      Just in case you know, music and art has been in culture of this land since many centuries. If your parents were ARAB, I pity you. If your parents were INDIAN then I pity them for having such a loser child.

      • Faisal

        I agree with you Mr. Guest but we have to done that in our own way / culture. We people are now not innovative. Indians are adopting American culture and so we are following Indians culture.
        Turkish culture is also promoting by media is another propaganda can’t we stick to our own culture?

        • Shahid Saleem

          Honestly, what culture is that? Can you tell us what Pakistani culture is? Think in terms of literature, arts, etc.

          Is it Mughal culture? Everyone knows they came to india to CONQUER and loot, not to spread Islam. Same with kings of Afghanistan, Iran, etc.

      • Yasir Mahmood

        And you must be the Homo ,From both of them??
        And Listen.We would be Proud if being incinerated from Arabs
        But pity on Such retard like you who Bows before American Fathers.

        • Shahid Saleem

          Arab worshipper. Go live with Arabs and their racism.

          • Yasir Mahmood

            Proud to be the Ummati of An Arab,Enough for a Muslim.
            Dont know whats ur Belief either

            • Shahid Saleem

              100% failure on your part. My belief is what My Prophet (SAW) said:

              All mankind is from Adam and Eve, an Arab has no superiority over a non-Arab nor a non-Arab has any superiority over an Arab

              I am sure, You will find it in all books of Hadith! Whatever you believe about Arabs being “better” IS 100% AGAINST WHAT OUR PROPHET SAID.

              You are free to believe whatever you want, I choose to believe in what My Prophet and My religion teaches. Who’s the retard now?

              Correct yourself before day of judgement, or suffer the consequences.

    • hamary baap dada ny kbhi Facebook bhi nae use ki thi… dude you may need to expand your imaginations.

  • Yasir Mahmood

    First
    1:You are No One to Predict Consequences For Some one on Day of judgement

    2: No One Said About Arab are Superior ,But you Better Said Superiority is Based Upon Piety.
    3: Music Or Whatever ,has never been in our culture.

    Racist are not Only Arabs,Its More Suffered in West and America ,Even in Indo/Pak ,So better Call yourself a Racist , then Claim Others

    • Shahid Saleem

      Point #1: hundred percent true. But if someone goes around saying things 100% contrary to what the Prophet (SAW) said… what are we supposed to think?

      Point #2: You actually said “Proud to be the Ummati of An Arab” explain whY you used “Arab” race in that. Couldn’t you have said “Proud to be the Ummati of a Muslim? You used the word Arab for a reason. Can you openly explain why…

      Point #3: That’s clearly not true, Music has been associated with Muslims in this part of the world for centuries. Maybe you meant to say “Music has never been part of our RELIGION.” But we are not discussing religion, we are discussing CULTURE. And we’re back at the problem where you say THIS is not part of our culture or THAT is not part of our culture, but you cannot define WHAT IS part of our culture.

      Having lived in Arab World and in US, I can safely say, less racism in parts of the West, more among Arabs. Arabs discriminate against other Arabs all the time. Even today, people in Saudi Arabia are named “Al-Hindi” or “Al-Turki” even though their families emigrated from those lands centuries ago and settled in Saudi Arabia.

      • Yasir Mahmood

        Boss
        Are we supposed to Follow culture of our Ancestors after Becoming a Muslim?

        Even in the case like music which is Clearly Prohibited in Islam,are we to Continue Following our CULTURE beyond RELIGION?

        • Shahid Saleem

          You’re still confused. Have I said we should promote or play Music? Read the entire comments I have made, I NEVER EVEN IMPLIED THAT. Did I say you should dance in the streets to disco music? Read to understand, please.

          You keep bringing up religion but our religion doesn’t say anything about “culture”. In Arab lands, when Islam came down, the only thing that stopped was cultural things that were against Islam. Like names of people that were like shirk. Like killing civilians in battles. Things like that. Nothing else changed. Some things were modified, but MOST things were unaffected. Everything that wasn’t against teachings of Islam was still permitted.

          All I keep asking is, WHAT IS OUR CULTURE. You live here, you go outside and interact with Pakistanis everyday, why is it so hard to explain what our culture IS? Why is the first statement about what our culture ISN’T?
