    Dear Surjit Sahib, I just read all teh messages you left. So wonderful that your India is a country with great religious harmony where no mosques are ever demolished, no religious riots ever happen, no gurdawaras are ever attacked, everyone lives so very peacefully. Congratulations. I wish you the very best.

    RAVI[/quote] I have traveled all over India and see that there is a mosque in the middle of the road, but no body will think of demolish it, even to make way to commercial complex or main road. Go and look in New Delhi.The road will run around the Mosque.I believe there are no more Shamshan ghats for Hindus or Sikhs in Lahore for their deads, why?

    [quote comment=”1011″]Indeed this story is riding the wave of “Pakistan Bashing”. But GOP and Pakistanis should begin to realize the reality of the suppressed minorities in Pakistan. I was reading a piece that you wrote about Pakistani Jews a little while back. For those who havent read it yet, the phrase “Pakistani Jew” is not a ocntradiction but a reality. A reality that we have been brought up with. There were some families on my fathers side that were of the Jewish faith and were accepted openly back in the 50’s and 60’s. Our last name “Mir” is or Jewish origins (disputed). And a very important fact; The Merewether Tower, in Karachi around which everything in karachi revolves, bears a “Star of David” on each side of the Clock Tower.
    I’ll quote the Quaid: August 11, 1947, in the Constituent Assembly of Pakistan.

    “You are free; you are free to go to your temples, you are free to go to your mosques or to any other place of worship in this State of Pakistan. You may belong to any religion or caste or creed â€

    I would like to have devotee association while I am in Lahore in March, 2007. Please share with me some contact information here, make Krishna consciousness available to all who choose it, everywhere on the planet. Spiritual faith is our birthright, an individuals choice. The more secure we are on our chosen path, the more tolerant we become of others who chose a different path, because we are so steadfast in our faith that nothing can distract us from our mission. Jaya Sri Radhe!
