Savitri Era religion is the most sensible alternative

Mysore, Apr. 10 (BRS)- Transform religion into a spiritual force, notwith-standing the difficulty of achieving the task, for the society to progress, opined Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam. He was delivering the inaugural address at the national seminar on "Religion, Spirituality and Education in the challenging globalised world" held on Sunday at St. Philomena's College here to mark the diamond jubilee celebrations of the college.

One can understand the dilemma of Dr. Kalam, the President of a secular country. Citizens have the right to adhere to their respective religions and any attempt to wean them away from their paths is against the democratic ethos. Interestingly, Leftists in our country are supportive of a fundamentalist stance like this. Thus, the two views clash. Savitri Era religion, therefore, is the most sensible alternative. [TNM]
