Religion and Postmodernism

Although I am not a postmodernist, but I do strongly feel that postmodernism has created a space for the return of religion. Anyone can wonder where religion was gone all the time till postmodernism came on the scene? I believe that it was not gone anywhere but it was simply marginalised or rather wiped away from the public sphere by the onslaught of modernism. If it existed at all during that period, it existed in forms imposed on it by modernism. Now when modernity's robes have become rags, cloaks thrown by it on other things are also in shards. So, after a long period of domestication, religion today seems to be in a rebellious mood. I understand it as an epochal event. If religion manages to free itself from the clutches of modernist discourse in the coming days, then it is definite that the future of humanity is going to change decisively. Because this issue has vast significance, we must explore its vicissitudes with care and commitment.

Prabhsharanbir Singh..... cannot be described in words.His views, his vision(if adopted, in my opinion), might just save sikhism and other world religions from degenerating.His is a voice I have not heard in The Punjab or anywhere else,for more than a decade.Do visit his blog, for further insight into the man, and his mind. Navigate to the right for his link.
