Anal Haq and Aham Brahmasmi

How many reams of paper have been spent writing about Aham Brahmasmi? Countless. How many times has Anal Haq been explained by writers and scholars?
But how many times has it been written that both have a strikingly similar meaning?
Why do we do this? Is it because we are afraid of exploring meanings of new terms? Or to open up to different cultures? Or to share what we know? Are we afraid to think aloud? Do we think we will be offending others’ sentiments if we speak the truth?

After all, is being politically correct the only aim of a civilized society?

Dear Rishi,

Basheer has written about the similarities between two in one of his short stories.

Mansoor who originally is thought to have uttered 'Anal Haq' was (and probably is not) not accepted by the strict Quran followers.

Not much is written about Mansoor or his Anal Haq, because, probably the people who believed in it have not written about it much.
