What would be the Fate of Pious Non Muslims on the Day of Judgment

One of the most sought out question both by Muslims and Non Muslims is what would be the fate of pious non Muslims on the day of Judgment - that is whether they would go to paradise for being pious and helping mankind or would face the hell fire for not accepting Islam when it had reached them?

There have been many freeness to the effect to answer the question in the Holy Qur'an and even in the Hadiths of the Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ). The oft quoted verse from the Holy Qur'an to answer this question is found in Surah al-Bayyinah 98:6]:
“Verily, those who disbelieve (in the religion of Islam, the Qur’an and Prophet Muhammad) from among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) and Al-Mushrikoon (the non believers) will abide in the fire of Hell. They are the worst of creatures”
Likewise, the Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) has been quoted in saying in Sahi Muslim 153: 
“By the One in Whose hand is my soul, no one of this nation, Jew or Christian, hears of me then dies without having believed in that with which I was sent, but he will be one of the people of the Fire.” 
There are many interpretations and view point on the subject. But it is generally believed that whether Muslim or non-Muslim, if one does not adhere to the commandments of Allah in whichever form they come in and in whichever religion they are espoused in, one will have to answer for one's beliefs and faith.

This question has often crept into my mind too and I too have been looking for an appropriate answer to this query. I too have been wandering as others, for some believe Mother Tresa had her life devoted for helping the poor should stand out from the rest on the Day of Judgment for her service to mankind and humanity. While some argue that what she had been doing was to serve the cause of her religion, which shares the Jesus Christ (Prophet Eesa, peace be upon him) and the holy spirit with God, something that strictly negates the concept of One true Allah in Islam.

Watch the answer to this important and most oft asked question from Jāvēd Ahmad Ghāmidī, a Pakistani Muslim theologian, Quran scholar, Islamic modernist, exegete and educationist in the video below. Though the conversation is in Urdu, its English translation in subtitles on the screen will help non Urdu peaking to know Professor's view point:
May Allah help us know the truth no matter how bitter it may be' but one must standby the ultimate truth dispelling all prejudices, religious beliefs other than Islam and pragmatic thinking and reasoning.
