My Pakistani friend Sajjad Azhar Pirzada is a journalist who lives and works in Lahore.
He has taken many interviews of me, given below
Here is the interview in which I said that India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh are really one country, Partition was a British swindle, and we must reunite
In this interview I praised the great Emperor Akbar, calling him the real father of the Indian nation, whose path of suleh-e-kul ( respect for all religions ) was the correct path which Indians must follow
Sajjad is thoroughly secular, as these interviews disclose
Sajjad is a remarkable man. He lost his earlier jobs as he refused to insult or hurl invectives and vituperations at India, as demanded by his then bosses. He believes that there should be good relations between the two countries, and refused to compromise on his principles, as many journalists do.
He has been married twice. His first marriage, which was an arranged one, was with a woman from an ultra orthodox Muslim family. Now Sajjad is totally secular, as mentioned above, and he often goes to the Krishna temple in Lahore, where his friend Pandit Kashi Ram is the priest, who applies tika on Sajjad’s forehead whenever he visits the temple.
