Birth of kashmir

An ingenious example of speech and politics occurred recently in the United Nations Assembly that made the world community smile.

A representative from India began: ‘Before beginning my talk I want to tell you something about Rishi Kashyap of Kashmir, after whom Kashmir is named.

When he struck a rock and it brought forth water, he thought, ‘What a good opportunity to have a bath.’

He removed his clothes, put them aside on the rock and entered the water.

When he got out and wanted to dress, his clothes had vanished. A Pakistani had stolen them.’

The Pakistani representative jumped up furiously and shouted, ‘What are you talking about? The Pakistanis weren’t there then.’

The Indian representative smiled and said, ‘And now that we have made that clear, I will begin my speech.’

The whole thing you addressed in a funny way, has a great truth to it 🙂 The Muslims as a community have always asked for an “Islamic nation”, rarely has secularism been given a place or chance in their society. The existence of Pakistan an Islamic nation is clear proof, when there are Sikhs, Jains, Hindus, Buddhists and many more clans in India, only the Muslims had to ask for a country. And even after such a formation, West Pakistan itself ended destroying East Pakistan and violating their women. The communal, divisive politics that Pakistan is built on has no place in the world today.
