The Central theme of this article is "Ram Ka Naam Badnaam Na Karo." The innocent people of India have been taken advantage of the political criminals; these men get the ordinary good Indians wired up with hate and kill fellow Indians in the name of Ram or Hanuman. That Criminal act of Advani, the Rath Yathra has turned India upside down, and it will take another generation to restore dharma, the righteousness. I hope the new generations will not fall into these traps and start respecting fellow humans, that will create peace and bring prosperity. To Modi, "Sab Ka Saath, Sab Ka Vikaas " is merely an election slogan, but it should mean we have to build an India where we all get along for common good.
We need influential, but good pluralistic religious leaders who can make Ram, Muhammad, Buddha, Jesus, Mahavir, Krishna, Guru Nanak and others look for what they were; Peacemakers, individuals dedicated to building cohesive societies where no human has to live in fear of the other.
I hope to write a piece on "Ram Ka Naam Badnam Na Karo" and "Muhammad Ko Mercy for Mankind Hi Rahne Do." Let no one commit bad acts in the name of Ram or Hanuman, and Let Muhammad remain mercy to humanity.
Center for Pluralism.

Elections have to be fought on real issues, not on hollow but mesmerizing oratory or through ready-to-use riots.
