REGIONAL SEMINAR

REGIONAL SEMINAR

ON                

“RELIGIOUS HARMONY – ITS RELEVANCE IN OUR TIMES”

(6-7 December, 2010)

DEPARTMENT OF PHILOSOPHY

KURUKSHETRA UNIVERSITY KURUKSHETRA

 

THEMATIC-NOTE

            Today there is chaos in the whole world. Everybody is in the grip of fear and distrust. The world is being divided on the basis of caste, colour, creed and more particularly religion. On the one hand we talk of globalization, while on the other hand the divide between Muslim and non-Muslim countries/east and west is widening. Religion has become an important factor leading to this disharmony. With the growth of science and technology, it was felt that religion will be relegated to a corner or at least the hold of religion will be lessened. But this has not happened. Incidents of religious riots and terrorism are growing by the day and it appears that it is difficult to maintain peace unless we get to the root of the problem.

            We generally say that terrorism has no religion but the reality is that terrorists do get some kind of help from religious fundamentalism. Religion becomes a dogma when its beliefs are not questioned and are accepted uncritically. These unquestioned beliefs lead to intolerance on the part of the believer.

            In this context religious harmony becomes an imperative. Inter-religious dialogue can help us in building the much needed understanding and tolerance among the followers of different religions and can help in making the world a happy place to live in.

            Religion is a pious sentiment, a kind of immediate sympathy for people. Religions have evolved and not given to us apriori. They serve the need for the transcendental. Religious leaders of all shades helped mankind to love and have fellow-feeling because whether high or low, we have descended from the same spiritual force. This has sustained mankind for long. Thus religion was never a dogma in its initial stages, may it be pantheism or monotheism, but eventually all religions were made to lose their impulse to love and degenerated in dogmas. This is what ails us today in the form of terrorism. Such religions think that they are inviolable, unquestionable and therefore brook no dialogue. All religions have become closed world.

The seminar on “Religious Harmony – Its Relevance in Our Times” is an attempt to open them by way of a dialogue and to find some common ground, so that peace and harmony can prevail in hatred & terror-ridden world. The papers are invited on any of the topics:

  • Problem of Terrorism and the Role of Religion.
  • Inter-Religious Dialogue and Possibility of Universal Religion.
  • Importance of Religious Tolerance.
  • Humanism and Religion.
  • Religion and Society.
  • Religion and Spirituality.
  • Religion and Secularism.
  • Role of Religion in Curbing Religious Riots.
  • Secularism and Religious Harmony.
  • Need of Religious Harmony in Contemporary era.

 

Abstract of the paper by Nov. 10, 2010.
