While Islam and Christianity make the great claims of their growth and influence, the New Generation of the Youth and Women in Islam and Christianity are on the verge of a series of Revolts against Fundamentalism, a phenomena unforeseen by the Christian and Islamic Fundamentalists. While they talk much about life after death, they don't have much solutions to the problems of life after birth, especially of the Youth and the New Generation of Women. The Arab Spring is a great blow not only to Islam but Christianity also for it questioned the all embracing power and supremacy of Islam and Christianity in all aspects of life for it unmasks their weakness and mistakes in dealing with the basic human issues of Hunger, Ignorance and Oppression.
Just by quoting the Bible or Koran a thousand times, nobody can solve the basic problems of the Humanity- Food, Dignity and Knowledge. That is the story of the last 2000 years or the last 1400 years of the Humanity. In the long history of Humanity for more than 60,000 years, 2000 years of Christianity and 1400 years of Islam are quite insignificant.Unless Islam and Christianity make people to taste the joys of Paradise at least one day before death, or ensure Food, Dignity and Knowledge for All, they have no right to say the life after death for the Youth and Women, life after birth is as important or more important than life after death. If they cannot ensure justice in the world, how can they guarantee Happiness in Paradise.This is the basic challenge of Islam and Christianity.
