I am a girl who was born and brought up in a Muslim family in India. And in all the 21 years of my life, I have never once felt harassed by or discriminated against my religious counterparts. In fact the only trouble I ever had was being repeatedly asked questions like “Why do you not fast/ wear a veil?” by Hindus and Muslims alike.
Every single time I happen to read news articles (like a few I have mentioned below) stating what is happening in the Muslim world, I leave a huge sigh of relief and feel grateful that I was born in India and no place else.
I do not wear the Hijab, I do not pray five times a day and I celebrate Holi and Diwali with the same enthusiasm as Eid and Bakri Eid.
In India, I have no fear; I have the freedom to choose what I wish to follow and what I don’t. I am not afraid of being killed for seeking education, I do not get stigmatized for not wearing the Hijab, I am free to drive alone without the fear of being lashed and my career is not confined to only a few gender segregated job opportunities.
To sum it up, “I’d rather be a Muslim in India than in any other ‘Muslim’ country.”
I know that this is controversial, but someone has to say it –
1. Religion is obsolete
2. Islam needs to change. And change fast.
But also at fault are religious moderates who sanction these incidents by the acceptance of a framework that allow such barbarous acts. CharlieHebdo and the Peshawar attack were made possible by the silent sanction we have given to the very concept of religion.
Why Hindus never converted but now want to reconvert.
A good piece on religious tolerance where customs belonging to a religion and symbols,belonging to a religion , are used by the people professing another religion.In academic circles it is known as syncretism but the author likes to call it ‘making it our own’.
