aatif misbehavd wid jury still he was calld a warrior. he may b a gud captain bt 4 me, he has cm out as a vry ill mannerd n arrogant prsn.
i don't think bharat pak cn evr b friends. sorry, i don't want such fake friendships.
Thanks for agreeing with me.
Yes, Pakistani judges were equally biased as well. Ghulam Ali would give 0's to the Indian singers, when they deserved a 10 and he would give 10's to the Pakistani singers when they deserved a 0. I felt the same about Abida sometimes, too.
As for Atif, I felt he was quite rude sometimes. Even if an Indian singer sang will, he would still say "aur baither ho sakta tha". However, even if a Pakistani singer didn't do so well, he would say they were good. I mean yea, it is the job of the coach to encourage but I don't think it was right of the coach to discourage others. That's my opinion. Then he would argue with the judges. I think it was uncalled for. I have always liked his songs and will continue to do so, as for him, I don't think so.
There is a difference between being patriotic and being ethnocentric. One means to have love for your country and the other one means that you think you're better than the rest. And of course, it brought out an ethnocentric reaction from both sides.
Then there is this whole issue where people start to bring in religion. I saw this one comment on Twitter, where someone tweeted something to the lines of, "I am glad Aman got a 0, Nabeel sang better than this dirty Hindu". I was appalled after reading this. Where did religion come from? What does religion have to do with this anyways? And if someone thinks their religion is better, then keep it to yourself.
One thing I love about living in NYC is that people MOST people don't think like this. I go to school with people from all over the world, who are of different religions. I make friends, not because of the religion they follow or if they are from my culture. They are my friends because of who they are as individuals. I have Hindu, Sikh, Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, Jewish, Atheist, etc. friends and I respect them all. Unfortunately, in countries such as Pakistan, where the majority are Muslims, they don't get to experience this stuff. Same thing goes with India, unless you're in one of the major cities such as Mumbai. Thus, they think they and their religion are better than the next person. Just as all the fingers on our hands aren't all the same length, same goes for people, everyone is different. I am just saying what I feel about some (or many) people in general. So yea, I don't think India and Pakistan can be friends again either. And this is the reason.
One thing I do love about India is the fact that it's a democracy. It doesn't have a state religion. Being 80%+ Hindus, we have a Sikh PM, when Sikhs only make up about 2-3% of the entire population. Muslims, Christians, etc. too have prominent positions in business and the government. I just hope that more people open up and accept others regardless. And I don't think this show established that, what-so-ever. Please, no more of this show! Now, I just hope people reading this don't think I am bashing a religion, country, etc. Even if they do think that, then let it be.
I know I have partially gone off topic, so I'll end this post with a
