First, what is this man box? It's the rules that men have to obey to fit in society, and to not be criticized for being different. It ranges from how a man is supposed to act, his limitations, and his behavior towards others. This box shows men that they are not supposed to cross a certain line, or else they have to be prepared to suffer the consequences. These consequences go from personal insults, physical violence and even murder. This box is supposed to police men on how to become real ''men''.

The article “France: pas de niqab à l’Opéra Bastille’’ was published on October 22, 2014 by LaPresse and written by Emilie Cote. This article demonstrates the injustice that women wearing the niqab live with in France. In fact, a law adopted in 2010 obligates women that are wearing a niqab or any other clothes that could hide their face to not show up in public space. This is why, October 3rd, a Muslim women assisting to the Opera La Traviata de Verdi was expelled during the intermission. Some of the singers were not comfortable with the presence of a woman wearing a niqab.

In the article “Is Everyone a Little Bit Racist” of Nicholas Kristof published in August 2014, the reality of racism is discussed.  The main point of his article is about the widespread racism and stereotyping that young black men in America suffer. The problem is not really too much racism in America. In his article he explains that there are still many racist people without even knowing it. The larger problem is the people who consider themselves not racist. They deplore discrimination and believe in racial equality but unconsciously, they have a racist attitude.

It is quite simple to begin making the comparison on the similarities that India/Pakistan and Canada/Quebec have in common. For instance, the first comparison we can establish is that these two countries, India and Canada were both colonized by British. Another similarity that can be taken into consideration is the fact that when we look at Canada, Quebec plays the minority role in our country. This is similar to India and how Muslims play the minority role while Hindus play the majority role.

There are many comparisons we can make about the issue of minorities and majorities in India and Canada due to their different nations composing the same country.

Both India and Canada have been a British colony. Where Canada’s problem began when the English came, India’s problem is at the heart of the country. The separation in Canada is mostly in Quebec (where the colony was at the time) and it is between english speaking people (which came from Britain) and the french speaking people (which came from France). The separation in India is between muslims and hindus, and is not located a particular region. In Quebec, some have the idea to make our province a country but it is not the majority who share this thought.

I think that there are advantages and disadvantages of having many religions in a society. The main advantage is that it helps us learn about different cultures, which means that people are more likely to accept different worldviews because they will have been exposed to many points of view when growing up. Also, this causes our population to be more diversed. The most commun disadvantage to a multicultural society is that it is hard to please everyone, such as minorities who want special accommodations like having their religious holidays or having the right to carry a kirpan.

In my view, religion should be something personal. If one of the main goals of religion is the respect, then it means that it’s the respect of the person you are but also of the others around you. You must respect them and not impose your beliefs to others. The society today shouts that we are more tolerant, that we have made progress and that we are more open to other religions…it's true, the problem is that this “open mind” creates conflicts in the society. When everybody has its own beliefs, everyone thinks they own the truth.

To begin, I think that the place of religion in society should be private. Here are my thoughts on this topic. I have absolutely no problem with any religion and I have absolutely no problem with anyone who believes in a particular religion. I love diversity because that is what makes us open ourselves and grow in the inside. However, I think that for society's and every individual's best interests, religion needs to stay private. I just want to say that going to church or to the mosque is absolutely fine, but promoting a particular religion publically should not be done.
