It was Moharram when the Muslims mourn the death of two Arab fighters in Irak, Hassan and Hussain.
Here in our Hindusthan, the sacred land of Rishis, Gurus and Mahatmas, many Muslims started wailing and crying for the two Arabs. Enlightenment came suddenly to one, who speaks the Panjabi language at home and is the descendant of a Hindu ancestor two generations ago. He declared,
"We must repent wailing, grieving and crying for Hassan & Hussain, the two alien Arabs of Mecca, but not shedding a tear for the two little sons of Guru Gobind Singhji, our own race, culture, language, blood & ethnicity, who were brutally murdered at Sarhind under the influence of Koran, and for the hundred thousand Hindu captives, mostly women and girls, who perished in snow and cold in HINDUKUSH mountain, as well as the thousands abducted and raped, the millions murdered and uprooted in the name of ISLAM at Partition in 1947, and also for all the YAZIDI girls and women captured, raped and sold by the Islamic State (Daesh) in 2015, and wish to turn a new leaf by forsaking the Faith brought by the INVADERS from Arabia but embrace the one that is native, in order to rejoin Mother India for a decent civilized & peaceful living in the future!"
I admired his courage and good sense as well as patriotism.
