Well at least you admitted that there is a problem. And if you might not know, I've actually supported India sometimes over Pakistan knowing that you guys were on the right side. And yes, we have more in common than Turkey and Saudi Arabia.Out of curiosity, when was your last visit to India and which regions have you been to?
It is true that poverty + social hygiene + lack of adequate public sanitation has been a big problem. Even in the most developed cities you can run into people relieving themselves in very unexpected manner. However, the people who engage in this behavior are a very small part of the total population. They are the poorest of the poor and it is our responsibility as a people to help uplift them out of the miserable hells they are living in.
I have many Chinese friends as I have also lived in China for a considerable time. They all tell me that open defecation, spitting in public and generally unpleasant behaviors like this used to be pretty common until 10-20 years ago when a significant population was poor and illiterate. Even now if you go to some parts of China you'll see that public defecation and lack of privacy in bathrooms is the norm.
These are human problems which are mainly due to poverty and illiteracy. Things are getting better and in a decade or two, I hope this wont be a problem anymore.
If you leave the sanitation problems aside, I believe we have a lot more in common than anything that seperates us including Islam. We also have Islam and some of the best Muslims in this world. During the Delhi riots, Hindus and Muslims also protected and sheltered whoever they knew from the other community in order to protect each other. If you try to open your heart you will see we have a lot more common than you and Turkey or Saudi. Try to examine the lives of your relatives in India, and you'll notice that the once to diligently worked hard to come up in their lives have indeed found a happy and peaceful life. Even today a lot of the Mughal heritage is celebrated and revered in India including the architecture, literature, poetry, cuisine, customs, language, etc. India has been a cradle of civlization and a melting pot for the whole world.
The news has been getting very negative as that's what drives TRPs but I hope to see a better day when we can keep our biases aside and appreciate things for what they are.
However, look at what's happening nowadays. In my opinion, India had the upper moral stance due to them being a democracy, and that democracy is slowly and gradually perishing. The masses of India have gone so insane that they have now started speaking openly and loudly against Nehru and Gandhi, 2 nationalist but humanitarian people I myself admire. These same masses elected a person, who we know as Narendra Modi, and no matter how much you deny it, we all know India is losing the values that its founders wanted to be there. Modi was a part of the RSS and today leads the BJP which is under the RSS anyways, and please I don't want to go into it, but we all know the nasty stuff they have in their books and believe in. Pakistan, yes we lost our founder's values way long ago, around the time of Zia-ul-Haq. Now that you guys are going down the same path, I suggest Indians stop believing that they have the moral upper hand.
And yes, I do want peace between India and Pakistan, sure, but in my opinion that can't happen until we both return to what our founders wanted. Pakistan is making progress on that, especially ever since the internet became available, liberalization is going on, India on the other hand is going on the total opposite side. Mind giving an explanation?
