There is a Bengali proverb, [Bengali], that “One man wanted to take statistics, ‘How many thieves are there in this village?’ So when he began to take statistics, he saw everyone is thief. Then he said that ‘What is the use of making statistics? This is village of thieves, that’s all.’ ” At the present moment this is the position. If you make a statistics who is sinful and who is not sinful, you will find all sinful.
