Born as an Indian, turned into Bhartiya (If you know what it means.) Against Political correctness and Politics. I support Uniform Civil Code and Gender neutral laws. I don't understand the purpose of feminism and ultra-left ideology that is being pushed on everyone. Freedom of speech is a right and should be used in right way. My articles etc are "My" opinions.

“It’s important that you read this paragraph as it talks about how everything that is to follow is an experiment which may get the author to be banned from this platform however I will tell you that, all that is to follow, falls under my freedom of speech and if you are offended by the use of “unparliamentary language” you must leave now.”

“sounds pretty usual? Isn’t it, just keep scrolling things will get bit edgy”

My entire point of writing such an opening is to warm you up for a question that I have been pondering upon since the time चंद्रयान went up. I have been thinking about this a lot what if we are actually able to land on some planet and if it’s possible should we take religion with us?

I am not talking about any specific religion but all of them I’m saying would it possible to do something like this? As far as this amazing feat of human landing on some other planet is concerned it would be possible only with science, no amount of Pope’s blessings or prayers or wishful thinking but only through science. We have seen how cruel can religion get (crusades) and entire dark age in the west, and I don’t have to remind any of you what religious extremism has done to our land starting with Muhammad bin Qasim, no amount of ink can cover the entirety of the destruction it had caused and the ripple effect it sent out which is still reverberating throughout the history. I don’t believe that people completely understand the damage Islamic rule had on the history. We don’t have enough data available to understand how our civilization worked before Muhammad bin Qasim knocked every last shred of Dahirs kingdom into dust. (“Well…it’s just something”, but go on”)

Coming back to my original dilemma, should we take religion with us if we can go to Mars for example.

Please let me know about your thoughts because no body seems to have any answers (and yes I have asked all of my other personalities)

“Well…I did tell you things would get edgy…now it’s just something that author has been trying to make people interested in history, he starts with something else to get your attention and then throws in what he really wants to say” Cheers!!

Note : The above is an experiment to show that “we” understand the value of discussion. I mean if you think you have the answer please share.
