RELIGIOUS MARGINALIZATION: A COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS OF BHAGAT’S THE THREE MISTAKES OF MY LIFE AND JAVED’S ASHES, WINE AND DUST

Selina Aziz, Sidra Ahmad, Shehzad Ahmed, Amer Akhtar.




Abstract

The current study endeavors to reveal religious marginalization faced by minorities in Pakistan and India through comparative analysis of Ashes, Wine and Dust and The Three Mistakes of My Life. In the light of Spivak’s theory of othering and Pandey’s definition of identity, the research reveals the injustice, bigotry and oppression experienced by the religious minorities. The relationship between religion and nationality fostered during Partition still dictates the national policy of India and Pakistan. The aura associated with religion and the devotion towards a country taken to an extreme target those with different religious orientation. With harbingers of peace silenced by the extremist groups, minorities rarely get a chance to play a constructive role in the progress of a nation. The solution is to be tolerant and accepting as prosperity needs diversity and without the incorporation of all groups, these two countries are wasting a precious resource that will not only play a positive role but will also help in moving forward.

Key words: Religious marginalization; religious minorities; comparative analysis.
