In some parts of the world, indigenous people are under attack for following the Ancient Ways. In some parts of the world, Christians are under attack for practicing their religion, in other parts, Muslims. In some parts of the world, Buddhists are under attack, in others, Hindus, and it is the same for followers of other religions, or spiritual beliefs.
Almost exclusively, the attacks are not being perpetrated by “bad” people, but by “religious” people. That is a problem, but such is the state on the earth today. The Holy Texts held most dear to the various religious are consistent in saying to be kind to one another, and one is either a follower or not.
Here is a verse from the Veda to think about.
To be powerful giving with selfless power is glorious for driving away wickedness, and everyone has this righteous weapon to remove evil from the heart.
