Issues (2): ResilienceThe story of Rashid Minhas is different from usual tales of patriotism in three aspects:
- Moral judgment
The crux of the fateful incident was timing and fast-thinking: he had to decide and act in less then ten minutes, and he did that. What elements in personality enable us to be like this? Is it also related to the fact that he didn’t think negatively, he respected not only his own heroes but also of other people and yet his love for his own country was non-negotiable? How is it related with self-respect? What is true self-respect? Teachers can encourage the students to explore these issues when they teach them about Rashid Minhas in schools.
