Mr Edward de Bono, you are absurdly wrong! By Chandra

This is with reference to The Indian Express interview of Walk the Talk with Dr Edward de Bono on Published on 21 April, 2008.

In this interview, Dr Edward de Bono said that “You know something interesting about Islam? The Prophet Muhammad had more to say about thinking than any other religious leader”.

This statement is totally wrong and also misleads the Indian society and the world on the subject of religion.

It seems that Dr Edward is absurdly ignorant of what Swami Vivekananda said more than hundred years ago was “If you read the Koran, you find the most wonderful truths mixed with superstitions how will you explain it? That man was inspired, no doubt, but that inspiration was, as it were, stumbled upon. He was not a trained Yogi, and did not know the reason of what he was doing. Think of the good Mohammed did to the world, and think of the great evil that has been done through his fanaticism! Think of the millions massacred through his teachings, mothers bereft of their children, children made orphans, whole countries destroyed millions upon millions of people killed (The Complete Works of Swami Vivekananda, Volume 1, page.184).

When we have, such a versatile man of the great philosopher of he world Religion How such misleading statement simply eating out of mouths in Indian as well as world society. One can say, one of the great philosopher, who explained deeply was Swami Vivekananda.
