The enormity of the issues was such great and the coverage in media was so exhaustive that not much is left for me to add. In addition to reporting the developments in the cases, there have also been thorough analyses and commentaries on various aspects of the issue.

  1. Parallel religions are seen in existence because parallel communities were evolved in ancient civilization. It grows and manifests valued faith even in the modern age of science and technology. Thank you for sharing and good writing.

    1. Your comments as a rule bring a new perspective to every subject. In this article I used the term ‘parallel religion’ for the twisting of traditional thought/philosophy/religion to suit one’s narrow aim. It didn’t occur to me that the term could denote alternative philosophy. Thanks for pointing out.
