Service to mankind is the only religion: Mamata Banerjee

Service to mankind is the only religion: Mamata Banerjee

Bangla Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee today attended a function organised by the Akhil Bharat Jayguru Sampraday at Mahamilan Math in Dakshineshwar.

In her speech, she strongly advocated in favour of communal harmony and peace and spoke about the equality of all religions.

Highlights of her speech:

This institution (Mahamilan Math in Dakshineswar) has served lots of people

All religions are interdependent and have elements of cooperation

Religion is not a small thing; there are several religions followed by different people

The need to go hand in hand despite the huge diversities that civilisation is in was stressed, using religious analogies and mantras

But there are people who foment trouble in the name of religion; they are hijacking religion, for there is no faith that encourages fighting on the path of salvation

Why do we still have to identify ourselves on the basis of religion; why not as human beings?

Religion means humanitarian work, working for mankind – this is the only truth

Whenever you need me, I will respond; not to fill any post but to help you in your service to mankind.
