Josh Schrei helped me understand G-O-D (Generator-Operator-Destroyer) concept of the divine that is so pervasive in the Vedic tradition/experience. Quantum Theology by Diarmuid O'Murchu and Josh Schrei article compliments the spiritual implications of the new physics. Thanks so much Josh Schrei.

Hindu’s in Pakistan Receive no Public Holiday for any Religious Festivals


Hindu’s in Pakistan Receive no Public Holiday for any Religious Festivals



Pak Hindus don't get time to celebrate during religious holidays such as Holi and Diwali
Multan, Pakistan (CHAKRA) – Hindu’s in Pakistan celebrated Holi like many of the worlds Hindu community did for one of the biggest Hindu festivals of the year but while the celebrations happened most Hindus had to go to work without the option of having a public holiday.
While most employers are flexible about giving days off on holidays, and the government allows a certain number of religious holidays, taking a leave of absence for a day was not an option open to any of the Hindu employees in Pakistan.
Shankuntala, whose husband works for a government office in Multan, stated her lament about minorities in the country not having equal rights and thus being able to take a day off on their religious holidays. She said that minorities in Pakistan do not have the same rights as the majority population in Pakistan.
Over seven million Hindus live in Pakistan, according to the 2011 Pakistan Hindu Councils statistics. This number is almost double the number of Christians living in the country who enjoy the right of a day off on Christmas every year.
Hindus on the other hand, live in fear because even though the constitution says religious minorities should enjoy the same rights as their majority counterpart, no Hindu can stand up to the injustice they face solely due to fear.
The head of state sends out greeting messages to the public for Eid and Christmas but no such greeting is ever made out for Hindu religious celebrations.
Students and school teachers who are Hindu never get to enjoy the celebrations because there is no public holiday in schools. Thus overtime children start to lose their culture and roots because they are not able to participate in important festivals such as Holi, says Shankuntala.

But how is it that India always seems to feel concerned about the plight of only the Kashmiri Pandits? Is it because other Indians in Pakistan and even Kashmir are non-Pandits?

we need to do is stop calling ‘Kashmiri Hindus’ as ‘Kashmiri Pandits’ it only promotes castism as it only talk about a community. 2ndly there is indeed a priority problem, Indian Hindus should also focus on Pak-Bangla Hindus, we seems to have forgotten them due to our blind nationalism and lack of vision of hindu groups.

My question is: “But how is it that India always seems to feel concerned about the plight of only the Kashmiri Pandits? Is it because other Indians in Pakistan and even Kashmir are non-Pandits?” Krishna has understood it right and made relevant observations and suggestion. I am sorry for sufferings of any one comparable to those suffered by so-called Kashmiri Hindus. But why can they not call themselves Kashmiri Hindus? My question as to whether there are any Kashmiri non-Pandits and Kashmiri Hindus still left in Kashmir? Were no non-Pundit Hindu was made to undergo similar sufferings?

Answer to Dr S L Dhani:
My question as to whether there are any Kashmiri non-Pandits and Kashmiri Hindus still left in Kashmir? Answer: The non-muslims in Kashmir Valley are mostly Hindu-Pandits and Sikhs. Hindus aka Pandits suffered a genocide. Here term Pandit is a subset of term Hindu.
But how is it that India always seems to feel concerned about the plight of only the Kashmiri Pandits? Answer: Government of India is not at all concerned about plight of Kashmiri Pandits. That is precisely the reason Government took no action to prevent genocide or identify and punish the guilty. There is zero attempt to persecute guilty and provide justice.
Is it because other Indians in Pakistan and even Kashmir are non-Pandits? Let me correct the question first, It should say Is it because other Hindus in Pakistan are non-Pandits. Hindus in Pakistan, Malaysia or Fiji are suffering but they are outside the legal juridiction of Govt. of India. It is not Govt. of India’s duty to identify and punish those who committed crime againsts hindus in those places.
