''LET A MAN KNOW HE IS HIMSELF, A SPIRITUAL BEING, THAT HE IS CAPABLE OF THE POWER OF CHOICE AND HAS THE RIGHT TO ASPIRE TO GREATER WISDOM AND YOU HAVE STARTED HIM UP A HIGHER ROAD.'' —L. Ron Hubbard Do you agree with what Mr Hubbard said or not? and why?

I agree with Mr Hubbard for the following reason: religion, similar to any other aspect, should be a personal choice, not something forced upon you. Religion is not merely an inheritance, a tradition past down from one generation to another, it should be thouroughly understood, studied,and discussed. Freedom is very important; it is the highest level of spirituality. without it, one cannot gain wisdom or knowledge.

    Historically, religion has been linked to hysteria, neurosis, and psychotic delusions, but more recent studies have shown that religion can be used to cope with stress and mental health. Do you think that religion should be used as a resource in order to help cope with mental health issues? https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/talking-about-men/201712/religion-and-mental-health-what-is-the-link

    Every Religion has some misconceptions Islam, too, isn't an exception. Although I'm not very into Religions, but it really hurts to see Muslims being treated this way just because of misinterpretation of their beliefs. So, lets try bridging this gap as well. I'll list some of the very common misconceptions. Most people think that Muslim Women are not that educated . However, the recent study shows that Saudi and Iranian women are way ahead when it comes to STEM Education. Some people also claim that Islam teaches to be Close Minded and not raise questions. That too is contrary to Islamic Beliefs . Another major misconception is that Muslims are Terrorists . First and foremost, it isn't fair to call someone with that title. Whether it be a Muslim, a Hindu, a Christian, a White or a Black, everyone deserves respect. Secondly, ISIS (which is NOT Islam) is only 0.2 Million ( at Max) in Number whereas there are 1.8 Billion Muslims. Even if someone supposes that ISIS is Islam-based, we can't let 0.011% to represent the whole Muslim Body. Women are inferior to Men is another misconception about Islam. However, Muslim Beliefs are totally against that, and Islam doesn't hold Women inferior to Men . Islam doesn't permit the Over-Throwing of governments . Islam does not hold the Gaining of Political Power as a Muslim’s main Objective . Islam does not deny Religious Freedom to Others . These are some common misconceptions about Islam. Please share this with others as well. Your share can help make world a better place. :) If there is any such misconception about your religion, feel free to comment.

    Sorry but this one going to be a bitter pill for South Asians. So, take it with a grain of salt.Growing up in Pakistan, I have always felt irritated about the "so called grace rules developed in the whole of South Asia" If you're a man, you may find this read useless because these rules don't affect you. I don't need to say anything about these rules, just have a look and decide yourself : Women have no right to speak against Men. Husbands are always superior to Wives. Women have to feel sorry even if they don't a thing. If some sexual harassment/violence happens, it's because the women wants it. Women can't do jobs because they were made to stay in homes. Girls can't get education because they are responsible for homes. Being a women, you shouldn't ask for divorce. If I go on the list is long...... So, lets stop here and discuss the issue. A major part of this issue is the Religion . Most of the South Asian population have developed the thinking that God/Allah/Bhagwaan made Men superior. Firstly, there's no religion in this world who gives such a lame statement. Even if there is, it can never be a true religion. Now, I am going to state the exact verses from your holy books/religious teachings for you below. Teachings of Hinduism here . Muslims teachings here . Buddhism teachings here . If you agree with the RESPECT these religions give to women, please share the message with others to save our future generations from this curse ! I don't mean to be rude but we all need to remove all these misconceptions to make world a better place to live, a place where everyone is treated with respect, respect, and equal respect .
