AWAKE, AWAKE, OTHERWISE....
- Jainism is the world's oldest living religion. It is the one and only one
scientific and logical religion. It is the only religion
respects not only human being but also all types of living beings. That is
why many people in western countries are studying this unique religion and
joining as followers.
But what is happening in India? Why we are just 4 millions in the
population of 100 crores?
We were 15 crores at a time, then declined to 4 crores and now we are just 4
millions. Within few decades, we will not exist at all.
We speak about Jainism as a world religion but why our religion has become
property of few people?
The Digambars and Shwetambars are fighting for temples and teerths with each
others. They should know that hundreds of old teerths and temples are
converted into Hindu temples and teerths. Can Digambers and Shwetambars come
together and fight for regaining such temples & teerths?
The organizations like Anup Mandal beat Jain monks, distruct Jain idols and
temples and we do not react. Are we impotent?
Constitution of India has given us some special rights as we are a minority
community. According to a right we can have 50% reservations for Jain
students in our educational institutions. We can appoint 100% staff from
our community. We could not use this right to create jobs for Jains and
making thousand of doctors, engineers and professors from our community. Now
the Central Government of India is saying no to this facility.
Jains will not be counted as a separate religion in the census of 2001. It
is happening in the year of Bhagwan Mahavir's 2600th Jayanti.
But we have nothing to do with such things. We have to fight with one
another.(Because we can not dare to fight with others.) We have to build new
temples. (Where the number of Jain idols have already more than total Jain
population) We have to work for protection of animals, birds and insects.
(We have nothing to do with human being)
It will go on untill we wake up. It will go on untill we do not know the
importence of unity
We do not know who are our friends and who are foes. We must know it
otherwise we will be no more.
