Answer to queries raised lie in your words

in response to reader comment: Dear Farman, I'll be a little more specific

Answer to queries raised lie in your following words, "Mr F. N stop thinking Foriegn National". As you don't treat me an Indian hence you are bound to think in this manner. This thinking itself indicates that your thoughts are very much influenced by statements of chicken hearted politicians.

Regarding rest of your article I am thankful to you for your broader agreement upon involvement of politicians in creating atmosphere sour. We are inching closure because of this dialogue, some more points are to be dwellved and I hope dirt will settle.

Regarding 'Common Civil Code' I am submitting that all over the common laws are applicable upon citizens of India, either criminlal or civil. Regarding personal laws af marriage all communities have separate laws like Hindu Mariiage Act etc. Muslims, Parsis, Christians etc. and other minorities are also doing the same as permissible by constitution of India. The 'Common Civil Code' Regarding which you are referring is the stage managed rhetoric of politicians and a man like you had been trapped.

I think you will not like your child to be married by any other method than what Hindu Law & rituals prescribe. The person propogating & harping for 'Common Civil Code' may be requested to explain the definition of 'Civil Code' ( No such definition is given in Article 44 or any where else in Constitution of India), then it will become very easier to make laws in this regard.

Regarding Muslims attacking religious place I am committed to my words that "No Muslim" will ever attack religious place. Do we have monopoly of creating Advanis, Modis etc. in India only & Pakistanis have not ?

Regards

Submitting....
