It is essential to understand more about the system of exploitation and human abuse. It is only achieved through Organized Religion. In fact no human exploitation is possible without this. Organized Religion is the keystone upon which rests the whole infrastructure of any system of human exploitation. Laws aimed at exploiting the poor are always framed in the name of God and thus sanctified forever. Who can dare challenge them? The poor on the other hand engage themselves in rituals in the hope of finding a solace for their miseries. ‘Happiness and pursuits of joy’ are forbidden through sermons creating fears of hell or of ill omens. “Those that seek joy shall soon find themselves in hell”. This is sermonized from the pulpits. “The miserable and the poor shall be the Kings in Heaven”, a promissory note, that keeps abuse and exploitation going. The religious leaders engage the poor in believing stories about ‘the glorious past when people truly believed and all was so good’; or about a promise, of life in the hereafter ‘when everything will be so good’. A state of denial of the present pain and suffering is nicely achieved. The Quran calls this the life of Hell.
Mohammed defied the institution of religion with main and might. He challenged its very roots: its ridiculous rituals and beliefs. He declared religion a hoax, a farce organized by the rich upper classes. If a Nation wishes to rise, poverty and misery must be eradicated. The root of every evil is religion and it had to be attacked. It had to be eliminated before any mass movement of social reform could be effective. The greatest proponent of religion, during the times of Mohammed, was a revered religious scholar by the name Abu Al Hikm. The name means, “ The father of Wisdom”. He was an uncle of Mohammed, whom Mohammed derogated him fearlessly, declaring him Abu Jahal, or “The father of ignorance”. Such was the fearless approach of Mohammed. The several battles that Mohammed fought were all against the religious forces of his times. In defense the self-righteous religious people of Mecca denounced Mohammed and his followers, calling them apostates and heretics. “They have hijacked Faith,” Mohammed taught his followers.
The history of mankind is indeed a saga of war between those that believe in reason versus those that believe in miracles and holy saviors. Those who have faith in the scientific law of God and who commit themselves to establish a system of Peace based on equal distribution of food and wealth in accordance with the law of God, are referred to in the Quran as The Believers or The Momins. These are the heroes of the Quran, the warriors of Light. Momins are the executives of the Islamic State. The opponents of the Islamic State, or non-members, are referred to as The Disbelievers or The Kafirs. The Quran also condemns those, who say that they believe in God, but do nothing to establish The Islamic State. Those individuals or nations, who profess about God and their belief in God, but do nothing to establish the law of God, are referred to in the Quran as, The Hypocrites or The Munafiqs. The Quran teaches that that such nations will end up in poverty and misery. Nations that live in poverty and misery develop hopelessness and a tendency to believe in magical happenings. Such nations engage in senseless rituals or live in their fanciful delusions. ‘They engage in rituals that produce no result, in the wishful belief that a change will happen magically”, says the Quran. They are referred to in the Quran The Disbelievers or The Kafirs.
Religious Fundamentalists may be defined as “a group of individuals who are dysfunctional and angry, live in state of intellectual arrest, with concrete views and opinions about life that are fixed, share common delusions with one another to reinforce their false beliefs, and counter their hopelessness and helplessness through superstitious rituals, chants and magical beliefs.” An understanding of the healthy development of the human personality is essential to understanding this pathology.
