In history, we remember and respect only those who have the courage to stand
apart from the crowd and speak the "truth". Like Buddha, who despite being
born into a Hindu family defied Hindu traditions, its hypocrisies and established
Buddhism. Likewise, even Jesus, born into a Jewish family, revolted against
Jewish traditions and lost his life, or "Krishna" who not only opposed every
prevalent tradition, but even broke them all his life. Do you still wish to continue
being a Hindu, Muslim or Christian?
