Ideology is one of the concepts discussed and scrutinized by many scholars in various branches of science. However, there is no comprehensive definition of the word accepted by a majority of scholars. With respect to the features of Ideology which has been put forward by scholars, they can be divided into three main groups. The first group has a positive attitude toward ideology and regards it as a necessity for human life. The second one, offering negative definitions of ideology, does not evaluate it positively; rather, seeks to negate it as leading to division and separation. The last group introduces ideology as a neutral concept to which both positive and negatives features raised by different thinkers can be attributed. Jiddu Krishnamurti is one of the thinkers who have a negative attitude toward ideology and rejects it for some alleged qualities, including divorce, separation, seduction, and so on. This attitude is rejected by both religious and secular thinkers.
