    Is it right to criticise another religion without or before researching from authentic information?

    The Religion forum is well known for people criticising other religions  than their own. Is that what Allah/God told us humans to do?

    Is there another solution? Why don't people research the religion they want to criticise with facts rather than media opinion and hype?

    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.

    People don't want to think for themselves.
    Everyone feels that what they believe is right.
    Many people are narrow minded and judgmental.
    People criticize and fear what they do not understand.

    Criticizing others for what they believe is a sign of ignorance and it's also disrespectful. Belief is a choice and what works for one may not work well for the other. When it comes to religion it's best to communicate with like minded people and if you come across someone who doesn't believe what you believe then change the subject. In the end, it's usually not worth the headache.

    It's not right to criticise anything or anyone from ignorance.  Knowledge need not be perfect, but there is little excuse to criticise without checking facts first--particularly today, when knowledge is so easy to come by for many of us.

    None has the right to criticize any religion. If they are doing so, it is because of their ignorance. All religions teach Love, brotherhood, faith, tolerance and non-violence. There are varieties of eatables in the world. But in each region, people are accustomed to the food available in those regions. It may differ from our food habits. For that reason, it is not correct to criticize them. Food is meant to satiate hunger. How it is done differ from region to region. The aim is only satiation of hunger. Likewise all religions aim at  living in peace and amity. The goal is important than the ways how it is realized. All roads, however circuitous lead to the summit. Hence various religions are like the different roads which invariably take one to the summit. Hence "Let each religion flourish and let us follow our own religion without hating or criticizing other's religious beliefs.
