With regard to "a debate that should have been held on March 28, 1940," (see below), we suggest seriously that it should be held NOW. \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ The CLASH is- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\"Koran vs. Geeta".\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ The CLASH is "Momin vs. Kafir".\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ The CLASH is "Believer vs. Infidel".\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ The CLASH is "Aggressive Alien vs Submissive Native".\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ The CLASH is the spirit of JEHAD vs TOLERANCE.\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ The CLASH is Revenge vs Forgiveness.\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ The CLASH is Fundamentalism vs Secularism.\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ The CLASH is Separatism vs Integration.\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ The CLASH is Indoctrination & Fanaticism vs Liberalism.\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ The CLASH is Compulsion to Convert vs Acceptance.\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ The CLASH is Stoning women to death, "Cutting off hands and feet" vs Civilisation.\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ The CLASH is till death. It has existed since 712 AD. It is perennial. It is constant. \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ Hinduism could tolerate, integrate, reform and remould every other belief and view, but not Islam. \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ Pakistan (now Pakistan and Bangladesh) is the most vocal living proof of that. They will rather starve, beg and even fight among themselves to death, but never consider joining Bharat that gave them birth and nourished them. All the leaders and founding fathers of Pakistan were BORN IN INDIA. \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ Therefore, it's never too late to attend to the problem that is not only consuming the nation but destroying it. \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ The situation today, in 2012, is the same as in 1942 (pre Noakhali and pre Partition) and we know what happened five years later. \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ We need not be as complacent as the generation of 1942 and see the whole country engulfed in flames while then it was only five unfortunate States that were to lose their freedom, secularism and civilisation in order to form Pakistan. \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ ======. \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ In a message dated 31/07/2012 14:03:15 GMT Daylight Time, writes: Kashmir and a few districts in West Bengal are peripheral issues - the main issue in the future as it was in pre-partition days is going to be the heartland of India, and then India as a whole. Giving away parcels is not the solution. The very basic issue why partition was demanded should have been discussed brutally. If Muslims cannot live with Hindus in Muslim majority areas, how can they live in Muslim minority areas? Or you keep on giving parcels as and when Muslim population increases in certain areas? Why do these areas have to contiguous to Pakistan or Bangladesh? What about parts of Kerala, UP or Bihar? If Muslims could not coexist as a minority in the whole of India as it was before partition, how could they live in partitioned India? What was so difficult to figure out?\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ It is about time to have an open debate -- a debate that should have been held on March 28, 1940.
