphaned.

Yours sensitively to one and all
