Founders of faiths never exhibited religiosity: Ansari

AMN/ Chandigarh

Former Vice-President M Hamid Ansari has said that it was not the founders of religious faith who propounded religiosity, but it were their followers who diluted or corrupted their teachings.

“Similarly, nationalism today has come to identity itself over and above individual moral judgment. It has increasingly been confused with patriotism, and if done so with impunity, it might lead to unstable and explosive conditions,” Ansari said while inaugurating a two-day conference — ‘Guru Nanak’s philosophy to spread peace, harmony and human happiness’ — to mark the 550th Parkash Purb here recently.

Former Vice-President said that the history shows that the founders of faiths never exhibited religiosity nor did they place any right or duty above the moral precepts.

He said humanity could only be saved if both these pandemics were replaced by human behaviour in light of collective experience and moral guidance.

In his keynote address, former Union Minister of Human Resource Development Murli Manohar Joshi said mind-boggling consumption had created a mindset which believes more was needed.

He said the cut-throat competition, violence, aggression and religious bigotry were all assuming dangerous proportions and degrading natural and social environment. It could only be curbed by powerful Cultural Revolution. The Sikh way of life has all potentialities of creating a new world order. The Sikhism directs human beings to always try to be at peace with their creator by constantly trying to reach him.
