Often times we live in isolation with other communities and over a period of time, based on propaganda or news about very small group or people, we make a negative image in our mind about whole community. We became typical stereotype. In most of the cases we are wrong about our opinion. When we start meeting more and more peoples of any community we realise that they are more like us or infect, in some cases, better than us. Talk to peoples having different opinions. Debate with them using soft word and hard arguments. Then only you will learn whether your opinions were true or false. Do not hide behind your private wall and believe you are right. keep your mind open for new ideas.
World does not exist in black and white. World is colourful. Go around; meet different people in public places. Do not hate the whole community just because you heard negative news about few peoples of that community. Not all peoples are good or bad, there are some good peoples and few bad peoples in every community. Do not hold prejudices about anyone without meeting and knowing about them.
Hate is not the solution; it can only make things worse. No one born good or bad, our situation makes us and shapes us as good or evil. In my school, there was a quote written on the wall from Bhagwat Gita “Hate the sin not the sinner”. It contains profound wisdom. Suppose there is a person who was involved in substance abuse. Later he come out of that dirty world and wants to start new normal life. As he left his bad habit, he is no more a bad person. Unfortunately, there will be people around him in society, who will not treat him nicely. They will not meet him nor let anyone to be friend with him. When a person left bad habit, he is no longer a bad person. We must treat him nicely and give him due respect as we give to other.
Love and kindness have great power. It can melt the heart and change the mind. Spread love and kindness. We all are human. Our misunderstanding make us different, otherwise we all are same. Love is a profitable business, whereas hate only has losses. Love everyone. Treat them as human being like you. Your love, care, support and empathy has power to change people mind and heart.
Look at the world and its beauty; feel it and live it. Do not submit all your faculties to blind faith, and do not live a lame life. The world will be a much better place without prejudices and stereotype. Learn, educate, and search for the evidence before believing anything. It happens all the time that we believe something, but then, later on, we come to realise it is incorrect. “Oh! This is not the truth!” we may then say. So the right way is to be sceptical: value others’ views, and don’t just stick with your opinion, especially when all evidence and hard facts goes against it.
