I have a new discovery I can't help but share: Sikhism is the fusion of Muslim and Hindu religious principles. That makes me a Sikh, I guess: Indian first name + Muslim surname = Sikh blogger. I guess I should walk around wearing a turban and lending people cold cash at
usurious reasonable rates. (Is Bangladesh's Yunnus/Grameen Bank Sikh? Oh no, his first name is Muhammad.) Even the costume of the Sikhs is a combination of features from both great religions: turban + robe + sword. I bet you didn't know that. What's tragic, though, is that the Sikhs were never successful in neutralizing both elements, the Muslim and the Hindu; they instead formed a third religion in India that's often mistaken in the outside world as fundamentalist Muslim and thus the poor Sikhs are easily suspected as, you're right, terrorists. But even Sikhs are not spared of extremism. The plane that recently crashed in Canada, killing all 300+ passengers, was reported to be the handiwork of Sikh extremists. As atheists would sigh with much relish, "Ah, religion."
