It was great moments for me when I started my first job with an organization working in the areas of training and development. I found it a very talented team of professionals who provided me nice working environment and we all became friends soon.
In my entire job period I had to coordinate with Zane Green and Reuben Gomez who had different religious background as they were Christians by religion. The communication was not only based on office work but we occasionally discussed all social matters on lunch times and regular table talks.
I was a bit insecure to work under their supervision only because of religious differences. In fact I never found any unusual dissimilarity in our perceptions and feelings for others right from the very first day. I found them friendly, sincere and kind to me in all aspects of life. Therefore my insecurity had been removed within few weeks and then I started feeling and perceiving them in relatively different manners.
Later I attended church mourning ceremony on the death of Zane’s father and also visited Reuben’s house on his father’s death to share grief and condolence with them and their families. These were considerable moments in my life, which helped me to think out of the box. My relationship with them was also extremely useful because it altered my uncertainty and false perceptions about non Muslims or Christians living in my society.
