Recently there are two case where religion is mixed with politics. First fresh controversy erupted over the seven-phase polls announced by the Election Commission Kolkata Mayor and TMC minister Firhad Hakim brought up the issue of the election schedule clashing with the Muslim holy month of Ramadan and alleged the Modi government “did not want minorities to vote” in large numbers. The seven Phase Election will be held in Uttarpradesh, Bihar and West Bengal.

MIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi on Monday said elections during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan would have no impact on the voter turnout and slammed the political parties for raking up a controversy over this. The Hyderabad MP hoped that the poll percentage will be higher during Ramadan as more Muslims will go out and vote due to the high degree of spirituality they experience during the fasting month.

Second is the issue of women entry in Sabrimala which is major poll bank for various political parties in Kerala. The EC has given a strict warning that temple name should not be used in the campaign. Day after the Election Commission announced the dates for the high-stakes general elections, Kerala Chief Election Commissioner Teeka Ram Meena on Monday said invoking Sabarimala during political campaigning would be considered a violation of the Model Code of Conduct. As per the model code of conduct inciting religious feeling, using any kind of Supreme Court judgement, invoking God, soliciting votes in the name of religion or by inciting religious feelings is a clear violation of model code of conduct.

Politics and religion can never go hand in hand. In the modern era, people belong to different religion live in a country. There is diversification in every country of the world. In this case involving religion in politics can only be beneficial for the group who belongs to the state religion. But, not the whole nation. Because the people who are in minority will face biases of the state. They will not ultimately get the equal chances in proving themselves. Therefore, the sacred religion should not be involved in politics.Politics and religion can never go hand in hand. In the modern era, people belong to different religion live in a country.

In an ideal world, politics should have nothing to do with a citizen’s choice of religion in his private life. Pursuit of religion is for personal transcendence and has nothing to do with the mundane world of politics. Mixing politics with religion is vote-bank politics; this could have dangerous repercussions. All religions that profess universal values, are equal and one is free to follow any faith, irrespective of the one you are born into. think including or even mixing religion with caste is a very cheap way of getting votes from a majority of people.

Since politicians look for their benefit rather than the benefit of the people, casteism and forming religion based party is a common way which may help them get votes and access power.Mixing religion and politics makes people of certain religion which exist as minority in the country, feel alienated and discriminated.Politics and religion can never go hand in hand.
