In the millennium century there
has been truemondous amendments in humans, our values, our culture, our
lifestyles and our belief however I feel when it comes to feelings emotions and
relations we are still in stone age where we restrict our self to be with people
alike us whether it's nationality, religion, caste or language that we speak any
change is not welcome not appreciated an unfortunately not allowed.
A Muslim guy should only fall in love with a Muslim girl and should marry
someone who share the same religion which is very obvious helps to breed mature
and perfect family but why the barriers why bounding why constraints I m not
devaluing or I m not being disrespectful toeards the religion I m a proud Muslim
myself what my view is doesn't every religion teach you the same basic all of
beliefs are about being human towards other human having said why cannot a Hindu
girl fall in for a Muslim guy why cannot they be married and supported by the
families the society
The punishment of being different is death ! What a hipocresy we all have
They say that there is only one happiness in this life, to love and be loved.
... Than why we don't open the doors of happiness on those who are inside the
walls of fear those who desire each other but not equal on the scale of religion
language caste or nationality those who are unlike on social levels but the
souls are tied up
I can’t help but question the wisdom of a decision that has brought nothing but
anguish to all the parties involved. Entering into matrimony with a person who
follows the same faith does not guarantee a successful marriage – marrying a
compatible partner does.
There are those who find love and companionship within their communities,
however, there are others who find it outside. If one is fortunate enough to
meet an individual who fits the bill of one’s notion of an ‘ideal partner’ is it
logical or even fair to expect him to let go of an alliance, that he deems
perfect, on account of religious differences?
Finding a soul mate is difficult as it is; limiting one’s choices does not seem
like such a prudent idea.
The thought that keeps reverberating in my mind is – how obtuse would a parent
have to be to believe that religious beliefs and considerations supersede all
else- even the happiness of one’s own child? Rigid, antiquated religious or
social diktats that restrict personal liberties have no place in modern society.
Shedding inhibitions, brought about by regressive social and religious customs,
that curb an individual’s freedom of choice, is the hallmark of a progressive
mindset. Ancient religious practices that infringe on a person’s fundamental
right to choose his own life partner must be done away with. Every member of a
civilised society should have the freedom to exercise his right to love and
marry as per his or her wishes without any interference or threat from any
Relationships between people of different faiths have worked because the
language of love is universal and is comprehended by all irrespective of the god
they pay obeisance to.
As the cliché goes – love is blind; blind even to religious differences.
In such relationships, couples learn to celebrate and cherish their differences
rather than squabble over them.Religious conversions should not be a pre
requisite for such multi faith unions. Individuals can continue to follow their
faith while being a part of a joyous marriage to a person who follows a
different religion. It’s unfair to expect a woman to let go of her belief system
and thereby alter her identity just to please her new family. Converting for the
wrong reasons will only sow the seeds of resentment and put a strain on the
relationship.A person should embrace a new religion because he wants to, not
because he or she is compelled to.
I have always felt that too much time is spent worrying about which religion the
offspring of such marriages should follow. How about exposing them to both
religions and then letting them exercise their constitutional right to practice
any faith of their choice? It’s commendable that the children of such marriages
grow up truly understanding and respecting the importance of diversity.
In a countries like Pakistan and India , where people of various faiths co-exist
peacefully and mingle freely with each other in schools, colleges, offices and
neighbourhoods, such relationships should not come as a surprise. Inter-religion
unions are the obvious result of a pluralistic society and should be hailed as a
step towards integrating and unifying a mind bogglingly diverse nation. These
unions are a lesson in love, tolerance and acceptance
Although inter-religion marriages are becoming a common occurrence in India and
beyond, society still has a long way to go in ensuring that no other couple
meets the calamitous fate of my unfortunate friends.
The only dream that I have for my unborn children is to see them happy. Whether
they find this happiness with a Parsi, a Christian, a Jew, a Muslim, a Sikh, a
Jain, a Buddhist, a Hindu or even an atheist is inconsequential to me.
I’ll be happy as long as they are!
