New Religion would forever be
Irrelevant in the Context of Our Relation and the Oneness.

Sikhism came into existence. For the reason, we, moderate Muslims
dislike Aurangzeb comparing to Akbar even today.
Whereas, I was stressing that the
Sikhism is equality based religion and the Godly gifted to entire
Similarly, Sikhs especially elderly
ones would always remember moderately in the manner ‘Ravidassia
Dharm’ as only a creation of a mistake of our a few boys who fired
and thereby, killing of Sant Ramananad in Vienna on May 24, 2009.
Though, the motive behind the
attack is still not known and Austrian police are still
investigating the case.
A move of creation of ‘Ravidassia
Dharm’ was more political than religious on the behest or at the
instance of some anti-Sikh forces.
The Ravidassias as enlightened

teachings of Guru Ravidass.
But, Budhism has
nothing to do with violence, whereas, in this case, Ambedkar Sena
activists seem to be only trouble creator, creating law and order
problem in order to and in favour to divide the society and the
religion on political lines and are out to spread hatred for the
political reasons in violation of the teachings of great Budha.
Isn’t so? Who is
behind these all happenings?
