Overview: Does He Know a Mother's Hear: How Suffering Refutes Religion

The book, "Does He Know A Mother's Heart: How Suffering Refutes Religion" is a writen by author Arun Shourie. The book deals with the author's son Adit who is suffering from cerebral palsy and his wife Anita who is suffering from Parkinson's disease. In the book, the author talks about how suffering is away from any sort of religious beliefs. He does not disprove the concept of God but his point, as he goes through many religious texts is that why should innocent children be the victims of suffering. The book also tells us as to why the author has drifted towards the teachings of Buddha.

The author discusses the concepts of suffering, crime and punishment in the Old Testament and the Quran. He says that the Christians have a perception that the parents' of the suffering child are chosen but what about the child? Why should he suffer for no fault of his own? Thus with many more beliefs and narrations in the book from real life events, the author connotes that children and people too suffer and seek refuge in religious beliefs.

  1.  How suffering refutes religion- all the answers to this question 24 June, 2013 On Junglee.com
    IF you have been a care giver to anyone who is suffering from extreme illness, you must read this book. The title of the book quotes "How suffering refutes religion" , and rightfully the book is detailed to answer this question, not only by quoting Arun's personal experiences but substantiating it with the religious texts of various sects .

    The books begins with Arun's own role as a caregiver to his son and later to his wife as well. Then he takes us along a journey of quoting texts from Islam/Christianity/Hinduism and then explaining how they don't really makes sense. Extreme suffering can never be justified-Bad karma , act of god, lack of faith are all but mere tags to help people to get over the suffering .. but anyone who has witnessed a cancer patient/spastic child and similar sufferings would agree that suffering does indeed refute eligion. This book substantiates this emotion with facts , with oxymoron's in our religion ...

    The last part of the book is how he looks at the suffering and what would help anyone who is in similar shoes to get over the tragedy and live a peaceful life while playing the role of a care giver.

    A must read for those who stick to religion and suggest bad karma/lack of faith as the reasons for suffering and also for those who look for logic behind everything and are not blinded by faith ..
