Thank you for your enlightening comments as always!
You might have seen your dr saab drifting a bit too much towards Pakistan. How much of it is part of the aging process and how much of it is the grave threat from Modi of the Hindutva India? I can only guess. One thing is sure for me: my elders were born and raised in India and I have heard the first hand experiences of their generation. And I am a keen student of history. I have written books on history of India and Hindus after diligent research, also biographies of Quaid-e-Azam M.A. Jinnah and the Pakistan Movement. So I understand the situation better than most of our friends.
8:60 Make ready for them all the power you can muster, and all the equipment you can mobilize so that you may deter the enemies of God, and your enemies. And others beside them whom you know not, but God knows them. Whatever wealth and effort you spend on your defenses, will be your expenditure in the cause of God, and it will be repaid to you generously. And you shall not be wronged at all.
