What is homicide? This death of a young EMU student should make us to reflect about a crime called 'homicide' which is the act of killing one human being by another human being. This act of violence happens only when man is estranged from his own true or real nature. If such acts of crime have to be prevented, we may have to educate all people about the true or real human nature.

The time could be appropriate. My cult is asking people to promote well-being of man through developing spiritual relationships. But, this concern for spirituality is not unique or new. For thousands of years, several people had expressed the same thoughts using different words.
