khizar lah

I can totally understand this... the whole concept of God is being treated as something which is not to be believed.. people want to believe in what they like rather than really understanding what is right for them.. So this is bound to happen...
Here we have religious scholars who have vested interests in what they do and in turn the whole institution of religion is deprived of its value...
@Vikram - you did a nice job to get these things on camera and i hope you will also bring forward the real value of religion too..
