[ALOCHONA] A looming crisis

In this age of enlightenment proliferation of ignorance is a significant problem. Millions of people who still find peace and solace with their religious beliefs this issue of ignorance are related to them. An immovable contradiction between reason and religion is playing havoc with our cherished desire to have a world based on logic and realism. Historically the provision of traditional religion is reserved for a fearful mind who will always keep the thoughts of reason at bay. This phenomenon is based on a prehistoric layer of fear which is very difficult to overcome. A staggering number of people still feels helpless to ignore this attraction to fear and this fear led some people to revolt against any attempt to minimize the influence of faith to help usher reasonable enlightenment. The scourge Islamic extremism which is challenging democracy to create a tolerant society based on equal justice is a matter of great concern for any sensible person. In the history of mankind ignorance never had a chance to reassert itself in such a profound way when humans have so much to get rid of it. In the realm of knowledge there is always a place of polemics but the reason is not to create a war but to find out the synthesis. At this juncture of time the blame goes to our failures to build a rational bridge to fill the gap in the differences of various concepts. We came up with bright ideas without a proper mechanism to implement it. The spread of Taliban type of religious extremism is raging forward not because that it can offer any better alternatives but only to deepen the crisis of understanding which can only bring a catastrophe.
