50 buses in Toronto, Canada now display the message of Hussain ibn Ali (A). I happened to pass by a telephone booth with a similar message near Penn Station in New York City last week. I get such a great feeling within me when I see this.
When you look into the eyes of Buddha can you say, ‘Buddha understands my pain?’ I believe not because Buddha ran away from pain to sit on a hilltop with one desire, to desire nothing.
When you look into the eyes of Mohammed can you say 'Mohammed understands my plight?’ I believe not for he was a cruel conqueror full of blood lust who oppressed many nations born out by the fact that many nations today are oppressed by the words of his command.
When you look into the eyes of the Atheist can you say, 'the Atheist understands my being?’ I believe not for they cannot answer the deep, meaningful questions of life because for them in an amoral universe nothing brought you into existence and when one hits the grave nothing ensues.
When you look into the eyes of Jesus can you say, 'Jesus understands my life?’ I believe so because He did not run from pain but willingly endured 'ex cruciatus’; He did not conquer militarily yet He did set the captives free; He is the only religious leader who truthfully explains the why’s of life.
When people look into the eyes of Jesus they see themselves and they do not like what they see so they run to the hills, viciously oppress others and deem their lives meaningless!
