Transcript Harmony thru marriage ^v Racial Bigotry is on the rebound! Minorities are the world over, suffering from an indifference directed at their customs and beliefs. An indifference that all to often boils over into an intolerance toward, and violence against, that minority. Battle lines are being drawn to combat injustices brought on by ignorance and/or misunderstanding a person's actions or beliefs, that so often precede racial bigotry and discord. In hopes of pre-empting any future discord, and for future racial harmony, two personal views on customs and religion follows, for inteiJectuai enlightenment on two minorities that are quickly rising to greater prominance in America! Many people ask me about the customs of my native country and of my religion. Mainly they ask about the difficulties and the differences in practicing customs here versus there. Integrating customs when moving from one country to another can be difficult or easy depending on how one looks at it. If practicing certain customs is enjoyed by the participants, however bizarre they may seem to others, all that matters is that customs are enjoyed. I personally have had very little difficulty in integrating my customs and religious beliefs into life in America. I enjoy the traditions that have been practiced by my ancestors and hope to continue practicing them. One of the major customs that we practice in America, that we have brought from our country of India, is the practice of arranged marriages. Quite recently in fact, my sister was married to someone she had met for only a few days. The way this came about, like in many Muslim families in India and Pakistan, is that the parents of the male ask the parents of the female for her hand in marriage. Questions have been asked as to why, men and women tend to be separated at religious functions and social gatherings. If they are not allowed to date each other and do not meet each other in gatherings, then how do they meet? In most cases, it is through recommendations tc the parents on both sides about a potential male or females's qualifications, or whether they meet the standards that are decided upon. In addition, the mother of the male may see a girl who she thinks is suitable for her son at a gathering and may try tc find out as much as possible about her and her family, before approaching her on this matter. In India and Pakistan, when you marry someone your family must necessarily become a part of their family. Therefore, if the family of one or the other sides dislike each other, then the chances of the mar riage going through are very slim. 310 ■ Issues
