Reverence of Hindu sages by Muslim thinkers

Submitted by Abdul Momin


In 2001, there was an article in the Hindustan Times in which the Indian Prime Minister had highlighted Iqbal's praise for a Hindu reilgious figure. Apparently Iqbal is not alone amongst Muslims in revering prominent Hindu sages. At the following link in the newspaper Dawn is an article in which Hafeez Jalandhari pays homage to Lord Krishna:

    From Rashid Jahangiri:

    New name of Pakistan’s Ministry of Religious Affairs.

    Few days ago in my overseas trip I came across a Hajj Guidance/ information book published, in Urdu language, by Government of Pakistan. On its title it said  ‘Wazarat-e-Mazhabi Ammor Aur Bain-al-Mazahib Hama-Angi’ (Translation: Ministry of Religious Affairs and Inter-faith Harmony).

    Not too far in past the name of this ministry was ‘Ministry of Religious Affairs and Minority Affairs’. In Pakistan non-Muslim minorities, including Lahori-Ahmadis and Qadiani-Ahmadis are treated as second class citizens. This change in name of ministry at least on paper is telling us government of Pakistan is feeling pain from the bite of monster it created in 1974. Now government is trying to soften its approach towards the lesser citizens of the “Land of Pure”.
