Why is religion associated with politics in some Muslim countries? Is that the only way? Well, we must learn from the past, once again. Lets look to Europe’s past. The Holy Inquisition was responsible for the stalemate of knowledge, affecting the scientific development. Societies didn’t grow up with freedom in its base, citizens were forced to believe in God, because it was the only path. Catholic Church lost all of its religious fundamentals, because it was no longer a way for liberating. So, the history tells us that the promiscuity of religion and politics are wrong, very wrong. When this happens, religion is orientated towards goals associated to power. In my point of view, when this happens, religion turns into a tool of manipulation. Normally, fake interpretations occur. In some Muslims countries, the promiscuity of religion and politics are destroying freedom, institutions and civil societies. I’m talking about the radical wing, of course. The use of religion by terrorist groups is a tremendous sin. God should be a reason for peace, not war. I believe that the real interpretation of the holy sphere is a way to reach peace, not conflicts. Religion and Politics shall evolve in parallel paths, always.
