Step Towards Interfaith Harmony Between Sikhs And Muslims In Hounslow


Recommended Posts

Segregation doesn't create harmony, it fosters misunderstanding and suspicion. One simply needs to observe the history of the peoples forced to live in ghettoes (Jews and Blacks in particular) to know that their isolation made them subjects of mistrust and ignorant stereotypes.

All the ethnic and religious communities in the UK seems perfectly happy living with one another. Except one, whom I don't even need to mention. This is their problem, not ours. They are the only ones calling for society at large to change in order to suit their whims and certain horrible tenets of their archaic desert religion (i.e. the ritualized torture of poor animals, which goes for the Jews too, and the forcible mutilation of the genitals of children).

I do not mean segregate every one just the community who can't mix.

At the time of Partition, the Gurdaspur district was meant to go to Pakistan. The only reason why it did not was that Nehru realised that direct road links to Kashmir would be lost. He managed to convince Mountbatten to keep it in India. Mountbattens wife was having an affair with Nehru so he had a useful communication route. At no time was Gurdaspur left in India due to a sizeable Sikh population.

They were thinking that all of Doaba was going to go to Pakistan as well because of the huge Muslim population there. Most of the Arains today in Pakistan can trace their roots back to Doaba region.

We are indeed, especially when one takes into account how the object of this sham 'interfaith harmony' exercise is for Sikhs to now play their part and in return visit a Mosque.

And there you have it. Naiveity in a nutshell. No Muslim stepped foot in the Gurdwara and yet a bunch of naive Sikhs are about to return an imaginary goodwill gesture by 'muslims' that never happened by visiting a Mosque.

You couldn't make this stuff up. :(

How is that 'naive'? Some Ahmadis visited a Sikh Gurdwara and now some Sikhs are visiting an Ahmadi mosque. What's the problem exactly?

Interfaith itself is now becoming bunch of farce. They all come speak good things about their faith- its so typical, get excited on dry ideology of their faith devoid of any experience totally ignoring problems in their own community, ignoring hypocrisy of followers in their respective faith. Then you have those neo atheist right wing which is more even extreme in their ideology.

One of the reason Guru Nanak dev nirankar came in this earth to point out religious hypocrisy and to encourage people to transcendent from pre-conceived notions, raise people bar, and remember one humanity. In lot of ways, we express that live in experience in form of langar- treating everyone equally.

I think interfaith should be more about action/walking the talk then just pure rhetoric/typically drawing pretty picture of their dharam -dry conceptual ideology ...most western people/egalitarian people are tired of hearing same old typical speech, time to proof it. If followers of respective faith, cannot walk the talk then its just illusion. All interfaith communities should first talk about essence of their religion then talk about how they (community) can improve following those teaching, revise after 6 months and list out how they are improved embodied those teaching, live it through because its automatically presented by delusion interfaith people that community is already following essence of their religion which is not true at all. Interfaith now days has become scoring soccer points, competition, pure farce.

All religion-essence teaching is about practical living, if person cannot embodied truth(sat) of dharam then they have no right to represent dharam, give pretty speeches.
