You are human first, religion and country second

Just after watching the movie, I had to go back and forth a thousand times. I thought I had to express all the troubles in my heart in one breath.
I'll admit, I cried when the little girl shouted "Long live Hanuman" and that's when the movie ended. In the picture, the high two-layer barbed wire is connected by the two hugging people in the middle. On both sides are the deep guards of the two peoples. This is the power of love. In the face of kindness and bravery, the whole world is on your side. .
I have to admit that this film cuts in from so many angles of religion, politics, humanities, and law, but I am moved because it is too real, and the real thing is like it happened to me. Because I am a Hui Muslim born in Xinjiang, in this special place, with a special identity, there are too many similar situations.
I don’t know if you have noticed that the entire movie is run through religion, because Pakistan and India are political conflicts due to religious reasons, including the Kashmir region also mentioned in the movie. From the very beginning, when my mother took the little girl to the mosque in India, she had already explained that because of the war, that very effective mosque had become an Indian one, and it could only go abroad if she went abroad, and those who had joined the army could not go to India. The little girl was kind and lost herself in this unknown place in India for the sake of the little lamb, but the little girl didn't say a word to stop her mother. The male protagonist participates in a Hindu celebration here. After that, it is not the male protagonist who takes in the little girl, but the little girl who accepts the male protagonist. The male protagonist always thinks the little girl is a Brahman. When he sees the little girl eating meat, he comforts himself that the little girl is a Kshatriya. He cannot accept that she is a heretic. In his heart, religion is above everything else. on a sacred position. But what happened later was a step-by-step compromise on his religion. Girlfriend taught him "I don't care what religion she is, he's just a little girl". After all, the Brahmin family cannot tolerate Muslims even a little girl, a very harmless little girl.
In order to send the little girl back, this also allows us to see the complicated side of India. On the one hand, it controls desires, but on the other hand, it also drinks and eats meat, prostitution and whoring, and doing illegal activities. When he was determined to send the little girl back, he still thought that his god Hanuman was helping him achieve this goal. He got the help of the stowaways, but he still insisted on his moral bottom line, and he must obtain permission before he can cross the border. The little girl was even more "smarter" than him here, and kept pulling him to let him go. Maybe the male protagonist is really stupid. After all, he took the exam eleven times before he passed the exam, but it is precisely because of this that he believes in the truth and love of the world, and is willing to love, believe, and persist like a fool.
He has been telling the truth from the very beginning, but he also knows to stay away from the police. A frustrated reporter has witnessed everything about him. All the people on the road have no hostility to him because he is from India. Do your best to help him. Especially when he found himself terrified after a sleep in the mosque, but when the elder teacher came, he didn't ask any reason and said, "The mosque accepts no matter who you are, so we never lock it. The door” will be combined with the Chinese term later. This elder shocked the male protagonist the most. The male protagonist put on the robe of a Muslim woman, so that when he finally parted, the elder said "Allah is the greatest" and the male protagonist also returned to "Allah is the greatest" and suddenly realized that something was wrong , and changed it to Long Live Hanuman, the elder also replied Long Live Hanuman, how open-minded, people with religious beliefs began to accept other religions, no violence, no threats and discrimination, just a hug.
Along the way, the little girl and the reporter also learned how he folded his hands to the monkey, and the children on the hillside also learned the movements of his monkey god. Everything is so natural and simple, and everyone is like a child. In this world, there is only respect and infinite curiosity about the world. On the other hand, the heroine's father imagined what kind of torture he would receive. Love is the driving force leading to everything. When the male protagonist walked into another mosque in order to pray for the little girl, his heart was actually struggling, but when he heard that all the praises came from the heart, it is what human beings should be. When he had the power, he still cried. He was also a child. He believed in the beauty of the world. He still believed in the kindness of people. Religion is only the carrier of the human heart, not the purpose.
In order to protect the little girl, he also lied and deceived the police, because he knew that there is no need to be truthful about ugliness. His truth should be given to people who are truly kind and loving. He wants to send the little girl home, although he Strongly argued for his actions but he did it anyway. But he finally sacrificed his freedom to protect the little girl. At this time, when people started to pay attention to this story through the Internet, the TV station began to report. His face, but tried his best to get the male protagonist to confess that he was a spy. But in the end, with the support of everyone, the male protagonist returned to his homeland, and when he turned back, he replied "Allah is the greatest", and the little girl also replied "Long live Hanuman". This is just a testimony of the friendship of two people, there is no religion at this time, there are only two people who are connected by love.
Conflict, contradiction, interests, public opinion. The reporter's sentence is very good, "the TV station only reports hatred, not love." Just like everyone, they only hope to expand hatred, but do not want to sincerely praise. The government is also striving to protect its own face and expand hatred. Fortunately, everyone can tell right from wrong. The soldiers on the border said, "Compared with so many of you, we are only a minority." The mercenaries are only a minority. Most people understand love. Let him go.
I really feel very emotional, as a Muslim in Xinjiang, in China, a country dominated by the Han nationality, the problem of eating is more serious than in the movie, and religion is in a dark area that cannot be clearly stated. It's hard for me to imagine a Chinese Muslim saying things like Long Live the Buddha. Everything is a very serious political issue, and people have lost the ability to love each other. A religion should be inclusive, shared, not blocked by barbed wire, nor blocked by ethnic groups. But in the face of religion, first of all, if we are a person, a living person, we have the ability to love, respect others, and accept others.
Because I'm a Muslim myself, this shocks me more than anyone else. Acceptance and love are the hardest parts. Parents teach us from childhood, religious etiquette, teach us not to intermarry with other races. It is difficult for the local religion to accept a person from another religion, and it would be a disaster for anyone to marry a non-Muslim. A lot of times there is nothing I can do too, like being in Kashmir, I believe in love, I want acceptance, I respect everything. So I wish I was a pitifully stupid monkey god, first I am a human being, and second I am a Muslim and a Chinese.

    The high intention is shocking. Religious countries dare to discuss religious boundaries, and class society dares to transcend class narrowness. Love, humanity, will become a passport without borders. This may not be reality, but at least it is discussed, praised, and disseminated in the movie. Should we reflect on it, do we have such a mind.
