    Yes exactly.
    As the great journalist Mobashar Jawad Akbar said 'Hindus did not get India. Secular people got India... the day my country India becomes a religious rashtra (state) it will suffer the same fate as Pakistan.

    So Muslims and Hindus and Sindhis and Christians and Jews and Sikhs and everyone got India for better or for worse'

    I totally agree with you bhai!
    I doubt Indian will ever be a religious rashtra ever because that is against the constitution unconstitutional
    A powerful secular democratic India = Better world
    A house divided cannot stand -
    Abraham Lincoln
    United we rise , divided we will fall

    I am confident that we will always be united and make our all our founding fathers watching over us from above are proud

    Abdul Kalam sir(God bless him) always wanted India to be a superpower, we will turn his aspirations and dreams into reality in the coming decades and Tagore always wanted India to be secular, a place where no narrow mindedness exists, where everyone works hard and does awesome stuff where it be no discrimination on the basis of religion or class/caste or anything. Into thy heaven of freedom my father, let my country awake! Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high! Not only Tagore but all the architects of our constitution.
    Yes M.J Akbar has now joined BJP and is Minister of State for external affairs

    Was he also the reason for gujrat killings? Is he also the reason of the beef ban in this "secular" country?
    Is he the reason people get killed on accusations if eating beef in India?
    Well i have specified that Hindus died in the Gujarat killings too and Modi was a puppet back then he had no control and no political/ administrative experience.
    Beefban is according to article 48 of the Cattle protection act, cattle is protected ,
    This did not happen due to hindutva, it was passed as per the constitution legally
    Can a secular state like India tolerate Sharia law within it that is the greatest insult of our
    Constitution and our Democracy in comparison to your Hindutva driven beef ban? The best court sentence you can get is max 3 months in jail for it not death sentence
    Also , beef is offensive to hindus ( also Sikhs) just like pork is offensive to muslims and so pork is rarely/never consumed by even Hindus here aswell. So muslims respect the decision of Hindus or sikhs and dont eat beef in most places and Hindus dont eat pork aswell mostly
    Indian being home to every religious group in the world, some disputes are bound to happen obviously

    Pork is Haram for Muslims to eat not because it is sacred, but because pigs are unclean and Allah has commanded us not to eat it, so it should have no bearing on what Hindus eat or don't eat (so that is a misunderstanding on their part, and therefore it is not comparable to beef) because eating pork doesn't offend us. Also, there is nothing in Sikhi (as far as I am aware) which teaches that cows are sacred. Rather it was only said to refrain from consuming them during Ranjit Singh's rule as to not offend the Hindus.

    It's fun seeing people talk about stuff they dont even know about. All the stuff on media is biased when it comes to india v pakistan. Simple truth is, these countries will never stop fighting as long as there are people preaching hate to young ones on both sides, which i doubt will stop anytime soon, with media constantly manipulating people, and stories popping up which are one sided always.

    Yes genius i know pork is haram in islam and cow is sacred to Hindus, sects of Sikhism, I'm not dumb. Yes Islam is the best religion and what not now shut up please idc . Refraining from eating beef is better than living under inhumane sharia law for indian muslims anyways ,If refraining from beef eating is the cost of democracy then so be it, better than living under isis or in iran or saudi .Please stop your sermons, yes it is sacred to sikh who are ravidassia and Kabir panthi sikh, dera saccha sauda followers and members of Radha swami satsangh Vyas( many sikh are members) satsangh and Nirankaris, people who followed sant nirankari baba and various other sects etc
    Also all amritdhari sikh are totally vegetarians

    You haven't even addressed my point - my point was avoiding pork out of respect for Muslim beliefs if is a load of rubbish since consuming it doesn't offend us.

    You have not shown why cows are religiously sacred to Sikhs from a textual point of view (i.e. referenced this view). Radha Swamis don't consider cows sacred from a teaching point of view, nor do Amritdharis (being vegetarian doesnt make cows sacred); idk about the rest as I am not familiar with them.

