Re: [mukto-mona] Fw: I am a Hindu—and a proud Pakistani

It is a slogan. If it really came from a Hindu, he was probably trying the hopeless act of appealing to the hateful minds that have been committing systematic discrimination and barbaric atrocities against religious minorities in Pakistan. Whether he is a Hindu or a Muslim; if had any brain, he would not be proud to be a Pakistani. What is there to be proud of being a Pakistani?
For relevant thoughts, a Bangladeshi can be proud that his people fought a successful democratic struggle for their rights over the years of 1947-1971; they fought a liberation war with mostly their patriotism and courage against a well-armed brute force; they have been empowering women significantly; they have improved their economy remarkably; and their boys are playing great cricket lately. While Bangladesh has the scourges of Islamic fanaticism, corruption and irresponsibility, the country surely has some facts to be proud of.

Is that a slogan or it means something?

I agree with Asad - Pakistan has not done anything in the last 68 years for Hindus or any other religious minorities, for that matter,  to represent that view.

This can be a wish of a religious minority in Pakistan, but practically does not support the slogan. Let me ask - where are those Hindus, who opted to stay back in Pakistan after 1947 partition?
