It seems as though because of leaders of both sides, the common man in both countries has made it a habit to hate the other without reason. If government of a certain country is messed up, why should I hate the people living in that country. Or if certain people follow a different religion, why do I have to hate them. It is only the devil that incites hatred.
Before the British invaded India, there was only one country, And we should remember that we fought against them together, whose purpose was to divide and rule. Hindus and Muslims fought side by side, shoulder to shoulder, as brothers.
It seems like we need a reason to fight. In the name of nationality, religion, sect, caste, culture, and whatever we can find. Last time I checked, we were humans. Even animals learn to live in co-operation, so why can’t we? The worst example of hatred is the breaking of TV sets by people on both sides of the border when their country loses a cricket match. Let’s learn to love.
The best thing said by some people is that it doesn’t matter whether India wins or Pakistan. The trophy will come back to the subcontinent. To those people who hold such mentality, I can only say that calling it commendable would be an understatement.
Visit any website run by a Hindu and you will see all kinds of rubbish against Muslims and Islam. Visit any website run by a Muslim and you will see India bashing. It’s about time we stopped all the nonsense and grew up.
I don’t want to get too serious so here is a little humor. Enjoy.
