Khoji, a Sikh luminary, writes:

“Any religion, which preaches, propagates and encourages directly or indirectly : —
discord,
hatred,
division,
repulsion,
harm,
conflict,
confrontation,
bigotry,
violence,
crusades,
superiority complex,
exclusiveness,
partisanship, and
parochialism,
is not worth being called a ‘Religion’!”

He further writes,

“If religion does not transform our consciousness and make a better and nobler man of us, then the adoption and profession of religion becomes :–
hypocrisy,
superfluous,
showy,
meaningless,
farce,
self-deceiving,
bigotry,
egoistic, and
a mockery!”
