  1. Some more Home Truths

    In urdu we also use 'Mauze' so i doubt if it is hindi word.It sounds like a persian one.Indians have problem prouncing words which end with sound 'z'.Just like Mumtaz Mehal became Mumtaj Mehal and now just Taj Mehal.

  4. Some more Home Truths

    Word Wahhabi brings up a lot of things too like Ban on Music/Qawwali , complete adherence to sharia ,enforcement of Burka on women , appliance of sharia law in muslim countries . But my point was Mr Doaba did not specifically talked about it. As far as Jihad is concerned well, it should not come across as a surprise it is considered as sixth pillar of Islam. Wahhabis put more emphasis on this pillar , they give two option to non muslims/govt either convert to Islam or give up your right to rule. And believe me many Muslims like myself have problem with it but it becomes difficult to argue with Wahhabis because they have entire collection of hadith to back up their claim. My personal take on this issue is unless there is complete reformation of Islam along the lines of Christian reformation in Europe , world will continue to suffer and i think it needless to say that vast majority of victims of this jihad are Muslims themselves. 70 thousand Pakistanis have been killed since 9/11 by the same wahhabi/debandi followers.

    Did he even mention Jihad ? He talked about split in Islam where two groups compete over who is real Sunni. And this debate absolutely has no affect on non Muslims. Perhaps he was talking about Nirankaris and Sikh situation i.e differences over ideology.

    well we use jaraab/jarabaan word for socks. Don't confuse it with jalaab which is used for loose motions.

  11. Some more Home Truths

    my hindi/punjabi is not that great.I heard the word Balidaan in some indians movies wasn't sure it is exlusively used for animal sacrifice.Would an average Indian know about Kurbani ?
  12. Some more Home Truths

    Sir I would differ here.Just have a look at all the sufi mausoleum in Punjab esp Data Darbar in Lahore.Thousands visit it daily.Sure Wahhabism have got some success in Pak thanks to Saudi money pumped into Paki madrassas but by and large our society is predominantly sufi/brelwi.

  16. Some more Home Truths

    It is used in both senses but this is not the issue my question still remains why there is (assuming there is not) no punjabi word for shaheed ?
  17. Some more Home Truths

    What is the Punjabi equivalent word for Shaheed(martyr) ? I think word shaheed is used for someone who sacrifices his life in the way of Allah.
  18. Well whatever little bit i read about pre islamic arabs in ahadith it says that female infanticide existed in pre islamic arabia.I remeber reading one incident where a man came to prophet and described how he buried his daughter alive this incident was described with such detail that prophet started crying.While reading this incident myself it brought me to tears. I don't remember in which book this incident was written but u can google.
  19. LOL dude you are making this up.I wonder why there are so much conspiracy theory lovers on this site. Anyways if it is well planned strategy no body has informed me yet
  20. read pre islamic history .Arabs also have patriarchal mindset like Indians.they were worried that if they have daughter then one day they have to call someone son in law.For some it was embarrassing.Now it does not mean that everyone was killing female child but there was this mentality among people and some people killed their daughters.
  21. I did not intend to blame them I was talking in terms of total fertility rate per women.As it measure children per woman not children per man.So I was saying in this context. 4 marriages are allowed but this custom is hardly followed.There is no custom of having more than one wife in all of subcontinent.If anyone decides to have another wife there is strong social and family pressure.There was also legislation by govt in 1964 which made it difficult to have more than one wife.This tradition may be followed in Saudi Arabia but not in our region.In Pakistan this tradition is practiced very rarely.I have lived my life in rural side of Punjab and i have yet to find a person having two wives.
  22. this is whole another subject not related to TFR rate. And who says an educated person can't be terrorist.
  23. Like I said mainly women with no education tend to have more children.Yes education is quite controlled but still there are a few professors in every university with atheist or communist leanings and even in some good colleges too.Such people who think outside the box greatly influence their students though process. Educated women rarely have more kids.Why do you thinkg TFR has dropped from 6.05 in 1990 to 2.64 in 2017 ? that too without any concrete effort from govt.It will reach to replacement level in a decade or so.The only reason for this decrease in TFR is women education.People are seeing the benefit of having less children.With less kids you can provide them good education and better living standard.
  24. This trend of having five,six,seven kids is gone.It was common in 1990s but now a days I don't see any couple having more than 3 children.I myself have two siblings. only if population keep growing at the same rate which i doubt it will. total fertility rate in Pak has been reduced to 2.68.Which will further decrease as women are getting educated. the only reason we have brought our TFR to 2.68 is women education, and we achieved this rate without adopting Chinese type draconian one child policy.In the next decade our population would be stabilized so no need to panic.Anyways India would be the last place our people will migrate.They can barely feed their own people.It is India which you should be worried about which is going to replace China as most populous country in few years.
