parallelperceptions hat deine Frage beantwortet: you guys
Because Indians hate Pakistanis and vice versa.. In fact there isn’t an Indian and a Pakistan. The Hindus and Muslims couldn’t live together.
To what extent does being Muslim in the North of India mean you declare yourself to be an Urdu speaker, and to what extent do Hindus in Pakistan declare themselves to be Hindi speakers?
It is quite surreal to me, because the grammar and phonology of Yiddish are more different to German than Hindi to Urdu (for this reason many Yiddish speakers declare Yiddish to be a different language, but I’m happy as long as I get to use Hebrew letters and funny words). There’s a vigorous promotion of this dichotomy between things which are Muslim and things which are Hindu, right down to the language. Hindus don’t want to admit that Muslims are responsible (or at least as responsible as Hindus) for the India they claim to love so dearly today, and Muslims seem to have taken the two-nation theory so literally that anything which complicates that vision of the world is a serious problem. Also, as much as India claims to have been opposed to the two-nation theory, they clearly accepted it de facto. Look at the double standard between how India claims to be against the two-nation theory in Kashmir, but then annexes all the land it can claim to be “Hindu”. Hindus subscribe to the two-nation theory when it’s convenient for them, Muslims subscribe to it too fervently. Thoughts?
Also when I said that the problem of Hindi-Urdu distinction is only for India, Pakistan and Bangladesh, I meant in the Indian subcontinent. For other nations in the region such as Sri Lanka, we are quite happy to accept Hindi-Urdu being practically the same language with any variations taking real hold only after separation. Further the story goes that Hindi was the language spoken day to day whereas Urdu more closely resembles the formal court language before colonial involvement, etc. Nowadays however the languages have evolved formally and informally distinct from each other.
As far as the common man, the two languages are at a stretch not even as different as spanish and portugese. Both governments need to ensure the differences created by partition remain to address the balance of power in the region. And the religious extremists, which are many from both the hindu and muslim side, really exploit this. The problem with the northern india and most areas where there are lots of mountains like pakistan and afghanistan is that they are still stuck in a time long gone. They are full of tribal allegiances, religious allegiances, cultural weirdness, etc that aren’t always acceptable in this day and age.
This shouldn’t be a reflection of the nature of the mainstream versions of the religions they follow but it inevitably is.. And I don’t know if and when any of this will end.
Sorry about the length and don’t forget there is a lot of opinion here.
Reblogging it not because I agree with many of the things said, but still a worth reading exchange.
I went back home from work with a slight headache. Wanted to cook Mince and mixed vegetables but couldn’t finish that. Went out brought two dinners, sat down on my floor and ate it with my imaginary guest. Then went to sleep early though I wanted to finish that book I have been trying to read for over a month now. No it wasn’t as sad as it sounds - it was just very relaxing birthday which I had!
Tonight I hope to start sorting the photos from Tiesto party at Breahead Arena and post them online. And seriously I have been trying to post interesting posts, but it is too much a pressure to be interesting all the time. So yes for those who still like to read my non-sense - please bear the uninteresting posts.
Got a meeting tomorrow with an Event Management company and also need to send my portfolio to another Event Management company tonight.
Thank you. It is today (27th).
I am honestly overwhelmed by the good wishes through the messages, texts and calls I have been getting since yesterday. Also thank you for the dinner last night friends, it was really great - and especially leaving that note on the door really reminded of how it goes at my home.
Also this year my sister has decided to post my first birthday’s pictures on facebook - am so glad that I used to be “slightly” cute looking kid! (that does sound wrong but anyway it is my birthday so I can get away with it) So didn’t feel that much embarrassed.
Every year I notice some special sort of message coming up from friends and family on the day and this time apparently they have found time to tell me that I am getting old and need to settle down! Thank you guys!
But seriously guys, thank you :)
to write for print again. In fact I want to write again!
So yes if any paper decides to print my controversial gibberish - will let you know.
So I knew it was a long track, at least eight minutes. I felt pleased about that, because I knew after the song ended, we wouldn’t dance anymore, but go in and eat the casserole. And for all I knew, Emily would re-consider what I’d done to her diary, and decide this time it wasn’t such a trivial offence. What did I know? But for another few minutes at least, we were safe, and we kept dancing under the starlit sky.

and though I am not very touchy about loosing followers, I am sorry if I caused an offence. And just to be on record I did not make that thing, you can expect stuff like that from me on political and social issues or even on my own religion - but I stay clear of making rude comments (no matter how “awakening”) towards other faiths.
Got stuff to blog about, will try to do in a while.
Sure, with pleasure. I hope my blog readers will spare some time and above all some money to the cause. Will also be sharing it on my facebook in a while.
Best of luck you two!
And yes alhamdullilah it was good, thank you.
