COMBATING COMMUNAL VIOLENCE: A SOLUTION DRAFTED
 Satyabrata Bhoi

A solution to the persisting problem of religious conflicts is drafted below for kind perusal and for a humanistic attention to the topic standing with apathy from ages. But before drafting this proposal, few lines are felt to be note worthy as below:
If grossly seen, there seems to be two absolute but ideal solutions to this problem, first one being, to have a world with no religion, or the second one as to have a world with only one religion i.e. a universal religion.
But, both of these solutions are not practically possible, because, the first one which is an atheist approach does not suit to the human frame of mind in common and the difficulty with the second one is that philosophers of every religion are trying to make their religion a universal one. Here one thing would be state worthy that, in an age of science it has been the high time to realize the futility of seeing the things with out any reasoning and to consider each and every occurring with a scientific approach. So to say, the fundamental of a universal religion lies with science. But until the scientists accept and declare that like electromagnetism, sound and light, “consciousness” is also a property of energy; a universal religion cannot be framed.
Till that date, an alternative and effective solution to this problem is highly needed and that is drafted below, which needs vigorous attention, analysis, discussion, modification and then a conclusive practical application.
The proposal – a raw sketch:
A body should be constituted comprising of representatives from every religion. Here in the body, a Marxist should also be there. In this proposal Marxists are also taken as an ethnic group as because an integral part of humanity cannot be excluded from such a proposal. The body will function in each level such as international body, national body, state body and district level body. While recruiting the members of this institution the moral back ground and integrity of the person concerned must be taken into consideration. They must be leading their respective religion to the right earnest and should have a command over the mass of their own group. No communal back ground should be there in the career of the person to be recruited. The recruitment process should include the provision of nomination by the highest rank of each group along with a bureaucratic, judiciary, and parliamentary approach. It is needless to mention that, the body should be approved and empowered with a constitutional provision.
The body will function as follows: It will always be vigilant with regard to the religious practices going on in the area and should ensure that no mishap is going to happen and an ever lasting harmony is prevailing every where. And if still any tension erupts, the body will address the issue directly at the spot. With out consulting the body statesmen should not take any decision with regard to the ethnic groups in the area. If some body is requiring a religious conversion then ,with out permission of this body he/she cannot be converted , otherwise person concerned will be debarred from his/her social status and conversion will be taken as illegal. The body will give permission for conversion only on purely spiritual ground and should be strict enough to ensure that on socio- economic or political pressure no body is getting converted. It may also function as a spiritual and cultural guide for the citizens in the area. More over the body will judge every thing and take every action with a rational and humanistic approach.
 
Proposal submitted before the whole humanity for kind perusal and a sympathetic justification to the establishment of peace.
 
Last but not least, the present lies in the hand of religious leaders with a scientific temperament and future in the hand of religious scientists.
