Buddha or Karl Marx, a comparison by Dr.B.R.Ambedkar would let the readers evaluate both the revolutionists.
Buddha, a revolutionist born by 563 BC and Karl Marx in AD 1818. There's about more than 23 centuries between their birth time. Both of them have made a great impact on this planet through their works and thoughts. Dr.B.R.Ambedkar has justified who'd be the better choice by comparing both of them in a better way, which no one ever have tried.
Buddha, who's been promoted as a founder of a religion, but never claimed himself as such. His thoughts and works are towards the enlightenment of the common man. As per his words, "Religion is necessary for a Free Society" and at the same time says that "It is wrong to make God the center of Religion". Which would confuse a bit the common man. Buddha says that religion should be based on values than some fictitious characters.
Karl Marx, on the other hand said that "Religion is Opium". He's asked to shun the religion.
Both, Buddha and Karl Marx have one thing in common. They've said that "Personal Property" is the reason for the chaos on this land, though both of them have about more than 23 centuries as timeline difference.
So, both of them are suggesting the same destination whereas the path they've asked to subscribe is totally different.
Dr.B.R.Ambedkar, who's more fond of democracy and has been the chairperson of the drafting committee of world's one of the largest democratic country, India, has evaluated both the revolutionists suggestion and concluded whose path would be the better one and democratic one altogether.
