Islam in India
Why is it OK for a Muslim to greet a fellow Muslim at work by saying ‘As-salamu alaykum’? If religiously tinted greetings are OK at work, then would he greet a Hindu colleague by saying ‘Jai Ram Ji Ki’? Have you heard of a Muslim doing that? Would he accept ‘Jai Ram Ji Ki’ in response to his ‘As-salamu alaykum’?
Even if we accept that Faiz’s poem was in the context of a protest against a Pakistani dictator, why sing it in India against a democratically elected government and a democratically passed law (CAA)?
The history of IUML shows that they have always echoed the opinions of the Pakistan government, while also being an ally in the Congress-led UPA in Kerela.
