RELIGION AND COMMUNALISM ARE DIFFERENT
Aligarh: Dr Ramesh Rawat, a professor of Hindi at Aligarh Muslim University has said that religion and communalism are commonly understood to be the same which is wrong. The danger looming large to the national unity and integrity is from communalism and not religion, he said. Dr Rawaf was speaking on religion and Marxism on the occasion of birth anniversary celebrations of Karl Marx.
In a pluralistic society, religion has no separate role to play, Dr Rawat said. The anti-fascism role of Bhakti Movement in Medieval Times and its anti-imperialistic role during National Movement are the proofs, he said. It is because of this that the anti-communal groups have the sympathy of the followers of true religions, he said. The event was organised by Indian Association of Lawyers.
