[mukto-mona] Re: {PFC-Friends} A nice letter---



Muslim parents demanded the abolition of pork in all the school canteens of a Montreal suburb. The mayor of the Montreal suburb of Dorval has refused, and the town-clerk sent a note to all parents to explain why. Here's that note:

"Muslims must understand that they have to adapt to Canada and Quebec, its customs, its traditions, its way of life, because that's where they chose to immigrate.

"They must understand that they have to integrate and learn to live in Quebec.

"They must understand that it is for them to change their lifestyle, not the Canadians who so generously welcomed them.

"They must understand that Canadians are neither racist nor xenophobic, they accepted many immigrants before Muslims (whereas the reverse is not true, in that Muslim states do not accept non-Muslim immigrants).

"That no more than other nations, Canadians are not willing to give up their identity, their culture.

"And if Canada is a land of welcome, it's not the Mayor of Dorval who welcomes foreigners, but the Canadian-Quebecois people as a whole.

"Finally, they must understand that in Canada (Quebec) with its Judeo-Christian roots, Christmas trees, churches and religious festivals, religion must remain in the private domain.
The municipality of Dorval was right to refuse any concessions to Islam and Sharia.

"For Muslims who disagree with secularism and do not feel comfortable in Canada, there are 57 beautiful Muslim countries in the world, most of them under-populated and ready to receive them with open halal arms in accordance with Sharia.

"If you left your country for Canada, and not for other Muslim countries, it is because you have considered that life is better in Canada than elsewhere.

"Ask yourself the question, just once, "Why is it better here in Canada than where you come from?" 'A canteen with pork' is part of the answer."

Before we go any further, this is what has been said by S. Pollock.

"{Polakake that is the question: "According to some sources, the Islamic invasion of the decline of Sanskrit, the ruler of all power in Urdu, Persian, ran to learn."

He said, "bullshit. Mithila was Sanskrit or nyayacarcara on your Sultanate of Bengal Nabadwip. Dara Shikoh reading Vedanta scholars Varanasi. Muslim rulers ruled the country for nearly Baroso years. They are one of forcibly converting Hindus in the country would purchase. Without their enthusiasm would not have survived Sanskrit. So does every vicissitudinous confused with religion. "}"

The real quote from the horse's mouth!

What has been said by Pollock got little bit distorted by others with their own takes. Did Muslim rulers try to impose religion on majority Hindus? Yes, they did as they did in Middle-east and then later in Persia. But India was a different animal. Culturally/traditionally, they were far more stubborn people as opposed to Persians. Did Muslim rulers impose Jijia tax on non-believers? The answer is yes too. So, I would not sugar coat Muslim rule as being ideal. They tried their best but failed to convince Hindus. Hindu intelligentsia did look down on Islam and that is why only poorer and lower caste Hindus went for Islamic message.
