Are you Pakistani? Are you a terrorist? The questions Muslim children face at school

Stereotypes about the Muslim community have entered into classrooms and playgrounds, seeping in from the polarising rhetoric prevailing in the larger world of politics, society, mass media and social media

Magazine | Pakistani or terrorist? The questions Muslim children face at school:

High time Parents and others become more aware of these kind of incidents. Let alone disturbing the harmony, it slowly plants a poisonous seed among the children. We should be better than this.

@shibaprasad High time you folks stopped peddling this nonsense. Parents atleast Hindus don't teach their Children's anything about religion... Muslims do so stop whining here and go advise your Muslim friends ! LOL!

No one peddling any nonsense. And it is great if you haven't taught any nonsense to your child. Continue doing so. But you or me don't comprise the world or the nation. The thing of hating someone for having a different religion is a cultural/educational thing. And it is pretty much there.

@shibaprasad hating someone for a different religion which I agree happens but is different from teaching your child to hate others which is what I termed nonsense cause Hindus don't even teach their Children slokas these days while Muslims make them learn Qur'an that is full of hate for other religions! So don't come here and try to preach by shifting goal posts and making Hindu some sort of a Devil!!


I am not making Hindus any devil. The so called Devils are from two sides. And your statement about "Hindus don't even teach their children" is so wrong on so many levels. You're acting like a nincompoop who is in complete oblivion.

The great thing about Hindu Religion is its diversity. A Hindu from West Bengal has a completely different religious perspective from a Hindu of UP. You can't say Hindus don't teach this or that because of the large bandwidth of differences we have in culture and everything.

@shibaprasad Extra-territorial loyalties need to be guarded against ... if you are not with us, you are probably against us and we need to take guard ..

I couldn't get what you meant by guarded against Sir. Could you elaborate a bit.

@shibaprasad Prithviraj Chauhan let down his guard and acted generously towards Mohd of Ghor ... and you know what happened next
