24. Bible Preaches 'Racism', Vedas Preach 'Equal Rights'
BIBLE PREACHES ‘RACISM’, VEDAS PREACH ‘EQUAL RIGHTS’
1. BIBLE PREACHES ‘RACISM’
The Holy Bible preaches and propagates ‘racism’. ‘Racism’ is the belief in the inherent superiority of a particular race or races over others, usually with the implication of a right to dominate over others. The following passage of Holy Bible indicates that its followers are ‘holy people’, ‘special people’, ‘chosen people’ and ‘superior race’ in the court of God :
229. ‘6. For thou art an holy people unto the Lord thy God: the Lord thy God bath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth.’
- Deuteronomy, 7/6
The afore-mentioned Biblical passage incited the British rulers to accord discriminatory treatment to the people of Bharat. Let Christian missionaries answer to the question: ‘Does Bible believe in equality of all men of the universe ?’
2. VEDAS PREACH ‘EQUAL RIGHTS’
Vedic religion does not approve of superiority of a particular race or races over others. None is superior or inferior. All are equal children of one Father.

All men are sweet sons of Supreme Being
Holy Vedas preach equality of all men of the earth and equal rights of all irrespective of caste, colour, creed and country.

- Rig Veda 2/13/2
‘Without dynamic conquering spirit, even devotion to a divine cause will be of little avail. In this hard world which is an arena for trial of strength with brute forces, mere goodness or noble virtues will not hold the field even for a single moment. That is why we find that in spite of all the piety, goodness and devotion to God all through the past thousand years, we were trampled under the feet by foreign aggressors who, though total strangers to goodness and virtue, had a passion for heroic action and organised effort.’
- Guruji M.S. Golwalkar
