“Christmas gives us the opportunity to pause and reflect on the important things around us – a time when we can look back on the year that has passed and prepare for the year ahead.” ~David Cameron
As David Cameron said, Christmas is the festival of new beginning and happiness then why we can’t be happy? Why we can’t do what we want to do? Why are we not free? Are we living in a country that got independence in 1947? If yes, then why we are bounded by our thoughts and thinking?
Yes, our thinking is so narrow-minded and thoughts are rooted so deep in the ground!
I am talking rubbish! As Uttar Pradesh’s, the Hindu Jagran Manch begs to change. They threatened Christian schools in Aligarh if any of the school will celebrate Christmas.
Hindu Jagran Manch suspect it is a step towards ‘forced conversion’
According to the Times of India, “HJM, a right-wing Hindutva group has issued a warning to Christian schools in Aligarh not to celebrate Christmas in institutions where Hindu students are in majority.”
Savita, the city president of Hindu Jagran Manch told TOI, ” Hindu students are “being asked to bring toys, gifts and celebrate Christmas” and this he believes is an easy way to lure them to Christianity.”
“The spirit of Christmas is the spirit of love and of generosity and of goodness. It illuminates the picture window of the soul, and we look out upon the world’s busy life and become more interested in people than in things.” ~ Thomas S. Monson. So keep this spirit in you and celebrate the festival of love with all love!
