New Delhi, September 9, 2017 : According to a report published by The Daily Telegraph in August, it was revealed that almost 30 per cent of the students in Australia are now associating themselves with ‘no religion’. Over 230,000 students in a survey conducted by the New South Wales Department of Education chose to associate themselves with ‘no religion’ thus, constituting 30 per cent of the entire student population of the country. Similar trends can be be observed globally. In such a scenario, we came across a page on Facebook named End Religion Bring Peace, which is operated by Sanjeev Sabhlok.

A former IAS, Sabhlok has also worked as a Professor at Lal Bahadur National Academy of Administration and as the Commissioner and Secretary to the Government in the State Government of Meghalaya. Presently, he is a senior leader of the Swarna Bharat Party

With an active presence on the social media platform, the page, which is increasingly gaining followers, propagates the absence of any religion in order to establish global peace.

But what does one mean by ‘absence of religion’?

Irreligion can mean the absence, rejection, indifference or hostility towards religion.

While it may include some forms of theism depending upon the context it is being defined in, irreligion largely takes basis in the concept of deism, which is a philosophical position that holds that a God does not bear any direct interference with the world.

According to a global research conducted by Pew Research Centre in 2012 that included 230 countries and territories, about 16% of the world’s population was not affiliated with any religion. That number is sure to have grown, however, a new study is yet to be carried out.

There are now over 1,000 members of the page ‘End Religion Bring Peace’. And the most interesting fact is that MOST of these members are Muslims!

Sanjeev Sabhlok observes that Islam is undergoing a revolution internally. He writes, “People are abandoning the faith even as they may appear devout on the surface”. According to him, this can be attributed to the increasing risk of being attacked or killed upon open renunciation of the religion by religious fanatics.

Sabhlok believes that “the day man rejects religion, a semblance of peace may finally come down to earth.”

Swarna Bharat Party (SBP) wants Modi Government to bring reform in Labour Laws

New Delhi, September 3, 2017: Mr Sanjeev Sabhlok, a professional economist and Overseas Coordinator for Swarna Bharat Party, called upon the Modi government to abolish most labour laws, including minimum wage laws, laws restricting hiring and firing of labour and laws that set employment conditions, such as the Maternity Benefit (Amendment) Act, 2017.
 
Mr Modi lied to Indians when he spoke about “minimum government, maximum governance”. Immediately upon coming to power, he has dramatically expanded the remit of government in every field. 
 
The expansion of maternity leave to 26 weeks (for the first two children) for women who work in any establishment with more than ten employees has been a particularly damaging intervention. In a country with chronically high unemployment, this Tughlaquesque provision is going to put many young women out of jobs, depriving them of the opportunity to gain valuable work experience.
 
Mr Sabhlok emphasised that Swarna Bharat Party is not against longer maternity leave. But this is a matter purely between employers and employees. Indeed, across the world, many companies voluntarily choose to implement strong maternity leave policies in order to attract and retain top female talent. 
 
On the other hand, most jobs only require low-level skills. For such jobs, no employer can afford to pay half a year’s wages without any work. They will necessarily reject young women and hire male labour, instead. Or they will pay all women employees less. Moreover, we know that government inspectors’ bribe demands will increase.
 
The government must get out of the way and leave the people of India free to agree to their own wage bargains and other labour conditions as grown up adults. The only function a government has in relation to private employment contracts is to ensure strong enforcement of these contracts through the judiciary. A government has no business to set the terms of these contracts. 
 
Mr Sabhlok said that the Modi government’s focus should be only on one thing: on the urgently needed governance reforms to provide basic rule of law, security and justice – as detailed in Swarna Bharat Party manifesto. He regretted that Mr Modi is even more wedded than his predecessors to the failed ideology of socialism and big government.
