Best kept secret
By Ghulam Muhammed, Mumbai

Much is being made out about Thomas L. Friedman's writing of a quiz, in his New York Times article: asking its reader to guess which country is the home to world's second largest Muslim community in the world. Friedman had presumed that the most will reply: Saudi Arabia or Iran. As per LK Sharma's comments, the best kept secret today became `fit to print' in New York Times, when Friedman disclosed that the correct answer is India.

Sharma laments, if this information had been disclosed to President Bush even a day earlier, Bush would not have failed to invite the Indian envoy to the first-ever Iftar party held in the White House. The truth is that even Indian establishment is not comfortable disclosing to the world that Muslims do live in this country, if at all. The way, both Indian National Congress and Bharatiya Janata Party, have gone about, their utmost priority is to shut their country cousins in some dark and unfathomable closet, so that the shining face of India is not blemished with the shadow of a 'foreign' (?) relation.

For fifty long years, day in and day out, Muslims are pressed through a wringer with the ultimate motive of seeing them dissolve through the wash. But, alas, they are a hardy lot. The world has not heard the last of them. They had their day and they are destined to stage a comeback; not as foreign invaders, but as worthy sons of the soil. And these same cousins will dress them up and show them to the world as their most worthy and prized possessions - the most eligible grooms, who will bring in large dowries. Mr. L. K. Sharma has made a good beginning, in articulating the most suppressed wishes of the common people of India. After all in India, this is how all fairy tales come to their wonderful conclusions.
