I would say it is the secular world and its materialistic approach to life that creates drones that do not think deeply about anything in case it leads them to accepting GOD.
If one truly accepts GOD and follows his commands, then the desire for the worldly things will diminish, the powers to be cannot allow that to happen as it would impact the markets and their money. So it is in everyones GREEDY self interests that result in chaos in the world we see.
Anything that moves people into becoming better humans, cannot be tolerated and has to be demonised just like Islam and to be honest most religions are being side lined.
I know the response to my comment will be - "well religion and religious people have caused so many wars in the world and hatred between peoples that it cannot be a good thing" My answer to that is -
If 1 person commits a crime you cannot blame the entire human race for that, and no 1 will. In a similar manor if a person professing to a religion commits a crime, you cannot and should not blame the religion for that crime. As humans we are all prone to error. No religion calls people to violence or any act against the betterment of society and humanity. It is our distorted perception or bias toward a certain reality that manifests itself into branding or criticsing others or religions.
