Racism, Slavery and Prejudice in Pakistan
Islam is the most anti-racist and anti-prejudicial way of life. Islamic history
testifies to the openness Muslims have shown towards people of different cultures
and religions. Within their own ranks, sincere and practicing Muslims have always
kept their hearts and minds open to their brethren, no matter what their background.
Yet, there is a problem in the Ummah today. Prejudices are not the problems
of others. They have become the very sad reality amongst a number of Muslims
This is not just on the level of small minority Muslim communities in non-Muslim
lands. It is also a problem in "Islamic" countries as well. Years
of nationalism in theory and practice have diminished the powerful universality
Muslims cherished in their societies.
