Before Partition 8 (at KOHAT NWFP )

While sitting going in the past memories I remembered that once I was playing and passed from lane I saw neighbour a Muslim bhai butchering the BATER a tiny bird .What he was doing it is still clear in mind that he was catching hold the neck of the bird and just twisting and throwing on the ground bleeding.Like wise There I saw one day Cocks were being butchered by cutting the neck with knife.On seeing these scenes I used to hate this cruelty to animals. Once I that the test of seeing which dog is strong enough was to lift the small dog by ears if that dog cried then it was not supposed to be of good quality.I was carrying a small pet dog for a walk but the pet dog any how freed from me and those fierce dog ate my pet and i could save it from the clutches of the big dog.This was the reason that we all were vegetarians.Mostly the Hindus used to be vegetarian as the religion teaches us to be have pity on all the animals and birds. even we use to feed aunts and birds as these are also the creations of God .When we cannot give life to any body as such we got no right to kill any creature.I think this ideology of our religion is good.When the partition took place i was then about 7 years old.,but still remember all what had happened ? the old books of class poems used be like this as ;
IK DIN LALOO ROTE AYE AANSU SE MOOUN DHOTE AYE
AMMA NE POOCHHA KUIN ROTE HO ABBA NE MAAR UYUN ROTA HUIN

This was the culture in those days the British used to teach us in those days .This was the culture and we were being taught darker side of civilization.On the other hand in British schools we had to sing prayer LONG LIVE THE KING THE GEORGE PANCHAM__
