And you pick up any image of Scripture, I am a student of compiled religion. I read the Ramayana and Mahabharata Bibles, Old Testament, New Testament Scriptures, Jain scriptures, I read it.

00:00:14 --> 00:00:18

And you find that in certain occasion are there the almost all the scriptures,

00:00:20 --> 00:00:25

some way or the other, they have mentioned fighting, they have mentioned killing, I can give quotation,

00:00:27 --> 00:00:27

if you read the Bible,

00:00:30 --> 00:00:35

in the book of Exodus of the Old Testament, chapter number 22, was the major 25th kill.

00:00:36 --> 00:00:38

Exodus chapter two says kill.

00:00:40 --> 00:00:57

Numbers, says kill New Testament. If you read Luke, in the Gospel of Luke, it says kill and if you remember the story of Jesus Christ, peace be upon him, when he goes to the garden of gets the money, he tends to one of the apostles to take a sword and stand there and that apostle use the software.

00:00:58 --> 00:01:05

So, you find that fighting has been prescribed in almost all the Scripture, you read the scriptures, Mahabharata is a scripture,

00:01:06 --> 00:01:15

but what chapter number two, and you know, that when urgent when he feels sad, that when he has to fight his relatives,

00:01:16 --> 00:01:35

Arjun says, How can I kill my relative the 1000s of people I had in front of me, how can I kill them? So Lord Arjun, Arjun, he is given guidance by Lord Krishna. And Lord Krishna tells him that as far as for the truth, when you're the truth, you don't have to see who's in front of you whether the relatives Oh, it is.

00:01:37 --> 00:01:56

And that is correct. Truth prevails much more higher than the calculations. Same thing the Quran says in Surah Nisa, chapter number four was the 135. Yeah, you will live in harmony, or you believe, stand out firmly for justice, as truth to Almighty God, even if it be against yourself, against your parents,

00:01:57 --> 00:02:19

against the rich against the poor, Allah protects all. So if you study all the Scripture, all the scriptures somewhere the other, some time or the other, they have mentioned about fighting. That doesn't mean you pick up their voice of existence. You pick up that verse of Bhagavad Gita and say that, you know, Bhagavad Gita says that or to kill your relative is out of context.

00:02:21 --> 00:02:28

So you have to analyze that to get a communal harmony, the best thing we have to do is we have to go back to our scriptures.

00:02:29 --> 00:02:36

If you go back to our scriptures, you will come to know what is mentioned the scripture which is the authentic source of a religion.

00:02:38 --> 00:02:39

And we find

00:02:40 --> 00:03:17

that the Quran says insert reminder. Chart number five was the matrix says that if anyone kills any human being, whether it be Muslim or non Muslim, unless it be for murder, or for creating mischief in the land, it is as though yes kill the whole of humanity. The Quran says if any human being whether Muslim or non Muslim kills any other human being, whether Muslim or non Muslim, unless it be for murder, or for creating mischief in the land, it is as though yes kill the whole of humanity and there was continuous and if anyone, save then human being, it is as though Yes, save the whole nation.
