Direction (Q. 1 - 5) : Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below it Certain words are given in bold to help you locate them while answering some of the questions.
Communal violence is not a strange phenomenon for this country. However, it is high time that we, as civilised human beings, sat down to rid ourselves of the fallacies that institutionalised religions have spread: like no religion teaches violence; all religions are the same; and that religion is a path that leads to God.
Essentially, religion is a code of conduct for people of different communities — geographical or cultural — to follow. Religion is a dead document. It's an imposed human burden on man after his birth. Besides, every religion generates hatred in a bid to gather more people in its flock, leading to bloodshed.
Whenever and wherever religion grows, it spreads intolerance amongst people of different religious denominations. Religion actually removes God from the purview of man, assuring him of heaven by his own good works. Thus God is made superfluous. What a falsehood! Perhaps it is this unconscious lack of fear of a living God that results in every evil. It's time for all of us to realise that what men need today is a God, and not religion. From the time of his birth, man's conscience is coded with the knowledge of God, the fact that there is only one God who has eyes to behold, ears to hear and a heart to love and to save.
The God is indeed invincible and cannot be defeated by any power, including death itself.
At this hour when we must unite to combat pain and suffering, I request you to turn to this God of love, forgiveness and justice. He is your need and not religion. Over the ages millions, irrespective of caste, creed, colour and religion, have cried out to God and have been saved. May the Lord grant all humanity the humility to do so, for sooner or later every one has to meet his or her maker.