    The speech — “You are free, you are free to go to your temples, you are free to go to your mosques or any other place of worship in this State of Pakistan. You may belong to any religion or cast or creed — that has nothing to do with the business of the State ... Now I think we should keep that in front of us as our ideal and you will find that in course of time Hindus would cease to be Hindus and Muslims would cease to be Muslims, not in the religious sense, because that is the personal faith of each individual, but in the political sense as citizens of the State” — in which the Quaid explicitly spoke of giving equal rights and freedom
    anyone can make a nice speech - it is irrelevant, all you have to look is at both countries, india ( by no means perfect lets remember ) became a secular democracy where a sikh a muslim hindu buddhist etc could become president.

    pakistan became an islamist state, an enclave for extremeists and a hive for fundamentalist dictats from the middle east , and the islamic worlds terrorist factory. and in the same time pakistan went from pre partition area of economic strneght and education, to the current failed experiment

    there is a reason why india is home to 6 of the worlds major religions unlike pakistan

    Conflicts that transcend generations are perpetuated because of ideological reasons such as religion or nationalism. Children are not born wanting to hate, kill, steal, etc. The adults are to blame for this.

    I like it when people agree with me...

    In that case idk what the reason is then but i have been all over India , lived in India since i was born and have never seen beef and pork on restaurant menus, being served/sacrificed in mosques like Jama masjid or Haji ali dargah even on occasions like bakr- eid but seen them sacrifice thousands of goat and sheep, people of any religion cooking or eating pork or beef
    No cows are not "religiously" sacred to the sikh and sikhism does promote vegetarianism
    Maybe this is way of showing respect to the fellow hindu countrymen who are 80% of India then taking their religious sentiments into consideration maybe also to respect the decision of muslims , who are 14% of India
    So both quite large religious groups and both of them want to be accepting, tolerant and want to be on friendly terms and be united with each other, prevent religious violence. Other Indian religions(like sikhism 1.7%) , Baha i, parsis, Christians are 6%.
    Maybe the factor that 60-70% of Indias pop is vegetarian so maybe that is a factor idk
    I have seen the sermons of Radha swamis (notice that the name of their organization has Radha in it ,who is featured along with Krishna in Vedic mythology)
    and they consider both the granth sahib and the gita, vedas etc sacred and often quote stuff from the bhagwat gita alongside the granth sahib, sooo
    Considering the gita sacred= considering cows sacred
    Considering cows sacred= Abstaining from consumption of beef and not letting cow slaughter happen
    So i guess you get the idea

    Yes amritdharis consumption of all meat is banned
    Maybe traditions and beliefs followed by ancestors for 3000-4000+ years are kinda hard to totally change.
    There are many sikh sects that ban beef consumption, many of them are somewhat something consisting of both sikh and hindu beliefs ( account for 20-30% of Sikh in Indian Punjab like kabirpanthi, Raviddassia and many others that try to connect both beliefs with using shlokas and sculptures in the vedas, puranas, epics gita that identify god as formless and say that idol worship exists not to defy a formless god but to connect closer to him just like "Akal Murta" or "IK Onkar" and stuff and lots of other stuff aswell and what not) so maybe to keep them in confidence and associated with Sikhism sikh organisations like shiromani akali gurudwara prabandhak committee decided to preach against beef eating also political parties like shiromani akali dal
    If this may be of any relevance then i might aswell add that the followers of these sects like ravidassia and kabir panthi predominantly consist of people from the so called "Lower castes" and Cast based discrimination, honor killings and violence is not uncommon in Punjab and even among the sikh here even when it has nothing to do with our religion. For eg recently i saw news of a Jatt sikh womans family, who had fallen in love with a "lower caste" man refusing to get them married and killing them when they ran away from home and messed up stuff like this, so i guess the so called "lower castes" did not feel like they belonged and kinda drifted away i guess maybe that could be a possibility but idk
    This problem exist among Muslims aswell, muslims of arabic origin discriminating against muslims of indian origin, uppar caste muslims (eg Rajput )discriminating against lower caste, muslims beating up muslims who try to leave islam
    Im a Jatt Sikh myself and have seen dalts being illogically discriminated by members of my own community but now everything is changing fast and India is progressing rapidly economically as well as socially with the highest growth rate among major world economies like 7.6% in financial year 2015-16
    So maybe all this is related but **** is complicated
    Just trying to be unbiased on this one

