Religion An Obstacle to Human Progress by Dr Chandra Sekhar Tiwary

Religion is one to the common elements that virtually all civilizations share. Human civilizations have made relentless progress in the sciences- heliocentrism, relativity, quantum physics, nuclear science, computer technology, genetic engineering but our socio-political ideas and our religious ideas have changed very little.
Religions become a force for peacemaking in the world and the use religion has become a tool to justify violence and no longer be justified in the name of conversion, reform, purification, secularization, property rights, missionary activity, redress of historic grievances, or extirpation of error and because of violence religion is seen by many people as a source of societal discord and injustice that must be place under state control.
