A HINDU WHO WAS FORCED TO EMBRACE ISLAM

Once, there lived a very pious Hindu who
always worshiped the Divine Mother and chanted
Her name.
When the Mussalmans conquered the country, they
forced him to embrace Islam. They said to him:
“You are now a Mussalmans. Say ‘Allah’. From now
on you must repeat only the name of ‘Allah’.” With
great difficulty he repeated the word ‘Allah’, but
every now and then blurted out ‘Jagadamba’. At
that the Mussalmans were about to beat him.
Thereupon he said to them: ‘I beseech you! Please
do not kill me. I have been trying my utmost to
repeat the name of Allah, but our Jagadamba has
filled me up to the throat. She pushes out your
Allah”.
It is not an easy thing to destroy old tendencies.