    Has Pakistan ever had a Hindu/Sikh/ Biddhist/Ahmadiyya President?
    Lmao Fact- Our 20 largest companies have (individually) annual revenues double the total cost of your CPEC project( 46 billion $ according to dawn)
    Our largest seven companies that are members of Fortune 500 have , if combined
    Have massively larger Net worths than the whole economy of Pakistan combined and doubled
    While Pakistan has only one company that is even in the fortune 2000 Forbes list while India has a massive number on there

    Pakistans total nominal GDP =285 Billion US$ (2016)
    Net worths of 4 largest private sector Indian corporates-
    Reliance Industries= 90 billion US $(2016)
    Tata group = 117 billion US$ (2016)
    Aditya Birla Group= 41 Billion US$ ( 2014)
    Arcelor Mittal= 76.84 billion US$US$ (2014)
    So the total comes down to 324.84 billion US$
    324billion US$ is greater than 285 billion US$
    Indian companies ( as per nationality) are third largest foreign investors in the UK( eg Jaguar land rover is owned by Tata group)
    Our automotive sector is second only to Japan in Asia
    Our IT/Software sector one of the largest in the world
    While our Pharmaceutical sector (eg Sun Pharmaceuticals, kudos to Dilip sanghvi) is one of the most efficient and cost effective in the world. While being cheaper(1/3rd in terms of cost) than its American and european counterparts it is able to maintain the same high quality and is exported through out the world

    Our companies are everywhere!
    In every sector and in every major economy

    We dont have to beg foreign countries for aid
    Bruh

    Pakistani economy is non existent as compaired to India. Even Israel has a bigger one, you cant even compete with our zionist allies, shame on you lol

    Yes Pakistani economy is better than the Indian economy, and is developing faster lol you are misinformed lmao



    Also remember that India is one of the largest economies in Asia while pakistan is one of the weakest. India is the fastest growing economy in the world right now growing at 7.6% in FY 2015-16 while Pak economy grew at 4.5%. India is ahead of China in terms of growth rate as Chinese economy is slowing down
    It is India's time to shine now

    Read through this thread and you'll understand why I gave up on hoping for peace between Indians and Pakistanis, when you still have *******s in this world.

    I do feel bad for Indian Muslims though, who have to listen to constant anti-Muslim rhetoric by certain Indians. Otherwise they could've been the ones we can look at to say Muslims and other Indian religions can live in harmony.
    If only India would treat religious minorities as well as Pakistan does eh. Oh wait....

    If I was Indian or not Pakistani you wouldn't be saying this. I even said I'd like to see better relations to prove different religions can live peacefully.

    I don't know why I try though, talk to any Pakistani or Indian about their country and it's like talking to a brick wall, both think they're the best most amazing god damn country in the world with nothing wrong with them :lol: Patriotism is a cancer

    I guess the main point I wanna say is we need to learn to distinguish between the culprit and the group they belong to, there would've been Muslims who had no issues with Sikhs in those days with the Guru's. If the Guru's were accepting of Muslims (those who did no wrong) and people of all religions, then so should we. (Or to aspire to be like that)

    It's down to us to explain our history or religion's history to our future generations, but to do so clearly and ensure it isn't taken the wrong way that promotes some hatred to entire groups (which is against the core principle of nearly every religion anyway)

    Spoiler:

    I think we've gone really off topic, perhaps best to end this conversation here :lol: I do understand where you're coming from and don't disagree, just giving my view
    Well the fact is that for most crucial decisions in history it was only one person who made that decision, but you cant just blame that one person, you have to blame the group as it is the group who gave that person the power to make the decision.

    ******** we are spending an incredible amount of money to protect shias and hazaran community this muharram which we have been doing since RAW backed agencies started carrying out terrorism acts on then.We welcome thousands of sikh pilgrims every year.Speaking if Hindus I think u didn't see the article I shared in one of my previous replies I understand u have a very short attention span and are unable to absorb things that are contradicting your state propaganda but pls try
