Why is it ok if,
a Hindu marries a Hindu,
a Hindu marries a Christian
a Hindu marries a Sikh
a Hindu marries a Bengali, etc etc
But why isn't it ok if a Hindu marries a Muslim, or a Muslim marries
a Hindu ?
Why is there this barrier, why should two people who love each
not be able to live together. Is it the society ?, or is it because
the next generation of Muslims (now) are totally brainwashed and
totally illiterate and backward ?, answers please ....
The way the question is put, it sounds very simple, however, the
more pertinent question is would a marriage between a Hindu and a
Muslim, or a Hindu and a Christian, or a fascist and a communist,
or a Labour and a Tory MP, etc. stand even half a chance to last
and survive? Probably not. Like all ideologies, Islam is exclusive in
some of its claims and cannot accommodate their negation without
resulting hypocrisy and foul compromise. So a marriage between
two people of competing religious beliefs or ideologies would only
work if neither of the two partners really believed in their creed, but
simply called themselves by that label. In other words, the inter-
religious mix described in the question presupposes a secular
society where religion is of no more importance than a preference
for a particular kind of food or fashion.
