Why I'm not interested in Religion ?

I am not that much interested in religious matter though  it is the part of human conditioning, its problem as well as solution. I said I'm not interested in the sense to promote it. I'm interested to learn and explore about the knowledge but not to promote it like what missionaries, Indian sages and Nepalese and Indian politicians are doing in Nepal and India to keep everyone in dark and not letting people to think logically so that they can fool, bull and rule over their mind.

However, If Nepalese or else are encourage to follow religion in encouraging them while preaching saying,

"“Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.”
- Buddha"

Then I would appreciate it.

Though it is not the original statement of Buddha. It is the paraphrase version to make it simple simple to understand. The original version as per the Kalama Sutta was

“Now, Kalamas, don’t go by reports, by legends, by traditions, by scripture, by logical conjecture, by inference, by analogies, by agreement through pondering views, by probability, or by the thought, ‘This contemplative is our teacher.’ When you know for yourselves that, ‘These qualities are skillful; these qualities are blameless; these qualities are praised by the wise; these qualities, when adopted & carried out, lead to welfare & to happiness’ — then you should enter & remain in them.”
