Superstitions and strange beliefs are there in every Religion!! If one does good things in life he may go to heaven, might have been said in a good sense but if you take the abstract of it then a foolish belief!!
Mythological stories are meant to teach morals in life! Let us not justify one is correct and the other is wrong!
The difference is..Most from other religions don't take the superstitions and beliefs so seriously, that they have to go on the rampage and kill/behead others to try and make themselves a "hero" in order to get there and experience paradise if there,s such a thing..
