"You are creating confusion by mixing your associations." Am I?
Associations are confusing because they involve working of human mind and human mind in turn is shaped by myriads of factors. Do you think either animals or humans differentiate between a white Siberian tiger and a yellow Royal Bengal in a moral sense like white one is better than the yellow one? But we did for us humans on skin colors (white epitomizing everything good and sublime and black is evil) in that sense even after the scientific reasons of such differences are known to us. I mentioned this in the context of religions and political systems because these are similar human constructs. To say all these are shaped by human thinking, which is hardly free from errors, will neither be lack of awareness or information.
Whatever we are discussing here about religion and things intrinsically good in one and bad in other veers around religious scriptures. We know for fact that these books were written or compiled by human beings of a certain time and there is nothing surprising that these books, teachings, verses and 'slokas' cannot but reflect anything other than the moral, social and political (if any existing at that time) knowledge and experience of that time. To assess these upon the validation of modern day morality is a fool's exercise (but we fall for it, sure).
I am very unsure about what is 'mainstream' Hinduism. Is it the belief system of majority people of modern day India, or the belief system of minority people of ancient India? I have not noticed in many indigenous beliefs in India any salvation through Sarin. Since chemical poisoning is comparatively recent brutality, I am pretty sure no religious book will be found to refer it either.
"All countries in the world have laws against blasphemy, libel, hate-speech and you can see this article here:
And not all these countries are predominantly of people belonging to Islamic faith."
That is a typical argument to try and justify the Islamic Blasphemy laws.
That article on Blasphemy says in western countries Blasphemy laws exist but have never been used for decades or centuries. Where they have been used (on occasions you can count on the fingers of one hand) they have not resulted in any conviction.
Islamic Blasphemy laws (not Bangladesh but Islamic in many Islamic countries) carry the DEATH sentence. So an attempt to equate them and thus justify Islamic Blasphemy laws is appalling.
